History of Lincoln County, Georgia
By: Clinton J. Perryman, Pub. 1933, reprinted 2021, 224 pages, Index, ISBN #978-1-63914-005-3.
Lincoln County was created 1796 from Wilkes County. This book is not too different from other county history books of this era. With such topics as formation of county, trade and transportation, labor, farming, religion, towns and involvement in Revolutionary & Civil War - all important in the development of the county - are carefully discussed. This type of county history book can help one develop ideas or paths to those missing ancestors by showing the customs and traditions of the local residents. A particular useful feature of this book is the extensive biographical information included. Almost a third of this book is devoted to biographical sketches for: Ashmore (2), Boykin, Clarke, Crawford (2), Curry, Dooly (3), Dunaway, Florence, Hogan (3), Hudson, Humphreys, Lamar (2), Lyon, Murray, Perryman, Smalley, Strother, Tutt, Ward, Ware and Zellars.
