Sequatchie County, located in the middle of Sequatchie Valley on the western edge of eastern Tennessee and the eastern edge of middle Tennessee, has an older population. Settlers in the first migration westward in Tennessee came across the Cumberland Plateau through Grassy Cove as they traveled from Kingston in Roane County going into Middle Tennessee. They would drop off the mountain into the Sequatchie Valley early after Tennessee became a state.

These records are of the Dunlap Baptist Church minutes from 1868 to 1899. In the Methodist records from 1903 until 1911, we have the Methodist Episcopal, South Quarterly Conference Records for the time period for the Dunlap Circuit which included Dunlap, Chapel Hill, Davis Chapel and New Life churches. Lots of names are given in these records for this section of the valley.
