Paulding County Sheriffs Throughout History
The following is a list of all of the Sheriffs that have held office in Paulding County as outlined in Paulding County; Its People and Places.  In some situations only a last name is present; in others, there were several Sheriffs in a particular year.  As a result of poor record keeping, things getting lost during the Civil War, disease, and unexpected death this is the best list we have been able to uncover.  If you have additional or more clarified information, please contact the Paulding County Sheriff's Office by emailing the webmaster.
