Fincastle County, North Carolina GenealogyEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
The original settlers south of what is now Bristol (Independent City), Virginia, for a time considered themselves residents of Fincastle County, Virginia. In time they became aware they were over the border in what should have been considered at-the-time in North Carolina, but which is now part of Tennessee. For awhile these early setters may have conducted their county business with Fincastle County, Virginia, rather than with a North Carolina (or what would become a Tennessee) county where they were actually living.
Fincastle County, Virginia, was discontinued in 1777. For early records of settlers in Tennessee/North Carolina who thought they were Fincastle County, Virginia, see records in Montgomery County, Virginia.
