I just found the Garvin Township answer using the Google search engine. The answer is that Central was called Garvin Township before 1873 and was given the Garvin name in 1870. That explains the 1870 census of Pickens county which does not list Central, but does list Garvin Township along with seven other townships which I have seen other folks looking for in reference to the census.
The detailed answer is at http://www.pickens.k12.sc.us/Information/history.htm.
My William A. Arnold's grandmother was Susannah Gaines. Susannah had a brother James Gaines and the James given name was used many times by his descendents. Also, Susannah Gaines (and William D) Arnold's other descendents intermarried with many of the Early Settlers families you mentioned; ie, Oliver, Boggs, McDow, Abercrombies, etc.
So now more than before, I want to find a copy of the book you have been reading on the History of CENTRAL, SC.
