Autauga County AL

Autauga County, located in the state of Alabama, was officially established on November 21, 1818, from a portion of Montgomery County, following the end of Creek War and the subsequent cession of Creek lands to the United States. It is part of the Montgomery Metropolitan Statistical Area. The county’s geography is marked by the Alabama River, which bisects it from northeast to southwest, playing a significant role in its development and settlement patterns. Autauga County’s early population included Creek tribes, particularly in the fertile river valleys, before European-American settlement intensified in the early 19th century. The county seat, Prattville, known as “The Fountain City,” was founded by industrialist Daniel Pratt in 1839, becoming a center for manufacturing. Genealogical researchers will find records dating back to the county’s establishment, including census data, marriage, land, and probate records, which are essential for tracing lineage and understanding the historical context of ancestors’ lives in this region.

Native American History of Autauga County, Alabama

It is not known for certain which ethnic group built the many towns with mounds in Autauga County. One possibility is that a branch of the Choctaws lived there, since a swamp in the western part of the county had a Choctaw name, Conchapita. Alternatively, they may have been related to the Alabama Indians who occupied the region in the late 1600s and most of the 18th century. Most of the Alabama’s left with the French in 1763 after France lost the Seven Years War with Great Britain. Members of the Creek Confederacy then moved into the region and absorbed the remaining Alabamas.
