Special Notes:

1.  Deed Book P2 was left off the old deeds index books; but the original                           
     Deed Book P2 has its own index.
2.  Some deeds in the index are listed incorrectly as being in Deed Book S
     when they are actually located in Deed Book BB.
3.  SC Archives lists a Deed Book TD (recordings 1840-1844), but this is
     actually book BB.
4.  General index to old deeds is inaccurate and incomplete, but is all that is
     available at this time.

Note:  The Deed Book listing and Special Notes were compiled by Glenda Bundrick.
