* Matthias E. Manly was elected Speaker of the Senate. He resigned, date unknown. Joseph H. Wilson was then elected Speaker of the Senate. Joseph A. Engelhard was the Clerk.
(1) One source asserts that Leander S. Gash was from the recently-created Transylvania County in 1866. A second source asserts that he was from Henderson County in 1866. A third source asserts he was still living in Buncombe County in 1866. This Author's research indicates that it is "most-likely" that he lived in Henderson County during 1866.
