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 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.

Campbells in St. Mary's, Charleston
In spite of the Name "Campbell" on their gravestones, I believe that these folks are Patrick CANTWELL and Lydia Lucas Cantwell. (Lydia Lucas was the daughter of John Lucas and Ann King Lucas, who are interred in the cemetery at the Cathedral of St. Luke and St Paul in Charleston. ) Patrick and Lydia Lucas Cantwell were the parents of John Lucas Cantwell, who fought in the Mexican War, the War Between the States, and the Spanish-American War, and rose to the rank of Colonel. During "The Late Unpleasantness", he became a prisoner of war, and along with approximately 600 other Confederate officers, was transported from the Federal prison at Fort Delaware aboard the ship "Crescent" to Charleston harbor, where their ship was moored in front of the Federal Artillery Battalion on Morris Island (to act as a human shield for the Federal troops during the bombardment of Charleston). After Charleston fell, the prisoners were transported to Fort Pulaski, GA, where they were held under very inhumane conditions. They ultimately came to be known as "The Immortal Six Hundred".

Thank you for all the good work that you are doing !!

I was wondering if you may have a written transcription of the headstone on this memorial? It's a beautiful photo but maybe the original would be easier to read. Thank you in advance for your anticipated response.

Eyre Coote - Westminster
Newspaper reports state his remains were taken back to England and he was reburied in Rockbourne (#160682242) on 16 Sept 1784. Westminister Abbey is a cenotaph.

David and Mary Hawkshaw

I am adding a memorial for David Hawkshaw on the Woodlawn cemetery as according to his death registration that is where he is buried. I will link him to Mary.

Thanks again for all your help.
