History

Claremont County was created from a south central part of, and as a subordinate of the overarching Camden District, South Carolina in 1785. See the 1786 South Carolina map.[1]

In 1791 a part of Claremont was given to help form Salem County, South Carolina. In 1800 Claremont, Clarendon (1785-1800), and Salem counties were combined to form the new Sumter County. The Claremont County name was extinguished at this time.[2]

For documents of people who lived in this area at this time, look in:[3]
