Welcome to the Chattahoochee County GAGen Web Project
Page. My name is Kemis Massey and I am the county coordinator for this site. That means I do the web
pages and try to point you in the direction for you to do your family research. I am not a genealogist,
only someone looking for their roots and sharing the clues as I go. In order for a site to be truly
helpful it needs several things. A good history of the community will help you understand your ancestors
joys and sorrows. So if you have any books, photos, stories of family history on Chattahoochee County,
please share it with the rest of us. Besides you never know what relative is looking for you.

Chattahoochee County, named for the Chattahoochee River that forms the county's western
border, was created 14 February 1854 from parts of Marion and Muscogee
Counties. Cusseta, the county seat, was incorporated on December 22, 1855.
The county courthouse, in Cusseta, was constructed in 1854, and is listed on the
National Register of Historic Places. Chattahoochee County is home to the Fort Benning
Military Reservation, which was founded at the beginning of the first World War, and was
named for General Henry Lewis Benning, a Confederate general.
