Newspaper abstracts can be extremely helpful sources of genealogical data, especially where and when civil records were not kept with diligence. The "Observer" was a Presbyterian newspaper which published denominational news, and marriage and death notices from a wide area. Although the bulk of the notices pertain to South Carolina, many relate to North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama.288 pages, 5.5x8.5, (1980), 2008, 5.5x8.5, paper, index, 288 pp, Softcover, Heritage Books, Inc View more info

Fishing Creek Presbyterian Church was organized about 1770. Rev. John Simpson (1740-1808) was ordained and installed as pastor in 1774; he served the church until 1790 when he removed to Pendleton District, South Carolina. Rev.

Although these abstracted deeds were recorded from 1798 to 1800, the years in which they were written stretch from the 1760s. Many chains of title reach back to the 1750s and may tell of land sold, disputed and inherited; they name heirs, kinfolk of other surnames, remarriages, residences in different states and counties, and may state exact or approximate dates of arrivals, departures, deaths and marriages. Edgefield then included parts of present Aiken, Greenwood, McCormick and Saluda Counties. Much commerce across the Savannah River with businessmen and planters in several Georgia counties ...

By the end of the 18th century, Edgefield County veterans of the American Revolution were becoming the older generation. Changes surrounded them. The cotton gin gave a profitable crop to the South and strengthened the once-fading institution of slavery. Prices of slaves and land rose. Large holdings were divided into farms. There was much traffic across the Savannah River with Augusta, Georgia. Deed books concern land conveyances but also contain powers of attorney, depositions, bills of sale and other documents. Occasionally, deeds explain family relationships. Chains of titles may show why l... View more info

Probate records are sworn documents that go beyond the will to show how the estate was settled. These records offer insight even when persons left no will. They may reveal names, relationships, date of death, items being sold, names of buyers, final distribution, money due to the estate, and more. Probate records are especially valuable for researchers in the difficult field of black genealogy. Slave names may be traced from estate to estate.
