Sumter County sits on the banks of the Wateree River in central SC. It was created in 1800 from Craven County and in turn was created in 1682. Early records show that these early land grants east of the Wateree River were all located in the now extinct Craven County. Sumter county itself sits within the largest of all SC parishes, St. Mark’s Parish. This volume should be considered a companion to all books on this region.
