Overview

With the removal of the Indians in 1814 by Andrew Jackson and his men, settlers began to migrate to the fertile Cahawba land that later became Bibb County, Alabama, even before the Federal survey of the land was completed. By 1818, the area had 1280 residents and two years later, the population was 3876. Usually members of a family such as sons and fathers, preceded the rest of the family by a year or more. They cleared land and built crude cabins for their families and sometimes they even planted the first crop. Then the settlers returned to their homeland to transport their families. Many times, close neighbors in the homeland traveled together and when they arrived in Alabama, they located their farms close to each other and small settlements developed in Cahawba.

Small communities were generally farm clearings and were often named according to the location near a river, creek or the name of the family who predominated in the area. Churches and schools appeared early in 1817. By 1830, Bibb County's population reached 6306 with lawyers, physicians, tradesman, architects, contractors, blacksmiths, wagon builders, millers, flatboat captains, peddlers, surveyors, ministers and many farmers according to the census.
