A soldier of the American Revolution, Isaac Thomas guided John Sevier's army to King's Mountain as well as serving with him in many battles against the Indians. Believed to be the first permanent white settler in this area, Thomas lived with and traded among the Cherokee Indians. His home at "The Forks of the Little Pigeon" served as the setting for the first Sevier County Court, Territory of the United States south of The River Ohio in 1794. Thomas suggested this settlement be named "Sevierville" in 1795 in honor of his friend and companion, General John Sevier. with his wife, Elizabeth Massengill(1759-1832). Thomas reared his large family upon their vast land holdings along the west prong of The Little Pigeon River near this site.
