Furlough: The Civil War Diaries of Sarah Belle Bright and Charles Alexander Elder of Trenton, Tennessee 1861-1867, Andrew Hays


6 Furlough: The Civil War Diaries of Sarah Belle Bright and Charles Alexander Elder of Trenton, Tennessee 1861-1867
Andrew Hays
2008, 5½x8½, paper, 74 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Charles Elder of Gibson County, Tennessee, was a twenty-three year old law student in the spring of 1861, when he decided he must do the right thing. He answered the South's call to duty and mustered with F Company of the 4th Tennessee Infantry, the West Tennessee Rifles. As daunting as the prospects of marching off to that terrible war must have seemed, there was one thing weighing even heavier on Charley's heart...he was madly in love with Belle Bright. Belle Bright was just eighteen that spring, and her heart was sinking at the thought of her boyish and charming suitor being lost in a war which knew no favorites, and was bound to be relentless and cruel. Should she marry Charley against her parents' wishes? Should she wait for Charley to return from war? Would he return? Andrew Hays has compiled the collective diaries of his great-great-grandparents along with historical references, photos and documents in one book. Furlough is the transcription of the personal journals Belle and Charley; each kept through their long separations, longings for furloughs, and blessed reunions throughout the American Civil War. Their letters were joyous and tragic and written with what seemed to be the souls of poets. As one reads their words, one can't help but be amazed by how descriptive, articulate and just plain beautiful such young people's words could be.

Past Times: Obituaries, Marriages and Other Selected Articles from the Maryville Times, Maryville, Tennessee, 1884-1890, Caleb G. Teffeteller


7 Past Times: Obituaries, Marriages and Other Selected Articles from the Maryville Times, Maryville, Tennessee, 1884-1890
Caleb G. Teffeteller
2008, 5½x8½, paper, index, 192 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
The Maryville Times newspaper covered the Maryville, Blount County area located in East Tennessee, within sight of the Great Smoky Mountains. Past Times contains numerous obituary and marriage notices as well as other articles of interest such as weather events, social gatherings, family reunions and community happenings transcribed from the Maryville Times for the years 1884 through 1890. Over 2,000 people are mentioned in these pages. The information on people who lived in Blount County prior to and during 1890 is of particular importance because the 1890 census was lost in a fire in Washington, D.C. As an added bonus for researchers, most of the surnmaes are in bold print to make it easier to find people at a glance. A full name index adds to the value of this work.

9 Williamson County, Tennessee County Court Minutes, July 1812-October 1815
Carol Wells
(1994), 2008, 5½x8½, paper, index, 170 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Although Williamson County, Tennessee, was formed from part of Davidson County in 1799, the first surviving census is the 1820 enumeration. Other records must be used to throw light on families of those early years. Minute Book Two of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions-the County Court-contains matters which passed before the justices of the peace from July 1812 to the end of 1815. In these pages can be found: names of new settlers, landowners whose claims conflicted, or the wording of whose grants needed to be corrected, whose taxes were unpaid, or who were selling land in other counties or states. As new farms were created, old roads had to be changed and new roads laid off; men doing these tasks would probably be local residents, thus providing clues to the names of neighbors and possible relatives. Minutes also provide names and relationships in the proving of wills, providing for widows and children, guardians, dowers, apprentices, indigents, and illegitimate children. An every name index adds to the value of this work.

Williamson County, Tennessee, County Court Minutes, May 1806 - April 1812, Carol Wells


10 Williamson County, Tennessee, County Court Minutes, May 1806 - April 1812
Carol Wells
(1994), 2008, 5½x8½, paper, index, 234 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
No census exists for the years covered in this book-a time when settlers were flooding into Tennessee in record numbers as a result of the subjugation of the hitherto troublesome Indians. Some settlers stayed on permanently, while others just stopped over for a brief spell on their way further west. In the absence of a census, county court records are a genealogist's richest source of names and other family data. These court minutes give a picture of life on the expanding frontier and also demonstrate how events were handled: not just disputes and lawsuits, but also the building of roads and bridges, the handling of troubles like insanity, illegitimacy, death, guardianships, apprenticeships, and the remarriage of widows. Growing urbanization is shown in the purchases of town lots, repairs to courthouse and jail, and the licensing of ordinaries, ferries, and mill sites. Sheriffs' reports deal with lawbreakers, delinquent taxes, and public sales. Deeds, depositions, and powers of attorney may refer to places of previous residence. The information was transcribed from microfilm. It is chronologically arranged and includes an every name index.

