Bledsoe County just in Middle Tennessee in Sequatchie Valley was originally a county that ran from the Alabama State Line to Morgan County on the Cumberland Plateau. At this time the counties of Marion, Sequatchie, Cumberland and smaller portion of several other counties were within its borders. However, at the time of these surveys the area of Bledsoe included primarily Sequatchie, Cumberland and present Bledsoe Counties.

The survey books are found in two different forms in two different locations. The original surveyor’s book is at the Tennessee State Archives, but a transcribed copy for Survey Books A-D is found in the court house in Pikeville. In our transcription, we used the microfilm version of Book A and then double checked against the copy in the Court House to make corrections. The original was extremely difficult to read, especially with the spelling. The Obed River was spelled in a number of different versions in the original. When the court version was transcribed in about 1878 many of the names had been standardized and were much easier to read so this was what we used for Book B. In either of these versions, there is a plat of each property but only survey notes are included on these. The map of the county at the time was taken from Matthew Rhea’s 1833 map of Tennessee and redrawn for this publication.
