In the 18th and early 19th centuries, the Cherokee Nation inhabited the area that would later become Walker County. The removal of the Cherokee by the federal government and the Georgia Land Lottery of 1832 opened the area to white settlement. Spencer Marsh moved his family to LaFayette circa 1835 from Newton County, Georgia, and became one of the pioneers of the county.
