Leland S Greene
You took a photo of Leland S Greene's gravestone. I wonder if I could bother you for another take, as the stone is partially covered by flowers. Its okay to move them, so that we can see the complete stone. Leland's father would be my Great Great grandfather, so Leland is my Great Uncle. Would like management of his memorial unless you're a relative. Thank you for your time and volunteer efforts. It is truly appreciated!

RE: James Earl Allen Drayton
But there was nearly $1.2 million to benefit the families of the fallen firefighters. Plus $100,000 from Leary Firefighters Foundation. And The store owner set up an Education Scholarship for the 7 Firefighters children.

Why didn't Charleston pay for all nine headstones? OR the State?
The headstone that looks homemade is so sad. Also the lack of maintenance on one grave is horrific.

You commented on James Drayton’s headstone:
“You would think this individual would have received a better headstone, what a shame"

Check out these other Fire Officers that died in the same Furniture Store Fire:

Rodney Bradford “Brad” Baity Find A Grave Memorial # 19977196

Mark Wesley Kelsey Find A Grave Memorial # 19977182

Why do some of the 9 Firefighters have elaborate headstones and other have nothing or basic?

Gerald J Maguire in New Cathedral
HI Mike,
I just discovered a Vietnam KIA who is buried in New Cathedral Cem. I see that you have taken photos there. If it is convienent, next time you are there could you please help me out. His # is 146558212, and I called and got his burial location. Your findagrave contributions are so wonderful. My need for Gerald's stone, helps me complete a memorial book for the men who survived in his Company during the Vietnam Era. Gerald has another memorial which has not been updated to include the cemetery, but I plan to ask for a merge after I get the stone photo. If he is buried ext to parents or other Maguires, please advise.

Thanks so much for any help you can give.

Hi Mike, I had not heard back from you concerning the transfer of my Father in laws Max Albert Dick's memorial to myself. As you can see I went ahead and added his grave marker. I hope in the future you will consider transferring his memorial. I have several other bits of information to add, plus pictures. I also wanted to let you know where his death was. It was at his home in Gloucester VA. Thanks John Ainsworth

Hi. Do you have a family connection with the Frederick Fischer family or was he just one of the graves in Bethany Cemetery? My cousin is a descendant. Thanks. Grace

Find A Grave Memorial #46975444
This site, listed for J. A. Lilienthal is plot #718 Bethany Cemetery, Charleston SC. It was purchased Aug 24, 1894 by J. A. Lilienthal, (Johanne Andreas Lilienthal), the father of my maternal grandfather, Julius J. Lilienthal (deceased). ). Although Johanne is not buried here, as he disappeared during the early years of the depression, this is the final resting place of his wife, at least 3 of his children and a grandson, who are all named on the cemetery records.
One child died before this plot was purchased and two other children who died later are said to be buried here also but are not listed in the cemetery records. None of the graves are marked however older relatives have said that all the children that died are buried here.
I have the names and dates for them if you would like to add them for others who may be interested in this information.

RE: Foley/New Cathedral Cem
There probably is a connection somewhere, my mother is a Bell from Philadelphia. Anna May is actually my dad's step-mother. His mother died young and Anna May was my grandfather's 2nd wife and the grandmother that my sisters and I grew up knowing. She had no children of her own. Neither did her brother Eddie or sister Catherine. I think that their parents William and Annie Foley are also buried in the same plot at New Cathedral, as well as Eddies wife whose name I can't remember. Thank you for the transfer, I will take good care of them!!!!
