History of Old Pendleton District (South Carolina) with a Genealogy of the Leading Families - R W Simpson. The Pendleton District in northwestern South Carolina has a complex history. It was originally part of the Cherokee Indian lands which were divided in 1789 to create Pendleton and Greenville Counties. The name was subsequently changed to Pendleton District and it finally ceased to exist as a political unit about 1825 when it was subdivided to form the present Anderson and Pickens Counties. This volume provides a brief, seventy-page history of the region followed by hundreds of genealogical sketches of district families. The genealogies are generally lacking in vital statistics, but nevertheless provide a wealth of genealogical data. A full name index adds to the value of this book.
