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 basic 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 "raw data" - the birth/death/marriage records, obituaries, cemetery headstone readings, biographies, county histories, census data, pensions and other military data. In short, we'd like to display all the items you used to put together your family tree (rather than the tree itself).

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.
All data we come across will be added to this website, so please keep checking back.



Sequatchie County was founded in 1857. It was named in honor of the valley in which the county lies. It's reportedly named after the Cherokee chief that journeyed to Charleston, S. C. in the early 18th century to sign a treaty with the Colonial Government.

Sequatchee county lies upon the Cumberland Plateau , with the Sequatchee Valley passing through its center. Dunlap is the county scat and has 133 inhabitants. Other towns are. Mount Airy and Fillmore. The valley lands are exceedinglyfertile, growing the staple productions in abundance. Timber is abundant. Iron and coal are found in large quantities, but for want of transportation are not yet available. The county is watered by Sequatchee River and its tributaries. A railroad, in course of construction, will open up this section, when its minerals will become valuable.
