I have found multiple errors in Summer's Newberry County. Be careful if using for genealogy work. You will want to confirm what is written here with primary sources.

Best source I've read on the names of historical people, battles and places of Newberry, S.C. I am a direct descendant of Rev. John Cole and Mary (Golden) Cole.of Bush River. She was a heroine of the Revolution. I appreciate the accounting of her actions that as described in this book. .
