Laurel County was formed December 12, 1825
from parts of Rockcastle, Clay, Knox and Whitley Counties. The county
was named for the Laurel that grows along the banks of the Laurel River.
The framers and establishers of the county met on March 6, 1826, in the
home of Jarvis Jackson, to elect officers and actually establish the county
government and hence establish the county. Laurel County was entitled
to nine justices of the peace. They were Samuel McHargue, William Freeman,
Jarvis Jackson, David Weaver, William Smith, James McNeil, John Pearl,
Jacob Boyers and James Wood. They appointed Lot Pitman as the County Court
Clerk; William Stuart, James Elkins and John Hood were appointed constables;
and John Jackson, the Jailer. More about Laurel county
