Transcribed by Steven James Coker from copies.


1. Spelling is sic.

2. A question mark inside parentheses indicates the transcriber is not confident
as to the correct reading or that the text was not legible.  Square brackets []
indicate material that is explanatory or not found in the document.  Curved
brackets {} are as shown in the document.

3. For this presentation, little attempt has been made to layout the text
identical to that shown in the documents.  In particular, words per line and
line breaks vary.  Some attempt has been made to reproduce capitalization and
punctuation as read.  However, this is not an exact and true reproduction.

4. It appears that the transcribed document was a copy made by the clerk from
the original documents. The entire work appears to be of one handwriting. The
"(29th April 1803)" notation which appears at the bottom may indicate the date
that the copy was made or verified.

5. This version indicates that Charles Amonet signed rather than making his
mark.  I suspect this is a mistake in copying since Charles Amonet made his mark
when signing his will in 1802.

6. It is left to the reader to verify the accuracy of this transcription prior
to use.  This version indicates that Charles Amonet signed rather than making
his mark.  I suspect this is a mistake in copying since Charles Amonet mad his
mark when signing his will in 1802.

7. One of Charles Amonet's daughters was the wife of William Buddin [Sr.] and
the mother of John Buddin, William Buddin [Jr.], Elizabeth Buddin, and Catherine
Buddin.  Charles Amonet's grandson William Buddin [Jr.] married Martha
McIntosh.  The said William Buddin [Jr.] and Martha McIntosh were parents of
Susan Ann Buddin wife of James Myers Coker Sr. The transcriber is a descendent
of Susan Ann Buddin and James Myers Coker Sr.

8. Clarendon County, SC was first established in 1785, from part of Old Camden
District. It was named for the Earl of Clarendon, one of the Lords Proprietors
of Carolina. In 1791, Salem County was formed from portions of Claremont and
Clarendon Counties.  In 1800, Clarendon, Claremont, and Salem counties were
consolidated and became Sumter District. In 1855, Clarendon was taken from
Sumter District and reconstituted with the same boundaries it had in 1785.  In
1888, parts of Marion, Darlington, Williamsburg, and Clarendon merged to become
Florence County.  The remaining Clarendon County has existed with the same
boundaries to this time.
