    Gable real property transactions indexed in Brett H. Holcomb, Memorialized Records of Lexington District, South Carolina, 1814-1825 (1989 ed.) [reformatted]

    Introductory comment by Mr. Holcomb [excerpt]:

    "Genealogical research in Lexington County/District has been a problem because of major record losses. The deeds prior to 1839 and the probate records were destroyed by fire in 1865. Fortunately, the deeds beginning with Book M (1839) have survived. By the county court act of 1785, the clerk of each county was supposed to send in a list of probates and deeds for each year to the Secretary of State. These lists were generally known as the memorialized records, but they should not be confused with the colonial series of Land Memorials. The extent to which the clerks complied with the act is unknown, as only a few of these lists are extant. A few of these records were known to exist for Lexington District, but the bulk of them were discovered among the Legislative papers in 1976. . . . These lists cover the years 1814-1825, but the lists of deeds contain many instruments executed much earlier, some prior to the Revolution. The original lists are available at the South Carolina Archives and can be consulted there. . . . Some years apparently have two sets of memorialized deeds. The reason for this duplication is not known. The actual deed books and the wills and administrations have not survived."
