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: Francis Withers
John, I agree with you. I think both should be listed; I just wanted to note that isn't what findagrave recommends. But I can't see the harm in it, and it would be perfectly clear. Please go ahead and create your memorial at Northampton. You can mention that he has a cenotaph plaque at Prince George Winyah. Does that sound OK?

Francis Withers
Hi John, thank you for your suggestion about Francis Withers, who is said to be buried at Northampton plantation with a cenotaph at Prince George Winyah. I checked the FAQs at findagrave. If I read their rules correctly, they give the cenotaph precedence (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=listFaqs#81). I have written to them to mark my memorial as a cenotaph.

They don't want two memorials for the same person, but I understand your desire to have one for Francis Withers at Northampton. If you want to create a memorial there with the information you think it should have, I won't object to that.

Let me know if you think we need to discuss it further. Thanks!

RE: Mary Hanckel.
John,

Nice memorial and thanks for alerting me to the correct surname of Hanckel rather than Henckel.
I linked her to her first husband, Thomas Louis Ogier, Jr. through the latter's memorial.

RE: Mary Henckel.
John,

Great news about your finding Mary Henckel's grave. I'd appreciate it if you would add a memorial for her and then let me know her number. I'm trying to focus on Confederate physicians which is almost a full time job.

Thanks, Terry

I've transferred him back to you, John. I've got an obit I put together from numerous articles that I would like to send you to use or not use as you see fit. Please email me at Onewally@aol.com. Thanks!

John,

Anna's message to me about this Confederate
physician was in my SPAM box and so I just
discovered it this morning. I immediately
transferred it to her and it is my understanding
that after she adds some additional biographical
material she will transfer it back to you. As you
may have noted, our register of physicians who
served the Confederacy in a medical capacity
had a good deal of information on Dr. Kinloch
which I added to your memorial back in June.

I have long admired your memorials, especially those related to South Carolinians who served
the Confederacy. Keep up the good work.

RE: George Miler/Coralie Bland
My findings were the same. It is always helpful to have more than one pair of eyes!! Thanks so much.
