Compiled by WPA Workers **, this hefty publication contains the full-text minutes of the Blount Count, Tennessee Court Records from 1795 through 1804. This volume is packed with civil/criminal court cases, orphan records, child support matters, fines, deeds/estates, land permits, overseers, land use permits, names of county officials, arbitrations, court payments, and promissory notes. Included are a vast variety of civilian names, including court officials, defendants, and names of jurors.

** WPA Workers
During the Great Depression in the early 1900s, many Americans were given a "job" by the United States Government to support their family. One such "job" was transcribing early court, family, Bible, and cemetery records as well as other local records. Original versions were typed on onion skin paper with "x" number of carbon copies. Although the State Archives owns the vast majority of 'first' or typed copy, carbons have circulated for years but are now scattered. Often the typing is not the best and is difficult to read but these valuable records still constitute one of the best sources of information for Tennessee Counties. In many cases, these are all that remain of the original as many county records have been lost. WPA records are generally full text transcription: much larger in scope than an abstraction or summary.
