Edgefield County, South Carolina Minutes of the County Court, 1785-1795
These court minutes are the earliest extant records from this crucial South Carolina county. Many persons left Edgefield and migrated across the Savannah River into Georgia and other states west. In these records are listings of more than 175 early deeds which cannot now be located! This makes these probably the MOST VALUABLE court minutes in all of South Carolina. Also Edgefield was one of the largest counties in South Carolina at the time, comprising all or part of the present counties of Edgefield, Saluda, Aiken, Greenwood, and McCormick.
