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.

so sorry, John, I can't get into my old account to remove the photo that I added. Is it possible for you to do so?
They're not mine but belong to older friends of mine.
Thank you

RE: Annie Saylor
Thanks, just downloaded it.
Is there a way that you can remove my "name" from the photo of James Mitchell died 1831. Thank you for your help in that and for the great work you have done on findagrave. When I was researching for my mother,my our postings helped me so much!
Thanks again

Alice Margaret Croak
Good morning,

I hope this message finds you well.

Thank you for all of your work entering valuable information into Find a Grave. I was recently in Charleston, SC and visited Magnolia Cemetery. One of the graves that I noticed was Alice Margaret Croak's. 6/18/14 - 7/2/1915. I noticed that she is listed on Find a Grave as being buried in St. Lawrence Cemetery. I thought that you might want to be aware of this and make a correction.

Thank you again for all of your work!

Memorial# 75774554
Find A Grave Memorial# 83613200 is the accurate transcription for John Philip Holland (no "s") not the way Affiliate Record Identifier 75774554 says.

RE: Lucia Grainger
Hi, there. May I ask how you found Lucia's parents' names? I have records from the Charleston Orphan House saying that W. C. Grainger married widow Lucia Brown and the two boys (Wm. and Geo.) who were in the Orphan House were indentured to him and Lucia. I find no record of a marriage of Lucia to anyone and her death cert. says she is a widow, presumably of John Brown.

May we exchange notes? Please reach out to me at Thanks:-)

RE: McGarey
hmmmm..........Francis listed as father. Possible, but not a certainty.

Ah well, no answers, and more questions. Isn't that always the way?

Thanks for your help. I'm sure some day I'll find an answer to this and all the other bricks in the wall that are my own family too.
