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 cemetery 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.

Dr. James Dougal Bissell
Whitner "Whit" Nutting Bissell's info says his father was a NY surgeon Dr. J. Dougal Bissell. I found where you are contributor to Dr. Bissell's find a grave info. It only shows one son, Bradford Bissell. However, Whit's middle name is the maiden name of Dr. Bissell's wife, Helen Nutting Bissell. This leaves a curiosity for me; do you know if there is a connection that Whit is also a son to Helen and Dr. James?

Thanks for any info you might have and can share.

RE: William Withers
2/23/1974 in a letter addressed to Tradd St. Charleston from Martha Brunson Guerard page 2. " As for the Withers ancestors, I found the marriage settlement between Willis Wilkinson and Eleanora Withers at the Archives. I paid a local genealogist for a "paper" he had done on the Withers family which consists of abstracts from official records."

RE: William Withers
William Withers married Anna Bella MacDonald, a twin. They had three daughters. These girls were raised in Charleston by their father's brother, I forget, maybe Robert or Francis Withers. Their mother was the daughter of Rev. War Major Adam MCDonald ( the first American Spy). and Isabella Fitch. She was married three times, once to a British officer Yabrough(?) and married again and removed to Alabama. Elenor or Lenora in parish records, married Dr. Willis Wilkinson of the Isle Of Wright, son of Lucy Goodwin and Mills Wilkinson, I believe I recall. Eleanor's daughter AnnaBella married Rev. Paul Trapier Keith. Their son Dr. John Alexander Keith married Harriet Hay Oakman, their daughter Adeline Hay Keith Brunson was my maternal grandmother. Will keep you in mind as I come across more Withers info recorded in found genealogy papers.

RE: William Withers
Mother's sister, Martha McBee Brunson Guerard (1916-1980), was our family's genealogist. She helped organize the state's first genealogical society and the state genealogical society and Founding Families of SC. She was sent to Salt Lake to gather information and also went to SC Parishes, churches, court houses, etc for information. Often she had to be accompanied by a member in good standing with the church in order to see first hand records. She made multiple genealogy charts and was indexing original SC names when she died and her work " disappeared" I have discovered copies of a lot of her work and I am putting it on the internet. Page by page, I mark them done. I have at least 800 loose papers and 13 family history manuscripts, and several published family history books to reference. From memory, I think the Withers information was in Prince George, Winyah records. Also, " Family Revolutionary War Soldiers" paper, William is listed as Captain, " One of Marion's Men" Lived in Prince George Parish, one of several brothers in the area. Was Justice of the Peace in 1785. Good Luck.

RE: Dr. John A. Keith
page 40 " Episodes in my life and those of My Three Doctors" written by Adeline Hay Keith Brunson, Dr. Keith's oldest daughter. On Sunday Jan 2, 1901 Papa said, " I feel so good, I want to take the buggy for us to hear the Rev. Copeland preach at the Methodist Church at Tillery's Ferry. Papa had set the Rev. Copeland's leg the summer before.... after service they were invited to dinner. After grace was said, he had his third and fatal stroke and died the next day at Rev. Copeland's home. Dr. Keith, my father, is buried in this Methodist Churchyard at Tiller's Ferry, about eight miles from Bishopville, and about six miles from Bethune. My mother had a tombstone put up to his memory. page 41) My father and his sister Mary Pauline Keith died a few months apart. So his sisters had his name placed on her tombstone in St. Michael's church yard, near the entrances to the Sunday School"

Appreciation !!
My Gram got me started with ancestry research 50 years ago. I could never do the volume you have provided for us. I only work with my family history. Thank you for responding to edits and questions so quickly. It means a lot to me and my kids.
Blessings,
