Cannon County was carved-out of Coffee, Rutherford, Warren, and Wilson counties in 1836. This book is an abstract of the deeds for this middle Tennessee County. Deeds are one of the favorite research tools of the genealogists due to the wide variety of family connections found within them. Not only will the reader find the deed transaction itself, but often things such as: marriages, relinquishments of dower, divisions of family farms among the heirs, remarriages of widows are just a few of the matters you can anticipate finding within records of deeds.
