In 1807, the requisites for the new county were fulfilled by the Duck River settlers, then know as the "inhabitants of Rutherford County." The signed petition was presented to Joseph Dickson who represented Rutherford County in the House of Representatives, and he in turn presented the petition to the House while seated at Knoxville in October 1807. After much debate in the Senate and House, the bill for the establishment of Bedford County was passed on December 3, 1807, and named for Revolutionary soldier Thomas Bedford. Thomas Bedford was deceased at that time, having died in 1804 at Old Jefferson in Rutherford County. He never resided in the territory of the new county but some of his relatives resided in Bedford County. Thomas Bedford Moseley (born 1788, died 1866) of the Fairfield Community was his nephew, a son of Ann Bedford Moseley.
