History

Early Settlement

The first European settler of what eventually became Morristown was a farmer named Gideon Morris. It is recorded in Goodspeed's "History of Tennessee" that Gideon, along with an unspecified number of his siblings, arrived in the area of present-day Morristown from the Watauga Settlement, a short-lived semi-autonomous settlement located in North-east Tennessee that was originally leased from the resident Cherokee tribes during the 1770s. Wikisource has original text related to this article: Watauga Petition The Watauga Association (sometimes referred to as the Republic of Watauga or the Watauga Settlement) was an semi-autonomous government from 1772 to 1777 in what is now Northeast Tennessee. ... East Tennessee is a name given to approximately the eastern third of the state of Tennessee. ...


Records in North Carolina indicate that the Morris clan moved to the Watauga Settlement from North Carolina. According to Cora Davis Brooks, author of "History of Morristown 1787 - 1936": Official language(s) English Capital Raleigh Largest city Charlotte Area  Ranked 28th  - Total 53,865 sq mi (139,509 km²)  - Width 150 miles (240 km)  - Length 560[1] miles (901 km)  - % water 9. ...

"Gideon Morris was listed as one of the signers of the petition to annex Watauga to North Carolina in 1775, and in the Fall of the same year he served in Colonel Christian's expedition against the Indians. (N. C. Colonial Records, Vol. 10, p. 708) ( King's Mountain Men by Miss Kate White.)"
"In 1778 Gideon Morris appeared in court and swore allegiance ('History of South-west Virginia', by Summers). Lands were granted by the State of North Carolina to Gideon Morris in Washington, Greene and Hawkins counties. He probably settled on portions of these grants either in 1787 or 1791, which was included in Jefferson county and now in Hamblen county."

The settlement founded by Gideon has, as far as it has been noted, always been called Morristown. No known records exist demonstrating land grants in the area to anyone aside from Gideon and his extended family. Jefferson County, TN., which is due west from Hamblen County, possesses a record in the Jefferson County Court House of the results of the execution of Gideon Morris's will, which includes property deeded to John Morris in 1817 for a 400 acre tract of land originally granted to Gideon by the State of North Carolina, and presumably comprising only a portion of the original grant due to the known size of the Morris family at that time. The record further details the fact that Gideon lived on the 400 acre tract of land until his death, and the inference that he was buried in the Morris family graveyard ends the record.


The Morris family graveyard was, logically, located near to the original family home. It is easy to find, located on what is now called East Louise Avenue a bit south of Main Street in East Morristown, southeast of the Morristown-Hamblen Library. Today it consists of a single acre enclosed by a fence of iron, and has a simple sign affixed to its gate with nothing more than 'Morris' on the plate. The oldest date recorded on the burial slabs is for one John Morris, born in 1770. His wife, Rachel, is recorded nearby as having been born in 1786. Another notable stone marks the resting place of Mary Spoon, listed as born in 1779 and died in 1882, which would make her over one-hundred years old at the time of death.


Gideon was known to have had three sons with him when he arrived in the area of present-day Morristown. Their names are recorded as John, Gideon, and Shadrack.


One daughter of Gideon's by name of Elizabeth, is listed in official records as having married a man with the name of Hurst, and their son was James Hurst. At the present time, the name Hurst is fairly common in Hamblen and surrounding counties, with many of those bearing the name in prominent positions in those counties.


20th century

In the late 1990s, large numbers of Hispanic immigrants, including many illegal immigrants, settled in Morristown, especially in the rural parts of Hamblen County south and east of the Morristown city centre.
