| Return to Rhea County, TN Books | Return to Homepage |
Rhea County today is all on the north side of the Tennessee River, but at the time that the Hiwassee Land District was established, Rhea County was also on the south side of the River. This land became Meigs County in 1836. In the clerk’s listing of the tracts of land, there are mistakes since they were not able to determine the north/south or the east/west sections of the grid upon which the District was based. Maps are included to demonstrate some of these errors and especially denoting the boundary of the county of Rhea from McMinn.
“For his property to have been in adjoining townships (as shown in the 1830 map), it would have to have the same township designation. Township 2S would place the property in Goodfield. Based on Robert’s property (as well as others in T2S), it was evident that the recorder had misnumbered T1S as T2S, T2S as T3S, and T3S as T4S (T4S would have been south of the Hiwassee River).”
