Worth County was created in 1852 from the territory of Dooly and Irwin Counties. 

The men appointed to layoff the county and established its boundaries were Jonathan Smith of Irwin County and Elijah B. Pate of Dooly County. 

The records of Worth County were burned, but we find many pioneer citizens of Turner County's territory were prominent in all political and civil affairs. 

Daniel Henderson, Lott Whiddon, the Davis family. the Story family, the Fillyaw family, the Hobby family, were all prominent and served in various positions of trust and honor until the creation of Turner County. Col. Andrew J. Davis was Judge of the County Court of Worth at the creation of Turner County.
