Spartanburg County Probate Records

Spartanburg

Spartanburg County and the city of Spartanburg were named for the Spartan Regiment, which was a local militia unit which fought in the Revolutionary War. The county itself was formed in 1785 and was part of Ninety Six District. It became part of the Pinckney District from 1791 to 1799. In 1897, part of Spartanburg County went to form Cherokee County. During the late 18th century, an influx of the Scotch-Irish moved into this area from Pennsylvania and Virginia. A famous resident was hymn writer and publisher William Walker (1809-1875) and Army general William C. Westmoreland (1914-2005).
