Pickens County Probate Records on South Carolina Pioneers



In 1791, the state legislature established Washington District, an area which is composed of present-day Greenville, Anderson, Pickens and Oconee counties. In 1798, Washington District was divided into Greenville and Pendleton Districts. Pendleton District was composed of what later became Anderson, Oconee, and Pickens. Due to the growing population and poor transportation facilities in the Pendleton District, in 1826, the legislature divided it into a lower part known as Anderson District and an upper part called Pickens District. This land which included all of the present day Oconee and Pickens Counties. Pickens District was named for the American Revolutionary was hero, General Andrew Pickens. Originally the own of Pickens was located in the center of the district on the western bank of the Keowee River. This location is now called Old Pickens. In 1868, the Pickens District was divided into Oconee and Pickens Counties and a town of Pickens (county seat) was begun.
