In Response To: Re: Documenting Joshua Compton ()
The LDS FHC's have some court minutes for Davidson County for the period you are interested in. Are those the courts that Joshua Compton presided over as magistrate ? Your guess is as good as mine. Also, I'm not certain if the name of the judge or magistrate would appear in the indexes and that would make searching those films time consuming. If Joshua presided over criminal matters, those court records may not be recorded on film at the LDS FHC. Before you order any LDS films, you may want to check further at the Nashville public library or genealogy society for sources to further educate yourself on the court systems in TN.
