A 2008 estimate, however, showed the population to be 47,023. Its county seat is Forsyth.[1] The county was officially organized on January 4, 1837, and was named in honor of Roger Brooke Taney, the fifth Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, most notable for his decision in Dred Scott declaring that African Americans were not citizens of the United States (which was made after the county's incorporation).
