Located in the Camden District, Richland County is surrounded by Calhoun, Clarendon, Fairfield, Kershaw, Lexingting, Orangeburg, and Sumter counties. Due to the 1800 Federal Census being lost for Richland County, the researcher will find this book to be of great use. Two chapters are devoted to will abstracts from the probate offices of Charleston, Camden, Winnsboro, and Richland County. One chapter entitled early landowners is quite useful for the genealogist as the plat books have often been followed in locating owners, as the plats often contain interesting information in the notations made on them. The figures in parenthesis indicate the holding and the date, followed by location and neighbors. These plat books cover the time frame 1732-1776. One chapter in particular is devoted to the Revolutionary period: it lists soldiers, their service records, and also lists bounty land grants for the county of Richland. There are two other chapters devoted strictly to the early settler / pioneers of this region of which genealogies or biographical sketches are given in great detail on such families/individuals as: Adams, Bates, Benson, Blanding, Bookter, Brown, Bynum, Center, Chappell, Clarkson, Clifton, Compty, Denley, Dinkins, Douglas, Dubard, Dunlap, Edmunds, Egan, English, Entzminger, Goodwyn, Green, Guignard, Hampton, Hay, Hirons, Hopkins, House, Howell, Hunt, Killingsworth, Kinsler, Lithgow, Lunsford, Lykes, Marshall, Myers, Partridge, Patterson, Pearson, Purvis, Rainford, Reese, Rives, Scott, Smith, Smyth, Spigner, Stark, Taylor, Tucker, Turnipseed, Wade, Waring, Weston, and the vast mentioning of other pioneer settlers....
