Found in middle Tennessee, Lincoln County was created on November 14, 1809. These Court of Pleas and Quarter Session are the minutes of the county court in session to govern the county and the activities that are found working in a county. They recorded the hundreds of little items that make a county work, like road orders, deed registering, divorces and the like. Since the county was created in late 1809, this 1810 is probably the first records of the area and tell more of the history of the beginning of the county than any other source.

Example from this volume:
