Cobb County was one of the 24 created from Cherokee Indian territory in 1832. It is named for Judge Thomas W. Cobb, a former U. S. senator. Marietta, the county seat, is named for his wife. In frontier days, the Chattahoochee River which forms Cobb's southeast boundary, was the dividing line between Creek and Cherokee Indian territories.
