Pendleton District SC Genealogy, old Wills

Pendleton District

Woodburn PlantationWoodburn Plantation in Pendleton, South Carolina. Cherokee Indians lived in this region long before the American Revolution. During the war for independence, the Cherokee's sided with Great Britain. It was this decision which led to the loss of their land then located in the northwestern corner of South Carolina. But two months of fight during the summer of 1776 between the local patriot militia and the Cherokees, defeated the Indians. In 1789 this land had became Pendleton County, later re-named Pendleton District. Today we know it as Anderson, Oconee and Pickens counties.
