The Dorman E. Tucker Collection consists primarily of 19th century East Tennessee legal documents (including deeds and land grant records), family history, and miscellaneous papers of ancestral families of Tucker, including the Garst and Nave families. The collection includes the only known document with Henry Johnson’s signature. Henry Johnson was the founder and namesake of Johnson City, Tenn.
Public access to the handwritten document containing Henry Johnson’s signature found in Box 2 is prohibited due to the rarity and fragile nature of the document. A photocopy of the document is available for use in Box 1, folder 4.
