Abbeville County


Anderson County


Oconee County


Pickens County





The Ninety-Six District was created as an original Judicial District in 1769.  It superceded the old County Court System that had been in place since the 1600's.  In 1785 the Ninety-Six District was divided into six counties: ABBEVILLE, Edgefield, Laurens, Newberry, Spartanburg & Union.  These counties co-existed within the Ninety-Six District and were non-functional (no government).  They only served only as geographical divisions until later on.  In 1798, all Judicial Districts were abolished and their county divisions became Districts.  So at that time, Ninety Six was abolished and  ABBEVILLE, Edgefield, Laurens & Newberry became Districts.  The Ninety-Six District bordered Georgia on its Western Boundary and was the ancestral home on many early Georgia settlers.  Parts of ABBEVILLE later went to form Greenwood (1897) & McCormick (1916) counties.

  • 1670, the first permanent English settlement was made at Albemarle Point (Charles Town).

  • 1713-1719, the SC region separated from NC and became a royal colony.  Records were kept in Charleston.

  • 1769, Nine original judicial districts were established, but records were still kept in Charleston until 1780.

  • 1788, SC became a state. The state government was moved from Charleston to Columbia in 1790, although some functions remained at Charleston until after the Civil War.

  • 1860, SC was the first state to secede from the Union. 

  • 1868, SC was readmitted to the Union.  Districts were now called counties.

  • 1785, Abbeville County & County Court established.

The SC GoldenCorner GenWeb County Homesteads (Abbeville-Anderson-Oconee-Pickens) are due to the volunteer efforts of Paul Kankula (NN8NN) and Gary Flynn (KE8FD).  They have spent thousands of dollars and close to 20-years of spare time in order to bring you these SC GoldenCorner county homesteads.  Our only reward is knowing that all our hard-work will be permanently preserved and enjoyed by endless generations to come.
