These are genealogies and timelines of some of the Quaker families who lived in the Bush River area of Newberry County, South Carolina, from the mid-18th century onward. By 1800, their anti-slavery stand had caused many of the families to move to the North and West.

The articles are donated to the website by the authors as noted on the pages and are used with permission. They have not been edited or modified in any way. Both Judith Russell and myself wish to thank the individuals, families, and organizations for these valuable contributions.
