WHITE & OVERTON COUNTY, TN
RECORDS

| OVERTON COUNTY | WHITE COUNTY |


The following White County and Overton County, TN records are a compilation of abstracts contributed by Carol A. Selander and Jo Carolyn Beebe. Carol is a descendant of Nathan BARTLETT and Peggy HUNTER, as is Jo Carolyn, who also has in her ancestry Joshua BARTLETT and Winney HERRING and Robert BARTLETT and Mary WARREN. There are some duplications of records, but different transcriptions. This is the result of hours of research, transcribing, typing, etc. It would be so nice if you would drop them a note and thank them for sharing it with us.

"Tennessee County Records included White County Minute Book records. The names in the index were quite clear. However, many of the pages of the records were too faded to read. These had been transcribed in 1837 and then typed as a WPA project in the 1930s. It seems that the men of White Co spent a great deal of time serving on "a jury of good and lawful men" or building roads. I've listed BARTLETT names or affiliated names that I recognized. If there was information other than jury duty or road building, I will elaborate." Jo Carolyn Beebe. [Records transcribed from AGLL Microfilm]

[Page 6]

"The establishment of a town by name Monticello took place about the time of the re-organization and the commissioners of the new town were duly empowered to sell lots in the proposed town, and with the proceeds establish a fund to be used in the purchase of land and erection of public buildings. This was proposed to be the new county seat. The members of this commission were James BARTLETT, William H. VANCE, John BOHANNON, Edward ANDERSON and James JACKSON. After a long delay the commission finally in 1844, decided upon a location about a mile east of the present town of Cookeville - - The Buck College site - - but this place and their plans were never to mature."
