    The county, formed in 1842 from Lin­coln County, was named for the Catawba River. The word "catawba" is rooted in the Choctaw sound kat'a pa, loosely trans­lated as "to di­vide or sep­a­rate, to break." How­ever, schol­ars are fairly cer­tain that this word was im­posed from outside. The Na­tive Amer­i­cans known as the Catawba peo­ple, a tribe of in­dige­nous peo­ple who once in­hab­ited the re­gion, were con­sid­ered one of the most pow­er­ful South­east­ern Siouan-speak­ing tribes in the Car­olina Pied­mont. They now live along the bor­der of North Car­olina near the city of Rock Hill, South Car­olina. Ger­man and Scots-Irish colo­nial im­mi­grants first set­tled in the Catawba River val­ley in the mid-18th cen­tury. An of­fi­cial his­tory of the Ger­man and Scots-Irish set­tle­ment was doc­u­mented in 1954 by Charles J. Pres­lar, Jr, and more re­cently by a se­ries of three books by Gary Freeze, called The Cataw­bans.
