1. All counties marked with an asterisk * are no longer extant
or no longer within the bounds of North Carolina. North Carolina
currently has 100 extant counties.
2. All counties formed from Bath and Albemarle were actually
"Precincts" of those two counties until 1739 when they all became
designated as "counties", and thus dissolved Albemarle and Bath Counties.
3.The 7 Counties marked (TN) are in what is now the State of
Tennessee, but at that time was part of North Carolina. This territory
was ceded to the U.S. Government in 1790. From 1790 through 1796 this
land was known as the "Territory South of the Ohio River". In 1796 it
became the State of Tennessee.
4. Walton County, Georgia was formed erroneously by the State of Georgia
inside North Carolina's boundaries in 1803. This caused quite a bit of
confusion at the time. The county boundaries are impossible to figure
out, but was in the area of modern Jackson and Transylvania Counties.
In those days (1803-1812) the area was also claimed by Buncombe and
Haywood Counties.
