Because all early probate records of Henderson County were destroyed by fire, the 1836 tax list is helpful in identifying estates which would otherwise be unknown. This information, taken from the original tax list in the Tennessee State Library and Archives in Nashville, carried the name of the estate/heirs involved, the number of acres/slaves in and for same and values of same.
