Helen Marsh and Timothy Marsh
These volumes are taken from legal records of this parent county of middle Tennessee. Davidson County was formed from Indian land in 1783, and it encompassed a major portion of middle Tennessee that originally included: Bedford, Cheatham, Marshall, Maury, Rutherford, part of Robertson, Sumner, and Williamson Counties. These three volumes together contain the names of approximately 45,000 of the earliest settlers of this area. Each is filled with original North Carolina Military Grants issued to soldiers who served in the North Carolina Continental Line. This vast Military Reservation encompassed a 55 mile strip that covered all of the Northern half of middle Tennessee. These are companion volumes to the 2 volumes of Davidson Co., TN. Wills, 1784-1832. The index for this volume mentions over 14,000 persons.
