In Reply to: Re: John Haywood, Haywood County by Cathy Manly Sockol of 1076

"The North Carolina Gazetteer" by William S. Powell lists both a town of Haywood and a county of Haywood. In the description of the town, it says "Named for John Haywood (1755-1827), state treasurer". In the description of the county, it says "It was named for John Haywood (1755-1827), state treasurer from 1787 to 1827". The book "Formation of the North Carolina Counties 1663-1943" by David Leroy Corbitt says "It was named in honor of John Haywood, treasurer of North Carolina, 1787-1827". Haywood became a county separate from Buncombe in 1808, during the tenure of John Haywood. It is evident that he was highly esteemed in the state.
