Biographies of Pulaski County Georgia

Biographies of Pulaski County Georgia: The following collection consists of 104 biographies of Pulaski County Georgia. These persons were either born and raised in Pulaski County or settled the county at an early date in it’s history (pre 1900). They consist of men in the County of Pulaski, who were considered by the author to be the religious, business, governmental, professional, and agricultural leaders of the various communities in Racine. Sometimes they were included simply because they “subscribed” to the manuscript prior to publication.

Pulaski County is not one of the largest counties of the State, but it takes just pride in the men and women it has given to the world. Hawkinsville has furnished Macon and Atlanta, as well as other cities, such a noticeably large number of “leading citizens” that outsiders are sometimes said to wonder if there can be any good people left in the county. As an outsider sojourning here for the past seven years, I am in position to testify that, instead of giving out all of her “leading citizens,” she kept her best at home. Never have I known a higher type of citizenry, a kindlier people, or a nobler strain of native American stock.

The aid of the Federal Government in the long and arduous task of writing this history is hereby gratefully acknowledged, together with our thanks to Mrs. Grace Watson, through whose kindly offices this invaluable assistance was secured, without which it would have been impossible.

The people of the entire county, and, no doubt, all who in the years to come have occasion to read these pages, will feel a deep sense of gratitude to the local chapter of the Daughters of the Ameri¬≠can Revolution, which is publishing this history. Probably at no time in the entire history of the county could there have been found three women so well qualified as exponents of Pulaski’s personality; charm, and culture as the editor, Mrs. T. H. Bridges, and her asso¬≠ciates, Mrs. Leonard Atkinson and Miss Carolyn Jordan. Together with these qualities is found an indomitable initiative in the person of Mrs. N. A. Jelks, Regent of the D. A. R. Chapter, and prime mover in the publication of this history. To these noble women Pulaski Countians from now until the end of civilized time will be indebted for the valuable records herein contained.

Rev. J. L. Baggott, 1935
