Lincoln County is located in middle Tennessee on land that was ceded to the United States in 1806 by the Cherokee and Chickasaws. There were land speculators and surveyors in the area as early as 1784 when the Federal government was giving Military Service Warrants for the men in the American Revolution. It was created in 1809 and named for Benjamin Lincoln, a Revolutionary War Veteran, U. S. Secretary of War and a Lieutenant Governor of Massachuset . The Tombstone Records found in this piece were taken from the W.P.A. records of the late 1930s with a few of the cemeteries typed by them, but a large number of the rest of them were typed by Mountain Press from the original files of the county they purchased in the late 1980s from the estate of the State Supervisor. These records were not returned to the State Archives.
