Muscogee County was created in 1826 from lands ceded by the Creek Indians. It lies on the western boundary of the state boarding Alabama along the Chattahoochee River. The Superior Court of the county had jurisdiction over all criminal matters, civil cases involving title to land, appeals from Inferior Court decisions and Justice’s Courts, divorces, grand juries, naturalizations, and registration of land deeds.
