South Carolina Books

****   ****   ****   ****   ****

 
HI!  Here are the South Carolina Books we have in stock.

When we get these assorted books from our customers, libraries and private collections, we take them all and we do our best to get a fair return for their owners on a huge investment that someone made in order to further their genealogical knowledge of their ancestors.  The books, although for the most part are no longer new, still retain their function which is to be of use in pursuing those elusive  family members that have not yet been ferreted out by our previous efforts.  Somewhere there is a book or periodical or tape with what we need to find to make progress on that lineage chart.  All we have to do is find it!

 

Somebody asked me the other day how we got into the business of running a bookstore for genealogy books and other items.  We never actually planned to run a shop until three years after Ray retired from the 20 years, 9 months and 17 days of his career in the U. S. Army, which included two years in Korea, 2 years in Vietnam and twelve years in Germany.  But it started when he first retired.  This is how!

After his first forty-hours-a-week job in over twenty years he came home and asked me, “What do civilians DO with all their spare time?”  I thought about it a minute and then told him, “They watch ball games on TV, they golf, they fish, they get a hobby.  Charles, my brother, who worked second shift at Western Electric as a tool and die maker, built and remodeled houses in his spare time and was a volunteer fireman.  My Dad, who was the engineer in charge of all the drills, taps, and reamers in Plant Five of Allison’s huge airplane engine factory on the west side of Indianapolis, built almost every house I had ever lived in here in Indiana and he was a volunteer fireman, and farmed fifty acres in his spare time.  My mother was a “crafty person” with her love of beauty and all things that could be made at home.  She always had a new project going; (whatever was popular and trendy that year) but her life-long favorite was in pouring liquid clay into molds, firing, glazing and/or painting fine ceramics.  My older brother, Bud, helped Mom with her ceramics, specialized in lace-covered figurines, grew iris and daylilies (hundreds of them) in his and my yards and worked on the family genealogy.  All of us lived within walking distance of each other on our farm or across the street on my aunt and uncle’s farm!

Ray always had liked reading, especially mysteries and histories and playing any kind of puzzle solving games, so he was a natural for genealogy. 

The Van Treese Family Reunion was the next Sunday and my brother, Bud, had brought a lot of the material he had collected to share with other members of the family.  Bud had been collecting genealogy since his Sophomore English Teacher had assigned a family history project to her class. Ray spent the entire afternoon in the tent with Bud asking questions! 

The next Sunday was the Gooldy Family Reunion, so we took blank family group sheets and lineage charts to fill out while we were there.  While we were asking family history questions, his favorite aunt, said to him, “Where did you and your brothers play when you were little boys?  He grinned and said, “In the graveyard next door, it was a great place for Cowboys and Indians and Cops & Robbers!”  She replied, “Well, that’s where your ancestors are!  Go read the stones!”  We stopped by the graveyard on the way home in Ellettsville, Indiana and studied the stones we found there.  She was right!  [NOTE:  There were four generations of his ancestors buried there!  His grandparents, his great-grandparents, his great-great grandparents and his Civil War ancestor, his great-great-great grandfather, James Dean Gooldy, with their wives are all buried there.]  Since that time, his parents have been buried there and now that he and our daughter have joined them, there are seven generations of this one family buried there!]  There is room for me there also, next to Ray, and when the time comes, Donna’s husband will lie next to her. When we bought the plots for Donna, we chose a line of six graves, so, perhaps, many years in the future, there will be room for our grandson, David, who is Donna’s boy, and his wife Ginjer would make a total of eight generations of our little family to be buried in the same graveyard.  That sure will make it easy for little Donna Lynn, our two-year old great-granddaughter to do her genealogy on her father’s side, won’t it?

