page 83 - 84 says on March 16, 1783 the state was to be divided into
counties ... not more than 40 miles square and in 1785 Camden District
was divided into 7 counties, Fairfield County beginning at the mouth of
Cedar Creek, thence up Broad River [north] to the mouth of Sandy River,
thence in a strait line [east] to the mouth of Rocky Creek, thence down
the Wateree River [south] to the corner of Richland County, Richland
County's northern line being defined as from the mouth of Cedar Creek,
thence [east] to the mouth of 25 Mile Creek.|
This lasted until 1797 when Fairfield County's southern line was moved north. See page 95 of the above book.
