History of Dickson County, Tennessee
By: Robert Ewing Corlew, Pub. 1956, Reprinted 2019, 244 pages, Index, soft cover, ISBN #0-89308-028-4.
Dickson County was created in 1803 from Montgomery and Robertson counties. This land was first settled in 1793 when the State of North Carolina started issuing grants to persons with Revolutionary service. This book is not too different from other county history books of this era. With such topics as trade and transportation, labor, farming, politics, and race relations - all important in the development of the county - are discussed. This type of county history book can help one develop ideas or paths to those missing ancestors by showing the customs and traditions of the local residents.
