Twiggs County

Twiggs County was created in 1809 from land formerly in Wilkinson County. It is named for General John Twiggs, a Revolutionary War figure. Jeffersonville, the county seat, is named for a family of early settlers. An unusual sand/clay mix of soil was the bane of farmers there, but when recognized, it gave birth to a thriving kaolin industry.
