Platts surname on Hampton County, Allendale County, and Beaufort County. The Platts Family received their original grant in 1752 on the Salkehatchie River near the Rivers Bridge State Park in what is Allendale County today. My part of the family purchased land in Beaufort County in 1820 in what is the Hickory Grove community of Hampton County. While I am the President of the John Platts/David Holbrook Platts Family Reunion, Rose Marie Williams of Abbeville is really the Platts historian. Some of the Platts family moved into the Denmark area of Bamberg County and dropped the "s" off the name for the Platt family in that area. The German name was Platz.

Thanks
