Deep Ties to the Area:
Bob has a strong connection to Bulloch County. Bob's direct ancestors, including Barnet Mikell and his son James Mikell, a revolutionary war veteran, first settled in what is now Bulloch County in 1784. In 1795, a petition was presented to the State of Georgia requesting that Bulloch County be created. The petition had 122 signatures, eight of which were Mikells, including Bob's direct ancestors Barnet Mikell and James Mikell. John Mikell, Jr., Barnet’s nephew and James’ cousin, was one of three men appointed as the first county commissioners to fix a proper place for a courthouse and jail. The spot picked was the site of the present Bulloch County Courthouse. From the founding of the county to the present, nine generations of Mikells have served in the legal, agricultural, and financial sectors of the local economy.
Ernest Mikell was a local banker at Sea Island Bank during the 1920's.
Bob's Great Grandfather, H.W. Mikell, pictured here in 1913 in Triangle Park in downtown Statesboro, was a local farmer.
The Hon. R.P. "Bob" Mikell served as the Bulloch County Ordinary (Probate Judge) from 1956-1972.
