    Did any other state have as many on the court as Tennessee? This seems like a lot of appointments for just one state. Do you know the answer to my question? I will be back.

    That is an interesting question that I can partially answer. The state of Virginia has provided more United States Supreme Court Justices than Tennessee. Two more ( eight).I also know that several justices from New York and Pennsylvania have been appointed over the years but I do not know the exact number, but I will find out and post that number soon.Thank you for reading this article.I appreciate it.Betsy
