Sumner County, located in the upper portion of middle Tennessee is one of the older areas for that section of the state. These records and some minutes begin in 1793 which is prior to statehood and give a unique picture of the state from the early days. Included in some of these notes are mentions of a number of Revolutionary War veterans as this section of Tennessee was where their land grant settlements from North Carolina were given.
