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

Fincastle County, Virginia, was discontinued in 1777. At that time Fincastle was divided to form Montgomery County, Virginia, Washington County, Virginia, Washington District, North Carolina (see Washington (old) County, North Carolina), and Kentucky County (now most of Kentucky State).

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