Bleckley County is named for Chief Justice Logan E. Bleckley of the Georgia Supreme Court. Made a county in 1912, Bleckley pulled its terri­tory from Pulaski County. The name of the county seat, Cochran, is a tribute to the president of the Macon & Brunswick Railroad, Arthur E. Cochran, who is credited with leading development in the area.
