      Cocke County, Tennessee
      Early Settlers of the Old 12th District

      ------------------------------------------------------------------------





      The following is a list of early settlers who lived ?on the waters
      of? Cosby and Groundhog Creeks, creeks that are mostly in what was
      the old 12th district of Cocke County. This list comes from land
      entries on Tennessee State Library and Archives (TSLA) microfilm
      #36. The label on the copy of the film I have says the land entries
      are on the second item on the film; they are on the third item. It
      also gives dates of April 1874 to June 1898. These may be the years
      that the original book was copied or families brought the originals
      to be re-recorded. The actual dates of the land entries are 1824 to
      about 1831, making them some of the earliest surviving records of
      Cocke County.

      The original land entries were surveys and included drawings as well
      as descriptions. The drawings were not copied into the new book. The
      verbal descriptions often included reference to neighbors. And there
      were always two names at the left bottom of the description. I
      believe these were witnesses or attestors. I think they were also
      neighbors.

      I have abstracted the page numbers, landowners? names, dates they
      made the entries, any reference to neighbors, and the attestors
      names. Most of the landowners lived ?on the waters? of Cosby Creek;
      I specifically mention those that lived on Groundhog Creek.
