  • Some details about Lem Evatt are provided by genealogies.  The following information reports Lem born in Pendleton Town, in Anderson District.  I have not found supporting evidence of the town or location where Lem was born, but Anderson County, reported here as the birth county, did not exist at that time.  Lem was born in old Pendleton District of South Carolina, from which Anderson and other counties were created in December 1826.

    "On 19 December 1816, Pendleton District gained the Indian lands along the Chattooga. Finally, on 20 December 1826, the Pendleton District was abolished and replaced by Anderson and Pickens Districts. Pickens District incorporated both the current Pickens and Oconee Counties."
