meetings the second Sunday of each month except July and December. Some of the the projects that we are involved in
are: collecting church histories from all the denominations in
our area and encouraging these churches to have their records microfilmed, adopting and cleaning abandoned cemeteries,
and having memorial markers placed for our county's war

New Information


Dr. Guy B. Funderburk's book "Funderburk History and Heritage", first published in 1967, is being re-published. There were originally only 600 published. The authors, Mary Sloane Funderburk and MaryAnn G Green, are offering a pre-publication price of $70 plus $ 5 shipping and handling (this can be waived if they live near Pageland and would like to pick the book up in person). After the end of September 2018, the price will go up to $90. There will be a limited run of only 500 or fewer books. Anyone interested in purchasing one has the chance before these are gone. If you are interested please contact:

MaryAnn G. Greene

Please reference that you found this information on the Chesterfield Genealogical FaceBook or Web Page.

The Funderburks first settled in Lancaster County near Spring Hill Baptist Church in Tradesville Community in the late 1700s. They soon moved into Chesterfield County and today can be found all over the county and the State of South Carolina.

We are working on including more information from James Piggs original Society Website.  Please stay tuned.
