Warren County, Tennessee Deed Book "A" - 1808-1818
Betty M. Majors
This publication contains land transfers, deeds of gift, powers of attorney for distribution of estates, and heirs selling portions of their inheritance. Also included is information of the utmost value to researchers: The sale of land warrants received by Revolutionary War soldiers for military service.
When available, the precise location of property is provided in the Surveyor's District with Range and Section, including the bounding property owners, streams, mills, fords, and roads. Since lists of early inhabitants of Warren County are limited to the 1806 Petitions for the formation of the county and the 1812 Tax List of the county, these deeds give another "census" of pioneers living in the county between the years of 1808 and 1818.
