Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of family history information about the Withers/Weathers Family and includes many narratives, essays, and anecdotes of family members, genealogical information and notes, copies of photographs, newspaper articles, deeds, maps, and other records related to the family which were compiled by John S. Withers, Jr. Included are sections titled “Withers Family: Family Members,” “Withers Family: Withers Homes,” “Withers Family: Feasterville Connection,” “Withers Family: Sarah Withers and Friends,” and “ Withers Family: Miscellaneous Papers.” The majority of the collection pertains to the Withers and Weathers Family, but there is some information about the Meador and Walker Families as well. The collection covers the family from the 1600s up through 2007, but a majority focuses on the family from the Berryman Hicks Withers (1818-1875) line and the family mostly from North Carolina (Gaston County) and South Carolina (Chester County, Fairfield County, and York County).

Winthrop University's connection to the Withers family as Sarah Withers (1873-1955) who was a Winthrop graduate and the first principal of the Winthrop Training School (the building was renamed in her honor as W.T.S./Withers Building in 1969) is the Great Aunt of John S. Withers.

Provenance

Withers/Weathers Family History Papers were given to the Archives by John S. Withers on April 25, 2008.
