Telfair County was created from Wilkinson County by an act of the General Assembly approved Dec. 10, 1807 and was named for former governor and congressman Edward Telfair (1735-1807). In 1812, the legislature transferred the portion of Telfair County between the Oconee and Little Ocmulgee rivers to Montgomery County. In 1819 and 1825, the legislature transferred respectively land lots 1 and 6 in Appling County to Telfair County. As a result, Telfair included land south of the Ocmulgee River until 1854 when the legislature transferred this area to Coffee County. The county seat is McRae, Georgia.
