Attorney, Historian Uses Best Tool To Keep Going

You could point out nearly any property in Bleckley County and 68-year-old Lonnie Barlow likely knows who owns it.  

Barlow, a Cochran native, says he's practiced real estate law for 40 years and found his passion in the dealings and history of land ownership.  His office holds about 9,000 real estate transaction records.

"The way land is handled, who owns it, the way it's transferred and how you acquire it," said Barlow.

In the midst of researching wills, probates and transactions, the attorney found himself a hobby.

"The most wonderful thing about Bleckley County is its religious heritage. We have over 40 churches," said Barlow.

Barlow says he could tell you who owns 85 percent of Bleckley County's property and likely how it happened. 

"I like to think that I came to this office not to make money but to help people," he said.
