Pendleton District, South Carolina Genealogy
- Not to be confused with Pendleton County 1789-1826. From 1800 to 1826 that Pendleton County was also known by the alias of Pendleton District.
History[edit | edit source]
In 1800 South Carolina abolished overarching administrative court districts like Pendleton District, and switched to the county concept. The remaining Pendleton County at first included all of present-day Anderson County, Oconee County, and Pickens County.
For documents of people who lived in this area at this time, look for papers filed in Pickensville, the District and County Seat, or in the County Seat at Greenville.
