Jasper County, Georgia
Jasper County is a county located in the U.S. state of Georgia. The 2005 Census Estimate shows a population of 13,147. The county seat is Monticello.
The County was created on December 10, 1807, by an act of the Georgia General Assembly with land that was originally part of Baldwin County, Georgia.
Jasper County was originally named Randolph County (after Virginian John Randolph). Because of Randolph's opposition to U.S. entry into the War of 1812, the General Assembly changed the name of Randolph County to Jasper County on December 10, 1812 to honor Sergeant William Jasper, an American Revolutionary War hero. However, Randolph's reputation eventually was restored, and in 1828, the General Assembly created a new Randolph County.
