West Tennessee's Forgotten Children: Apprentices from 1821 to 1889
"West Tennessee's Forgotten Children: Apprentices, 1821-1889 marks the third and concluding volume in Dr. Alan N. Miller?s series of extractions of Tennessee apprenticeship records. Just as he did for the 29 counties of East Tennessee and 35 counties of Middle Tennessee, Dr. Miller has sifted through the apprenticeship records of West Tennessee and brought them within the reach of the genealogy researcher. This third volume of Tennessee's "forgotten children" contains some over 4,000 apprenticeship records scattered among the minutes of the county courts for West Tennessee. These records span the period from 1821-1889 and list in tabular form the apprenticeships created in the following 19 Tennessee counties: Benton, Carroll, Crockett, Decatur, Dyer, Fayette, Gibson, Hardeman, Hardin, Haywood, Henry, Lake, Lauderdale, Madison, McNairy, Obion, Shelby, Tipton, and Weakley."--Publisher website (December 2008).
