RE: Machpelah cemetery
I recently worked on a project in northern Florida where the city wanted to plow up a cemetery in which were buried former slaves and the descendants of those individuals. I did some research on the individuals buried in the cemetery along with a coworker. We, and others involved in the project, were fortunate enough to persuade the "town fathers" that the cemetery needed to be preserved and not destroyed. They now have fenced it in and put up a commemorative marker.

I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving, too.

RE: Machpelah cemetery
I just did a Google search and found this on Rootsweb:
Hi, Machpelah Cemetery is mentioned frequently in the early 19th century Charleston Return of Deaths. The only one "nearby" that has that name
presently is in North Carolina--too far away to have been the site of these
burials. Does anybody know its location and fate? Regards, Peggy

PS Machpelah is the name of Abraham's burial place, named in Genesis, in
Hebron. The name has been used by both Jews and Christians as the name of a
burial ground.

Machpelah Cemetery, Lincolnton, N.C. -- This is from http://chicora.org/cemetery-projects.html

No. I have no idea. Did you try to Google search it using different spellings?

Hi,
I got the picture you requested for WIlliam Fridie. I also added a picture for his wife, Fannye to her existing memorial.
Have a good one...

RE: Louis Christian Cemetery
Hi
This memorial was transferred to me by a contributor who is no longer doing Find a Grave.
I have no idea wherer this cemetery is located I have lived in Charleston County most of my life and have never heard of it. There is no listing in the Charleston phone book. I assume by the name it is most likely a family cemetery.
Wish I could be of more help.
If this is a family member I will be happy to transfer to you.
Thanks
Ann
