The Cemeteries of Northern Richland County, South Carolina, David Kyle Rakes


8 The Cemeteries of Northern Richland County, South Carolina
David Kyle Rakes
(2002), 2007, 5½x8½, paper, index, 412 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
The author crawled through briers, thickets and faced angry ants to compile this useful genealogy tool. Seeing a lack of information out there the author decided to do a survey of burial sites throughout northern Richland County, South Carolina to help preserve the history and the people. The book is separated into four sections. Each section begins with an alphabetical list of gravesites and the pages on which they can be found followed by the individual surveys for each location. He has documented 213 cemeteries and the surveys include name, date of birth, date of death and any other information that may be on the headstone. All 213 cemeteries are above Interstate 20 with the exception of the Fort Jackson Cemeteries that lay southeast of Columbia and a handful that are just south of the Interstate in Northern Richland County, SC. This is a very valuable tool for the genealogist as many of these cemeteries are in danger of disappearing by nature, pollution, vandalism and land development.

9 The History of South Carolina Under the Proprietary Government, 1670-1719
Edward McCrady
(1901), 2007, 5½x8½, paper, index, 2 vols, 772 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
This history of South Carolina spans the fifty-year period from the settlement of the colony under the Royal charter to the overthrow of the Proprietors' rule in 1719. The progress of the colony is traced from the settlement in Old Town on the Ashley, to its removal to Oyster Point, and finally, its "present site of the city of Charleston". "Despite political turmoil, hurricane, pestilence, and fire, the tomahawk of the Indian, and the sword of the French and Spaniard, we shall find the colony gradually developing from an emigrants' camp to social order and settled government, and carrying on successfully at their extreme end of the line of English colonies the experiment of representative government. We shall find them laying the foundation of great fortunes, building churches, quarrelling over religion, but withal strenuously maintaining it, and curiously mixing Puritan fanaticism with High Church dogma, founding schools and libraries, and laying so broad and deep the foundations of jurisprudence that that structure has continued to this day to rest upon the code of laws adopted in 1712."Appendices contain the Rules of Precedency Under Locke's Fundamental Constitutions; Devolution of Title of the Proprietary Shares in Carolina; List of Palatines; Landgraves and Caciques; List of Governors; Law Officers; Populations (1671-1719); and An Account of the Number of Ships and Vessels Entered, and of Negroes Imported from the Year 1706 to the Year 1724, Both Inclusive. A full name plus subject index adds to the value of this work.

“Census” Department of the South, November, 1864: For Jacksonville, Fernandina and St. Augustine, Florida. Ordered by the Department of the South, Hilton Head, South Carolina, Florida State Genealogical Society


10 “Census” Department of the South, November, 1864: For Jacksonville, Fernandina and St. Augustine, Florida. Ordered by the Department of the South, Hilton Head, South Carolina
Florida State Genealogical Society
(2002), 2007, 8½x11½, paper, 282 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
One of the forgotten legacies of the Civil War was a special census of eastern Florida conducted on the orders of Federal military authorities. Its motivation is to this day unclear, but it seems likely to have been done to help register voters. African-Americans living in the region were also enumerated despite the fact that they did not yet have the legal right to vote. The number, age and gender of these “contrabands” would be of great interest to Union military men who were always on the lookout for new recruits for the growing number of United States Colored Troops regiments being formed. Thus, this special census data opens a unique window on Florida’s Civil War population that has heretofore been closed. This census has been transcribed in columnar format similar to the original. The columns reveal the physical characteristics of the individual including height, eye color, complexion and age. Other information includes where he was born, or if he was “contraband.” A column that gives the last place of residence helps to establish migration patterns. Other columns show where the person was registered for the draft or who his former owner was if he was contraband; the date he came into the department (area); and if he took the oath of allegiance. The last column, entitled “remarks” sometimes reveals occupations. There are two indexes. One is for every name and the other is for all owners of former slaves or contraband.

The Grimké Sisters From South Carolina: Pioneers For Women's Rights and Abolition, Gerda Lerner.


11 The Grimké Sisters From South Carolina: Pioneers For Women's Rights and Abolition
Gerda Lerner.
400 pages, 6 x 9 1/4, appends., notes, bibl., index, paperback, University of North Carolina Press
A landmark work of women's history originally published in 1967, Gerda Lerner's best-selling biography of Sarah and Angelina Grimké explores the lives and ideas of the only southern women to become antislavery agents in the North and pioneers for women's rights. This revised and expanded edition includes two new primary documents and an additional essay by Lerner. In a revised introduction Lerner reinterprets her own work nearly forty years later and gives new recognition to the major significance of Sarah Grimké's feminist writings.

