1 Davidson County, Tennessee, Deed Book H: 1809-1821
Mary Sue Smith
2000, 5x8, paper, index, 163 pp, Heritage Books
The third volume of Tennessee deed book records abstracted and indexed by Mary Sue Smith. There are no Federal censuses in existence for Tennessee prior to 1820, with the exception of 1810 for Rutherford County. These Tennessee deed records are remarkably informative, often including full names, family relations, and more complete information on slave transactions, such as the full names and even maiden names of buyers, sellers, former owners and inheritors. In many cases, family migrations are noted providing additional geographic clues for directing further research. Ms. Smith has preserved the "feel" of the deeds by retaining the spelling and language peculiarities of the original documents, particularly in those entries that contain estate inventories. Entries are dated and arranged in the order that they were recorded in the deed book, with a citation to the original page where they can be found. Freemen are denoted in the index by an asterisk.
Price: 18.50 USD



2 Davidson County, Tennessee, Deed Book Z: Personal Property Deeds, September 5, 1835 - January 2, 1838
Mary Sue Smith
2004, 5x8, paper, index, 296 pp, Heritage Books
This abstract continues the personal property deed book abstracts for Davidson County, Tennessee in the 1830s and is especially important in tracing African American ancestry in early middle Tennessee. It gives ownership of slaves and relationships in both white and black families. These personal property deeds of the 1830s may provide the link between the family in Mississippi, Texas, California or Illinois with the older generation in Virginia or North Carolina. They are one of the few types of records that name the women and children as well as give the names and ages of the slave families. They may contain the only official entry to make the conclusive link in a period when many of the wills only say "my beloved wife and all my children," and when the will provides no information on the black family. The entries are in chronological order and are fully indexed.
