Injury in Cherokee County
Cherokee County is considered a suburb of Atlanta and is included in the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta, Georgia metropolitan area. The estimated population for Cherokee County is currently upwards of 214,000 and the county seat is the city of Canton. Cherokee County started out as a territory, covering everything northwest of the Chattahoochee River and Chestatee River, except for Carroll County. Cherokee County was not created until December 26, 1831 by the state legislative act. The county was named after the Cherokee Indians who lived in the area at the time. Numerous other counties were later carved out of these Cherokee indian lands as part of the Cherokee Land Lottery in 1832. The Georgia General Assembly passed an act on December 3, 1832 that created the counties of Forsyth, Lumpkin, Union, Cobb, Gilmer, Murray, Bartow, Floyd and Paulding.
