Winton County, South Carolina Genealogy
Winton County was never surveyed or properly laid out. Its boundaries were ambiguous. Its county government never became fully functional. Most records were kept at the parish level; few were kept at the county level. In this case the term "county" had little meaning other than to describe an approximate geographical area. For the most part it was a county in name only.
