|I have added these memorials, mostly from the historic cemeteries of Charleston to memorialize all the individuals who have contributed to Charleston's past. The rich history of these individuals and their families encouraged me to memorialize their memory for all those interested. |
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.

Will add a detailed biography of this Confederate physician, but given the holidays, it probably will not be within my usual week.
Many thanks for the transfer.
|Karl Plenge||RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 27389319 Augusta L Middleton|
Thank you so much, that is huge because I have never been able to go back past the generation of Jordans that entered this country from Ireland. I will definitely look for the book!
I have some notes I can give you on some of the folks in Magnolia, plus some others on findagrave. My great grandfather is Edward Watson Jordan (Find A Grave Memorial# 44215531), who served on the CSS Palmetto State following his service in the CSA Army, which you have listed. You have his mother as Catherine, but on her marker she is listed as Miss. I believe she was Edward's father's sister, but I have no evidence of this, it is just a guess based on where she is buried. Census records show Edward's mother was Sarah Shea Jordan (Find A Grave Memorial# 41547259), whom you also posted. She is listed as wife of Edward, and my notes from Magnolia in 2002 indicate he is buried nearby, although it is not fresh in my mind any more.
The children of Edward and Sarah are:
Augusta who married Charles Middleton
Margaret about whom I know nothing further
Sarah (Find A Grave Memorial# 68801459) who married Rev W J E Fripp
Elizabeth about whom I know nothing further
Catherine who married William McCarroll
Ephraimina (Find A Grave Memorial# 41630550) who married W B Boinest
William about whom I know nothing further
You have linked Edward Watson to Nellie and Etta, who was my grandmother. Edward's other children are:
Helen (Find A Grave Memorial# 35932303)
Ephie (Find A Grave Memorial# 35997006), who was married to my grandfather before Etta and died as a result of a pregnancy
Ida May who is buried in Magnolia but does not have a marker
Edward who married Lucy Pollock
Harriett (Find A Grave Memorial# 44476434)
Francis (1886) who died in infancy burial unknown
Luke (1888) who died in infancy burial unknown
Thank you again for letting me know about the book!

I was also wondering where you got the birth information for Augusta? Thanks again, Karl
|Karl Plenge||Find A Grave Memorial# 27389312 Charles F Middleton|
Hi, thank you for all of the work you have put in on findagrave. Relative to Charles F Middleton, I wondered if you have any additional information about the blockade runner on which he served?
|Gary Yawn||thank you|
Thanks for the quick turnaround and transfer.
|Anna O'Quinn Richter||RE: Richardsons|
Thank you for leaving that last message. The main reason I was upset was that I felt I had hurt my credibility with you and that you would be reluctant to accept my SACs from now on. So your message made me feel a lot better.
Thank you, John.
|Anna O'Quinn Richter||RE: Richardson's|
No! I didnt know you were joking! I thought you were serious. I really was so tired I couldnt think straight and the Richardsons and Juliana's started blurring. I shouldn't be on Find A Grave when I'm sleepy. So was Anne Cantey Sinkler Richardson the wife of the first governor? His wife has to be buried somewhere.
|maureen fitzpatrick||Inez Beckett Andrews|
Thank you! She was nee Beckett from Hampton, South Carolina.
|Anna O'Quinn Richter||RE: Julianna Richardson|
YES-I blew that one big time. So ignore.
But I found a site: http://www.singletonfamily.org/getperson.php?personID=I6091&tree=1
That has some great info. I sent a couple of SACs (because why send ONE when you can send a bunch) about Ann Cantey Sinkler Richardson you can verify on that site.
So sorry about the mistake-
|bioengineer||Dr. John Bee Holmes|
I have added a detailed biography for this Confederate physician and linked him to his father. I would like to link him to his mother, but his father was married twice and I'm not sure which lady was Dr. Holmes' mother.
Thanks for the transfer.
