John Sevier, sometimes referred to as the Father of Tennessee, was born in Virginia, migrated to what is now Washington County, TN, and became governor of the failed State of Franklin. When Tennessee became a state in 1796, he became its first Governor.
Sevier served six two-year terms as governor, from 1796 to 1801 and 1803 to 1809, and then served two terms in the U.S. House of Representatives, from 1811 until his death in 1815.
