Pickens County Genealogy




In 1828 Pickens County was formed from the Penleton District. This area had been Cherokee Indian territory prior to the Revolutionary War. The county was named for a Revolutionary War soldier, Brigadier General Andrew Pickens. The courthouse town of Pickens was established on the Keowee River. Oconee County was formed from Pickens in 1868 and too the location of the courthouse. A new courthouse was built within the confines of Pickens county and many residents of old Pickens relocated with their dismantled/reconstructed homes. Textiles have been a prominent product of Pickens County.

admin on “Email notification of replies”

Just wanted to let you know I’ve added two new plugins that should help keep you updated when someone answers your query here.

First, when you create a new post it will be added to your forum favorites. (You can add another discussion to your favorites with the “Add to favorites” link that is on the left hand side above the first post in a discussion.)

Then, when someone replies to a discussion that you have made one of your favorites, you will automatically get an email notification that there has been a response.

You need to do something first to make it happen though:

Click on the “View your profile” link in the line of text just under “South Carolina Genealogy Forum” at the top of the page.

Click on the text that says “edit this information”

Look for the section titled Favorite Notification followed by “If you want to get an email when there is a new post to a topic in your favorites.”

Check the box below that text and scroll down and click update profile.

IF you need help with this, I can enable the option for you.

If you would like me to do that you may post here and I’ll make the change for you.

Thanks,

Avery
