This history of Pike County, although a relatively small volume, is rich in genealogical material, containing as it does lists of members of lodges and organizations, county officials, war records for the Mexican War, Civil War, and World Wars I and II. An every-name index prepared for this edition makes this information readily available. The general history of the county is discussed by decade from the 1820s to the 1860s, and also under topical headings: Georgia Indians and Their Relation to the Growth of Counties; Pike County in Her Babyhood; Pike from Reconstruction to Centennial; Town and Community Histories; Pike County's Religous, Educational, Professional, Literary, and Industrial Developments; and Miscellanies and Statistics. A "Supplement to Pike County History" brings the industrial developments, political records, and war records up to 1947.
