There are currently 3142 county and county equivalents (parishes in Louisiana, boroughs in Alaska and independent cities in Virginia). One item on my personal bucket list is to visit every single county. I have currently been to 2444 counties - about 78%.

This thread is to inform gas buddies about the US counties and provide a forum for others to comment on or to post about these counties.

Cobb County is a suburban county located in the U.S. state of Georgia. As of the 2010 census, the population was 688,078, making it the fourth-most populous county in Georgia. Its county seat and largest city is Marietta.

Cobb, along with several adjoining counties, was created on December 3, 1832, by the Georgia General Assembly from the huge Cherokee "county" territory — land northwest of the Chattahoochee River which the state confiscated from the Cherokee Nation and redistributed to settlers via lottery, following the passage of the federal Indian Removal Act. The county was named for Thomas Willis Cobb, a United States representative and senator from Georgia. It is believed that Marietta was named for his wife, Mary.

The U.S. Census Bureau ranks Cobb County as the most-educated in the state of Georgia and 12th among all counties in the United States. It has ranked among the top 100 wealthiest counties in the United States.

Chatham county is my favorite county in Georgia because it is the most like South Carolina and because Paula Deen lives there. Its most famous landmark is the Garden of Good and Evil. General Sherman marched into the sea there and his matches got too wet to burn it down like Atlanta. Johnny Mercer was a famous son who wrote the lyrics to many famous songs like Moon River and I Lost My Sugar in Salt Lake City.
