I. Pension Records (Patriot)
National Records (note a lot of these records have gone unused!):
Introduction: Records of Veterans' Benefits
Revolutionary War Invalid Series, U.S. National Archives, Washington, D.C.
Revolutionary War Pension Applications, U.S. National Archives, Washington, D.C., pension applications contain records of (among others) soldiers who either lived in, or fought in, South Carolina.  These contain a wealth of information often including Bible records.
South Carolina Pension Records (These are state pensions.  Did you even know these existed?)

II. Other South Carolina Records (Patriot and Loyalist) in the South Carolina Dept. of Archives & History Center (note there are more records than just the Accounts Audited!):
Accounts Audited of Claims Growing out of the Revolution, 1778-1804, 328 ff (Records of the Comptroller General)(SCDAH).  These records, the most commonly used, contain detailed receipts of all services rendered to the state by an individual.  These had to be documented in order for that individual to be reimbursed after the cessation of hostilities.  These receipts offer a good way to sort out individuals of the same name.  Each person claimed every possible service and material aid rendered (and probably everything they could get away with!).  The receipts contain original signatures or marks of those claiming services rendered.
