History of Union Co., SC. "In the year 1775 a large group of settlers in this area found that their lands were actually located in the Province of SC, whereas the grants to the land had been issued by the Province of NC.

It is here on Gilkies Creek that Dr. Whelchel is buried (believed to have died August 7, 1796), and several other members of the Whelchel family. [Gethsemane has been moved twice] The cemetery at the old sight, where Dr.Whelchel is buried is now known as the Vinson Blanton Burying Ground.The grave is marked by a fieldstone with two lines of rough carving. The first line is the initials F.W., the second, appears to have the words Age 81 Yrs. Dr. Whelchel's son, Francis Whelchel Jr., is most probably buried in one of the many unmarked graves in the cemetery. Anne Stockton Whelchel died after 1790, she is believed to be the Anne Welchel listed in the 1800 census enumerated in Union City, SC.

Listing for Union County: Col. Thomas Brandons Regiment included in 1790 Census. Francis Whelchel 1 male over 16, 4 males under 16, 1 female. Union County was formed in 1785. There were at various times several disignations for the area which is now Union County. Prior to 1764 and 1772, the boundary lines between providences of North and South Carolina had not been established in the western region. This lack of boundary led to quite a bit of confusion and Union area was in this disputed region. Therefore, some of the first settlers received their first land grants from NC and some received land grants from Mason Co., NC. Anson Co. was the first NC Co., in that area being formed in 1749. In 1763 Mecklenburg Co., was formed from the western part of Anson Co., & land grants were issued from this county in what is now Union Co. Tryon Co. was formed in 1769. For these counties, land grants, deeds, wills inventories and other records will be found pertaining to persons who lived in what is now Union Co. In 1772 the will, inventories and other records will be found pertaining to persons who lived in what is now Union Co. In 1772 the border between North & South Carolina west of the Catawba River was run & landed in the province of South Carolina"
