Tributaries of the Cumberland in Davidson County[edit]

Although the old Tennessee Gazateer lists Poplar Creek and Sycamore Creek as important tributaries of the Cumberland in Davidson County, I wasn't able to find either of them in the 1982 Cumberland River Navigational Charts or the 1994 U.S. Geological Survey Water-Data Report for Tennessee. All of the other tributaries could be found in both modern references. I imagine they have either disappeared due to dams or other development or been renamed. I have removed them from the list for now. Kaldari 01:38, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

Davidson County, TN versus NC[edit]

Please note the reference to NC, which appears to be a typo since this article is dicussing Davidson, TN.

"Davidson County is the oldest county in Middle Tennessee. It dates to 1783, when the North Carolina legislature created the county and named it in honor of William Lee Davidson, a North Carolina officer who died in the Revolutionary War on January 1, 1782."

That's not a typo. If I understand the history correctly, Tennessee was part of North Carolina at that time, and the county was created by the North Carolina legislature. --Orlady (talk) 20:37, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
Correct. Kaldari (talk) 21:01, 21 October 2010 (UTC)
