**City Directories and History:** Architect, Mr. Robert Mills was hired by the State of S.C. to create accurate maps of the state’s districts. In turn, he employed knowledgeable surveyors to survey the local areas, from which he created his finished maps of S.C., districts or counties. This resulted in accurate maps of roads, streams, and cities located in each. Click on the **More Information** links, (found under the picture column), for an enlargeable county map, a history of Robert Mill’s survey of S.C. counties, written by Gene Waddell in 1980, an index to the names listed on the maps, and enlargeable quadrants for conducting in depth research.

“**William Robertson** *completed, as has been noted, the first district map that was approved. He received an advance of $500 for Abbeville in July, 1817, and he was paid a balance of $650 in December, 1817. His “remarkably correct” survey is missing*.” Information from: *Mill’s Atlas of South Carolina – 1825*, Southern Historical Press, 1980

R&R has also taken individual county maps and created a list of their recorded sites, allowing R&R’s users, faster access to historic data. Each of the **More Information** links opens items connected to the Mill’s map of this county. The last four are those related to Quadrants 1-4. Names within each quadrant are listed below and at the bottom of the page, is an alphabetical list, of all names shown in Abbeville District, along with other counties in which the name also appears. Another excellent website to view the Mill’s maps is at **Rumsey’s Maps**.
