Washington County, TN, originally came under the jurisdiction of North Carolina. In 1772 settlers   living south of the Holston River, on the Watauga and Nolichucky Rivers, within the boundaries of    the North Carolina colony, organized the Watauga Association, giving America its first written
    constitution. In 1775 the Wataugans changed their name to "Washington District." The main
     settlements in the Washington District were W atauga, Carter's Valley, and Nolichucky.
Washington County, located in northeast Tennessee, is about 15 miles south of Virginia and
      10 miles north of North Carolina. The Nolichucky River courses through the southern end of            the county, and the Watauga River forms the northeast boundary of the county.

      As Washington County, NC and the mother county of Tennessee, Washington County gave        rise to Sullivan County, 1779; Greene County, 1783. After statehood, Washington County         gave rise to Carter County, 1796. Southern portions of Washington and Carter counties        formed Unicoi County in 1875. Because of boundary changes, the researcher needs to be             mindful of these and other neighboring counties when looking for ancestors. 

A year later, at its Nov 1777 session, the general assembly of North Carolina approved the formation of Washington county, assigning it the boundaries of most of present-day Tennessee:

"Beginning at the north-westwardly point of the County of Wilkes [North Carolina], in the Virginia line; thence, with the line of Wilkes County, to a point twenty-six miles south of the Virginia line; thence due west to the ridge of the Great Iron Mountain, which, heretofore, divided the hunting-grounds of the Overkill Cherokees, from those of the Middle Settlements and Vallies; thence, running a southwardly course along the said ridge, to the Uneca Mountain, where the trading-path crosses the same, from the Valley to the Overhills; thence, south, with the line of this state adjoining the State of South-Carolina; thence, due west to the great River Mississippi; thence, up the same river to a point due west from the beginning.

Hello,
I'm looking for any info available for the existence of a cemetery in Washington County, TN, called "The Old Barnes Cemetery".  It is supposed to be just outside of Johnson City, TN.  In particular, Peter Sellers/Sellars is recorded as having been buried there.

So far, I've been unable to uncover even the existence of this cemetery nor any records of any kind of those buried there.

Any assistance in either locating this cemetery or records of those buried there would be GREATLY appreciated!

Michael Sellers
