DONATE YOUR DATA!
We welcome any information you may wish to provide
for the free research of others.
So, dust off those old scrapbooks you have in your attic, dig out those old newspapers, or anything else you feel
is of interest to this County, and send them our way. We are looking for obituaries, newspaper stories, biographies,
Birth, Death and Marriage records, as well as interesting newspaper tidbits from years gone past - the items YOU
used to put together your family trees. If you have information that you'd like to share with us on the history
of this county and its people, please SEND IT TO US and we'll make sure it gets posted online.
We regret that we are
unable to perform personal research for you.
All data we come across is added
to this site, so please keep checking back!
Originally established as Toombs County on March 8, 1858, it was named after Robert Toombs (1810-85) of Georgia,
who had been a member of Congress, 1845-53, and was U.S. senator, 1853-61. Mr. Toombs became a leading disunionist,
then a Confederate secretary of state in 1861, and later was a Confederate general. In 1863, the county was renamed
Andy Jackson County after President Andrew Jackson and to disassociate with Mr. Toombs. The county changed its
name to Wilkin County, for Col. Alexander Wilkin, who was killed in the Civil War, in March 6, 1868.
