Bio and Links
Since retiring in 2000 I have undertaken the task of locating graves of as many descendants as possible.
(1) Of my mother's oldest ancestor, Jonathan Whilden, who entered Charleston 1695.
Whilden, although, essentially an unknown name now, played a historical part in the Civil War from relaying the order to fire the 1st shot of the war to leading the defense at The Bloody Angle-Spottsylvania Courthouse.
(2) Of my fathers oldest ancestor, who entered Charleston 1768 with his family from Killyleagh, County Down, Northern Ireland. Many of these migrated west to Georgia, Alabama, & Texas.
As indicated I retired in 2000, live in SC, have a wonderful wife of 52 years, 2 children and 2 grandchildren that like all grands I love to be obnoxious about.
Will gladly take pictures for any looking in this area.

Hey SEM, you'll have to contact Nancy about removing the "unmarked grave" picture because I didn't add it. Sorry

Reference to memorial 20551954

You've got a photo on there.. That grave was marked with a note that it was an unmarked grave.. Your photo from 2016 is just a blank patch of ground..

There *IS* a memorial for it. And, from the looks of the marker.. it's been there for quite some time. You can look at the photo I took this weekend.. Perhaps because the Find A Grave memorial had the name listed under her second husband, and she was buried with the first? I've submitted a name correction to the maintainer, as policy says that they should be listed by the name on the memorial.

Anyway.. I'll leave it to you whether you want to keep that photo up. I really don't think that was ever unmarked, but I could be wrong. just.. Making you aware.

RE: Greenwood Cemetary Request
Thanks for searching. As you enter the cemetery from Cascade Road, follow the main road and bear left at the first fork, Follow the left fork up the hill; it makes a sharp right turn at the top of the hill. The Jewish section will be on the right. Bear left at the next fork (really continue straight). Just beyond the next intersection there is a short wall on the left with some steps. The Briant plot is on the left near the wall. Please take pictures of Beulah and Paul Briant. The Crane plot (Thomas and Stella) is across the road and beyond the large plot of the typographers union. The Crane marker is a large granite marker with a rough surface. I hope this helps.
