Research In Franklin Co., Tennessee

Researching in Franklin County, Tennessee, on 28 February 2008:

The Franklin County, TN, Historical Society's library is in the basement of the county library

There are vertical files for various families, including the Domingus File. There are cards, cross-indexed, and that's how I found the "Pattie" information in the Domingus file. [Thornton Pattie married an Acklin, and Acklin is a name I research]

Pedigree from Mrs. Naomi Patti Domingus of Silver Spring, MD, submitted in 1980

Naomi, b. 13 Dec 1913 Cowan, Franklin Co., TN
m. 1934
Howard Domingus
John William Pattie, b. 22 Nov 1848, Grundy or Franklin Co., TN; d. 25 June 1920 Sewanee, TN m. ca 1910
Eva Farris, b. 20 Apr 1894, Franklin Co., TN; d. 5 May 1963, Silver Spring, MD
Father: Dock Baltimore Farris, b. TN; d. Columbus, OH -- death certificate can be found online
Mother: Anna Bowman, d. Columbus, OH [her death certificate can also be found online]

[Note: A quick registration may be needed to access this database where the death records are online [the actual records!] which is still being developed and in "beta" testing. Many people are volunteering to transcribe records in order to put them online at that site which is affiliated with this site. ]
Thornton Stingfellow Pattie, b. Farquier, VA; d. Franklin Co., TN
Mildred Acklin

William Pattie, Jr., 1789, Farquier, VA

A brief look at one of the newspapers on microfilm found this item regarding the PATTIE family from July 21, 1859:

Another resource were the Indexes (3 of them) to Loose Court Papers, by the county's Preservation Project. Here is a page from one of the indexes:

Other names were extracted by me while at the library (not all names of interest were extracted for every volume/time period):
