Overview

This book provides family sketches and genealogical information on the first families to settle in Edgefield County, SC. The earliest settlers date back to the early 1700s. This area is particularly significant as the "end" of the Great Wagon Road from the New England States. Generally the area was not populated by white settlers until just prior to the Revolutionary War, but immediately following the war, thousands of people passed through as they pushed into Georgia, Alabama, and points west.

By the time of the 1790 census, Edgefield county had families with 763 surnames listed. This volume focuses on the families which were apparently in the area as early as 1750.
