History

Salem County was erected in 1792 from parts of Clarendon and Claremont counties.

Salem County ceased to exist in 1800 when it was combined with the remains of Clarendon and Claremont counties to form the new Sumter District (or County).[1]

Sumter suffered a major loss of probate records and deeds, on 27 November 1801, when fire destroyed the residence of Sumter District Clerk of Court John Horan, in Stateburg. This fire also consumed the records of Clarendon, Claremont, and Salem counties.
