The county court clerk’s office contains marriage records, guardian settlements, wills and inventories, and the minutes of the county court. The records date from 1800 down to the present. Fortunately, none of Wilson County’s records are missing. An effort has been made to abstract all of these records from 1800 through 1900. This book is the completion of that effort. This book does include the first of the deed books of Wilson County, Deed Books A & B.
Deeds are GREAT source for genealogical research due to the many and varied family members that are mentioned. Not only will the reader find the deed transaction itself, but often times such things as: marriages, relinquishment of dower, divisions of family farms among heirs, remarriages of widows are just a few of the matters you can anticipate finding within records of deeds.
