For years, this site’s Webmistress has wished for a map of the Hawkins County Civil Districts in 1836, overlaid on a current map, for her own research.
She is immeasurably grateful for the incalculable efforts of Jim Jackson for his having created just such a map.
Jim not only created the map, he created a single, combined list of names from the 1830 Census, 1840 Census, and 1836 Tax List for Hawkins County.
This is an important resource for neighboring Claiborne, Hancock, and Grainger County researchers.

Thank you, Jim!

In 1972, the East Tennessee Historical Society published a history of Knox County, entitled French Broad-Holston Country. The map below is from that volume.
