Jeff Davis County was
created in 1905 form parts of Appling and Coffee counties. Georgia's
140th county was named for Jefferson Davis, President of the
Confederacy. Davis had served as the U.S. Secretary of War prior to
the Civil War.
The county has two
municipalities: Hazlehurst, the largest and the county seat, and
Denton. Hazlehurst was named for Colonel George Hazlehurst, a civil
engineer who surveyed the Macon & Brunswick Railroad. In August of
1995, Hazlehurst celebrated its "Censilver," 150 years of existence.
