Adjustments: In 1975, TN 69A south was extended south replacing more TN 69 to US 70 Camden
In 1983, it appears TN 69A was truncated slightly to TN 191 in Camden (zero mile marker is at this location).

I have not found a map from this era to show where exactly they meant by this. The railroad depot was due south of the Natchez Trace Rd/Extension St intersection, so I believe this was a renumbering of TN 69 (moved to Dogwood/Cherokee Aves). Would've been Natchez Trace Rd, Extension St and Forrest Ave (then US 70) back to TN 69 Cherokee Ave.
I don't know when TN 69A was decommissioned but it was no later than 1975 when TN 69 was moved well west of this area onto current US 641's alignment.
