Beginning with a list of attorneys who practiced law from 1821 to 1825, this hefty volume is a virtual 'who-did-what' in pioneer Madison County. Included are court payments, construction permits, civil suits, business license applications, criminal cases, wills, estates, inventories, livestock brands, and names of jurors.

Since this book contains the complete transcript of daily court activities, the historian or researcher obtains a clear picture of day-to-day activities in pioneer Madison County, Tennessee

** 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.
