Dooly County

Dooly County was one of the original land lot counties but was divided to create Crisp and parts of Macon, Pulaski, Wilcox, Turner and Worth counties. It was designated in 1821 and named for Colonel John Dooly, a neighbor of the famed woman Patriot, Nancy Hart. Dooly had prosecuted -- and likely persecuted ~ Tories during the Revolutionary War. He was murdered by Tories in his home in 1780. Founders gave the county seat the name of the Austrian city, Vienna.
