County History:   

Mobile acquired its name from Maubilla, one of the original indigenous tribes that inhabited the area that was later owned by the French, the British in 1763 and the Spanish during the Revolutionary War.  Spain ceded the area to the US after the War of 1812.  And in 1830, the US began forcing the Native Americans west.   Fortunately, several tribes reorganized and are now recognized by the state.
