Named in honor of Major General Baron Johan DeKalb, a hero of the American Revolution. Its county seat is Fort Payne.  Created by the Alabama legislature on January 9, 1836, from land ceded to the Federal government by the Cherokee Nation. DeKalb County was the one time home of the famous Cherokee Sequoyah.  [Source: wikipedia.org].
