Laurens county is a very special upstate county within South Carolina. It is located just south of Spartanburg & Greenville Counties and was once part of the Old 96 & Abbeville Districts. These notices come from 2 separate newspapers: the Laurensville Herald and the Laurens Advertiser. Newspaper abstracts are very special to SC research due to the state not officially keeping vital records until 1911.
