During the latter part of 1997, Sharon F. Corey began talking
to various people whom she thought would be interested in
beginning a Chesterfield Genealogical Society. On January 11,
1998, Sharon Freeman Corey of Chesterfield County, SC;
James C. Pigg of York County, SC; Patsy Brock Leviner of Marlboro County, SC; Naomi Teal Campbell, Steve Bailey,
and Julious Burr all of Anson County, NC met together to
commit to the establishment of the Society. Officers were
elected, James C. Pigg as President and Archivist, Sharon
Freeman Corey as First Vice-President and Corresponding
Secretary, Patsy Brock Leviner as Second Vice-President,
Julious Burr as Secretary and Treasurer, and the group
unanimously voted to petition for a Charter in the South
Carolina Genealogical Society. With John L. Andrews, Jr.'s,
of the Old Darlington District Chapter, guidance, the petition
was submitted with the O.D.D.C. sponsorship. On January 18,
1998, the Board of the South Carolina Genealogical Society
met and accepted the petition. Then on January 25, 1998,
Doris Bateman, representing the South Carolina Genealogical
Society, presented the Chesterfield District Chapter with its'
Charter before approximately 70 people who attended the first meeting.
