Buddy Powers of Mansfield, Georgia has emailed us with information relating to the naming of Mansfield Georgia. Buddy's email reads; "egend has it that Mansfield Georgia was named in the 1870's at a meeting of the local men. The meeting was called for the purpose of naming the community. The meeting had many disagreements and few decisions. A good amount of "moonshine" (corn liquor) was consumed. A decision was finally made to name the town after whichever man attending was found to be the most sober. The man's name was Mansfield (likely a man from Mansfield UK). He shortly moved away, so now there are no people by that name in the town."
