North Carolina - From Statehood to 1800

This General Assembly met in Tarborough from November 19th to December 22nd in 1787.

During 1786, the NC Legislature created Hawkins County and Sumner County. These two counties sent their first delegates to the NC General Assembly in 1787.

During the earlier 1786/1787 session, the NC Legislature created Robeson County, and its first delegates showed up later in the same session.

* Alexander Martin was elected Speaker of the Senate. He had to resign as a Delegate to the Continental Congress before being elected to the Senate.

Sherwood Haywood was appointed Clerk. Montford Stokes was appointed Assistant.

(1) John Skinner was elected to the Council of State on December 14th. Apparently, he continued as a Senator until this General Assembly closed, then took his seat on the Council of State.
