First Families of the Lost State of Franklin

by: John C. Rigdon
This book provides family sketches and genealogical information on the first families to settle in the area of East Tennessee that originally made up the state of Franklin. The earliest settlers date back to the mid 1700s.

By the year 1770, some 70 families had settled in the area bounded by the Watauga, Nolichucky, and Holston river valleys. Most migrated from Virginia via the Great Valley, although a few were believed to have been Regulators fleeing North Carolina after their defeat at the Battle of Alamance.

Franklin Square

by: Paul van Wie PhD, Kiera Grassi, Hannah Mutum
First settled in the 1600s, the present-day village of Franklin Square developed as a German-speaking farming community in the late 1800s. The fertile farmland of Franklin Square supplied New York City with all types of fresh produce into the mid-20th century, when waves of suburban growth transformed fields into residential neighborhoods. Franklin Square’s rich history exemplifies the larger trends in America’s history. George Washington visited in 1790, and the poet Walt Whitman taught in the local school in 1840.
