Montgomery County was created in 1796 from Tennessee County which was created from the state of North Carolina shortly after the Revolutionary War. This is another of the MUCH-NEEDED books on Middle Tennessee to fill in the gaps for families migrating into and through this area on their way westward. Montgomery County was involved in the Walker Line dispute with the state of Kentucky which later they lost, and portions of the county were granted to Kentucky. In these minutes of pleas & quarters sessions you will find appointments of county officials, appointed administrators, marked public roads, granting of licenses to “ordinaries”, taxes being levied, civil actions of a wide variety and persons being tried for offenses against the peace & dignity of the State.
