Book review

Hawkins County was created in 1786 from Sullivan County, TN., which in turn was carved out of Washington County, TN which was in turn carved out of Wilkes and Burke counties, N.C. This area of Eastern Tennessee received a large influx of persons migrating West in search of new lands. Most of these early settlers were from North Carolina and Virginia, with a sprinkling from Pennsylvania. Hawkins county sits on the border with Virginia. More appropriately, directly under Washington County, Virginia which was considered the gate way to west through western Virginia.
Circuit court records are another unique source for tracing those elusive family members. The type of records found within this book are: petitions for divorce, breach of peace, assault & battery, guardianship, horse stealing, indictments for murders, indictments for larceny, bigamy charges, oaths relating to service in Revolutionary War, deeds of gifts, possession of counterfeit money, and many, many other juicy tidbits of information concerning persons of Eastern TN. that are not found anywhere else.
