Located in middle Tennessee, Smith County was created in 1799 from a part of Sumner County. It was named in honor of General Daniel Smith, a pioneer, surveyor, and Secretary of the Southwest Territory, and United States Senator, succeeding Andrew Jackson. These minute books, like all of them, are the recordings of the proceedings of the County Court to run the County on a day by day basis. Many names and situations are given in these minutes of great interest to the genealogist.

Example from this volume:

“June Term 1802 - Ordered the James Wray be allowed to keep a ferry at the mouth of Wartrace Creek on Cumberland River and that he be allowed the sum of 12 ˝ cents for each man & horse, 6 1/4 cents for a single man or single horse, 12 ˝ cents for a pack horse, & for each head of horned cattle 6 1/4 cents, for all other live stock 2 cents, for each Waggon & team 1 dollar, for each cart & team 50 cents, for each four wheel carriage of pleasure for the conveyance of persons one dollar, for each two wheel carriage ditto 50 cents, who came into Court and gave Security according to Law.”
