Coweta Co., GA Records for Genealogists

Creek Indians ceded the land in the counties of Lee, Muscogee, Troup, Coweta, and Carroll counties in the 1825 Treaty of Indian Springs. Chief McIntosh was murdered by members of his own tribe because of it. The boundaries for the county were created by the Georgia General Assembly on June 9, 1826, but they were not named until December 14, 1826. Coweta County was named for the Koweta Indians (a sub-group of the Creek people), who had several towns in and around present day Coweta. Researchers should also research Henry, Fayette and Spalding Counties.
