Jasper County
This county was established in 1912 from portions of Beaufort and Hampton counties and is named, it is said, for Sergeant William Jasper, hero of the American Revolution. The same act establishing the new county also designated Ridgeland (incorporated 1894) as the county seat. Charles E. Perry, John M. Langford. J.H. Woods, J.P. Wise and Rodger Pinckney were first county commissioners.
