Randolph and Campbell Counties Created

Gov. John Forsyth signed legislation creating Randolph and Campbell counties. Randolph County, Georgia’s 75th, was created from portions of Lee County and named for John Randolph of Virginia. Campbell County, Georgia’s 76th, was created from portions of Carroll, Coweta, DeKalb, and Fayette counties and named for Duncan Campbell, who was an early proponent of female education in Georgia. Campbell County merged with Fulton County by an act of Aug. 9, 1929 that became effective Jan. 1, 1932
