Ordering Enumeration of Male 1891 Voters

1891 ENUMERATION OF MALE VOTERS

The 1890 census was destroyed in a records warehouse fire in Washington DC before microfilm was invented. There are no Tennessee census records for 1890.

There is, however, a list of male voters in each county in 1891. Some of these voter lists include ages, but no other personal or family information is provided. Not all have been indexed. We cannot search for a record if the county has not been indexed. Published indexes are available for the following counties: Anderson, Benton, Blount, Carroll, Carter, Cheatham, Clay, Cumberland, Dickson, Dyer, Fentress, Gibson, Greene, Hancock, Hawkins, Henry, Hickman, Houston, Humphreys, Jackson, Johnson, Knox, Lake, Lawrence, Lewis, Loudon, Macon, Morgan, Obion, Overton, Perry, Pickett, Putnam, Roane, Scott, Sevier, Shelby, Smith, Stewart, Sullivan, Trousdale, Unicoi, Washington, Wayne, Wayne, Weakley, and Williamson.

Contact us by e-mail for more information about searching these voter lists. The Library and Archives will respond to e-mail requests promptly; response time may vary, depending on the amount of research required to answer your question and the unique nature of your request. If you need immediate assistance you may call the reference desk at (615) 741-2764 or visit us in person.
