Marion County History

            Marion County was formed in 1817 from Indian Lands.  It was named for the Swamp Fox, Francis Marion.  The first court was held in Cheekville, until an Indian named Betsy Pack donated the present site of Jasper.  

            Sequatchie County was formed from Bledsoe County and the 1st three districts of Marion County in 1854.
