Hi Leamon, You have to go to Nashville New Public building next door to the old courthouse. The tax office employees are not very helpful and none that I found are from the area. One lady pointed to the book in which I found valuable info. If you go there walk through the outer reception office and into the main record room...lots of researchers walking around...walk to the right and look down under a counter top work space by the windows. You will see a bright blue 3" ring binder. Each page is in a plastic sleeve and that is where I found the info. If you look at the list of petition signers you will get a surprise..your ancestors are there...maybe you already have the petition. I did not and it thrilled me to find it. Some lady told me where to look for the book but no one knew if it had been published or if I could get a copy. I made copies of "The Green Path" and "Dawn's Early Light" same author did all work Mr. Joseph W. Watson. Please share if you find out more about this lovely story. Book should be published!!! My husband and a school friend did the history of his hometown in MO. and it is a HOT item with genealogists and descendents. Good luck.
