Green Marble Bar

"I, John Smith, knowing that there comes a time when all men must die, do hereby declare this my last will and testament revoking all other wills. First, I ..."
The following list is a transcription of the will index for Will Book A (November 1870 - January 1917) found on Roll #56 of the Loudon County Microfilm available from the Tennessee State Library and Archives.

From each will the following information was extracted: Name of deceased, the date the will was written, the date the will was probated, the name of the spouse (if given), the name of the children (if explicitly stated as "my son/daughter/child"), and other information such as other relationships explicitly mentioned. In most cases, each will has a separate inventory and settlement. You will need to check the Inventory and Settlements Page as well.

If you find a will listed that you are interested in obtaining a copy of, you can request a copy from the Tennessee State Library and Archives. If you have a copy of any of these wills, I encourage you to transcribe and let me put it online to share with other researchers.
