Bishop Asbury Comes to Holston
Taken from the diary of Bishop Francis Asbury with the help of Marvin Kincheloe and Robert L. Hilten, this volume shows clearly, through a series of maps, the route taken on the various journeys of Asbury. As Bishop Asbury traveled around the area of Holston Conference [covering southwestern Virginia and east Tennessee], checking on churches, pastors and the general state of the fledgling Methodist Church, he kept a diary. From these words we get a real feeling for the life and times of the late 18th and early 19th century in western America. Much of this kind of information is only available from diaries of this sort.

TVA Grave Removal Records

The Tenneseee Valley Authority [ TVA ] Act was passed in 1933 to improve navigability, control flooding of the Tennessee River, and provide for the Valley's agricultural and industrial development. Before the dam was flooded, graves had to be relocated to higher ground.

An exhaustive effort was made to identify each grave-site and obtain removal agreements from surviving relatives and cemetery trustees. Then, graves and monuments were moved to re-interment cemeteries. In the process, valuable vital record information was gathered.

As the time grows between the present and the time of World War II, fewer living members of that conflict survive. These listings are very important to the researchers of both history and genealogy.