 

We wanted to find out more.  That was how we got started in a hobby that can quickly turn into an obsession.  “We bought many of these books because Ray and I both worked five-day weeks and the only time we had to research was Saturdays at the Indiana State Library.  [NOTE:  Computers were not in use at that time in 1972.] When we saw a book, or an advertisement for one we thought would be helpful, we ordered one from the publisher.  We ordered as many as we could afford and checked them out for our ancestors.  When the research was negative and we found no ancestors of ours, what did we do with the books?  We wound up with good books, just not ones with our ancestors in them, so we talked to our friends, members of the societies we belonged to, and librarians we knew who all wanted a list to see if they thought their ancestors might be in some of those books.  So Ray typed up a list and we carried it with us, and sure enough, some of our genie buddies did want those books, so we sold them to the people who wanted them, and then we would have the money to buy more which hopefully, would have some of  our ancestors in them.  I’m still doing it, almost thirty-five years later  This newsletter list is part of what I do to pass on to others the books that don’t have Ray’s or my ancestors in them.

You see, I get to read and write a review for every one of these books, so while I am preparing the newsletter, I get to check out over a thousand of books a year for our Gooldy and Van Treese genealogy research, as well as the other 86 surnames I am still searching and I get to do this research without even having to leave my home! 

I have always been an avid reader since my aunt, Margaret Blacketer, who lived right next door to us, began to teach me to read when I was a little over four years old.  I lived out in the country and there were no children my age close enough for me to play with, so my extended family taught me when I was very young to play both children’s games, grown-up card games, checkers, Chinese checkers, and some I have forgotten, but am going to relearn, so I can teach my great-granddaughter, Donna, to  play games that will grow her mind as well as grow her body and to read to learn and to read for fun and to love books.  It has been a very fulfilling skill and hobby for me! 

THANK GOODNESS!   This has turned into a lifetime obsession, and I read all day in my job and all evening for pleasure.  What could be better than that?  Hey!  Thanks for letting me reminisce on company time! 

 

By the way, this is a lesson in how to write your genealogy book.  Just sit down, think of someone in your family, or an event, or an ancestor, and write down what you think you know about them.  Think about the people of past generations, the ones you knew, and the ones you have only read about, or think about an event, something that happened, an incident, in your life or in one of theirs and write it up.  Answer your own questions about your ancestor!  Write the incidents that occur in your every-day life as they are found or lived while they are still fresh in your mind.  I try to write down the things that happen during the day that make me smile.  You can always edit and revise it and add dates and facts to it later.  Just do it!  The hardest part of every project is the first part, so every day write about something.  As old as I am, I never run out of thoughts that whisper across my mind when I am riding in the car or reading a book that reminds me of something that happened to me.  Write them down!  As many happy occasions as I have had in my life, I will never run out of ideas! 

Someday all you will have to do is assemble your sheets in chronological order, add the family group sheets where applicable, and you will be almost done with your book.

 

Here are the South Carolina books we have in stock now.!

 

SC – GKS –SC  BOOK 1:  SOUTH CAROLINA GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH By George K. Schweitzer, Ph.D., SC.D.  This 190- page book contains over 1,107 sources for tracing your SC ancestors.  Chapters include (1.)  Background in History and Geography.  (2.)  35 types of records you need to check.  (3.)  Locations where these record types are to be found and (4.)Research Procedures and detailed county-by- county listings of records to be found in that county for each of SC’s 47 counties.  Multiple copies of this book are available.  PRICE:  $12 each

 

SC – RSCH-SC  BOOK 2:  THE SOUTH CAROLINA LOCATOR.  Another Researcher’s Publication.  21 pages, 8“ by 11”, cardstock covers, stapled and taped binding.  This book is part of a series of several states feeding migration routes into the Midwest for which books of this type were needed.  The SC state map showing county outlines at the very front of this book is an outline map of the state with all counties named and with the date of formation on each of them noted.  The next thirteen pages are filled with SC individual county maps with major, and many minor, towns with names and locator dots.  The proper county shape is there, the name of the county, the date of creation, the parent county or district and the name and zip code of the county seat. [Note: That is all you need to write the County Courthouse for information about your ancestors.]  Also, throughout the book, most of the towns from long ago to about the year of 1950 are listed alphabetically in one column with the name of the county that holds their genealogical records in its courthouse in the second column.  Many of these towns are now extinct, but their records can still be found once you know what county holds their records.  I carry these for several states at varying prices depending on their size and complexity.  I also keep an entire set on my desk for ready reference.  Multiple copies are available.  PRICE for SC is $6.

