When Marion County was created in 1817 there were "reservations" of land held by certain prominent Cherokees. These remained under the jurisdiction of the Cherokee Nation. There is an explanation of this in the book "Sequatchie" by Raulston and Livingood. The land which is on the south side of the TN River but now in Marion County was not added to the county until after the Cherokee removal of 1838. Until then it was part of the Cherokee Nation.
