DeKalb Tennessee newspapers prior to 1890 - need to find copies or someone who is willing to go through them.

+3 votes
I'm hoping to source out where I may be able to find (hopefully online) newspapers from the DeKalb county Tennessee 1894 and earlier.  I'm tracing a whole bunch of families that intermingled there and it would be invaluable to be able to obtain a copy - or work with someone to go through them for me and copy articles out of them when they see the family names that match.

Particularly the Drivers, Crooks, Warford, Roberts and Banes among a few others.

I've listed one of the profiles below.

Also looks like about 1884 Tilmon Crook had a land dispute that he sold land he didn't have title to  and a few others are mentioned in the chancery books..however we are also dealing with duplicate family names like Martha Roberts and I really need to sort out which ones married the Crooks perhaps the newspaper may have mention

If you can't get newspaper access, you might find good stuff in the Tennessee Historical Society's newsletter. It's searchable . PDF read free or download

I saw your query or post and I thought I might could help,  I went thru and found some information on I believe Roberts and Warford, and it is quite long so I cannot type it here. So I copied and Paste it in my email and I will print it out at the library since my printer is down,  And I am thinking it should be close to 8 to 10 pages so I will have to drop them in the mail to you, And You can trust me with your address, so if you want those papers Please let me know where to mail them to and I will be glad to do it. It wouldn't take that much to mail them so don't worry about this ok. I got it. Just let me know where to mail them.  Thanks for letting me help you work on this. While I am at the library ---genealogy center I can look into the DeKalb Co. Tenn books and see what I can find,  Who knows they may just have a lot. Thanks again for letting me work this.   Nancy

I found this, but I think it would be better if I had full names and towns:

The link takes you to the article.  If you click on the magnifying glass, guess what?  You can see the full sized image.
