Early Settler of Washington County, Tennessee Certificates
Washington County in northeast Tennessee was established in 1777 as part of North Carolina. This vast area was designated as the Washington District. During the early years settlers arrived and politics changed, so did the size and name of the district. It became known by various names including the State of Franklin, the Southwest Territory and in 1796 as part of the new state called Tennessee. Jonesborough was established as the county seat and the area flourished.
To celebrate and honor those who came to the area prior to 1840 the Jonesborough Genealogical Society is proud to offer a commemorative certificate to eligible persons.
