Genealogy and History


Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy



This county is available for adoption.

We're looking for folks who share our desire to put data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as we can make it. If you are interested joining our group as County Host for this website, or any of our websites, view our Volunteer Information page. A desire to transcribe data and know-how to make a webpage is required.

In the meantime, we'd be very happy to accept any data you'd care to contribute and would like to see displayed on this site. We're looking for birth/death/marriage records, obituaries, cemetery headstone readings, biographies, county histories, census data, pensions and other military data.

Email your transcribed data to me Christine Walters and I'll take care of putting it online.

WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU.
I don't live in the area and I don't have the resources to do research


Obion County was founded in 1823. It was named in honor of the Obion River, the chief watercourse in the county. Some say the name Obion is an Indian word meaning "many prongs", while others say it was the name of a French-Irish officer who explored the county at an early but unknown time.
