The beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina
became home to many, many Tiptons from the late eighteenth century on. By 1798, Major Jonathan Tipton (1750-1833) had moved from the Watauga Settlements to these mountains. Until Tennessee statehood in 1796, the Settlements had been part of North Carolina.
North Carolina was one of the original 13 colonies of the United States and became a State in 1789. Tennessee was formed from the western part of North Carolina beginning in the Blue Ridge Mountains and running west to the Mississippi River.
