Chilton County Maps

This is a very brief description of the some of the boundaries that affect Chilton County,Al genealogists. Before 1828 everything East of the Cossa River to the Ga. line was Indian lands but by 1831 St. Clair, Shelby and Montgomery Counties extended to the Georgia line. By 1832 Alabama started to show some of the shape it has today with counties across the state that have changed many times.

The website has a fantastic county formation web page that can be interactively stepped through the years.
