United States Gotoarrow.png South Carolina Gotoarrow.png Waccamaw County

Waccamaw County was a tentative name given to what officially should have been Kingston County on the 1800 federal census.[1]

Neither Kingston nor Waccamaw ever became a real, functioning county.

Kingston/Waccamaw County was renamed Horry County in 1801.[1]

For documents of people who lived in this area in 1800, look in All Saints Parish records, Georgetown District records in Georgetown, or for papers filed in Charleston, South Carolina.
