Actually I am looking for a series of books abstracted by Caroline Moore.
In the Colonial period All wills and deeds were recorded in Charleston.  C.
Moore transcribed all of the deeds from 1700 - 1780 (I think) and Clara
Langley transcribed the deeds from 1712 -1772.  Brent Holcolmb has picked up
the deed in 1772  -  1778 and transcribed them.  These deeds are not the
Memorials which were a separate group of land transactions more akin to land
grants as given in the other provinces.
