Clinch County

Clinch County land had been part of Lowndes and Ware counties until 1850. It was named for General Duncan Clinch who is credited with the defeat of Seminole Chief Osceola and who later served as a congressman from Georgia. The original county seat, Magnolia, has vanished from record. Homerville, the present seat of government, takes its name from Dr. John Homer Mattox who had helped lay out the town.
