Blount County Tennessee Church Records

Blount County has had a number of churches in its jurisdiction, but few records are available to assist the genealogist in their quest. Since birth and death records in Blount County were not publicly kept until 1881, the church record may be the only source of research. If you are aware of the church your ancestor attended then you should find out first whether that church still exists. If the church still exists then they may still have copies, or know of the location for their records.

Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church
This church is still actively serving the community. Its records are stored at the Presbyterian Historical Society in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and in 1981 the Genealogical Society of Utah filmed this and included it as Film #1310919 at FamilySearch. Unfortunately this film is only available at a FHC and cannot be accessed via your home computer due to usage constraints. The following information is available on the microfilm:

  • minutes
  • collections and expenses 1887-1901, 1911-1912
  • members
  • retired members
  • adult baptisms 1879-1894
  • infant baptisms 1874-1890, 1895, 1901, 1911
