Genealogy and History site.
Marion County was initially created in 1785 as
the county of Liberty in old Georgetown District, one of the original judicial districts created in
1769. In 1798 when courthouse districts were created
in South Carolina, the name "Marion District" was first used, honoring General Francis Marion of
Revolutionary War fame.
