Upson County came into being in 1824, its lands taken from parts of Pike and Crawford counties. Its name honors Stephen Upson, a lawyer and legislator of renown during the antebellum period. Thomaston, the county seat, is named for General Jett Thomas, leader of the state mili­tia in 1812 and builder of the state capitol at Milledgeville.
