I am about 40 miles north of Linden. Typical Western TN rural county. Still mostly agriculture/forestry. Located next to TN River, with a bit of water commerce. Fairly significant population of Amish/Menonites. Jackson is the nearest larger community and it is where likely you would be referred for health care, etc. Some industry, but not much. You would likely have to bring in a needed skill. Most of the TN river counties have an unemployment rate of 8-10%; however, that is somewhat deceiving in that isn't a strong work ethic. The correction center in Oney (north of Clarksville) is usually hiring security personnel. Fairly decent pay for the area if you can stand it. Minimum security prison which looks much like a campus.

You can contact the Chamber of Commerce there and be sent an information packet about the area.
