Before It Was Tennessee

Mansker's Fort in *Goodlettsville, TN

FLOWERING of the CUMBERLAND by Harriette Simpson Arnow:

...Prior to 1790 Davidson and Sumner counties were parts of North Carolina; the same counties were parts of the Territory of the United States South of the River Ohio, 1790-1796; it was not until the creation of the State of Tennessee in 1796 that any county was officially a part of Tennessee.

*Part of Goodlettsville is in Davidson County and part in Sumner County
