Best Answer

Several states, such as Arizona, were part of territories that also formed other states (Arizona was part of the New Mexico territory, and Washington part of the Oregon territory).

However, only four states have been created from existing states. West Virginia and Kentucky were both split off from Virginia: Kentucky in 1790 and West Virginia during the Civil War. Most of Tennessee consists of areas once part of North Carolina, which were split into the Southwest Territory from 1790 to 1796. The state of Vermont was originally claimed by both New Hampshire and New York. Its residents established an independent republic from 1777 to 1791, when it became the 14th US state.
