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.

RE: John Alexander Keith
My great grandfather John Alexander Keith, Md was not a junior. His father was the Rev. Paul Trapier Keith. He did have a son John Alexander Keith, who died at age 4. You must have a relative of my great grandfather. He was married to Harriet Hay Oakman Keith- daughter of Wellington and Adeline Davis Hay Oakman. Their children who survived childhood were my grandmother Adeline Hay Keith Brunson, Anna Wilkinson Keith Ryan, Willis Wilkinson Keith and Harriet Hay Keith Edwards. The family's habit has been to write family history books of which I have eleven not published and 4 published.

You have her parents and siblings listed-but they are not hers. They are the parents and siblings of her husband. I do not know the correct information, but thank you for correcting this.

Helen Grimball Howland Whaley
Memorial #44279638
I have been doing research for the Grimball family of Charleston County, South Carolina. They have a family bible that states her birth name as Helen Trenholm Grimball. She was born 21 November 1879. See her page on WikiTree that I have created:

She was the daughter of Henry (Harry) Morris Grimball and Helen Emily (Trenholm) Grimball.

She must have had a first marriage to Howland, but I haven't found it yet.

Thank you in advance for your kindness and capturing this information.

Deborah Paulin Hampton
My name is Deborah Paulin Hampton. I stumbled upon this information while searching I was looking up information from some old stories my mom told me about him while she was alive. She was the niece of Alonzo. My grandmother was Alonzo's sister, Essie Twine. In May of this year, I was in Charleston looking for his and his mother, my great grandmother's Phillipa Twine gravesite. I was unable to locate it. I will be in Charleston again in August. I will surely make sure I am able to pay my respects. The story of his life told to me by my mother, is totally a different one I have read. I feel so fortunate that I have finally found him! Thank you all for keeping him alive!
