 The U S Genweb Project
        Formed in 1832 from Cherokee County, which had been formed from the Cherokee Nation East only a year before.
Lying in the gold belt, all the lots in Forsyth County were 40 acre lots.  Forsyth consisted of Districts 1, 2, 3 and 14 of the First Section of Cherokee County.
  It was named for John Forsyth.  The County Seat is Cumming.  In 1856, Milton County was created from part of Forsyth County.
