Chasing Ancestors in Tryon County

Record #:
Named after Royal Governor William Tryon, Tryon County was created in 1789 and disbanded in 1778. Because of a boundary dispute, a land survey was done and half the county was found to lie in South Carolina and the county was divided. Although it is not easy to locate ancestors in Tryon County, efforts made by genealogists over the last century have proven fruitful.
