Kershaw County, South Carolina Minutes of the County Court, 1791-1799 - Brent H. Holcomb. "Kershaw County was formed in 1791 from the counties of Fairfield, Lancaster and Richland. Therefore, prior to 1791, the county records of those counties should be researched for persons who appear in the county court minutes herein." These records are typical county court minutes, containing lists of jurors, wills and administrations, guardian bonds, and road commissioners, as well as, minor civil cases. Of particular interest to genealogists are the many entries pertaining to orphans, wills, estates, etc. that provide vital clues and establish relationships. A full name index, prepared by Mrs. Katherine Hester, adds to the value of this work.
