==== Record Loss  ====

+
{{Fire}}
+
 
+
*A fire during the federal occupation of Columbia in February 1865 destroyed the courthouse and most of the records in it. Most of the equity and probate records, however, had been safely removed.<ref>"South Carolina Counties with Burned Courthouses" in ''FamilyHistory101.com'' at http://www.familyhistory101.com/southcarolina.html#extinct (accessed 10 May 2011).</ref> Deed books suffered heavy record losses.
