The Chickasaw Indians lived in this area early on. By 1818, most of them had been forced out of the state. In 1852, J. M. Daniel, a civil engineer from Richmond, Virginia, was employed to survey the area for a road. Near a railroad crossing, he marked a large oak tree with red chalk - Union City - (the name given to him by a General Gibbs) thus naming the future town.
