Allendale County References
  1. Allendale on the Savannah by Alexania E. Lawton, Bamberg: Bamberg Herald Printers, 1970, 401 pages.  Excellent history, out of print, one lone battered copy in the Allendale Public Library with a page torn out (for shame!).  Very detailed and well done.  I have a photo copy, courtesy of Jim Bryan.

  2. The Town of Allendale, a gem of the South Carolina Low Country by Louis Arthur Searson (no publisher), Columbia, SC, 1949 (this is listed in Cote's Local and Family History in South Carolina p104, and I have a copy.)

  3. History of Orangeburg County, South Carolina, A.S. Salley, Jr., Baltimore: Regional Publishing Company, 1978, reprint of 1898 edition.  Excellent!

  4. South Carolina Highway Historical Marker Guide, published by the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, 1998.  Excellent.

  5. History of Mount Arnon Baptist Church, Allendale (extant records from 1839).  This history was apparently typed by the W.P.A. from Mount Arnon records.  I believe I have all of this captured here on the web site.  Please send more, if you have more.

If you like or use the complete HTML texts that I have put on line, please send a contribution to Project Gutenberg.  It is they who have made these texts available to us.  These are priceless treasures to have readily available.  Send them what you would have spent on a paperback, if nothing else, but these references are most likely not available in any bookstore anyway.

Please Email any additions, errors, or corrections to the county coordinator.
