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: Edward Weirman
According to the register of military officers, Eugene H. Weirman, who was Johnson's secretary, resigned his commission effective 1 Dec 1869. I believe that health reasons drove his resignation. The attention from women possibly the reason for his divorce - coupled with the long travels. Also cross checking, earlier reports put his native state as MD despite living in DC for many years, and the 1850 census puts his nativity as PA. When I crop the alternate death article, I will upload.

Was a witness at a trial in which Elijah Willis' family were fighting his second will. He was given the title "Dr." in 1857. Was he a doctor? Thanks, Carol
