    Monroe County, TN



Monroe County Circuit Court Records:

Monroe County was formed in 1819 and the Circuit court records housed in the Archives begin in 1820 through 1968. Circuit Courts are courts of law. They decide whether the parties involved in a case are guilty or innocent. In civil cases the Court can award monetary damages. They handle cases such as divorce, theft, murder, assault, gambling, and bastardy. After 1847 some Circuit Courts divided into: Criminal Courts for State cases, and Civil Courts for cases between individuals.

Monroe County Court Records:

During the Civil War, Union Troops pillaged the Courthouse and destroyed all County Court records prior to 1858. County Court Records housed in the Archive are from 1858 to 1978. County Court handled business matters only, no disputes. They dealt with probate - wills, inventory of estates, administrator and executor’s bond. Records also include adoptions, juvenile matters, apprentice bonds, tax adjustments, providing for paupers and “idiots,” and road crew appointments. It is Tennessee law that adoptions, juvenile records, paupers, or insanity records cannot be viewed or released without a Court Order.
