Dear Ms. Hendricks,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Public Sheriff’s sales of properties are often listed under the court records for the particular County of sale. We suggest you contact the Tennessee State Library and Archives to inquire about where the Bedford County Sheriff’s sale records for that particular time period are located. If the estate of Joseph Hastings was probated, you may also inquire as to those records are as well, as they may contain a reference to the property transaction
We also suggest you consult the FamilySearch wiki on Bedford County Tennessee, especially the sections on Land and Property Records and Court Records.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research.
