|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.

Hello... I've picked up the correction message from yourself but I can only find one record that I've created for the above.... could you let me know where the duplicate is please and I'll correct it.
|Steven M||George W. Vanderbilt (#130329385)|
A helpful photo volunteer (Jackie Territo, #48072787) at Moravian Cemetery just informed me that the Vanderbilt section where he is buried is not accessible to the general public. Would it be possible to make a note of this on his memorial page?

You have linked Helen J. E. Thurston Hubbard to the wrong mother. Helen J. E. Thurston Hubbard was the daughter of Daniel Thurston and Jane Shackley. She was not the daughter of Caleb Thurston and Jane Sargent. I submitted an edit suggestion to you stating that she was not the daughter of Jane Sargent Thurston to which you have assigned.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you very much for correcting this (Caleb and Jane are my direct ancestors).

|Ethel A Swanson||RE: Waties in St Phillips Cemetery.|
Thanks so much.
|Ethel A Swanson||Waties in St Phillips Cemetery.|
Thank you so much for your kind offer to go back to take a better picture. I know that you had copied the transcriptions not only from the stones and other sources, but DAR only believes what they can see. I will see if the library will copy the pages that I need from the WPA project. Thanks for your assistance.

I am a Chapter Registrar for Charles Dibrell Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. We use a lot of cemetery records for proofs of birth and death of the generations closest to the Rev. patriot. Unfortunately, DAR will no longer accept Find A Grave unless they can read the picture of the tombstone. You have pictures and transcriptions of the tombstones of Julius Pringle Waties and his wife Anna Elizabeth Rives Waties. When you took the photos could you read the inscriptions or did you get your information from earlier transcriptions of the cemetery? DAR will accept early transcriptions of the cemetery - I would appreciate any information of where I might find a transcription. Thank you so much for your time and all the work you have done on Find A Grave. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org

I saw your message, and I send you a suggestion to just copy and paste what I have. Please let me know when complete so that I can my memorial and make it for someone else.
|Bob McLellan||RE: Wood|
Thank you very much for the transfers of Moses and Mary Wood.

Thank you - Anne W. Brown, Trustee, NYMC
