Cemetery notes and/or description:
Coming Street Cemetery is the oldest Jewish cemetery in South Carolina. It was originally purchased by Isaac Da Costa, the first Hazan of Beth Elohim, for a private burying place for his own family. He conveyed this burial ground in 1764, for a consideration of seventy pounds, in trust to certain trustees "for a place of burial for the use of the Jews residing in Charles Town or elsewhere within the Province of South Carolina, who conform to Jewish rites and ceremonies and observe the rules, orders and regulations the Jews congregation in Charles Town named Beth Eloim."

This information was written by Dr. Barnett A. Elzas, 1903, for his book "The Old Jewish Cemeteries at Charleston, S.C."
