1785--Fries' Historical notes:

"The state of Franklin refused to return to North Carolina, and in March elected members of a legislature, which in turn elected John Sevier as governor, appointed county officers, etc., and appointed William Cocke as delegate to the Congress of the United States. Attempts were made to secure the cooperation of the part of Virgina lying west of the mountains, but the Virginia Assembly pronounced the plan treasonable. Thrice during the year it was reported that the Franklinites were negotiating for the incorporation of the Cherokee Indians in the State of Franklin, but not all the chiefs would agree. In November, 1785, the State of Franklin adopted a Constitution." [pg. 2067]

"May 3. The singstunde was attended by Col. Joseph Martin, who spent the
night here on his way to Charleston where he and other Commissioners are to consider the affairs of the Indians. He told us that the Cherokees on the Tennessee River often speak of the visit of Br. Martin Schneider, and seem
to wish that he would come again and stay with them; but that this would not be wise just now when there are certain misunderstandings between them and the white people. He confirmed the report that some time ago the western counties of this State had cut themselves off and assumed the name of Franklin, had elected their own Governor and other state officials, and now had sent a representative to Congress to try to secure recognition as a separate State. Whether this State will agree to the division or will oppose it strongly is as yet most uncertain." [pg. 2080]
