Crisp County, located in the area between the Flint and Ocmulgee rivers, was created in 1905 from Dooley County. This interesting and informative book is particularly abundant in genealogical material, containing lists of recipients of land grants, family sketches and genealogies, and a DAR roster listing ancestors of members. The family sketches include Pate, Lewis, Webb-Clark-Raines, Culpepper, Hamilton, Woodard, Sutton, Bowen, Williams, Fleming, Atkins and Sheppard. Genealogical facts are also found in the general history of the county, along with anecdotes and statistical material. A new index was prepared for this reprint edition.
