- Obion County,
Tennessee, Court Minutes, 1849-1861
- During this time
frame, Lake County was still a part of Obion County.
Among other duties, this court appointed estate administrators and
guardians, settled estates when there was no will, cared for county
paupers, created new districts and set boundaries, reported election
results, and appointed a seemingly endless list of road crews.
Insolvent tax lists reflect migrations of Obion County residents to
other counties or states. One item of interest was the appointment of
each district's Civil War home guard or “minutemen” with their
officers. There are also many slaves named, sometimes with their ages
and relationships identified.
Carolina Marriages and Obituaries, 1826-1854
abstracts were taken from early newspapers, The Greenville Republican,
first published in 1826, called The Greenville Mountaineer after 1829
and abstracted through 1849, and The Laurensville Herald, first
published in 1845, and abstracted 1845-1846 and 1853-1854.
South Carolina did not require a marriage bond or license until 1911,
so newspapers are the best source for records of marriages. The authors
have abstracted as exactly as possible, including the newspapers'
spelling of names. Each editor spelled the way he wanted, so there are
some variations in the same names.
