Research Guides[edit | edit source]

Cemeteries[edit | edit source]

  • Robert McGinnis has published 3 of 4 planned volumes of cemetery transcriptions for Grainger County.  He did extensive research and included such things as wills and obituaries in the books.  In addition, he perused Grainger County death certificates on microfilm to identify unmarked burials.  Copies of each volume are available from Mr. McGinnis.
  • Charles A. Reeves Jr. has created a detailed map showing the locations of Grainger County cemeteries. It may be purchased for a small fee through his website.
  • Find A Grave can be searched by the name of a person or family to find where a person is buried. Usually gives birth and death dates often with a picture of the tombstone. May give obituaries, names of family members and links to their information in Find A Grave.

Census[edit | edit source]

1830, 1840, 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920, and 1930 federal population censuses of Grainger County are available online. For tips on accessing census records online, see Tennessee Census. If you're having trouble finding your ancestors in online indexes, try checking printed indexes. Created by local experts familiar with the area's families, these indexes are often transcribed more accurately than nationwide online indexes.

Family Histories[edit | edit source]

It is anticipated that this bibliography will eventually identify all known family histories published about residents of this county. Use this list to:

  • Locate publications about direct ancestors
  • Find the most updated accounts of an ancestor's family
  • Identify publications, to quote Elizabeth Shown Mills, about an ancestor's "FAN Club" [Friends, Associates, and Neighbors]

  • Wilson, Marshall A. Families of Norris Reservoir Area. Clinton, Tennessee: Pellissippi Genealogical and Historical Society, 1986. FHL US/CAN Book 976.8935 D2w.
Norris Dam on the Clinch River in Eastern Tennessee was a project of the Tennessee Valley Authority in the 1930s. Nearly 3,000 families, totalling almost 14,000 persons, were required to vacate land that was to be inundated by the resulting reservoir. In connection with the removal of families and gravesites, Mr. Wilson, a TVA official, collected historical and genealogical information about Norris Valley residents; he presents information about 75 of those families, along with a brief chronology of the area. Each family record begins with the name of a father and the name of that man's father, con- tinuing through other ancestors of the direct male line back to the earliest one known. Families represented by ten or more male heads of household include Agee, Carden, Hatmaker, Irwin, Longmire, Miller, Rice, and Sharp.

Vital Records[edit | edit source]

Marriage

The original Grainger County marriage records are kept at the County Archive. According to Edythe Rucker Whitley, writing in 1982, "In the time that has elapsed since the register was first compiled [by WPA] many original [loose] bonds and licenses have been lost. The WPA register is therefore the most complete record of Grainger County marriages we are ever likely to have." The surviving original records have been microfimed by two organizations:

  1. Marriage Records 1858-1938, 1940-1955. Microfilmed in 1970s and 1980s by Tennessee State Library and Archives; FHL copies: FHL US/CAN Films 968583-968586, 1928682-1928684.
  2. Marriage Bonds 1810-1889. Microfilmed in 2003 by the Genealogical Society of Utah: FHL US/CAN Films 2369499-2369500.
  3. Marriage Licenses ca. 1837-1950. Microfilmed in 2003 by the Genealogical Society of Utah: FHL US/CAN Films 2369382 ff.
  4. Marriage Bonds and Licenses (Loose Records) and Index 1796-1950. Microfilmed in 2006 by the Genealogical Society of Utah: FHL US/CAN Films 1465135 ff.

These records have been abstracted several times. Each editor was selective in the amount of detail he or she published. Whitley states her publication, based on the WPA register (1930s), contains more records than are currently found in the County Archive. She was unfamiliar with the work of Billie Wyrick Kennerly C.G., whose two volumes published in 1964 should not be overlooked. The following is a list of these publications:
