1 The Explorer
in 1766 Colonel James Smith of Pennsylvania, who later was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, with a party consisting of Uriah Stone, Wm Baker, Joshua Horton, and a negro servant belonging to him set out to explore what the Indians said was great bodies of rich land. This rich land between the Ohio and Cherokee Rivers (now the state of Tennessee), had recently been ceded to the King of England. The party explored and roughly charted the hinterland and named the Stone River for Uriah Stone. The Cumberland River and Mountains were named for the Duke of Cumberland, who had married Anne Horton, an heiress and a person of note in English Society.
When they reached the place now known as Nashville they turned back and retraced their steps to the Watauga Country, where Joshua Horton remained.
