This is the second book in which Mrs. Motes makes the genealogical records of South Carolina’s ante-bellum African-American population more accessible to researchers. She has now abstracted all references to African Americans that could be found in the Deed Books for Laurens and Newberry counties, South Carolina, between 1780 and 1827. Both of these counties in northwest central South Carolina were formed from the Ninety-Six District in 1785, so some of the record abstracts actually pre-date the existence of the counties by five years, when deeds were first recorded in Charleston.
Listed in Deeds of Gift, Deeds of Sale, Mortgages, Born Free and Freed. Abstracted from Laurens County, SC Deed Books A-L and Newberry County, SC Deed Books A-G
