      The following is the will of Mark Monroe from the Sutphen reference:

      From the Union County, TN., Court Records, 3 May 1870:

      A paper writing purporting to be the nuncuperative will of Mark Monroe was this day presented to the County Court for probate, when R. J. Carr & Hardin Skaggs, subscribing witnesses thereto appended, came into open court and being duly sworn according to law testified and said that the nuncuperative will of Mark Monroe, deceased, here presented, was produced to writing by us and that it is the nuncuperative will of Mark Monroe, deceased, and that he was of sound mind and disposing memory at the time of making the same. The court being fully satisfied that said will is sufficiently proven and legally established as the last will and testament of Mark Monroe, deceased, it is ordered by the court that said will be entered of record:

      Nuncuperative Will of Mark Monroe, Deceased

      We, Hardin Skaggs and R. J. Carr, do state that the nuncuperative will of Mark Monroe was made by him on the 27th day of August 1870 to Hardin Skaggs, and to the said R. J. Carr, on the 2nd day of September 1870, in our presence to which we were specially required to bare witnesses by the testator himself in the presence of us, that it was made in his last sickness at John P. Warwick's, in said county of Union, and the same is as follows to wit:

      It was his will and desire that his son W. G. Monroe, should have all of his land that lies North of the crop fence that stands on the south side of the old apple orchard and that he wanted W. G. Monroe to maintain Tempy Monroe, his wife, and Says Monroe his son, and that their maintenance is to come out of the land or the proceeds of the same, but that W. G. Monroe is to have full control of the land.

      And it is my desire that Calvin Monroe, my son have all of my land lying South of the crops fence above named, for the sum of five hundred dollars, to be paid as follows, One hundred dollars each year, and to pay interest of three hundred dollars from date. Said sum of five hundred dollars to be equally divided among my eight heirs that is not mentioned in this will, as to any personal property, there is but little of it probably will take it to pay expenses.

      This 8th day of September 1870.

  • Notes 
    • Mark was a baptist minister and is named as a pioneer minister in Tennessee in "Sketches of Tennessee's Pioneer Baptist Preachers" by J. J. Burnett, D.D. When Union County, Tennessee was formed, Mark donated the land to the county where the courthouse stood.

      Mark sold his property in Powder Springs Gap, Grainger County, in 1840 and bought land in Raccoon Valley of Grainger County, later Union County. The homeplace of Mark Monroe was one quarter mile northeast of the courthouse on highway 33, Maynardville. This property was sold in 1992.
