The county was
organized Feb. 14, 1845, (from St. Clair County on the north and Dade County
on the south) and was given the name of Cedar. With all of the counties in the
surrounding areas being named for prominent state or national figures, one
might wonder why a county would be named for a creek which had received its
name for the evergreen trees which grew in abundance nearby. The theory
has been advanced that the name Cedar carried no controversial issue in the
political history of the country, and thus was agreeable to all concerned.
The original county seat was called Lancaster. In 1847 the names was changed
to Fremont, in honor of the "Pathfinder", but in 1856 Gen. Fremont became the
Republican candidate for President, and the following winter the Democratic
Legislature changed the name to Stockton, in honor of Commodore Richard
Stockton, of the navy, who had arrested Fremont during the Mexican War, and
sought to have him disgraced.
According to the 2000, Census Cedar County has a population of 13,733 residents.
