History/Timeline

about 1000 A.D. - There were two indigenous cultures that settled along the Etowah River in this area. The first were called Mound Builders of the Mississippian culture. They built earthwork mound structures and large communities in land encompassing what is now called Bartow County and in neighboring Cherokee County. This group eventually disappeared. The second group were members of the Iroquoian-speaking Cherokee Nation that migrated from the North, possibly from the Great Lakes. They settled in portions of Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and western North Carolina. Several Indian archaeological sites are located within Forsyth County. An Indian mound and village are located on Settendown Creek near the mouth of the Etowah River. Another Indian village is located near Sawnee Mountain on Big Creek.[1][2]

1829 - European Americans discovered gold in the surrounding area and numerous settlers moved in. [1][3] Due to the proximity to the Old Federal Road (a road for travelers from the borders of Georgia to the west), a surge in expansion of regional trade, including the opening of numerous roadside inns and taverns.[4][5]

Eary Settlers in this county were: J. Scudder, L. Blackburn, John Jolly, W. W. Vaughan, A. Cameron, Wm. Rogers, John Rogers, Noah Strong, L. Hudson, B. Allen, W. H. Bacon, L. D. Harris, E. Harris, Geo. Kellogg, Mr. Julian, Alfred Hudson, W. G. Fields.[6]

1832 - Divided from Cherokee lands, formerly the Cherokee Nation, Forsyth County, Georgia's 81st county, was named after John Forsyth, the 33rd Governor of Georgia (from 1827-1829). He was a lawyer from Georgia, the first president of the University of Georgia, attorney general of Georgia, a member of the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, Minister to Spain, and Secretary of State. It is important to note that Georgia did not own the land, it was still held by the Cherokee Nation. The Cherokee fought for their rights for six years, but evenually lost. [4][7][8][9][10]

1831-1833 - In 1831, the Georgia General Assembly authorized the Gold Lottery of 1832 of land lots that had been divided into 40 acres and 160 acres. The 40 acre lots were designated as "gold lots", lots that were close to the Chattahoochee River and probably had a greater potential for gold to be found. The lots dvided into 160 acres were further away from the Chattahoochee River and deemed to be more agricultural in nature. Lots not included in the Gold Lottery bordering the Chattachoochee were divided into lots of less than 33 acres, known as "fractional lots". These lots, drawn in the 1833 Land Lottery, were of more value since they had plentiful water supply from the River. there were a total of more than 4,500 lots in the 1832 and 1833 lotteries The lottery was held in Milledgeville, Georgia, the State Capital of Georgia. Many of the lucky winners sold their lots immediately and never came to Forsyth County, but many of the original surnames from the lottery grants are present in the County today. By this time, the gold rush in North Georgia was waning.[10][11]

1833 - Elections were held by eligible residents for posts of Clerks for Superior and Inferior Courts, Sheriff, Tax Collector, Tax Receiver, County Surveyor, and Coroner.[10] The first County Officers were as follows:

  • Clerk of the Superior Court: Oliver Strickland (possible Wikitree profile)
  • Clerk of the Inferior Court: John Blaylock
  • Sheriff: John Jolly
  • Tax Collector: Lewis Sams
  • Tax Receiver: William Humphrey
  • Surveyor: Thomas Burford
  • Coroner: Alston B. Welborn (possible Wikitree profile)

1834 - The county seat of Cumming was formed, named after Col William Cumming of Augusta, War of 1812 and an advocate of states' rights. Sometime between 1833-1834, the first courthouse was built and this courthouse served until 1900, when it burned. It is not known what location served as the courthouse before that time. [7][9]

1838 - The last of the Cherokee Nation was removed from Forsyth County to Oklahoma. The removal started with placing them in one of two Cherokee Removal Forts, called Fort Scudder and Fort Campbell, located on the Old Federal Road. [7][12]

1840's - New roads were beginning to form and tolls were no longer gathered from the Old Federal Road. Since it was no longer used regularly, it fell into disrepair. Roadside inns and taverns were abandoned. The area became more of an agricultural community after the established businesses died out. This change hit the County pretty hard. [13]

1857 - Milton County (now the northern part of Fulton County) was formed from parts of Cobb, Cherokee, and Forsyth counties. A large part of the population was lost due to this change. [10]

