Lewisburg County, South Carolina Genealogy
Lewisburg 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.
Lewisburg County was abolished in 1791.
Sherman's army burned most of the records of this area stored in Orangeburg in 1865.
