Fentress County, TN Death Records
Copied by Wilma Gibson from Fentress Co., TN Probate Court/County Clerk
March 1905-Nov 1958
Microfilm Roll #A-5470
All of the infants are not listed in these death records, there was one page that had eleven infants listed as UNNAMED, no first name, no last name, therefore I left out most of the infant deaths under six years of age. I have add annotations on some of the violent deaths, information that was printed in the newspaper of the day. At the end of the deaths I have add deaths that I found listed in the newspaper, but do not appear in the death records. I did not try to change the spelling of their words.
