Greene County

Book Description:

Where President Andrew Johnson kept the folks in stitches.... Greene County, Tennessee! Early days in Greene County, TN, are recalled in this spiral bound booklet composed of colorful tales, factual data and individual biographies excerpted from several sources, including the rare book: History of Tennessee, originally published by Goodspeed Publishing Co. in 1887. The 41-page 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. Despite its overly long paragraphs and lack of good illustrations, the booklet provides a wealth of information. The first paragraph alone, for instance, describes the terrain, tells of the first settler, the first white child born, names of many other early settlers, and discusses early churches. The following pages cover attitutes toward slavery, a convention of the Friends Church with names of delegates, the first Methodist Society in the state, County organization and early magistrates, the first grand jury, the State of Franklin, the circuit court, the chancery court, members of the legal profession, Thomas D. Arnold, the City of Greeneville, merchants, education, Tusculum Academy, newspapers, and the names of many county officials including some as far back as 1783. This biography section of this booklet is a goldmine of information for genealogy seekers, usually giving the names of parents, spouse, in-laws, children, siblings, etc., as well as military service, politics, residence and occupation, in the course of which it often adds tidbits to the history of the area: J.C. Ayers, Marion L. Bailey, Dr. G.N. Bailey, George A. Bailey, Christian Bible, Capt. John C. Bible, Capt. Thomas Bible, W.C. Black, Dr. John R. Boyd, James H. Bright, Col. A.J. Brown, James L.
