  • Notes 
    • Dr. William Norton, the first known physician to practice in Normandy, was a native of North Carolina. By 1885, he was the oldest practicing physician within a hundred miles of Tullahoma, Coffee Co., TN.

      He came to Tennessee at an early date and was a pioneer of Bedford County.  He resided about one and a half miles from Normandy on Cascade Branch in 1863 as shown on an old 1863 Civil War map. He practiced medicine for 50 years in Coffee and Bedford Counties. In the Normandy Business Directory of 1876, Dr. Norton is listed as a Normandy physician, but, later in life, he moved to Tullahoma and made his home with his son William.
