Welcome to Sumter County. My name is Cindy Ridgeway Parker. I volunteered to coordinate the Sumter County, South Carolina USGenWeb homepage in 1996 because all of my roots go back to the original settlers of Old Sumter District. 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 born in Clarendon County which was part of Old Sumter District. My Old Sumter District 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 Sumter District 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