SC – NWSPPR MARR- BOOK 3:  MARRIAGE NOTICES IN THE SOUTH CAROLINA AND AMERICAN GENERAL GAZETTE  (1781-1782) plus THE ROYAL GAZETTE (1781-1782).  Compiled and Edited by A. S.

Alexander Gillon, of the brigantine Free-Mason, to Mrs. Mary Cripps, widow of Mr. William Cripps.  Date of paper was Friday, July 11th, 1766.  The marriages are not only local, but include notices such as this one: MARRIED.] Lately at Philadelphia, Mr. Isaac Lesesne, jun. of this place, merchant, to Miss Hannah Noarth, daughter of Captain George Noarth, of Philadelphia. (Friday, November 28, 1766).  Deceased prior husbands and fathers are often named.  One of the most interesting was this one:  MARRIED] In January last was married, at Port Arlington in Ireland, Paul Mazyek, Esq; to Miss Hamon, only daughter of the Rev. Dr. Hamon of the said place; an amiable and most accomplished young lady.   

 

The book has an every-name index 13 pages long with two columns of almost 50 names each.  Over 1,300 names involved in marriages in these early days of SC society.  All surnames included with three (,) or more (#) brides and/or grooms/or fathers of brides are:  Ainslie, Air, Alexander, Anderson 7, Ash, Baker 7, Ball 5, Ballentine, Barnwell 4, Beatty, Bellinger, Bennett 4, Blake 4, Boomer 4, Bradwell, Branford 7, Broughton 5, Brown 4, Bull, Bulline 4, Butler, Campbell 6, Cannon, Cantey, Chiffelle, Chisholm, Clifford, Coachman 5, Cochran, Colcock 4, Colleton, Cordes, Cripps, Crook/e, Daniell 4, Dart, Davis 5, Dawson 4, DeLancey 5, DeVeaux 5, Deas, Dewar, Dixon, Doughty 4, Drayton, Elfe, Elliott 6, Ellis, Evans, Farr, Fenwicke 4, Foisson, Freer, Fuller 7, Gadsden 4, Gaillard, Gibbes 8, Glen, Godfrey, Gordon, Guerard, Hall 4, Harleston, Hart 7, Harvey 7, Hassell 5, Heatly, Hext, Heyward 4, Hinds, Holmes 6, Hume, Hutchinson 5, I’on, Izard, Jenkins, Johnston 4, Jones 7, Ladson, Legare10, Lesesne 7, Lining, Lloyd, Long, Lynch 4, Mackay, McKenzie 7, MacNeill, Macpherson, Martin 4, Mathewes 16, Mazyck 4, McKewn Middleton 7, Miles 10, Miller 6, Milner, Mitchell 4, Moore 4, Motte, Muncreef 4, Murray, Peronneau, Perry 9, Pinckney 4, Porcher 4, Postell 4, Prioleau 4, Raven, Remington, Rivers 10, Robert/s, Rogers, Roper 4, Rose 8, Rutledge 4, Sabb, Sanders, Scott, Shubrick 5, Simons 5, Smith 27, Stanyarne, Stevens 6, Stevenson, Stokes, Stuart 4, Swallow, Taylor, Timothy, Trezevant, Tucker 6, Walter 4, Waring 10, Webb 4, Weyman, Wilson 8, Wood, Wragg 6 and Young 5.

SC – 1790 CNSS- BOOK 4:  SOUTH CAROLINA FIRST FEDERAL CENSUS OF THE UNITED STATES TAKEN IN 1790 FOR SOUTH CAROLINA.  Originally published by the Government Printing Office, 1908, Reprint by GPC, Baltimore, 1972.  150 pages, 8” by 11”, hardbound.

Has a very nice early, ca.1796, map, (approximate size)

15” by 19” folded neatly to fit inside the book.  Has an every-name index.  The Introduction of three pages, tells you much about these early census records you may not know. Did you know that within the United States at this time bridges were practically unknown? There were few roads, if there were any roads at all!   Only about 29% of the U.S. was settled.  The United States did not encompass any land west of the Mississippi River at all.  Transportation was entirely by horseback, stage or private coach.  [They do not mention by ship or boat!]  A journey took eight days to travel from New York [the largest city with a population in 1790 of 33,131] to Washington, which in 1790 was a mere Government Project not even named.]   Philadelphia was the second largest city, had 28,522 people, and was the capital of the United States. 

