Chambers County, Alabama ALGenWeb is part of the ALGenWeb and USGenWeb Projects. Chambers County was created by an act of the Alabama General Assembly on 1832 Dec. 18, from Creek Nation territory. It is located in the east-central portion of the state, and is bounded on the east by the Chattahoochee River. The county is named for Henry Chambers, a U.S. Senator from Alabama (1825-26). The location of the county seat was selected in 1833 and the town of LaFayette was built specifically for that purpose. Authorities: Acts 1831-32, p.9. Owen, Thomas McAdory. History of Alabama and Dictionary of Alabama Biography. Chicago: S.J. Clarke Publishing Co., 1921. The treaty with the Creeks stipulated that the head of each Indian family was to receive 320 acres of land and the chiefs 640 acres. Most of the Indian land ended up in the hands of white land speculators. Most of the Indians were forced out of Chambers County after the Creek War of 1836-1837. Some of them ended up in Randolph, Macon, Tallapoosa or Talladega counties for a short while, before finally giving up and heading further west. Some of the Indians managed to stay in Alabama by denying their Indian blood, claiming to be Black Dutch or Melungeun.
