About John Fine

Notes

Captain John Fine and his wife Grace came to East Tennessee from New Market , Virginia prior to 1783. They settled along Cherokee Creek (at that time Washington County, North Carolina) and joined Cherokee Baptist Church in October 1791. In 1793, John received a land grant for 350 acres from the state of North Carolina. He served in the American Revolutionary War.

John was listed on the Greene County, Tennessee Tax List in 1783: 4th District, 100 acres, 1 horse, 6 cows, 60 total.

Grace was a member of the Linville Creek Baptist Church in Virginia prior to moving to Tennessee. John settled in Washington County along with another pioneer family named Andes. In the 1814 Tax List of Washington County, John Fine had 350 acres, with sons Elijah and Abraham paying a poll tax.

Deeds indicate John had died by 1828 and identified his children as:

  • Elijah (married Barbara Andes), Abraham (married Margaret Lusser), Rebecca (married John Smith), Maria (married William Andes), and Mary (unmarried).

By 1836 the 8th Civil District was labeled Fine's District.
