Claiborne County was founded in 1801. It was named in honor
of William C. C. Claiborne, who was then governor of the Mississippi Territory. He was judge of the Superior Court
of Tennessee, 1796-97, and the representative in Congress, 1797-1801. Later he would become the Governor of Louisiana
and was senator-elect from that state at the time of his death.
