1870 CENSUS
MARION COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA

By Members and Friends of the Pee Dee Chapter, South Carolina Genealogical Society

Jo Church Dickerson, Editor; Helen B. Moody, Project Director

 

A full transcription of the microfilmed 1870 enumeration of Marion County, South Carolina, made just a few short years after the end of the Civil War. Why another census book?

Over 20,000 individuals who resided in the area that became Marion, Dillon, and eastern Florence Counties are named and fully indexed. Many alternative spellings and enumerator errors are indexed. Each of the eighteen township enumerations is preceded by a page showing: a map of the township as drawn by P. Y. Bethea in his 1882 map of Marion County; a careful description of the township boundaries as they existed in 1870; names of towns, communities, churches, post offices and post office locations when known; waterways and other historical or significant landmarks within the townships. The numbered microfilm sheets are cross-referenced on each enumeration page.

Also included: an 1869 article from the Marion Star newspaper describing the townships; maps of the townships in 1882 and in 1940; and instructions to the enumerators.

677 pages, including 68 page full name and place name index; 8.5x11, laminate cover with spiral coated-wire coil binding. $55.00, $5.00 s/h.
