Marshall County, located in lower middle Tennessee, was created in 1836 from several other counties in the area and named for John Marshall, Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. This early Will Book, beginning in 1835, records the various will of persons living in the area at the time and tells a great deal about life in those days prior to the Civil War. Many of these wills name the various children and bequest.
