Bio and Links
I have added these memorials, mostly from the historic cemeteries of Charleston to memorialize all the individuals who have contributed to Charleston's past.

In the event a photo of a headstone is not included, it generally means that the memorial information was taken from a cemetery transcription or death record. One of those who did the transcription was Elizabeth C. Curtis. Without her efforts cemeteries such as Trinity United Methodist and Old Third Central Presbyterian Cemetery records would not be included or available since neither of the above church exists today, including the cemetery and headstones. I just found out yesterday January 21, 2010 that internments of Old Third Central Presbyterian Church Cemetery have been moved to Riverview Memorial in Charleston. There are others who did transcriptions, but I am not aware who they are. If someone knows, I would be glad to acknowledge them in this profile.

Some of the headstones at the Circular Church were impossible to read, however the church had previously documented many of the graves sites by plot #'s. In those cases where I could not read the headstone I used the information from the church records found at the Charleston library to identify the headstones. I did list the plots #'s on the majority of the memorials.

A special thanks to the work of Clare Jervey published in 1906 with the transcription of St. Michael's. Her transcription allowed me to include much that was unreadable.

Thank You!
The work you are doing is Wonderful.
You are appreciated more than you will ever know.
I live in the FL Panhandle. When doing a college research paper a few years back (1988) I visit Charleston and fell in love with the city and it's history. I was working on the Turnbulls and Bays. Now in my twilight years I just work on all the old families :-)
I love the name Saratoga. I used to live in Sartagoa NY, also a beautiful little town in the 1950s.

RE: William Venning, etal
Hi John,

Yes, many of my ancestors are also interred in St.Philips one of our family churches. My Great great maternal grandmother married John Falls Walter. He's on ancestry .com So it's from him and his Walter ancestor which I will have to double check I think his father was Wilmont or Eben Evan -one was his father and one was his grandfather. I have a portrait of Eben Evan Walter and he is the exact image of my oldest brother. My Haskell line comes from me great great paternal grandmother Olivia Haskell (that is what my mother called her) the one that married William Lucas Venning Sr. I don't remember my grandmother or mother talking about a Pritchard relation but it could go back so many are interweaved! I used to tell my mom she was related to half of SC. So I only know for definite we are Walter, Haskell, Venning and others not mentioned I will have to look up some more. If you have any Walter/Haskell history would love to hear about it. We are most surely related by marriage I believe!

RE: William Venning, etal
Hi John, My great great paternal grandmother was a Haskell. My brother carries the Haskell middle name from the family. Susan Olivia Haskell(I have a large framed portrait of her in storage I will try to get out and post the pic) married my great great grandfather William Lucas Venning. The Walter family was very prominent! My middle name is Dove as was my grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, and cousin! Lots of Doves in our family! Lol anyway, yes handed down from the family surname. Wilmot Walter and Eben Evan Walter, John Falls Walter all my ancestors and probably yours too. Walterboro is named after our family. Sarah Dove Walter married William Lucas Venning Jr. and this is his father and mother buried in the Venning cemetery in Mt. Pleasant. When I get a chance, I will look through some of the old family things and try to update with some further info. This is just off top of my head sorry! Suffice it to say we are most highly likely related! Sarah Dove

Margaret Broun Lord
Thank you so very much for the transfer of Margaret. I deeply appreciate all you do for all of us of findagrave. I've been searching for a Margaret Brown Lord married to John Lord of South Carolina. I'm so happy when I discovered her as Broun. I'm very excited. Sincerely,Tania

Eliazar Levy - Coming Street Cemetery
Hello Saratoga,

I was excited to see you made an entry for who I believe was one of my first ancestors to come to America. I have been trying to find out what happened to him and was happy to see you may have helped to solve the mystery. I am curious if you know if a Judith Levy is also buried at the Coming Street Cemetery? I believe she died around 1790. Eliazar (I thought it was spelled Eleazar) was born in the Netherlands and came to America via England. He is the great-grandfather of Judah P. Benjamin and I believe his daughter, Judah's great-aunt Miriam Hyams is also buried in Coming Street, or at least in Charleston.

Any other info you can provide will be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you for all that you have done.

RE: Adele Kershaw
Okay, thanks John. Since A.E. Kershaw was "Anne", not Adele, I feel 99.9% sure that this Adele (Allston King Middleton) Kershaw (52526929) is my ancestor, first wife of John Middleton and first wife of George Trenholm Kershaw. If it's okay with you, I'll put in a request to attach George's "Find a Grave" number(22840523), to Adele's, as her 2nd spouse. If you approve, I'll also adjust her birth and death dates (1844-1889), and possibly add a photo.

Thanks again,
