These records are taken from three papers, all published in Knoxville, covering the period from 1809 through 1834. The three papers are: Wilson’s Knoxville Gazette, Knoxville Register, and Enquirer. Gleaning from the pages of these papers are articles pertaining to Rhea County during this very early time period. Much of this information did not get into the counties’ history which was written in 1990 due to the fact they were not located at the time. Some of the articles are copied directly from the paper and some are type-copied. They are arranged by chronological dates and not subject matter.

Example from this volume:

“Direct Tax for 1816. Notice is hereby given, that the direct tax of the United States for 1816, on the following described property, situate in this state having remained unpaid one year from the time of the notification of the collector in whose district the said property lies, that the tax had become due and payable, the same or so much thereof as may be necessary to satisfy the said tax due thereon, with an addition of twenty per cent will be sold at public sale at the Franklin hotel, in the town of Franklin, in the county of Williamson on the 24th day of August 1818 - Sale to commence at ten o’clock, A.M. and continue for day to day until all are sold.
