Meigs County Court House 1904

“Be It Remembered that on in Pursuance of the Statutes of the State of Tennessee in such case made and provided, a county court began to be Organized Opened and held of the county of Meigs at the home of John Stewart on the first Monday and second day of May in the Year of our Lord One thousand eight hundred and thirty six.”

Can you imagine the feelings of those men, after wrangling with the state, as they recorded these words declaring their new county?
