Decatur County

Decatur County, Tennessee

United States


Decatur County

Study of families in Decatur County, Tennessee during the years 1830-1900.

Decatur was created in November 1845 from the part of Perry County west of the Tennessee River in response to a petition by citizens on the west side of the river who lacked easy access to the county seat.

This county is named after naval hero Stephen Decatur, Jr., who gained national recognition in both the First and Second Barbary Wars and the American War of 1812.

The county seat is Decaturville.
