Patricia, Just a guess. Maybe Gordon County?
In 1850 a new county, called Gordon, was fromed from districts of Cass. In 1852 more was added to Gordon county.
Gordon county and Adairsville just something like ten, twelve miles apart, if that. Also in the immediate area and Quoting from History of Bartow Co.: About 5 miles north of the present Adairsville site was Oothcalooga Village. The name was taken from the Indian name of the stream that runs through the valley. Here lived the petty chiefs of the village. White in his "Historical Collections" states, "Oothcaloga was the residence of the Adairs. It was sparsely inhabited but the Indians here lived better than in any other part of the nation."
If I can be helpful with the book 'History of Bartow County, Georgia, Formerly Cass', I will be glad to look.
