Edgefield County, South Carolina, Deed Books 36, 37 and 38


Here is the latest in this useful series of deed book abstracts. In addition to the names, dates and land descriptions one would expect to find in such records, these deed abstracts also reveal names of children and neighbors, ties to other areas, clues to family wealth (or lack of), names of wives, mothers, witnesses, slaves, previous spouses, kinship, etc. Occasionally deeds were written many years before they were recorded. A few chains of title date back to grants made in the 1730s. Recorded between 1819 and 1822, the deeds are presented in original page number order with a full name index.
