lays/laid next to = (now Anderson, Oconee and Pickens Counties)
In 1826 Pendleton District was divided into Pickens and Anderson Districts,

"Pendleton District", and to provide a forum to
                      exchange information and place queries relating to Pendleton District.

                      Prior to the 1769 organization of seven judicial districts, Pendleton did not exist.
From  1769 until 1789, the area known as Pendleton District lay within the unorganized Indian lands
(though some maps show a portion was within the northern boundaries of  Ninety-Six District).
This Indian Land area had been taken from the Cherokee during the American Revolution.
In 1786, Greenville County was carved from this area, and
in 1789  Pendleton County was established.

 The Old Pendleton District SCGS publishes ten 24-page newsletters a year, loaded
with information on the area and people of the District (now Anderson, Oconee and Pickens Counties).

OLD PENDLETON CO, SC DATABASE  (post on separate page? )

I just received the new "Old Pendleton Database" CD which
list over 300,000
souls that lived in the old Pendleton of South Carolina or
descended from
people that did.  The people on the SELLERS list have been
so helpful in my
search for lost relatives that I would like to try to return
the favor by
doing look ups on this CD as well marriages from the Old
96th Dist/Abbeville
County, SC (1774-1890).  I have already checked this list of
marriages and
did not find a Sellers listed, however, I'm sure that there
are some maternal
surnames listed that can be of some value.

The following is the format used on the "Old Pendleton
Database".  Note the
reference numbers by each name.  This number, along with the
name, will help
in my search.

That is my family.  I am Martha Carole Sellers Moon
WALKER(now).  Sid Moon passed away at an early age of 42 and
I married again to MELVIN ERNEST WALKER, my childhood
sweetheart.  Carole in South Carolina

FRED, thanks. we don't have this info posted per se.
And SC is in need of info!

Please Understand my questions =
Is there a way you can post the index on
OR are they ALL set up where if you go to the one name it
lists the Complete
chart/Reference numbers  on that family?

Appreciate you sharing with us and taking the time to do so.
marie, iowa

I have tried all day to find a way to extract a
printable list of Sellers from the Old Pendelton dBASE so that I could post it
and list members could check for a name, but it just doesn't seem to be a way
to do that.  I will be happy to check each and every name that list members
would provide.

It seems that I am related to just about everyone that
settled in (or just passed through) the Old 96th District of South Carolina,
therefore, I have been doing research in the area for many years and have a
huge dBASE.  I would be happy to help anyone that may have a question about
the area or relatives that may have been in the area.  Regards, Fred
