Tennessee cemetery records often identify birth, death, relationship, and military information, as well as religious affiliation.

  • <a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gs&">Find A Grave</a> 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.

Family Histories

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 <a href="Elizabeth Shown Mills">Elizabeth Shown Mills</a>, about an ancestor's "FAN Club" [Friends, Associates, and Neighbors]


As of August 2010, a query for <a href="http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=Search&includedb=&lang=en&ti=&surname=&stype=Exact&given=&bplace=Union+Tennessee&byear=&brange=0&dplace=&dyear=&drange=0&mplace=&myear=&mrange=0&father=&mother=&spouse=&skipdb=&period=All&submit.x=Search">persons born in Union, Tennessee</a> at <a href="World Connect">World Connect</a>, results in more than 30,000 entries.

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.



The original Union County Deed Books are kept at the County Courthouse. In the 1970s, <a href="Tennessee State Library and Archives">TSLA</a> microfilmed Deed Books A to P (1856-1900) and an accompanying Index (1856-1907).
