Happy Birthday! Jasper County just turned 100 years old. Jasper County, after years of petition, was carved from Beaufort and Hampton Counties on January 30, 1912 and became South Carolina's 44th of 46 counties at 1:55pm.
Here is a transcription of the Beaufort Gazette newspaper item "Jaspar [sic], New Baby County."
