Blount County Residents in the Tennessee Southern Claims Commission Index

Ancestry US

This index lists Blount County Tennessee residents who filed claims with the Southern Claims Commission from 1871 to 1873 which were subsequently investigated, deliberated over, and either allowed or disallowed. These 76 Blount County residents claimed their property had been taken by United States military personnel for use in the Civil War. The date below is the date the claim was either allowed or disallowed. It took up to six years for some claimants to have a disposition for their claim. Barred claims were those where sufficient evidence was not submitted by the deadline on 3 March 1873 so were not considered.

The claim files include interesting detail about people and about the Civil War period in Tennessee. Each claimant was required to describe his losses in detail, and to prove his loyalty to the Union. Witnesses gave testimony in support of his allegations. The paperwork in the files is often extensive.
