Jones County, carved from Baldwin County in 1807, recognizes James Jones, a Savannah attorney. At 23, Jones began his service in the state legislature and later attended the state constitutional convention of 1798. Gray, the county seat, is named for a family promi­nent among the region's early settlers.
