Jefferson County is one of the older counties in Tennessee being established on June 11, 1792 by William Blount when governor of the Territory south of the River Ohio. It was formed from parts of Greene and Hawkins Counties. This first book of guardians reflects the method of handling orphaned children in this day and time. The records had to go before the courts for approval and the guardians were appointed by the County Court in regular sessions.

Example from this volume:

16th April 1805 - received of Thomas Grier, Esqr., two hundred dollars which is part of the money in the hands of the Guardian for Lavina Tipton heir of Jacob Tipton. Deceased. Received by Benjamine Bradford, G. D. for said Lavina Tipton.
