Sevier County, Tennessee

Sevier County was founded September 28, 1794 from Jefferson County. It is bordered on the west by Blount County, with Knox to the northwest, Jefferson on the north and Cocke County on the east. The south and southeast borders of Sevier County are bounded by Swain County, North Carolina.
Sevier County was named in honor of John Sevier, state senator and first governor of Tennessee.
The public records of Sevier County were almost completely destroyed by fire on March 25, 1856. In tracing the early residents of the County it is advisable to search the records of the adjoining counties of Blount, Cocke, Jefferson, and Knox.
