Lewis and Hickman County

Book Description:

Early days in Lewis County and Hickman County in Central Tennessee, are recalled in this spiral bound booklet compiled from excerpts from the 1887 book: History of Tennessee, originally published by Goodspeed Publishing Co., and several other sources. The 45-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. The murder or suicide of Meriwether Lewis (famous as one of the leaders of the Lewis and Clark Expedition) at a tavern here not only put Lewis County on the map, so to speak, but provided a name for it. Today there is a National Monument at the site of the famous explorer's death. Other items in the history of this county include a description of the land, names of early settlers and early county officials, and a little on the various communities of Newburg, Hohenwald, Voorhies, Carpenter's Station, and Palestine. We've added some other references to clarify (or add more confusion) to the death of Lewis. There are only three biographies for Lewis County: Z.V. Dabbs, Samuel L. Massey, and James W. Stockard. Hickman County was named for a surveyor who was killed by Indians while surveying the area. The history portion for this county includes names of early settlers, description of the land, early mills and other enterprises, controversy over the selection of a county seat, the court house, county officials, participants in the war with Mexico, the Civil War, the town of Centreville, with names of businesses, Pine Wood, Schools, and Churches. The WPA Guide adds an Indian legend. The biographies for Hickman County include: Jasper A. Bates, John M. Bates, William George Clagett, Horatio Clagett, Sidney A. Craig, Ephraim A. Dean, James H. Erwin, Samuel L. Graham, James Franklin Martin, James M. Meacham, Col. John H. Moore, Orville A. Nixon, Dr. Andrew Norris, Walter S. Nunnelly, William H. Phillips, Joseph H. Russell, Dr. Campbell Slayden, Dr. Elisha G. Thompson, John T. Walker, and Dr. S. McE. Wilson.
