History

Marshall county was formerly a part of the Chickasaw Nation and is said to have been named in honor of Chief Justice John Marshall who gave the noted decision in the cases resulting from the state of Georgia extending its laws over certain Indian reservations within its borders, in which he held "the Indian Nation have rights, with which no state can interfere." This was in 1832. It has an area of approximately 450 square miles of which about twenty per cent is still covered with timber and there are a number of saw mills in operation. The county borders on the Red river and its Boil consists largely of alluvial lands. Cotton, corn, potatoes and fruits are the chief products.
