Hardeman County, a portion of what is known as west Tennessee, was erected on 16 October 1823 from the Western District and was named in honor of Col. Thomas Jones Hardeman. Settlement of this county was begun in 1819 when Co. Ezekiel Polk, grandfather of President James K. Polk came into the area with other settlers. These court minutes give the day by day actions of running a county with deed transfers, divorces, bondage order, road orders, orphan actions, etc. The full text of the volume is transcribed and not just an abstraction. This resource provide a good insight into the goings on in the county during this time period.
