The birthplace of Admiral David Glasgow Farragut is incorrect and should be corrected. His birth place was at Lowe’s Ferry and the original cabin where he was born was in existence for many years at that location. Major George Farragut, an aide to the newly appointed governor of The Territory of the United States South of the River Ohio, William Blount, was dispatched by Blount to the Mero District on the Cumberland River, to deliver a copy of the President’s commission to General Daniel Smith, who had been appointed secretary of the territory.
