Regarding Echols County. Statenville, the county seat (spelled "Statesville" in the enabling act) is unusual in that it has zero population. In 1958 a bill passed by the General Assembly restricted the city limits to the courthouse square, so the 500 or so people who lived in the town are now residents of the county only.
