[Note: the Hatfield on this list are generally considered to be sons of "old" George Hatfield of Lee Co., VA]   Petition to Form Russell County - December 1785 The petition of sundry inhabitants of Clinch River, Moccasin Creek, Powells Valley, and others, citizens of Washington County humbly represent that your petitioners are situated from the line of Montgomery as it crosses near the source of the Clinch River, down the same eight miles; thence to the extreme settlements of Powells Valley forty more. The greatest portion of your petitioners have to travel from twenty five miles and some eighty or an hundred; moreover are generally interrupted by Clinch Mountain and the north branch of the Holstein River; the former affording very difficult passes; the latter much danger and difficulty in crossing it in spring and after considerable rains; continuous to its southern bank, a chain of hills almost as difficult as Clinch Mountain; so that great difficulty arises to your Petitioners not only in attending Courts, but Courts Martial. And from the extent of schism between our small settlements make it exceedingly difficult to arrange companies without subjecting some to travel 15 and 20 miles to private mustery. There are two difficulties in the militia law that principally affect your Petitioners. There are evils small indeed to the feelings we constantly undergo when obliged to leave our helpless families exposed at so very greast distances to obey the laws of our country. And however evident the danger may appear to us will not certainly on our failure of duty plead our excuse. Circumstance alone is sufficient to claim the human respect of the Legislature to remove the grievance. We therefore pray your Honorable House will take our case into consideration and divide the county. We further pray a line may be fixed along Clinch Mountain to the Carolina line; or with the line at present dividing the county into two regiments to the aforesaid Carolina line; then with the said line to Cumberland Mountain including taht existing county between Cumberland Mountain and Montgomery line and Clinch Mountain, or the aforesaid regimental line for the new county and southeast of the said Clinch Mountain remain Washington County; and we your Petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.   Albert, Michael Alderson, Benjamin Alley, David Alley, Hosea Alley, James Sr. Alley, James Jr. Alley, John Alley, Peter Alley, Samuel Asberry, George Asberry, Henry Asberry, John Asberry, William Baker, John Barker, Joel Barnett, Alexander Bays, ----------- Beavers, Alexander Belsher, George Belsher, Thomas Berrker?, Robert Bickley, Charles Bird, Thomas Bird, William Black, Joseph Blackmore, James Blackmore, James Blanton, William Bonem?, John Bowen, Arthur Bowen, John Bowland, Jared Bowland, William Bradley, James Bremley, Archalus Brewster, Michael Bristow, Isaac Brown, James Browning, Francis Bush, James Caar?, Robert Cain, David Calhoun, Davis Campbell, John Campbell, John Carter, John Jr. Carter, Joseph Carter, Norris Carter, Thomas Castles, Jacob Castles, Joseph Cenduncan, William Childress, Abraham Choat, Valentine Clark, George Cockrell, Simon Cole, Jeremiah Colvilk?, ---------- Colvill, Andrew Conway, Thomas Conway, Thomas Cooper, Christopher Cowan, Andrew Cowan, John Cox, David Crabtree, William Craig, James?
