TN Gen Publications
  • 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.
  • South Carolina Marriages and Obituaries, 1826-1854
    •  "These 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.
