Paulding County Records

Paulding County Court HouseLeft: Paulding County Court House. Dallas Depot
The old Dallas, Georgia Depot. Paulding County was created from Cherokee County. The Creeks, but mostly Cherokees resided in this territory, Raccoon Creek and other waters finding many arrows and flints. In 1833 when Archibald Holland removed to Paulding County a family of Cherokees having six children resided along the 10-Mile Run near Raccoon Creek. Nearby huge mounds. The story goes that when they left to go to Oklahoma, they buried a black iron pot of gold or silver in this creek. The county was named after John Paulding, one of the men who captured the British spy Major Andre during the American Revolution. The county was named in his honor in 1832. Major Andre was Benedict Arnold's accomplice. With the removal of the Creek in 1825 after Chief William McIntosh signed the Treaty of Indian Springs only Cherokee remained and it was distributed in 160 acre lots in the Lottery of 1832, although a portion in the northeast corner was distributed as the smaller 40 acre gold lots. On December 3, 1832, the county was recognized by the Georgia Legislature. Paulding was formed from Cherokee County in 1832. 

Maps were scanned in such a manner as to provide details for locating creeks, branches, rivers, lakes, churches, schools and cemeteries. This will enable you to better locate the old homeplace using the description from old non-specific deeds. Also, a convenience in locating both private and public cemeteries in the area.
