Telfair County Records
Pictured is Telfair County Court House and Alligator Creek. Telfair County was created from Wilkinson County by an act of the General Assembly approved Dec. 10, 1807 and was named for former governor and congressman Edward Telfair (1735-1807). In 1812, the legislature transferred the portion of Telfair County between the Oconee and Little Ocmulgee rivers to Montgomery County. In 1819 and 1825, the legislature transferred respectively land lots 1 and 6 in Appling County to Telfair County. As a result, Telfair included land south of the Ocmulgee River until 1854 when the legislature transferred this area to Coffee County. The county seat is McRae, Georgia. Early Settlers: George Browning, Barnabus Livingston, Mitchell Wilcox.
