1. Seminole County Marker
Inscription. This County, created by Act of the Legislature July 8, 1920, is named for the Seminole Indians. Members of the Creek Confederacy, the Seminoles (meaning “separatist”) left the main body in Georgia and settled in Florida. After two bloody wars in 1817-18 and 1835-42, under Osceola, the majority were moved to western reservations but several hundred escaped to the Everglades where the tribe still dwells. Among the first County Officers were: Sheriff J. M. Richardson, Clerk of Superior Court C. L. Reynolds, Ordinary J. H. Goodwin, Tax Collector W. O. Hodges, Treasurer R. T. Bolton, Coroner Jessie E. Yates and Surveyor W. H. Hickson.
