Cherokee County Information
The county was settled in 1846 and the population estimated at 50,845 as of the 2010 census. The county seat is Rusk, and Jacksonville is the largest community. The total area of the county is 1,062 square miles. It is named for the Cherokee, who lived in the area before being expelled in 1839.
The Cherokee, Delaware, Shawnee, and Kickapoo Native American peoples began settling in the area circa 1820. The Texas Cherokee tried unsuccessfully to gain a grant to their own land from the Mexican government.
Sam Houston, adopted son of Chief Oolooteka (John Jolly) of the Cherokee, negotiated the January 14, 1836, treaty between Chief Bowl of the Cherokee and the Republic of Texas. On December 16, 1837, the Texas Senate declared the treaty null and void, and encroachment of Cherokee lands continued. On October 5, 1838, Indians massacred members of the Isaac Killough family at their farm northwest of the site of present Jacksonville, leading to the Cherokee War of 1839 and the expulsion of all Indians from the land which was to become the county of Cherokee.
