Welcome to Clarendon County. My name is Cindy Ridgeway Parker. I volunteered to coordinate the Clarendon County, South Carolina USGenWeb homepage in 1996 because all of my roots go back to the original settlers of Clarendon County. I was born in, grew up in, and I live in Sumter County, less than 20 miles from where my ancestors were farmers and then planters from as early as 1740. My parents, my grandparents, their parents, and on back were all born in Clarendon County which was at one time, part of Old Sumter District. My Clarendon County ancestors all moved inland from the low country and coastal regions of South Carolina before the Revolutionary War, having settled in South Carolina from as early as 1680.
If you have Clarendon County roots, then I
might be your cousin. You may visit me visit me via my
personal homepage at http://www.palmettostateroots.org,
where you will find the basics of my personal
genealogy. I am quite willing to share what I have on
the surnames that I research, but please understand
that I am an amateur genealogist, researching my own
family lines. I don't research other surnames or do
other outside research.

"Each smallest act of kindness reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away....."

Be sure to check out the Sumter County, SCGenWeb page too. Since Clarendon County was once part of the Old Sumter District many people with ancestors who migrated west during the 1800s actually have their roots in Sumter County, but just don't realize it.
