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.

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,
Chuck

Correct death year?
Please confirm death year of Memorial 131264933 for Charles Larned Atterbury. Per Obituary Record of Graduates of Yale University, page 769, the year is 1914. I did not want to submit in case you had other supporting documentation.

Search Atterbury.

Thank you.

Find A Grave Memorial# 69910362
Thank You.
It is interesting that obit mentions he was a General and picked up for publication in New York. All the pension records I found suggest he was a private.

However, having been appointed to the "Robb Commission" by President Grant in 1872 would argue he had obtained some stature.

Would you have any direct evidence for the rank of General.
Thanks again.
