BRIEF HISTORY of the AREA that became CHESTER COUNTY TN
The earliest known people in the area were the Mound Builders. There are Mounds along the Forked Deer River from the Talley Store Area North to just South of the Harts Bridge Road in Madison County. The main Mounds are near Pinson in the State Park. All the Mounds that I know of are on higher ground on the East side of the River.

The treaty which opened West Tennessee for settlement was signed on October 19 1818 by Isaac Shelby, Andrew Jackson and the leaders of the Chickasaw Indians. The Chickasaw Indians were allowed exclusive use of the territory for hunting for two more years. Once settlers were allowed in the territory, progress was swift, as area courts were organized in the Fall of 1823 and the first census was held in 1830.  The first settlers came from Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, North Alabama and Middle Tennessee. The first settlement in the area was Mifflin.   Colonel J. Purdy migrated from Pennsylvania; the town of Mifflin was named after a town in Pennsylvania.
      Legislative Act of March 1 1879 formed the county and after law suits were resolved Chester County TN came in to existence in 1882. The County was formed from Hardeman, Henderson, McNairy and Madison counties and named in honor of Robert I Chester (1793-1892).   The county seat is located at Henderson, previously called Dayton and then Henderson Station and finally just Henderson.     Chester County is located in West Tennessee, one of the state's three "grand divisions."


CHESTER COUNTY TENNESSEE FORMATION
Chester County was the last county formed in Tennessee

1871 Survey
    These 1871 Towns and communities are in Chester County TN in 2013.
Montezuma,   Mifflin,   Jacks Creek,   Enville,   Center Point,   Sweet Lips,   Oak Grove,   Deanburg,   Masseyville,   Woodville,   Carroll - This town / community is either renamed or it disappeared before 2000.   Henderson Station was in Madison County in 1865.
The town of Silerton is in Hardeman County, but many in this community live in Chester County.   Silerton is the smallest incorporated town in Hardeman County as per 2010 census with a population of 110.

Legislature enabling Act creating Chester County was passed on March 1, 1879.   This Act nullified the 1871 Act. (The 1871 Act named the new county WISDOM.) The 1879 Act set the boundaries of the new county, to be called Chester. Chester came from parts of Madison, Hardeman, Henderson and McNairy Counties. Due to Law suits the County did not come into existence until 1882.     To find the people in the 1880 census one must look in the counties that Chester was formed from.

Goodspeed's HISTORY of TENNESSEE
The Goodspeed Publishing Co., Nashville TN, 1886-1887 [CHESTER COUNTY TN]
The enabling act, creating Chester County TN, was passed March 1, 1879. Section 1 of the Act called for portions of Madison, Henderson, McNairy and Hardeman Counties to be cut off and to be erected into a new county to be known by the name of Chester. This name was given as a compliment to Col. R. I. Chester, of Jackson, who was at that time representative from Madison County. The same section further designated what portion of the respective counties should be attached to the new county.
Section 2 of the Act named J. F. Hewlett, Robert Long, B. H. Brown, J. H. Fry, B. J. Young, A. B. Patterson, J. W. Perkins, J. W. Mitchell, J. M. Simmons, John Parham, J. W. Sherrell, W. L. Stegall, William Rush, J. M. Reams, M. D. Pare, and Abel Stewart as commissioners to run the boundaries.
Section 4 called for an election in the several factions, which required a two-thirds vote of all the voters in the faction to vote "new county" those opposing were to vote "old county".
Section 8 required the new county to be divided into ten or twelve civil districts.
Section 9 appointed person to hold election of county officers,
Section 10 selected commissioners to select a site for a county seat. They were ordered to select a place not more than three and a half miles from the center of the country, and were to have regard to health and convenience.
Section 11 provided for the purchase and erection of public buildings;
Section) 12 required the voters of the several factions to vote at their old places until authorized by further instruction.
The commissioners met and organized by electing William Rush chairman and John Parham secretary. Long, Pare and Stewart had moved away and their places were filled by W. L. Cherry, J. M. May and J. W. May. The first meeting of the commissioners was at Montezuma on June 18, 1879. The result of the elections on the question of the new county, on September 6, 1879, resulted in a vote of 263 out of 316 for the new county in the Madison faction, 408 votes out of 506 in the Henderson faction, 392 votes out of 510 in the McNairy faction, and 80 votes out of 103 in the Hardeman faction.
The organization of the new county was delayed by an injunction suit filed by J. D. Brown, John Brown and Isaac Parrish of the Henderson faction. The suit was brought before Chancellor Nixon and the suit sustained. An appeal was taken to the supreme court and the case brought before that body at Jackson at the April term, 1882.   The judgment of the former court was reversed and the injunction dissolved. The election held on May 20, 1882, for choice of county officers resulted in the election of Robert Criner for sheriff by a majority of 173 votes; of Ed Estes for circuit court clerk by a majority of 285 votes; of John Parham for county court clerk by a majority of 34 votes; of W. S. Rhodes for trustee by a majority of 94 votes, and of C. M. Cason, register, by 38 votes. The permanent organization was effected June 3, 1882, at the Baptist Church. On motion by John Parham and by order of Judge T. C. Muse, who stated the customs of colonial times, the audience were led in prayer by Rev. J. H. Garrett, after which the congregation joined in singing, "O, for a Thousand Tongues, etc."

