|Garry Brown found a Map in the State Archives
with the Civil Districts of Weakley County, Tennessee for the year 1950.
It looks like it would be the same for U.S. Census years 1920 & 1930
(maybe 1910 too). Many thanks to Garry for sharing. I have played
with it, adding larger District Numbers, so you can see a little better
and also added the towns of Greenfield, Sharon, Martin, and Dresden.
You can compare it to our Maps of 1870 and 1880 which had 18 Civil Districts to see where districts 19 thru 25 were made. There is no District 21.
This map has the District lines plus major roads & RR. The North Fork of the Obion River is still the Southern border line for D-17, D-13, & D-1. It is the Northern border for D-3, D-2, D-20, D-4, D-25, & D-5. The Middle Fork of the Obion River is bordered on the North by D-19, D-8, D-7, D-24, & D-6. It is bordered on the South side of River by D-22, D-9, D-10, D-23, & D-11. The South Fork of the Obion is really off the map but is bordered on the North side of River by D-22, D-9, D-15, & D-16.
Hope this helps you see in what part of Weakley County your Kinfolks lived.....MaryCarol