The citizens of the United States had no experience with census taking, imagined that this was some scheme to increase taxation and were wary of participating.  Some religious sects believed a count of the inhabitants was a cause for divine displeasure.  County boundaries were in many cases unknown, unmarked, or not even yet defined.

 

On the census the name of the Head of Household is listed with five columns in which numerical notations were made.  They include, with population statistics for the entire state:

(1.) Names of heads of families,

(2.)  Free white males of 16 years and upwards including heads of families, SC # 35, 576. 

(3.) Free white males under 16 years, SC # 37,722, 

(4.) Free white females, including heads of families, SC # 66,880 

(5.)  All other free persons, SC # 1,801 

(6.)  Slaves. SC # 107, 094.

This puts the total population figure for SC at 249,073.  The total Population of the United States, exclusive of slaves, as derived from this schedule was 3,231,533.  Condition of this book is good, marred only by tape residue on inside front and back covers where small pieces of tape have been removed.   Have it all, no computer needed!  PRICE:  $30

SC – FREEAFR-AM 1:  FREE AFRICAN AMERICANS OF NORTH CAROLINA, VIRGINIA, AND SOUTH CAROLINA FROM THE COLONIAL PERIOD TO ABOUT 1820,  FOURTH EDITION, TWO VOLUMES  1,042 pages, Including the Family Histories of More Than 80% of Those Counted as “All Other Free People.” [4,975 counted in North Carolina alone in 1790, and many of them are in this book.  By Paul Heinegg.  Clearfield Company, 2001 by the author.  This book is incredible!  The detail collected by this man fills these pages with information on Free Blacks and Mulattoes which genealogists are starving for because it is so very difficult to locate. This set of books has won an award for Excellence in Publishing from the North Carolina Genealogical Society.

This set has also won the prestigious Donald Lines Jacobus Award presented by The American Society of Genealogists. The first Edition was published in 1992, the second edition was published in 1994, the third edition was published in 1997, followed by this fourth edition in 2001.  The first article is titled “Ivey Family” and the record begins in 1689, when George Ivey of Norfolk County died leaving to his son, by the same name, 100 acres of land. Twenty-three members of that family are mentioned in, and relationships are given for, that many people in that space.[reference is cited].  This detailed account of this family runs 2 pages.  Other families are listed in even greater detail.  “Often the product of relationships between slaves and free people of various admixtures of African, Native American and European descent, the free blacks familial origins and subsequent domestic connections determined their legal status and shaped, in large measure, their social standing.”  The earlier editions covered free persons of Maryland and Delaware, followed by Virginia and North Carolina.  This expansion of the previous book now also includes South Carolina.  Taken together, the author provides the fullest discussion of the famial origins of free people of color in the Anglophone  colonial South.  The line between freedom and slavery was extraordinarily permeable.  Various peoples of European, African and Native American descent--both free and unfree--crossed the line between freedom and slavery openly.  They worked together, played together and even married openly in a manner that would later be condemned by custom and prohibited by law.  Family histories in this set are for the families of these surnames to which the research applies.  The number is of the first names within that surname.   Surnames of the families include:  Abel 20 , Africa 4, Ailstock 15, Alford 7, Allen 26, Allways 2, Alman 4, Alvis 6, Anderson 88, Archer 40, Armfield 8, Armisted 3, Armstrong 17, Arnold 7, Artis 62, Ashby 10 , Ash/e 72, Ashworth 6, Bailey 8, Baker 10, Baltrip 6, Bannister 20, Banks 50, Barber 12, Bartlet/t 13, Bartly 1 , Bass 137, Bates 7, Battles 6, Bazden 6, Bazmore 11, Beckett 34, Bee 6, Bell 25, Bennett 6, Berry 23, Beverly 15, Bibb(e/i)ns  4, Bibby 13, Bidd(ey/ie) 6, Bing 4, Bizzell 4, Black 1 ,Bow 16, Bow(d)en 7, Bower/s 9, Bowles 3, Bowman 8, Bow(s/z)er 23, Boyd 11, Branch 8, Brandon 15, Braveboy 15, Britt 9, Brook(e)/s 17, Brown 40, Bryan/t 18, Bugg 6, Bullard 2, Bunch/e 49, Bunda/y 17 , Burk/e 11, Burkett 1, Burnett 26, Bur(r/w)ell 13, Busby, Buss 1, Butler/s 20, Byrd 42, Cane 2, Can(n)ady 35 , Carter 61 , (Cary 10,) Case 12, Cassi(d/t)y 10, Caton 1, Causey 9, Chambers 3, Chandler 13, Chapman 19, Charity 42, Chaver/s 27, Chav(es/is) 118, Chivis 6, Chav(os/ous/us) 18,  Church 9, Churchwell  6, Churton 2, Clark/e 31, Cobb 4, Cockran/e 8, Cole 24, Coleman 14 , Collins 34, Combes/st, 11, Combs 18, Conner/s 23, Cook/s 25 , Cooley 4, Cooper 22, Copeland 13, Copes 8, Corn/e 15, Cornet 5,  Cornish 5, Cousins 23, Cox 15, Craig 8, Cuff 9, Cuffee 19,  Cumbo 37, Cunningham 9, Curle 5, Curtis 16, Cuttillo 8, Cypress 9, Dale/s 6, Davenport 12, Davis 26, Day 40, Dean/s 12 , Deas 6, Debrix 16, Demery 25, Demps(e)y 36, Dennis 6, Dolby 3, Donathan 5, Douglas/s 7, Dove 22, Drake 4, Drew 9, Driggers 41, Drig(g)us 10, Drighouse 16.

