By: Brent Holcomb, Pub. 1981, 240 pages, soft cover, Index, ISBN #0-89308-213-9.
Since the Lancaster County probate records were destroyed in 1865, this is the only basic record left for this valuable county. A few wills were recorded in these deed books, as well as a number of deeds for the BURNED-OUT Chesterfield County. Kershaw County was formed from part of Lancaster in 1791. Deeds are one of favorite research tools of the genealogists due to the wide variety of family connections found within them. Not only will the reader find the deed transaction itself, but often times such things as: marriages, relinquishments of dower, divisions of family farms among heirs, remarriages of widows are just a few of the matters you can anticipate finding within records of deeds.
