Garlington Research - Laurens Co., SC

For those of you that are descended from Laurens Co. settler, John Garlington, if you haven't already done so,
you should contact or visit the Laurens County Library.
There is a great genealogy room located at the library, call and ask for Ms. Martin - (864) 984-0596

A short history of John Garlington is listed on pgs 188-189 in "The Scrapbook: A Compilation of Historical Facts About Laurens County, South Carolina." I also found a "Garlington/Young" property listed on the 1883 Laurens County Kyzer & Hellams Map. A copy of this map can be purchased from the library.

My g-g-grandfather knew the Garlingtons and one of his children married a Garlington.
I have come across two Garlington letters in my grandfather's things, one is a letter from Cadet Henry Garlington to my g-g-grandfather while he was at the Arsenal Academy in Columbia dated Jan. 9, 1857.
The other letter is from a former slave of my great-great-grandfather's, his name is James Henry Garlington and he was born in 1854. I will send copies of these letters to the Laurens Library. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions.
