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.

RE: Franklin Israel Moses, Gov.
The Edit category is still there, but under that, on my screen,

"suggest any other correction or addition"

is not available. I've never seen that before.

RE: Franklin Israel Moses, Gov.
Since he is "famous" (or infamous?), is that why the edit feature is not offered? (I never saw that omitted before.)

Franklin Israel Moses, Gov.
I tried to send you a suggestion via "edit," but that link was not available (never saw that happen before). I have finally unearthed the name of SC Gov. Franklin Moses' 2nd wife and child. The wife is Emma Rice, m. Feb. 26,1878; child is Frances T. Moses, b. May 26, 1880 in Manhattan. Unfortunately, I have not found the wife or child after 1880. Still looking.

Re Abraham Wetherhorn
Hi John
The earliest date I have for Katie Wetherhorn as a Widow is 1887. I assumed that Abraham died shortly before that. I am curious about your family connection to Abraham. I have over 6000 names in my family tree, many only very distantly connected.
Abraham had a lot of descendants. Many are still in Charleston or Mt Pleasant. I would like to know more. I can give you a direct e-mail link if you would like to pursue this.
Unlike Abraham, I really did move to Israel, but I am the only Wetherhorn who did so.

Aryeh (Lee) Wetherhorn

Thank you for including Abraham Wetherhorn, even though there is no record of his death and burial.
I find the possibility that he went to Israel to be extremely unlikely. He worked as a saddle maker and harness maker. With a wife and 4 children to support (5th died as an infant) there would have been little left to pay for such a trip. The US Consul in Jerusalem (then a Turkish province) recorded the names of US citizens whose bodies had been sent to Jerusalem for burial. Abraham is not listed among them. He was my great grandfather's brother.

I figured out how to add siblings to the memorial I had written to you about. Thank you anyway!I haven't been able to add two brothers, yet, because I don't know their final resting places. But I will be able to add them soon.

Thanks again!

Dear Saratoga: I have added the information you suggested, plus a little more. Thanks, JdeT

He was the father of Harriett L. DeTreville (1783-1818) who married first, January 6, 1801 in Beaufort, Robert Guerard (1775-1805) and married second, Samuel Lawrence (1781-1822). He was also the father of Robert LaBoularderie deTreville (1782-c1817) who married Sarah McKee Ellis (Findagrave Memorial 32127802) daughter of Richard Ellis, planter, also on January 6, 1801.
