Compiled by professional genealogist Brent H. Holcomb, this volume contains abstracts of marriage and death notices from all York (or Yorkville) newspapers which could be located. An unusual feature of this book is the fact that the Yorkville Enquirer has extant a complete file of newspapers for the period of the Civil War, a time when few newspapers in the South continued to publish. The newspapers in this volume contain marriage and death notices not only from the York area, but also from nearby South Carolina districts Union, Spartanburg, Lancaster, and Chester, and from Cleveland, Gaston, and Mecklenburg counties in North Carolina. In addition to the Yorkville Enquirer, which is the most complete, newspapers in this volume include: The Pioneer, The Pioneer and South Carolina Whig, Journal of the Times, The Yorkville Compiler, Yorkville Miscellany, and The Remedy.
