I’m not related to any member of this family.

1940 is the last available census at this time.

Your problem is that the 1890 census was destroyed by fire in the 1920's. John would be abt 9 or 10 in 1890. Instead he will be abt 19 in 1900.

TN Vital Records -
The Vital Statistics Law, established by Chapter 30, Public Acts of 1913, was passed and became effective January 1, 1914, for statewide registration of birth & death registration.
The Tennessee Office of Vital Records retains birth records from 1914. (NOTE: Beginning in 2014, birth records will begin transferring to the Tennessee State Library & Archive since we retain the birth records for 100 years. Then they will transfer on a year by year schedule.) Death records are only retained by our office for 50 years. Once the death records become 50 years old they are transferred to the Library & Archive also. Presently we have death records from 1960 to the present.
Once the records are transferred to the L & A, they become true public records and anyone can access them.
Please feel free to contact me if you need further assistance.