    Prior to the railroad coming Henderson did not exist. Montezuma did not want the rail road to come through their town, therefore the RR was located farther East. The Railroad built a station and called it Dayton. Later it became Henderson Station because so many people of the area were from Henderson County even though the station was in Madison County.   Prior to 1882 Mifflin, Jacks Creek and the community later known as Glendale were in Henderson County. Montezuma, Masseyville, Woodville and the community of Sweet Lips were all in McNairy County.   Henderson Station was in Madison County.

Subscription rates were $1.50 per year in zone 1 and $2.00 per year beyond zone 1 - published weekly.   The longest ownership has been by the Whaley family.

1877     Henderson Masonic Male and Female Institute
1885     West Tennessee Christian College West Tennessee Christian College is a continuation of a school begun in 1869 by Miss Helen Post and A. S. Sayle. The school thus started was afterward incorporated as the Masonic Male and Female Institute, which won an extensive reputation during its fifteen years existence. The name Masonic in connection with the institute was merely nominal. This school was under the management of Prof. Geo. Savage, now of Eagleville. On August 4, 1885, the school was incorporated as the West Tennessee Christian College by I. J. Galbralth, John Parham, L. G. Thomas, H. Robertson, J. W. Galbraith, W. L. Hill, E. B. Fuller, J. B. Inman, R. J. Parham, J. W. Ozier and J. A. McCulley. The officers of the executive board are I. J. Galbraith, president; J. H. Fuller, secretary, and J. W. Ozier, treasurer. The faculty consists of J. B. Inman, president; J. H. Fuller, A. M.; R. J. Haynes, A. M.; Miss Sue Inman, Miss Mattie Boothe and Miss Laura Ivey. The corporation owns good buildings and campus. A boarding hall for young ladies is under the care of the president of the college. The curriculum embraces the usual college course. The attendance at the college is about 100. The ability of the faculty, the cheapness of living, the healthful moral and physical atmosphere make the West Tennessee Christian College a desirable place at which to educate young ladies and young gentlemen.

After the GEORGIA - ROBERTSON CHRISTIAN COLLEGE ceased the building became the Chester County High School in 1913.   In 1915-16 it was the Grammer School, Junior High and High School combined.   In 1951 the county built a new high school.   After the new high school was occupied in 1951 the "old" school only contained the elementary school grades 1 - 8.   After the county built new elementary schools in the 1960's, Freed-Hardeman bought the building and acreage and renamed it, MILAN-SITKA Building. The building was deemed unsafe and the last classes were held in 2003 in the building. The building was torn down in 2004. The Bell in the Tower, Corner Stone and other items were saved. The acreage is a grass lot as of 2012/2013.

The First Christian Church was built in 1871, probably the 3rd church in Henderson as the Baptist and Methodist had a church building before 1871.


SCHOOLS
METHODIST SCHOOL located North Street and Third Street in Henderson TN. It operated as a Elementary and High School from about 1885 until May 1913.