About Author
Gerda Lerner, author of twelve books in women's history, was one of the founders of the field in the 1960s. Her creative scholarship, her organizing work on behalf of women historians, and her leadership in graduate education have been widely recognized and honored. She is past president of the Organization of American Historians, Robinson-Edwards Professor Emerita of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and visiting professor of history at Duke University. Her most recent book is Fireweed: A Political Autobiography.

Reviews
"This book has become a classic work of history that illustrates what is now a central premise among historians: that women's lives mattered in creating the social, cultural, and political contours of the past. In both style and substance, The Grimké Sisters stands out as a model work of history that has inspired a generation of students and scholars. Lerner is truly a master of historical prose."--Jacquelyn Dowd Hall, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Conceiving Carolina: Proprietors, Planters, and Plots, 1662-1729, L.H. Roper


15 Conceiving Carolina: Proprietors, Planters, and Plots, 1662-1729
L.H. Roper
224 pages, hardback, Palgrave Macmillan
L.H. Roper's innovative study provides a transatlantic analysis of the origins of American colonial societies through the instructive case of South Carolina. The work provides the clearest examination of the early history of this important colony yet available. In addition, it features exhaustive primary research that sheds new light on how the colony's particular dependence on race-based slavery evolved, demonstrating the volatile tension between the political culture inherited from the "Old World" and local interests in the Indian slave trade. Conceiving Carolina is an important scholarly contribution to the history of the early American colonies and the Atlantic World.

About Author
L.H. Roper is Associate Professor and Chair of History at the State University of New York-New Paltz. He is the Alexander O. Vietor Fellow at the Beinecke Library, Yale University for 2003-04 and has been a member of the International Seminar in the History of the Atlantic World at the Charles Warren Center for the Study of American History at Harvard University.

Reviews
"Roper's subject is compelling, given the cast of characters and events that made proprietary South Carolina what it was. Roper's original take on the formative period of South Carolina's distinctive history will catch the scholar's notice and raise an eyebrow or two, but all who pore over Conceiving Carolina will be treated to a fascinating story that is as instructive as it is well told." --Warren M. Billings, PhD, Distinguished Professor and Chairman, Department of History, University of New Orleans
"Conceiving Carolina is a welcome contribution to the scholarly literature on colonial South Carolina. Focusing on the era of proprietary government, it delineates the complex relationships that arose between London courtiers, West Indian planters, Yamassee warriors, Anglican missionaries, Huguenot refugees, British and Irish settlers, and African slaves. As Roper shows, the colony's early social and political development replicated patterns evident throughout the British Atlantic; at the same time, a major theme is the weakness of the centralizing Anglo-British state along its transoceanic periphery. Historians will find much of value in this book."--Eliga H. Gould, University of New Hampshire

South Carolina 1860 Agricultural Census: Volume 1, Linda L. Green


17 South Carolina 1860 Agricultural Census: Volume 1
Linda L. Green
2006, 8½x11, paper, index, 306 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Agricultural census records yield valuable genealogical information regarding individual landholdings, slave holdings and production. The agricultural census also reveals economic and social details that it was not specifically designed to demonstrate. For the historian, these records furnish a minute and increasingly complex view of the agricultural economy of the state. They are equally valuable as a guide to the social structure of rural South Carolina during a period of momentous change that transformed the system of labor, revolutionized the ownership of land, and finally ended the state's reliance on low-country crops. Six of the census's original forty-eight columns have been transcribed here: name of owner, improved acreage, unimproved acreage, cash value of the farm, value of farm implements and machinery, and value of livestock. Volume One covers the districts of Abbeville, Anderson, Barnwell, Beaufort, Charleston, Chester, Chesterfield, Colleton, Darlington, Edgefield, and Fairfield.

Alexander Families of Upper South Carolina, Marion A. Whitehurst, Peggy B. Rich, Jerry L. Alexander


20 Alexander Families of Upper South Carolina
Marion A. Whitehurst, Peggy B. Rich, Jerry L. Alexander
(1988), 2006, 8½x11, paper, index, 3 vols., 1116 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Daniel and Mary were born around 1760 in Virginia. Four of their children were born in Virginia before 1795, and four more were born after that date, when the family had moved to South Carolina. The fecundity of this family became apparent in the second generation: son Micajah had eleven children, Thomas had twelve and William had ten. More than three hundred pages are dedicated to Micajah's offspring alone. The male lines are followed as far as possible, and the female lines are followed for two generations. At the end of each family group is a list of sources from which the information on that family was obtained. Carefully and lovingly compiled, this impressive work is illustrated with family photographs, tombstones, maps and original artwork. It contains a brief historical narrative, bibliography and index. Monumental in size, it is an indispensable Alexander family resource.
