John Wright of Williamson Co TN --1809--Books in estate inventory of merchant

Book Inventory from the estate of a merchant
Once again while looking thru Probate Records of my Ogilvie line I have happened upon another file near it with a listing of book titles or types.  This listing was a store inventory list which was part of the estate of John Wright of Williamson Co. TN(1809).  I've copied the listing here and I'm sure there are spelling errors.  I did alphabetize the list.

    1. Hi Ruth :-) This listing is from the inventory in the 1809 probate record for John Wright(store owner). I checked the FamilySearch catalog where I should be able to find one but I don't know if I didn't use the right search combo or what but didn't get a bite. There is a Mooring bio in the Goodspeed history for Lake Co TN It's online at http://www.mygenealogyhound.com/tennessee-biographies/tn-lake-county-biographies/wyatt-mooring-genealogy-lake-county-tennessee.html This is near the general area where my Grandfather was born in 1892. born in Fulton Co KY(Jordan) and lived up to just a month short of his 102 birthday. We have no idea why he was born in KY...His family had been in Dekalb/White/Warren Co TN area(yes about the point where they all 3 meet so you have to check all counties for records) since the early 1800s I wish I would have asked him about it. Not sure he would have known though as his Mom died when he was 7 yrs old. Some times you can find books thru the Bookfinder.com site as well. Also it might not hurt to call the Lake Co TN library. Lately I have had a good bit of luck emailing or calling libraries.
