This is a transcription of the first census done for Clay County after it formation in 1870. The County was formed from the northern portions of Overton and Jackson County, TN and therefore is comprised of some of the oldest families in Tennessee.

A tremendous work that deserves and has a full name index. This is a great book and a must have for anyone doing research in the Middle Tennessee Area. Price is $7.00
