Bartholomew County, South CarolinaEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
Bartholomew County was never surveyed or properly laid out. Its boundaries were ambiguous. Its county government never became functional. Most records were kept at the parish level; none were kept at the county level. There was no county seat. There were no political connotations to the county's existence. In this case the term "county" had no meaning other than to describe an approximate geographical area. It was a county in name only.
Bartholomew County was abolished in 1791.