This set of books has won an award for Excellence in Publishing from the North Carolina Genealogical Society.  This set has also won the prestigious Donald Lines Jacobus Award presented by The American Society of Genealogists.

In addition to the names listed in the Fourth Edition above to which material has been both found and added, there are new surnames appearing in this more recent addition to this body of knowledge.  New, or enlarged, information for family names found in this Fifth Edition are :  Acre, Adams, Ampey, Ancel, Andrews, Angus, Ashberry, Ashton, Atkins, Aulden, Avery, Baine, Balkham, Ball, Baltrip, Barnett, Bartlett, Beavans, Bingham, Binns, Blake, Blue, Bolton, Bond, Bosman, Bowmer, Brady, Brandican, Branham, Braxton, Brogdon, Bruce, Brumejum, Bryan, Burden, Bush, Cary, Cotanch, Coy, Crane, Custalow, Denmun, Derosario, Dixon, Dobbins, Dunn, Dutchfield, Easter, Edgar, Edge, Edwards, Elmore, Epperson, Faggot, Farthing, Fielding, Fields, Fullam, Fuzmore, Goldman, Hackett, Hanson, Hatfield, Hatter, Hearn, Hickman, Hollinger, Honesty, Howard, Hughes, Hulin, Humbles, Hunter, Hurley, Hurst, Jameson, Jarvis, Joiner, Jordan, Jumper, Keyton, Kinney, Lighty, Lively, Liverpool, Lockson, Lugrove, Lyons, McCarty, McGee, Mahorny, Marshall, Mason, Mayo, Meggs, Melvin, Miles, Monoggin, Month, Mosby, Moses, Munday, Muns, Murrow, Nash, Nicholas, Norris, Norton, Nutts, Oats, Oliver, Otter, Owen, Pagee, Parker, Parr, Parrot, Patrick, Phillips, Pittman, Pitts, Plumly, Poe, Portions, Rains, Ratcliff, Rickman, Rogers, Rosario, Roland, Santee, Sawyer, Seldon, Sexton, Shaw, Slaxton, Smothers, Sneed, Soleleather, Spurlock, Stafford, Sunkit, Talbot, Timber, Travis, Verty, Vickory, Viers, Willis, Wooten, Worrell and Wright.  2 huge volumes for one price:  PRICE:  $75 

