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 found out on January 21, 2010 that internment's of Old Third Central Presbyterian Church Cemetery have been moved to Riverview Memorial in Charleston.

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: Chapin
The actual text of the suggestion should be coming to you through the "EDIT" feature. After I realized that I could simply email it to you, I attempted to copy and paste it but the suggestion is already submitted. It has to do with one sentence toward the beginning in the first portion of the bio where it states, "Thomas Chapin settled at Roxbury..." Thomas was an older brother of Samuel's and died around 1626 in Paignton, England before the Samuel came here. It seems that it should state, "Samuel Chapin settled at Roxbury..." as that arrival is well documented. However, it's just a suggestion, but based one that is based on a substantial amount of research.

Thanks for your quick reply!

Rev Edwin Hubbell Chapin Memorial# 90864932

First, thank you for your impressive body of work here at Find-A-Grave. I'm sure that it has assisted a great many researchers and family members of those memorialized here who may or may not appreciate the effort that goes into this level of volunteer work.

Second, I wanted to bring your attention to a suggestion I just submitted to Memorial# 90864932, Rev Edwin Hubbell Chapin. Along with Rev Chapin, I, too, am a descendant of Deacon Samuel Chapin being his 8th great grandson. I grew up quite near the Saint-Gaudens statue of the Deacon in downtown Springfield and do a great deal of research at the Museum of Springfield History on the same campus.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at

RE: Major's Stone & Corbin
This is the reply from the Charleston library:

Good afternoon, Mr. Cook.
Thank you for contacting the Charleston County Public Librarys South Carolina Room. Due to an increased demand and the reduction of library staff, we will charge all non-Charleston County residents a research fee of $5.00 per question and $0.50 per copy sent. A copy of our full research guidelines, including attendant fees, is attached to this email (see also below).
Charleston County residents: Please acknowledge receipt of this email and resubmit your question along with your Charleston County Public Library card number or your postal mailing address.
Out of county residents: Please acknowledge receipt of this email and resubmit your question with your postal mailing address.
*Depending on the amount of material to be sent, the South Carolina Room staff will either mail paper copies or send email attachments at their discretion.
Thank you.
Katie Gray

Seems everyone seeks to capitalize on those of us seeking public information.

RE: Major's Stone & Corbin
Thanks for the response and recommendation.
Spent the day, Tuesday, in Charleston...Charleston library, SC Historical Society and their section in Addleston library at the College of Charleston. The Society had six file boxes full of handwritten letters to and from
and Corbin. They were most difficult to read, since they are written in Ole English script and the many I read pertained to letters requesting political favors.
Not a total wasted trip, but very little new information.

Thanks Again

John you might want to look at the obituary from Yale, ok. It is not a picture of Jacob but information about him and his life.
