Bio and Links
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.

CORRECTION
Saratoga,
First, thank you for your work with Find a Grave, however, I would like to request that you correct an error.

I came across a reference to a Richard Harleston (1889-1934), who is buried at Unity and Friendship Cemetery in Charleston, SC. His wife is listed as Elizabeth Lewis Harleston. This information is erroneous. Richard's name was Richard Harleston Mickey (his parents were Hannah Harleston and Edward Henry Mickey), and his wife's last name was Mickey -- not Harleston. They are buried with the Mickey family. The headstone says Mickey, but the surname does not appear with the individuals buried there.

I was at Unity & Friendship in November examining this very plot, because my great-great-greatgrandmother, Kate Wilson Harleston, is buried with the Mickeys, as well. (As noted previously, her daughter Hannah married a Mickey.)

I would appreciate your correcting this error. (If you would like further confirmation, the family tree is in a book called "The Sweet Hell Inside," by Edward Ball.) You can reach me at gentry.mae@gmail.com. Thank you.

Verify this Agnes
This Agnes Robertson died in February 1914 at age 86. I noticed that you record it as July. I then noticed the name of her husband was different. This is the only Agnes Robertson interred at Woodlawn who died in 1914. If it is wrong, notify me so I can remove the photo.
