Edgefield County, South Carolina, Deed Book 41


The eleventh volume in this series of deed book abstracts is particularly useful to genealogists because the documents were recorded in 1825 and 1826, midway between the 1820 and 1830 censuses. 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, slaves, previous spouses, kinship, etc. These pages contain deeds of trust, depositions, mortgages, prenuptial and business contracts, sheriff sales and sales of undivided estates, survey plats, deeds of gift, proof of heirship, property locations identified by names of watercourses and adjoining landowners, releases of dower, bills of sale, and the names of witnesses, guardians, and county officials. The deeds are presented in original page number order with a full name index.
