Carroll County History

Carroll County, Mississippi was established by legislative act in 1833, and named for Charles G. Carroll of Carrollton, Maryland, one of the immortal signers of the Declaration of Independence. It was carved out of a part of the territory ceded by the Choctaw Indians to the United States by the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek in 1830. As originally established, it embraced territory more than twice its present size. It extended on the north three miles farther than now, and reached some five miles east of the present city of Winona (now in Montgomery County). On the west it was bounded by the Tallahatchie and Yazoo rivers. The southern boundary was as at present, but then extended from the Yazoo to Big Black River. (more history...)
