Henderson County

Book Description:

Early days in Henderson County, TN, recalled in this new 36 page spiral bound booklet compiled from excerpts from the rare 1887 book: History of Tennessee, originally published by Goodspeed Publishing Co. in 1887, and other sources. The booklet is printed one-sided on 60# paper with the print enlarged for easier reading. A vinyl sheet has been added to protect the front cover. Containing overly long paragraphs and lacking illustrations, the booklet nevertheless holds a wealth of information. The first paragraph, for instance, describes the terrain, tells what or who the creeks were named for, discusses soil erosion, water, cotton, soil, minerals, and the need for railroad transportation. Other subjects covered include: Early settlers, early marriages; the formation of the county; who the county was named for; public buildings, churches, early political disputes, schools, Lexington: the county seat, businesses in Lexington, newspapers, lodges, and smaller towns: Sardis, Scott's Hill, Juno, Independence, Barren Springs, Long (formerly Middlebury), Crucifer and Lone Elm. The next section of the booklet contains biographies of prominent residents (in 1887): Jackson Anderson, William Barry, G.W. Beacham, Felix Bray, W.F. Brooks, J.L. Cochran, A.B. Cunningham, R.A. Davidson, P.J. Dennison, Clark Diffee, James Dodds, Wm. Elkins, Euphrates Flake, G.W. Florence, H.W. Foster, James Fuller, M.L. Galloway, J.N. Hall, Issac W. Hassell, Samuel Howard, J.W.H.
