In 1776 two settlements (North-of-Holston, Fincastle County, and Pendleton, Washington County) in the far northeast of what would eventually become Tennessee considered themselves part of Virginia.[1] Eventually, they became part of Washington District in what should have been considered at-the-time North Carolina, but which is now part of Tennessee. For awhile these early setters may have conducted their county business with Fincastle or Pendleton County, Virginia, rather than with the Washington District of North Carolina (or what would become a Tennessee).

Fincastle County, Virginia, was discontinued in 1777. For early records of settlers in Tennessee/North Carolina who thought they were in Fincastle County, Virginia, see records in Montgomery County, Virginia.[2]
