Doing research in the GoldenCorner portion of South Carolina (Abbeville, Anderson, Oconee & Pickens) might be time consuming for you, because of how these counties were formed.  Based on your time-period, you might need to research all (4) counties. 


Anderson County and its county seat, Anderson, were named for Revolutionary War general Robert Anderson (1741-1812). This region was occupied by the Cherokee Indians until 1777, when it was ceded by treaty to the state. Part of the "Indian Land" became Pendleton District (also called Washington District at one time.) The area was given its present name in 1826, when Pendleton District was split into Anderson and Pickens. Most of the early settlers of this area were Scotch-Irish farmers who moved south from Pennsylvania and Virginia in the eighteenth century. The oldest town in the county is Pendleton, which was founded around 1790; it became a popular summer resort for low country planters in the nineteenth century. Some famous residents of Anderson County were United States senator and governor Olin D. Johnston (1896-1965), business leader Charles E. Daniel (1895-1964), and composer Lily Strickland (1884-1958).  (Submitted by: SC State Library / Mary Morgan, 31-Mar-2008)

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.
