Petition 24-1-1799 to the Tennessee General Assembly
See also Petition No. 17-1-1799, transcribed separately on this Web site.

Undated

Inhabitants of Grainger County dispute making three counties instead of two from the area bound between the Cocke County line at French Broad and Chuckey Rivers to the foot of Cumberland Mountains, or the Indian boundary. They recommend putting that part of Grainger lying next to Jefferson County as far as the top of Clinch Mountains to it and make a Superior Court District between that of Washington and Hamilton.
