Historical Facts

Pinckney District was created in 1791 by South Carolina from parts of Ninety-Six District and Camden District on previously Cherokee land. The new overarching Pinckney District was created with four subordinate counties within it:[1] (See the 1791 South Carolina map.)

In 1800 South Carolina abolished all her overarching districts including Pinckney District. However, the remaining counties were often called districts as late as 1868.[1]

For documents of people who lived in this area from 1791 to 1800, look in:

  • papers filed in the Pinckney District Seat 1791-1800 at Pinckneyville
  • papers filed in the early capital at Charleston, South Carolina