 

SC – PROBATE-V.1  BOOKS 7A & 7B:  PROBATE RECORDS OF SOUTH CAROLINA - VOLUME I:  INDEX TO INVENTORIES 1746-1785.  By the Rev. Silas Emmett Lucas, Jr.  Published by Southern Historical Press. 1977.  This is Volume 1 of three, sold as a set.  Plus one extra copy to be sold individually.  [NOTE:  The first five volumes of these records covering the years 1736-1746 are not included in this set.  They were incorporated into an index of miscellaneous records available at the South Carolina Archives and the Probate Judge’s Office in Charleston, SC.]

This book is 71 pages and is just an index of testate and intestate names for which files have been, or were, created. He calls the second part an Index, but it is not an index to the first part.  The second part is a different jurisdiction than the first part and does not include the same names. It is an additional 44 pages, hardbound.  SC counties during this period include three counties formed in 1682:  Craven, Berkley and Colleton plus Granville formed in 1710.  The nice clear map in the front establishes the county lines.  The following page shows the map of the parishes of SC during this early time period.  Each is named and numbered with their respective formation dates. Inventories often contain little nuggets of information quite usable for the family researcher.  They contain lists of personal property for persons who had died without making a will (called intestate).  These are the largest part of the records in these volumes, which also include inventories for testate persons [who did leave a will when they died.]

These books also include sales of estates (often showing purchasers [often friends and family members] and divisions of estates.  Almost always the names of the appraisers are given, and often the names of the administrators [for the intestate properties or the name of the executors, for those who left wills.  Many of these are not dated, but a date may be found within the papers, which are not a part of either section of this book,  and the location may be anywhere – a District, a Parish, a County, a River, Township, a Town, etc.  The original volumes, the WPA indexes and the L.D.S. (Mormon) microfilm should all be used in cases where doubt is noted.

The WPAs [Works Progress Administration] were done in the 1930s, as a government-led project to make work for out-of-work people who knew how to type and these workers indexed county records, birth, marriage and death certificates, and a myriad of housekeeping and organizing projects for which we genealogists are eternally grateful.  [I for one, wish President Obama would think of reinstating those projects and bringing the records, which for the most part stopped at 1920, up to at least the year 1999.   He could take several million people off the unemployment rolls and put them to work doing, tedious, but worthwhile work.  With the computers that we have today, we could have this country’s records straightened out in short order.  Neatness and Orderliness bespeak a nation that knows where they have been and also where to go from here!

The microfilm was also done long ago when these original volumes were in better shape than is now the case.  At the time of the publication of these books, copies of all three of these sources were available from the SC archives.  This book covers fifteen such volumes, and the author personally turned every page of these volumes, and spent hours of time viewing the microfilm copies and the WPA records when necessary, in his effort to give you his best reading of the material.  The Archives Control Number, The Volume Designation and the Years covered by each volume are here in the book.  This book’s printing has somewhat faded over time, so a magnifying device should be handy, and a yellow piece of acetate increases readability and contrast.  The

book gives surname, first name, the date, the location, if known, and the volume and page number.  These are the surnames beginning with As-Bs from the book that have two (,)or more (#) entries:  Ackerman, Adams 7, Ainger, Ainslee, Air 3, Aish, Akehead, Akin/s 6, Aldridge, Alexander 4, Allen 8, Allison 5, Al(l)ston 6, Amey, Amos/s, Anderson 20, Armstrong4, Arnold 3, Arthur, Ash 12, Ashby 4, Atchison, Atkin/s 6, Atkinson 4, Audeb(e/u)rt, Austin 3, Avant/t 3, Backhouse 3, Bacon 3, Bail(e)ey 6, Baker/s 17, Ball 11, Ballentine 3, Bampfield, Barker, Barksdale, Barnes 4, Barns 3, Barr 5, Barron, Barton 5, Baynard 3, Beaird 3, Beard, Bearman 3, Beaty, Bedon 4, Bee 4, Bell 9, Bellinger 3, Ben(n)ison 4, Bennet, Bennett 3, Benoist 8, Bird, Black, Blackburn, Blake 4, Blamyer, Bland 3, Bochet 4, Bodell, Bog(g)s 5, Boisseau 4, Bolton 3, Bond 3, Bonhoste, Bonneau 12, Bonny, Boone 12, Booth, Bossard, Boswood 3, Boutwell, Bower/s, Bowman 4, Bradley 3, Bradwell 4, Brailsford 3, Brandford, Branford 5, Bremar 3, Bretton, Brewton, Brisbane, Britton 7, Broadbelt 3, Brockin(g)ton 4, Broughton 11, Brown 27 Browne, Bruce 4, Brunet/t 3, Bruns(t)on 7, Bryan/t 9, Buchan(n)an 4, Buckholt/s, Bull 7, Bulline 4, Burd, Burgess 5, Burn, Burnet 3, Burnett, Burnham 3, Burnley, Burton 6, Bush, Butler 12, Byers. Lots of names are left in this section, but the index covers different names from a different place, so let’s go there.

