History of Fentress County, Tennessee
by Albert R. Hogue




Overview -
Fentress County, which was formed from Morgan and Overton Counties in 1823, is located in the northern part of Tennessee, east of the center of the State, and lies principally on the Cumberland Plateau. It originally bordered on Kentucky, but Pickett County was formed partly from its northern territory in 1881. Like so many histories written during this period, the first-half of the book describes the topography; industries; famous residents, including Mark Twains description of Jamestown and the surroundings, the county's participation in the Civil War, as well as rosters and information on individuals and participating units; County contributions to other conflicts and campaigns; and additional historical events of interest. The second-half of the work, or Part Two, is dedicated to approximately 350 personal and family sketches, many including information on occupation, marriages, children, and personal accomplishments.
