Lamar County was formed February of 1867 from Marion, Fayette, and Pickens counties and named Jones County, in honor of E.P. Jones of Fayette County. In November of the same year, the county was abolished, but was recreated in October 1868 as Sanford County. The name was changed to Lamar County in 1877 to honor Senator L.T.C. Lamar of MS, who was born in GA.
