Franklin was the eastern third of Tennessee--a "state" in its own right from 1784-88. I hadn't known of a Jefferson in the northwest; but I do know that there was an attempt to create a State of Jefferson out of the Texas Panhandle in 1915.

Another wild stab, but everytime I've looked at a map of the Scandinavian countries, especially Sweden and Finland, they look like a sponge.

Without looking at a map right now, I'll say Finland.

Yes, but , there is a lot more. The area in question not only is present day eastern TN. Also included is SW VA. and NW NC. Elizabethton ,. Tn. is the Capital. The oldest town in TN. To this day , the folks in the area have an speak all their own. When they say "Tennessee ", they speak"Tenn a see".The Scots settled the area in the 1700s. A very independent lot. Their part in the Revolutionary war is an interesting read. Several movies were filmed in the area , about the area.
