North Carolina in the 1800s

North Carolina State Senate

1836-1837

This General Assembly met from November 21, 1836 to January 23, 1837.

Per the 1835 North Carolina Constitution Convention, the Senate was authorized a total of fifty (50) delegates from fifty (50) districts apportioned on approximately equal populations. After each U.S. Census, these districts were to be adjusted, again based on approximately equal populations. Each delegate was elected for a two (2) year term of office.

During the 1836 session, the NC Legislature created Davie County, but it was not until 1842 that Davie County began sending delegates to the General Assembly.
