I have ancestors listed in the 1900 Williamson Co. census. They are also apparently listed on a Farm Schedule. Where do I find the Farm Schedule? Would I be better off viewing it at either your Archives, Library or the TSLA? Also, approximately where are the 14th Civil District and the 8th Civil District, are they near each other?

Married in Franklin on Dec 30 1834 -- William and Mary "Polly". Mary may be Cherokee Indian. William from NC or GA and Mary from SC. Married just prior to 1835 Henderson Roll from the 1835 Treaty of New Echota that required indians to be registered. Perhaps marriage date significant to keep Mary from enrolling.