The next index is labeled Newberry [SC] County Court Records.  The index gives last name, first name and a number [My guess is this number may be a key to a page number in a different set of books, maybe is the key to the original books or papers.]  We will do the names beginning with Cs and the Ds here: Caldwell 21, Calh(oo/ou)n 3, Calk, Campbell 17, Cannon 9, Cappelman, Carmack, Carmical/ Carmichael/ Carmicle 3, Carn(e)s 5, Carson, Casey 8, Casilman/n 4, Cas(s)om, Cate/s 7, Cath(e)rine, Cath(e)y 3, Catoe 3, Cauldwell 3, Cerns 5, Chambers 6, Chandler 20, Chapman 11, Chap(p)el/l 5, Charles, Clark 9, Clarke 3, Clary 8, Cleland, Coat/e  10, Coats 8, Cobb 4, Cock(i)rel 3, Cockrill, Colcock 4, Cole 6, Col(l)ey 4, Collier/ Collyer 4, Collins, Compson , Conner 4, Conway, Conwill 3, Cook 5, Coon 3, Cooper, Copeland 3, Coppock 6, Cothrine 3, Cothron, Cotton 3, Counts 4, Countz 3, Coursey 3, Cox 9, Craig 3, Crenshaw 6, Creswekll 3, Crim, Cromer 6, Croml(e)y, Croomer 6, Cross 3, Cross(i/o)n 4, Crow 3, Cruml(e)y 3, Crumpton, Cummins, Cureton, Dalr(e/y)mple 4, Darb(ee/y) 3, Daugherty 6, Dava(u)lt, Davenport 5, David 3, Davidson 2, Davinport 13, Davis 18, Dawalt, Dawbins, Dawkins 9, Day 5, Deal, Devinport 5, Dial 6, Dickert 6, Dickey 4, Dison 3, Dixon 6, Dodgen 5, Dowertie, Dominic/k 5, Douglass, Dowis, Downs, Duckett 5, Dugan 4, Duncan 9, Dunkin 6, Dunlap 5, Dunn, Durrett 4 and Dyson 4.    PRICE:  3 volumes for $75.  This is Volume 1 of the 3.

SC –  PROBATE V.2 BOOKS 8A & 8B: PROBATE RECORDS OF SOUTH CAROLINA.  VOLUME 2: Part of the above set.  JOURNAL OF THE COURT OF ORDINARY 1771-1775. ABSTRACTS OF VOLUME 00, 1775-1785, LETTERS OF ADMINISTRATION, ABSTRACTS OF LETTERS OF ADMINISTRATION WITH THE WILL ANNEXED, VOLUME K, 1778-1821.  by Brent H. Holcomb, Genealogical Record Searcher.  1978, Published by Southern Historical Press, The book is 280 pages, the index adds 42 pages of names.  Unlike the first book which was two indexes, this book has actual abstracts of the citations.  #1 John Scott – Citation granted to Martha Scott of St. Mark’s Parish, Craven County, Widow to Administer on the Estate and Effects of John Scott late of the Parish and County aforesaid as next of kin.  To be read in the Parish Church aforesaid and returned Certifiyed.  Granted September 3rd, 1771.  [Note: [Many women in that time did not know how to read and write, making handling legal affairs difficult.] So, it was not always the widow who accepted this responsibility, sometimes it was “The Greatest Friend”, “Next Friend”, or “Greatest Creditor!”  Also, such interesting notes such as this one, “To James McCants, Esqr.  These are to Cite and Admonish you to be and appear before me in the Court of Ordinary on Friday the Eleventh Day of October next, then and there to answer to such matters and things as shall be Objected against you by Agnes, your wife, touching your beating, Abusing and Wounding her & your turning her out of Doors & also to shew Cause, if any you can, why you should not be Decreed to allow to her Alimony & a separate Maintainence & Support.  Hereof fail not as you will answer the Contrary at your Peril.  [Pat’s note:  That would scare any man, I would think! ]

