Walker County

History

In the Appalachian Ridge and Valley Region of Georgia, Walker County was formed in 1833 from Murray County. Its county seat, Lafayette, is on US-27 about 100 miles northwest of Atlanta and 25 miles south of Chattanooga, TN. Walker is bordered by the Georgia counties of Dade, Catoosa, Whitfield, Gordon and Chattooga, the Alabama county of DeKalb, and the Tennessee county of Hamilton.

Walker Co., GA Marriages from USGenWeb Archives

Note by Warren Culpepper: It appears that quite a few people who resided elsewhere married in Walker Co., GA. I recall that during the 1950's and 1960's, Ringgold, GA (in adjacent Catoosa County) was a destination for many teenage couples from Alabama and Tennessee who "ran off" to marry without their parents permission. So perhaps, Walker County was also such a destination. If so, it is also possible that some of the ages below were exaggerated in order to secure a marriage license.
