Burials Alphabetical

Explanation

This alphabetical listing of all the known burials in the St. Peter’s Graveyard is a reasonable place to begin any search for the grave or epitaph of a particular person. It is particularly helpful if one is curious about demographics such as age at death or country of origin.

The entire document is the PDF linked at the end of this page, but the screen shot below is shown just as a sample for explanation of the document contents. The full document lists names of about 400 deceased persons. Here are what the column heads mean:

Photo: “OK” if the marker is located and a picture is posted. “Missing” if the marker has not been identified in 2020.

WPA Pg: Information on markers documented in 1936 was published in WPA Document E79 on file at the South Caroliniana Library on the campus of the University of South Carolina. WPA Document E79 page numbers on which epitaphs can be found are in this column.

GRID: The approximate location on the grid map of the cemetery published on this website.

DOB/DOD: Self explanatory but just years are noted. Many markers give month and day of death. Birth information is missing from most. Age is calculated from (YOD-YOB) so may be off by a year or so. Some markers say a person died in the nth year of life. In those cases, the age is listed as (n-1).
