Description: The deed book abstracts in this volume were gleaned from documents that were recorded between 1829 and 1832. In addition to the names, dates and land descriptions one would expect to find in such records, these deed abstracts also reveal names of children and neighbors, ties to other areas, clues to family wealth (or lack of), names of wives, mothers, slaves, previous spouses, kinship, etc. These pages contain deeds of trust for protection of wives and small children from a husband's financial troubles, marriage contracts, deeds of gift naming children and grandchildren, contracts, powers of attorney from Edgefield people who had moved to other states, sheriff sales, depositions, mortgages, and even one registration of a stock mark. Many chains of title reach back to the 1700s. The names of witnesses, adjoining landowners, heirs, churches, plantations, rivers, and creeks are included. More than two-hundred slaves are named, many with their age and description. The deeds are presented in original page number order with a full name index. Plantations, rivers and creeks are also indexed.
