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.

Helen Cooper
Memorial transfer
Hi!
If you are not a direct descendent of Frederick Shaffer, #60220255, please transfer this memorial to me: Helen Cooper #48047025. He is my 4th great-grandfather. Some of the information on his memorial needs to be clarified as all are not buried there etc. I have added a couple with correct locations.

Thank you so much for doing this work as this memorial helped propel me in the right direction of my family research!

Thank you,
Helen Cooper

Lost your email. Yup, looks like I hyper-focused on the family composition. I sent links for his parents so no information will be lost. Gladly, he is not one of the parents, because reconnecting would have been a nightmare for me. Sorry about that John. Jacki

Sarah S Hazlehurst Houstoun 93391668
Hi. I noticed that in your record 93391668 you have stated that Sarah Houstoun is the daughter of Robert and Elizabeth Plant. Sarah's parents are actually Robert Hazlehurst, Jr, and Elizabeth Petingale Wilson Hazlehurst, Wilson being her mother's maiden name. One of Sarah's sisters married Increase Cook Plant, so that probably accounts for the confusion.

RE: Baxter family Mr. Auburn
You're very welcome! It's definitely starting to get colder around here - I drove to work in snow flurries the other day - but no accumulation...yea!!! I always try to fill as many requests as possible before it starts covering the ground because it makes it difficult sometimes to find stones or even get to them...but I do get there :)
Happy Thanksgiving
Best, Sharon
