On August 18, 1905, Toombs County, Georgia was created from parts of Tattnall, Emanuel and Montgomery counties. Toombs is bordered on the north by Emanuel, on the northeast by Candler, on the east by Tattnall, on the southeast by Appling, on the southwest by Jeff Davis, on the west by Montgomery and on the northwest by Treutlen.

Originally Johnson, Emanuel, Toombs, Treutlen, Chandler, and Montgomery Counties were encompassed by Washington County.

There are three towns within Toombs County, these being Lyons, the county seat, Vidalia and Santa Claus. In 2000 the census for Toombs County was 26,067 with Lyons having 4,169 residents, Vidalia 10,331 residents and Santa Claus 237 residents with 11330 residents in the unincoporated areas. Unincoporated areas include Aimwell, Blue Ridge, Cedar Crossing, Center, Charles, Elton, English Eddy, Johnson's Corner, Gray's Landing, Harden's Chapel, Marvin, McNatt Falls, New Branch, Normatown, Ohoopee, Parker's, Ponderosa, Rackettown, Rock Springs, South Thompson and Toombs Central communities. See Toombs County Voting Pecincts Map

Some of the towns and communities that once existed in Toombs County: Aimwell, Aliph, Alpine, Appleton, Bandanna, Billvan, Bromley, Charles, Edna, Elton, Jenkins Station, Laff, Ozona, Parkers, Pendleton, Perrys Mills, Ponderosa, Rock Springs, Stacers, Stanleys Store, Sterling, Stonyhead, Straw and Tosh. Some of these towns can be seen on the 1910 or 1915 maps from Historical Atlas of Georgia Counties.

After the founding of Vidalia in 1890, these early towns gradually ceased to exist.

Towns in Toombs County

By the recent creation of the county of Toombs two prosperous towns have been cut off from older counties and given the new one a most excellent send-off. Vidalia has been taken from Montgomery and Lyons from Tattnall. The former had within its limits in 1900 503 citizens, but ten years later that number ran up to 1,776; while the latter had in 1900 534 and now has 927. Both these towns are in process of healthy development; in them the places of business and edifices of a public character show the thrift and industry of the people. Montgomery still holds on to her seat of justice, Mount Vernon, which ships a good amount of cotton annually, and does a large business in other produce. Its population has increased from 573 in 1900 to 605 in 1910.

    Kids Get Vidalia Flip-Flops in Iraq October 20 -- This past summer, alumni of the Leadership Toombs-Montgomery program spearheaded a local drive to collect flip-flops for kids in Iraq. Over 800 pairs of flip-flops were shipped to Fort Hood, Texas where they were added to a shipment of several thousand which had been gathered under the leadership of former Vidalians, Gary and Barbara Cluck. The flip-flops were distributed to kids like those pictured above. Mission Accomplished! Archives News Radio October 20, 2004

    Army Sgt. 1st Class Gregory F. Plains has returned to the 67th Signal Battalion at Fort Gordon, Augusta, Ga., after a deployment to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The soldier has been decorated with the Army Commendation Medal for distinguishing himself by acts of heroism, meritorious achievement or meritorious service while participating in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Operation Iraqi Freedom is the official name given to military operations involving members of the U.S. armed forces and coalition forces participating in efforts to free and secure Iraq. Mission objectives focus on force protection, peacekeeping, stabilization, security and counter-insurgency operations as the Iraqi transitional governing bodies assume full sovereign powers to govern the peoples of Iraq. Members from all branches of the U.S. military and multinational forces are also assisting in rebuilding Iraq's economic and governmental infrastructure, and training and preparing Iraqi military and security forces to assume full authority and responsibility in defending and preserving Iraq's sovereignty and independence as a democracy. Plains, a system switch chief, is the son of Delores Plain of Eagle St., and nephew of Alexander Fulton of Palm St., both of New Orleans, La. His wife, Valerie, is the daughter of Mamie N. Williams of Second Ave., Vidalia, Ga. NOTE TO THE EDITOR: The mother's name is spelled as it appears on the release form. Notes: (1.)
