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

If I don't respond to a request for transfer it means I prefer to retain the memorial.

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.

RE: Fanny Knighton
Thank you for quick response!

Fanny Knighton
I have an ancestor, Frances E (Fanny) Knighton b. 1844 died 30 Dec 1928. Her sister Mary Jane Knighton's obituary says she is buried at Woodlawn, as is their brother William R Knighton (you also made his memorial, thank you!)
Wm. R'Knighton, their father died 6 days earlier than Wm. R and their brother Albert died 5 mos later of Typhus, all in 1869. Their mother Jane S, died May 1899. I'm wondering if you have access to Woodlawn burials? (I live in Ca. and am unable to travel)
I'm thinking the whole family is buried there, but have no way of checking.
Woodlawn didn't answer my queries.
I'd so appreciate it if you can help with any information. Thank you in advance!

Domino Sugar's Havemeyer family
I actually own a history and ghost tour company in Charleston. I appreciate your efforts in the Holy City. I stumbled upon you looking for my great great grandmothers origins. Her name was Anne Havemeyer Lee. She was a heiress of the Domino Sugar empire and unfortunately died in 1901 giving birth to my great grandfather, Lee Jeffreys, in Gramercy Park. I'm an avid golfer and grew up in New York State, and I'm trying to figure out if I came from the Mayor of NYC or the Havemeyer that started the US open. I was hoping you could help a newbie out. Maybe point me in the right direction because I can't figure out where she came from. Thanks
P.S. My daughter is named after Eliza Heyward in Magnolia Cemetery.

Joseph Whitfield
In your record for Joseph Whitfield, there is this note:

Note: SCHM Vol. 22-23 Page 90.
Can you tell me what it refers to or where to find it?

Also, where did the info come from that he was from New Bedford? Is there any particular info showing this?

Col Richard Parker
Dear Saratoga, You have Col Richard Parker listed as being buried in St Philips Cemetery in Charleston, SC ( Record added: Dec 27, 2013
Find A Grave Memorial# 122248684) The Col was killed April 24,1780 during the siege of Charleston. During dialog with the church administrator there is no record of such a grave site upon this location. Please share with me the source for this memorial stating this location. I will be traveling to Charleston next month and I would very much like to get a photo of the headstone for the family.

Elizabeth Dilford Blyer
My apologies. I just now realized I made a duplicate of Elizabeth Blyer, #134310886. Would you like me to transfer all the info over to yours and then I'll remove it, or would you want to copy all the info and then I'll remove it. She's a relative of mine and I made the memorial using Dilford originally and that's why I never caught my error. I'm really sorry.

Thank you for all of the work you have done. Please change the name of Jennie Maner Rice, Magnolia Cemetery, Charleston, to Emma Jane (Jennie) Rice. She was the sister of my grandfather, John Ogilvie Maner.

Bernard Doran Killian
Thanks so much for your contributions that are helping us all. I am a hobby genealogist but have done research for an old friend who descends from Bernard Doran Killian of New York. I recently searched to see if I could find a grave marker for him in New York. How great to see the picture and bio for Bernard Doran Killian that you posted. I don't know the source of the picture, but the spelling of the name Doran is incorrectly shown as Dorian. Doing a Google search for this man will bring up many times when his name appeared in print and each time it is spelled "Doran" including his own signature from a St. Louis Missouri document. Would you please edit his name to the correct spelling of Doran. Bernard Doran Killian was named for his uncle, Father Doran, an Irish Catholic priest. Thanks again for all the great work you are doing.
