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.



Unicoi County was founded in 1875. It was named in honor of the Indian tribal name, Unaka, which means "white" the name given to the mountain range in the county.

This county lies almost wholly in the Unaka Mountain belt,on the North Carolina bonier. Comparatively little of it is adapted for cultivation, though hid away among the giant Unakas are many beautiful covet end small valleys of great fertility. The county seat is Erwin, which has a population of 150. The county is watered by the Nola Chucky and its tributaries. The scenery in Unicoi is magnificent. There are many picturesque waterfalls and cascades, which will, when the population requires, drive some useful machinery. Among the mountains are stores of valuable minerals which await the requirements of commerce to call them from their hiding places and convert them into useful commodities. Timber is abundant and the coves and mountain sides furnish rich pasturage for numerous flocks and herds.
