Pioneer Settlers Application
Our DeKalb County ancestors made it happen.
Some traveled many rough miles to get here while others were born in DeKalb County. They cleared the land, built roads and houses, planted and harvested the first crops.
If your direct descendant lived in DeKalb County prior to December 31, 1850, you may apply for a Pioneer Certificate.
