I have added these memorials, mostly from the historic cemeteries of Charleston to memorialize all the individuals who have contributed to Charleston's past.

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 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.

Through my research I have found that 7 of his decendants have been South Carolina Governors.

Charlotte Bacot - Rosedale Cemetery
I was able to find one more Bacot stone for which you did not have a photo and have added it.

I just added a photo of him with the fencing coach, which is now the first one. Would you please move it down below his portrait and his niche? I thought it an enhancement, but not in the prime position.

RE: Edward P. Wilder
Yeah, it looks like the contributor might be a "collector". I noticed she hasn't transferred very many memorials out of the thousands that she has created. She will probably be reluctant to let go of it. Good luck with that!

Edward Payson Wilder
The volunteer photographer got back to me and said that the Woodlawn Cemetery records did not indicate the name of the cemetery where Edward Wilder was re-interred. I am sorry. I know you were hoping for a name. Maybe you could just add a note to the Find A Grave memorial that you created for him.

Thank you!
Thank you for your efforts and dedication! I have so enjoyed learning about my ancestors and have you to thank for helping deliver visuals and evidence for my journey into Charleston ancestry!

RE: Albert Goodwin
Yes, you are correct. You were first. I sent the same "duplicate" message to the creator of the other memorial for Albert. In my opinion, the second one in should defer to the this case your entry should survive. I chose to let you both know with the hope that you two would work it out. Let's hope the other Findagraver will offer to remove his/her entry. Thanks for putting graves on Findagrave. I find these things so helpful to me in my family tree work. J. Keith Cook in Omaha.

Walker Prioleau Rivers III
Dear Saratoga,
I am seeking a transfer of memorial 33363875, Alice Rivers, St. John's Chapel Cemetery to my account 47706477.
Alice was an infant sister to my great grandfather, James Philip Rivers. I would very much like to link her to her father, Philip Gendron Prioleau Rivers (unmarked grave in Branchville SC) and mother, Mary Jane Bartless Rivers (Magnolia, Charleston).
Her birth (17 Dec 1844) and death (19 Feb 1847) are noted in her mother's hand in their family Bible, which is now in my care.
Many, many thanks.
Walker Rivers

Julia and Frederick Potter
Julia 42569737 and Frederick 42569725 are your memorials. I recently created a memorial for their mother Eliza Potter 147437578. I was doing genealogy research on this Potter family who erected a Civil War monument in Beaufort National Cemetery on which an ancestor of mine is named as one who was tended to by Eliza and died at the Race Course Prison in Charleston. I am not related so not interested in a transfer. Just FYI
