I am trying to perform a title search on a piece of property to locate where my Roberts family line lived while in Anderson County, Tennessee between 1800 - 1818. I have traced a tract of land once owned by my Ancestor to Nimrod Funk by a 1822 deed. I was hoping to trace the land via the Grantor/Grantee Deed Indexes but I am hitting a small wall.
I do not see where the land in question was transferred by Nimrod Funk -- I sm guessing it may have passed on to a child and may have been transferred by them. I see some deeds by Samuel Funk of Morgan County, IL where he and his wife Elizabeth transferred 3 or 4 tracts of land in Anderson County, TNto Michael Spessard in the late 1830's. At first I thought one of these may be the land I was looking for but it looks like these transfers were tied to Elizabeth's fathers estate (John Shephard).
Do any of you know anything about this Nimrod Funk ? I don't find him in the 1820 or 1830 Census records for Anderson County--Everything I know about him is listed above.
Any information about Nimrod Funk and his family will be greatly appreciated.