To the index:  This is a huge index, but many names are repeated, so I will use the rule of five as a starting place.  I will list 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 first names or pages with a (,).  If there are ten or more than ten up to 19 page numbers for any surname, I will add an asterisk.  If there appears to be more than 20, I will add**or a number.  The page numbers will tell you that you will find something about that surname on that page.  Many pages have the surname in more than one place, so be sure to read the whole page!

S., Book has 141 pages.  Index has 12 additional pages, hardbound.  This journal is important for several reasons.   The relationships stated in the citations is important.  Often these relationships can not be proven in any other way.  The list of marriage licenses and those mentioned within the journal are very valuable.  An understanding of the types of cases and the day-to-day proceedings likely to be found in this court will help you locate Many proceedings not found elsewhere.  This journal was transcribed over a twenty-year period, and many corrections to the spellings of some names erroneously transcribed have been made in this work.  The main value of this work is that the citation, the names, the action, many times the locality are noted in the abstraction.  When the Parish has been mentioned, it is a pearl of great price and worth for it may lead you to many parish records that will shed great light on your ancestors and their life in South Carolina.  The index is hard to read for the print is very light, so I am going to list only the surnames with five first names or five page numbers.   Numbers reflect the number of pages listed for that surname: Adam/s 14, Aggnew 12, Allen 5, Allison 7, Amory 7, Anderson 9, Armstrong 5, Ash 31, Atkins 5, Austin 5, Bailey 9, Baker 5, Ball 7, Barn(e)s 7, Baxter 5, Baynard 12, Bea(i)rd 13, Beaufort 5, Bedon 11, Bell 5, Bellinger 9, Boutwell 8, Bradwell 6, Brown 25, Brunson 7, Bull 29, Bulline 12, Butler 10, Campbell 13, Carpenter 5, Carson 7, Cattel 7, Christie 19, Clark 9, Coachman 7, Cole 6, Coleman 5, Congarees 8, Cook 6, Cooper 14, Cow(a/e)n 8, Crawford 6, Crockat/t 7,Darquier 5, Davidson 10, Davis 12, Day 8, Deas 5, DeSaussure 8, Dingle, Donnom 7, Dubourdieu5, Dunn, Edwards 15, Egan 7, Ehney 5, Elliott 12, Ellis 5, Ellison 7, Evans 13, Fendin 6, Ferguson 19, Findel(a/e)y 6, Ford 12, Freer 5, Gadsden 5, Gaillard 6, Garden 11, Gardner 5, Garvey 5, Geiger 5, Gibb 5, Ginn(e)s 12, Gig(g)nilliat 5, Giles6, Godfrey 6, Gordon 10, Gould 5, Graves 8, Green 9, Grumball 6, Grimes 5, Guerin 6, Hamilton 5, Hart 14, Harvey 7, Hext 5, Heyward 6, Hogg 12, Hollingsworth 6, Hunt 5, Hunter 6, Hitchens 5, Jackson 5, Jenkins 9, Johnston 33, Jones 30, Jordan 11, Ladson 25, Lorens 6, Lesesne 10, Lewis 15, Lynus 5, Livingston 8, Lloyd 9, Lyolbrunby 5, Manigault 6, Marshall 9, Matthews 6, Mazyck 16, Miles 8,