1863-1865 - The Civil War ended, bypassing the county. But the Reconstruction Era brought hunger and poverty to the area. Only two soldiers from Forsyth County were known to have died during the war.[10] Confederate Companies Raised: [14]

  • Co. K, 3rd Regt., 2nd Brig., 1st Div, Georgia State Troops, "Georgia County Confederates" (Forsyth) Note: The served from Oct 1961 to Apr 1862 when most joined other units.
  • Co. D, 2nd Battalion, North Carolina Inf. (became New Co. E, 21st Georgia Infantry), "Concord Rangers" (Forsyth & Dawson)

late 1800's to early 1900's - During this time, the county was predominantly agricultural with only slight growth. Most families made their living by growing corn, cotton, and other staples. [10]

1900-1905 - The first courthouse burned down, originally built about 1833-1834. A new courthouse was completed in 1905, and subsequently burned down in 1973. It was a two-story, brick buildilng with a clock tower[9]

1912 - Sleety Mae Crow (1893-1912), a white woman, was sexually assaulted and murdered, allegedly by a black man. Five black men were arrested. One man, Robert Edwards (abt.1888-1912), was lynched by a mob of thousands. Two of the men, Ernest Knox and and Oscar Daniel (1894-), were convicted and sentenced to be hung. This was the second of 2 incidents that occured. The first was a white woman accused a black man of raping her. As a result, many blacks were arrested and some were physically assaulted by whites. Afterward, whites harassed and intimidated blacks in and around the neighboring counties. They forced 98% of the black population to leave the region in fear of their lives, losing land and personal property that was never recovered. Whites took over the abandoned properties, sometimes without a sale and a legal transfer of title. In 1910, there more than 1,000 blacks in the community, and by 1920, there were only 30 remaining. [1]

1930-1940 - The county began to invest heavily in the chicken industry and it was fairly profitable. Many farmers switched to the poultry industry. After quickly becoming one of the most active counties in the nation for chicken production, Tyson Foods built a large processing center in Cumming. It is still one of the biggest industries in Forsyth, even though most of the old chicken houses are now empty. [10]

1950's - The building of Buford Dam by the Army Corps of Engineers on the Chattahoochee River to form Lake Sydney Lanier helped the local economy. The dam construction brought a constant water source, hydroelectric power, and tourism. More people began building homes on the shores of the lake and made it one of the more fashionable places to live in the Atlanta area. [10]

1971 - The opening of Georgia State Route 400, allowed easy access from Atlanta to Lake Lanier and Forsyth County expanding the county's population to a point where the Forsyth County became one of the fastest growing counties in the United States. More people were moving to the rural area and commuting to Atlanta for employment. [10]

1977 - The construction for the third courthouse was completed in 1977. A new administrative office building was built across the street.[9]

1987 - A civil rights march was organized in January 1987 in Cumming. A counter-demonstration was made by the Klu Klux Klan, mostly by men who were not residents of the county. Four marchers were reported to have been slightly injured by objects thrown at them. Eight counter-protestors were arrested on charges of trespassing and carrying concealed weapons. One week later, a second march was held with over 20,000 participants from all over the country forming a caravan from Atlanta. The newly formed Forsyth County Defense League rounded up 5,000 members for a counter-protest. The demonstration was peaceful, most likely due to the presence of 2,000 peace officers and national guardsmen (many of whom were black). All paid for by the county, which angered residents of the county, since most of the marchers were not residents of Forsyth County. 66 of the counter-protestors were arrested for "parading without a permit". During the march, most of the white residents left their homes or boarded up, so the marchers walked along the streets lined by armed National Guardsmen. The demonstration is thought to have been the largest civil rights demonstration in the U.S. since about 1970. and turned out to be the largest resistance opposed to civil rights since the 1960s. [1]

2000-2010 - An influx of more ethnically diverse persons began to migrate into the county. This changed the ratio of white population to mostly Asian. [1]

2007-2013 - A severe drought occurred due to water supplies for the Atlanta area and downstream areas of Alabama and Florida were threatened. A more severe drought came in 2007 and 2008, with flooding in 2009. Flooding occurred again in 2013, followed by a severe drought in 2016. A tri-state water dispute has been in place since 1990 between Georgia, Alabama and Florida over apportionment of water flow from Lake Lanier, which forms the eastern border of the county and is regulated by the Army Corps of Engineers as a federal project.[1]

Current: Forsyth County is considered to be one of the fastest growing areas in the United States.[1]