Folk Songs of Middle Tennessee: The George Boswell Collection, Charles K. Wolfe, ed.


11 Folk Songs of Middle Tennessee: The George Boswell Collection
Charles K. Wolfe, ed.
1997 208 pp, paperback / softcover, University of Tennessee Press
This volume brings together, for the first time, more than one hundred traditional songs from Middle Tennessee-a region that is synonomous in the popular mind with music but one that has been curiously neglected in folksong scholarship. The songs presented here were originally collected in the late 1940s and early 1950s by George Boswell, a distinguished scholar and field researcher who died in 1995.
While living in Nashville, Boswell scoured the city and surrounding counties for old ballads and folk songs. Sometimes using a wire or tape recorder, at other times employing a stenographer, he visited numerous singers and transcribed the words and tunes to hundreds of songs. Even after moving from Tennessee to assume a teaching position at the University of Mississippi, Boswell continued to work on his collection, annotating and comparing texts, and publishing occasional samples. In 1950, he noted that Tennessee, virtually alone among southern states, had no published collection of its folk songs. That has remained the case until now.
The songs chosen for this book are presented with musical notation and extensive backgound notes, including biographical data on the original informants (many of whom were business and professional people) and fascinating histories of each song. A number of the songs are rare and previously uncollected; others are local variants of long-popular ballads. The publication of this volume-the first major collection of southern folk songs in many years-is not only a testament to Boswell's scholarship but a marvelous contribution to our understanding of southern folk cultures and the ways in which it has interacted with popular culture.

About Author
Charles K. Wolfe, professor of English at Middle Tennessee State University, has published widely on folklore and country music and is currently the editor of the Tennessee Folklore Society Bulletin. His books include Tennessee Strings and The Life and Legend of Leadbelly (with Kip Lornell).

Reviews
"Folk Songs from Middle Tennessee . . . is superior to most collections because Boswell cast a wide net in his collecting, recording many items from people not usually thought of as folksingers, and because, unlike most collectors of his day, he was equally skilled at music and lyric transcription." —W. K. McNeil, The Ozark Folk Center

“In demolishing several stereotypes, Hsiung gets tantalizingly close to revealing the sources of regional and national identity."—The Journal of American History
“As contributions to a history of upper East Tennessee, this work advances our understanding."—Agricultural History

“Readers with an interest in Appalachia will find this book useful, as will others interested in regional identity and perception."—Journal of the Early Republic
“Hsiung is diligent in his inquiry."—Agricultural History
“Enters an old fray with a sophisticated approach that rightfully moves the debate chronologically from the post-Civil War to the antebellum period."—The Journal of East Tennessee History

The first third of the book presents an interesting and thorough background (fully annotated), and a brief history of the regiment, and then details of the regiment's organization. The bulk of the book is an appendix which summarizes the service records of 1,401 men who served with the 2nd Tennessee.

Forgotten Soldiers: History of the 4th Regiment Tennessee Volunteer Infantry (USA), 1863-1865, Eddie M. Nikazy

Eddie M. Nikazy
(1995), 2006, 5½x8½, paper, index, 172 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Many people may be unaware of any support for the Union in Tennessee during the 1860's and may be surprised to learn of the important role played by soldiers from East Tennessee. Based almost entirely on primary sources, this history relates the events in the record of the 4th Regiment. By examining the service records of 1,040 soldiers, Nikazy is able to give particular attention to personal detail and chronicle the lives of men from Greene, Grainger, Carter, Johnson, Cocke, and Washington counties. There is biographical data on both the officers and soldiers that include enrollment, rank, promotions, age, wounds, discharge and other pertinent information.
