Looks like some areas have hit 1,000 year flood precip levels for 7 and 10 days in 2-3 days.

that's what it looks like. Incredible rainfall. We haven't seen the worst of the impacts yet unfortunately

I can sometimes be skeptical of extreme recurrence periods, since data does not go back that far

A lake in the eastern part of TN, just 6-7 hours away. Amazing the difference in a few hundred miles

Yeah, either way though, has there ever been an event like this recorded since the colonies began?

Probably not, and certainly not enough times to establish trends.

SC was pretty populated, even pre Revolutionary War, so I'd imagine stories or something would exist

Excellent point there. I'm not aware of any extreme flooding event in SC like this.
