Added notes to the bottom of the 1850 Campbell County TN Mortality Schedules


Disease in this county is of a very diversified character; mostly chronic Fevers.  Are mostly Typhoid though some intermittent on the creeks and rivers.  (??) & pulmonary disease are prevalent.  Some cases of Goitre=Water.  This county is finely watered. In the valleys, the water is a strong limestone, in the balance of the county it is called free stone water.  Perhaps no county has finer waterpower for machinery.  The streams have many falls and great (permanaancy?) in dry weather particularly a stream called Cedar Creek which for the number of it's falls and its durability is I think not excelled anywhere.  It is fed by kindreds of fine springs, breaking out of the immense hills into its (courider?).  There are many (chalybeats?) and sulphur springs, some having valuable medicinal virtue soil.  In the valleys (about one sixth of the county), the soil is stiff clayey and rich.  In the rest of the county the soil is gravelly or sandy and on the creeks and rivers very rich.  The Cumberland mountains occupies about (1/2?) the county and has much rich table land and other lands that are cultivatedrocs.  In the vallyes the rocks are limestone.  In the mountains sandstone and slate.

Timber is tolerably large of fine quality and abundant.  Of forest trees oak is most abundant then pine, hickory, beech poplar, walnut, cedar, sugar maple from which a considerable quantity of sugar is made.  (Elin?) sycamore, birhc, (L...?) also wild cherry, magnolia persimmon, locust, red bud cercis, sorrell tree (de de do??)

Fertilizers Lime is obtained by burning the limestone of the valleys.  The plasteress who have used it say it is the best they have ever seen made from the limestone. Ores There are considerable quantities of lead on which however is not worked.  The iron ore is of superior quality and vastly abundant. One vein particularly runs across the county (20 miles) where the mountains and Powels valley joins just at the base of the mountains.  This ore is only worked in a small way though it yields a large per cent of the best iron.

Coal There are many vast beds of coal mostly of good quality though some contains sulphur.  It is only used by blacksmiths. Charcoal being used in iron making.
