John -- I can answer part of your question. I have one of those DeLorme Topographical maps of SC. It appears that the Wateree R actually begins as Lake Wateree and forms where the Catawba R is joined by Big Wateree Cr. This is quite near the intersection of Lancaster, Kershaw, and Fairfield County lines. The coordinates are approx. 34N27'15" and 80W52'00". Lake Wateree is formed by the backup of Lake Wateree Dam. Of course, there was no dam in the old days, and it might be a little harder to translate this to a historical map. I have not specifically researched the name changes, but most older references to Wateree, when not specifically naming the river, seem to relate to Big Wateree Cr. If you find otherwise, please advise.
