Images of Pickens Co. SC Wills

Pickens County Probate Records

Table RockMarietta title=In 1791, the state legislature established Washington District, an area which is composed of present-day Greenville, Anderson, Pickens and Oconee counties. In 1798, Washington District was divided into Greenville and Pendleton Districts. Pendleton District was composed of what later became Anderson, Oconee, and Pickens. Due to the growing population and poor transportation facilities in the Pendleton District, in 1826, the legislature divided it into a lower part known as Anderson District and an upper part called Pickens District. This land which included all of the present day Oconee and Pickens Counties. Pickens District was named for the American Revolutionary was hero, General Andrew Pickens. Originally the own of Pickens was located in the center of the district on the western bank of the Keowee River. This location is now called Old Pickens. In 1868, the Pickens District was divided into Oconee and Pickens Counties and a town of Pickens (county seat) was begun.

Barnwell Co. SC Genealogy, Wills

Barnwell County



Barnwell, South CarolinaWillis Pond, Barnwell, South CarolinaBarnwell, South CarolinaPictured is the Barnwell County country side and Wilis Pond. Barnwell County was originally part of Orangeburg District, and in 1785 it was named Winton County. It was given its current name in 1800 when it was named for John Barnwell (1748-1800), a Revolutionary War Leader. Barnwell County has decreased in size over the years as new counties were created within its boundaries (Aiken in 1871, Bamberg in 1897 and Allendale in 1919). The South Carolina Railroad, which connected Charleston to Hamburg on the Savannah River, was built through this area, creating the towns of Blackville and Williston in the mid-nineteenth century. 

Early settlers to Orangeburg District: Robert McCampbell, Gabriel Moffitt, W. H. Lacy, Nathaniel Perry, and others.
