The Washington District of North Carolina was in a remote area west of the Appalachians. It was the successor to the Watauga Association and asked to be annexed into North Carolina in 1775. It later became part of the State of Franklin and the Southwest Territory before becoming part of Tennessee. Regardless of the name changes of the area in question, the important fact is that this is the earliest listing of residents of the area that was to become Tennessee. In looking over the names, we can see the beginnings of the history of the state with these men paying their tax as early as 1778. This early tax list has some unique features in it such as “the name ‘single man’ or the name ‘religion’ such as Dunkers, Minonite, etc” The tax list is unique in it does not account only for livestock or acreage, but “cash money on hand”. There were no banks at the time so the territory needed to know of financial support if needed. Even when John Sevier became Governor in 1796, he would borrow money from individuals and stores to keep the state solvent.
