This volume consists of marriage and death notices from the three Baptist newspapers which were published in South Carolina before and during the Civil War. The Southern Baptist and General Intelligencer or later The Southern Watchman and General Intelligencer (1835-1837), The Southern Baptist (1847-1860), and The Confederate Baptist (1862-1865). The first two were published in Charleston and the last was published in Columbia. As the compiler, professional genealogist Brent H. Holcomb, notes "references to 'this city' should be noted appropriately." Although the Biblical Recorder gives its dateline as both Raleigh and Charleston, it was actually published in Raleigh and has not been included in this publication. The notices themselves pertain mainly to South Carolinians or persons with strong South Carolina connections. Of much interest are notices of persons who had removed to other states, particularly Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, and Louisiana.
