It's very common for a cemetery to be known by several different names..!

 

If known, alternate names will be noted somewhere on the county's webpage listing. 

 

Contact Gary Flynn at garyflynn44@yahoo.com, if all you know, is your cemetery's general area.

 

Cemetery names will normally be listed in alphabetical order.   Ex: Brown-Jones-Wilson Families 

 

Surnames will normally come before given names.   Ex: Brown Family, John 

 

Plantation names were not ordinarily shown on the Census. Using plantation names to locate ancestors can be difficult because the name of a plantation may have been changed through the years and because the sizeable number of large farms must have resulted in lots of duplication of plantation names.

 

Plantation nicknames names, if known, will normally be listed as aka (also known as).

 

It's assumed that if a plantation had over 100 enslaved workers, that there would have normally been a separate cemetery for them.  Often landowner's family graves might be located nearby, but always kept separate. 

 

Plantation homes were often burned after slave emancipation, because the landowner could no longer afford to pay their land taxes. 

 

Historical home locations can normally be determined by locating their existing foundations.

Research Notes:

 

Charleston County and the city of Charleston, its county seat, are the most historic locations in the state. English settlers arrived in the colony of Carolina in 1670 and established a town at Albemarle Point on the west bank of the Ashley River. The settlement, named Charles Town in honor of King Charles II of England, was subsequently moved a few miles away to a peninsula between the Ashley and Cooper rivers. Charles Town (renamed Charleston in 1783) was the political, social, and economic center of South Carolina throughout the colonial and antebellum periods, and it served as the state capital until 1790. Charleston District was formed in 1769, but portions were later split off to form Colleton (1800) and Berkeley (1882) counties. Present day Charleston County includes the old parishes of St. Philip, St. Michael, Christ Church, St. Andrew, St. John Colleton, and part of St. James Santee. English and French Huguenot settlers and their African slaves built indigo, rice, and cotton plantations along the area's rivers and on its sea islands, while merchants of many nationalities made Charleston one of the busiest ports on the Atlantic. During the Revolutionary War the American forces defeated the attacking British fleet at Charleston in June 1776; a palmetto log fort (later named Fort Moultrie) on Sullivan's Island withstood the British cannon balls, and the palmetto tree was subsequently given a prominent place on the South Carolina flag. At another Charleston fort, Fort Sumter, federal troops were fired on by Confederate forces in April 1861, signaling the start of the Civil War. Charleston County has had many famous residents, including three signers of the United States Constitution: Charles Pinckney (1757-1824), Charles Cotesworth Pinckney (1746-1825), and John Rutledge (1739-1800). Other residents include architect Robert Mills (1781-1855), writers DuBose Heyward (1885-1940) and Archibald Rutledge (1883-1973), slave leader Denmark Vesey (1767-1822), abolitionists Sarah Grimke (1792-1873) and Angelina Grimke (1805-1879) , scientist Ernest Everett Just (1883-1941), and civil rights leader Septima Poinsette Clark (1898-1987).  (Submitted by: SC State Library / Mary Morgan, 31-Mar-2008)
