This County, created by Act of the Legislature July 27, 1914, is named for Augustus O. Bacon, four times U.S. Senator, who died in office Feb. 15, 1914.

Taylor, Clerk of Superior Court Victor Deen, Sheriff J.W. Googe, Tax Collector J.N. Johnson, Tax Receiver L.W. Hutto, Treasurer J.G. Barber, Surveyor J.W. Medders and Coroner W.H. Lewis.
