INDEX TO TOPICS FOUND IN SELECTED
MADISON COUNTY, TENNESSEE BOOKS
BY JONATHAN K. T. SMITH

 

Compiled by Marlene Simpson
Spring 2001

[Note: this is an index to holdings in the Tennessee Room, Jackson-Madison County Public Library. Only some of these works are online.]

This index was compiled to provide a finding tool for the multiple topics contained in many of Jonathan Smith's books. Though many of his books contain only what the title implies (e.g. his deed books), many have a variety of topics under one title. Because of this, they are often overlooked. Locating these topics without such a finding tool was difficult. The books indexed were chosen because of their relevance to Madison County, Tennessee, but do not represent all of Mr. Smith's works. Topics are listed alphabetically, each followed by an abbreviation for the book in which it is located. Hopefully, this index will serve as a useful guide to researchers interested in Madison County.
