BY OBA L. JONBS IV Since coming to Transylvuuia county, about six years uro, the writer has been told by many peo ple that they were “born in Bnn- eombe, raised in Henderson and now live in Transylvania, and have never moved in my life.” This seeming paradox is quit« trno when the f^peaker was horn prior to 1838, for it was in that year that this .‘Section, as a ])art of Henderson ctiunty, was severed from Dun- I'ombe. But the territory now embraced i;i 'I’runsylvania county has been a ])«rt of more than three counties. Inoltiding that part that was at one time a part of Haywood, then Jtick- son and now Transylvania, this county has been connected, re- suotely in some cases, it is true, witli at least fifteen county govern- tnents since the time the state was first settled. This article will be devoted to the county’s pedigree, showiii;? these various connections. In 1()(>3 the northern part of rurolina, which then included what is now both North and South Curo- lir.a, was givi-n the name of Albe- ma.b- prefinct. This precinct, or 1‘v^untr, iiJc’.TiiUd all the territorj’ jiow♦■inbim’ed in the states of North t arolina and Tennessee, although very little of it was settled at that time. In lfiG.5 the Lords ProprietOJ's entered into an agreement with John Yeamans whereby the section now in Transylvania became a part of Clarendon precinct. This pre cinct was abandoned in 1GC7 but was S'.'ttled again in 1093. Prior to ITiS'J, when the state of Tennessee was ceded to the United States, the method of establishing nev,' counties was to locate a eastern boundary, giving all east of the line the name ol the old county, while uli west of the line went into the new county, the western boundary being the Mississi]ipi river. In this mann*^r the counties started on the ‘•oast, gradually working westward, the westernmost county always in cluding the mountain section. In 17::.’2 New Hanover was cut off from ADx^marle and Clarendon. Transyl- vaiii.'i next fell in as a part of Bladen precinct in 1734. The next division threw the western part of the state into An.^o*i county, this being the first time the word county was supplied, t!ie divisions being referred to as p»-ecincts before that time. Anson county was established in 1849. A part of Ausun wus taken to form Rowan in 17rj3, this county being named in honor of Matthew Rowan, the president of the council, who was at that time acting governor. While Arthur Dobbs was gover nor of the state, Mecklenburg coun ty was formed out of a part of Ai.son in 1702, nnd this section then became a part of Mecklen burg. Soon after the movement of settlers to the rich lands in tre west made it inconvenient for the people to attend county matters at Charlotte, a new county was form ed. This was called Try on county. of Robert Morris, who financed the Revolution, and who had large holdings of timber lands in this section. This name was changed to Asheville in November, 1797, in honor of Samuel Ashe, one time governor of the state. It was while the upper French Broad valley w’as a part of Bun combe that the state of Georgia set up a county government in this valley, as related last w^eek in the Brevard News, and it was on Bun combe soil that the Walton war was fought. In 1S3H Henderson county was cat off Buncombe. Henderson was tho first western county to have a defined boundary lino, all previous lines being a matter of supposition. Transylvania county was formed in 1S61, the act establishing the county being ratified by the general assembly on the 15th day of Feb ruary of that year. About two thirds of the county came from Henderson, w’^hile the other third A’as once a part of Jackson, and be fore that a part of Haywood. QUEBEC QUIRKS Mrs. Joe Stepo t.f Ho^:man was a visitor at the home of Mrs. L. E. Reece last Sunday. Carl and Leo Banfher left Quebec last Monday for Suco, Montana, where they each go to lakn up a homestead on the Montana ]))nnes. That the co operative si)irit still exists in this community was mani fested on Thnrsdav of last week when Gideon Miller bad a “grub bing” and 24 men were present both in the field and at the dinner table. The crowd did an excellent day’s work. After bupjjer the yonng folks spent a few hours to gether trying their hand« at quilt ing.

WATERS, Prop. mi that in 1779 the county was di alled, takinir the nam-' of Ruther- '■ 'd Hnd Lincoln. 1. years prior to i’.o divison of i'ryon county, Burke county was foinitd from a part of Rowan, and tiie western section of Tryon took the name of Ruthertord. It is quite probable that a part of the present county of Transylvania was in each of the counties of Burke and Rutherford. The dividing line was never established. Lands now in Transylvania were entered in both counties, and both seemingly were treated as authentic. In 1791, after the state had ceded the state of Tennessee to the national government, the county of Bnncombo was formed, taking part of both Burke and Rntherford connties. Buncombe then em hraoed nearly all the western part of tho stttte.
