Charles Town was first laid out in 1 672, and a large 
lot at the southeast corner of Broad and Church (sub- 
sequently Meeting) streets was reserved for a church. 

Upon this lot the first St. Philip's Church was erected 
about 1 683. But there were probably interments made 
on this lot even before the first church was erected, for 
after the earthquake of 1886, while some workmen 
were repairing the foundations of the present church, 
they discovered a cedar coffin, with the date 1 678 and 
the initials J. O. B. studded on the lid with brass tacks. 

In 1711 a new church was commenced upon the site 
occupied by the present St. Philip's, and this church 
having been completed and occupied by the year 1 727, 
the old church was in this latter year taken down, but 
the lot continued to be used as a burying-ground. 

The Act for establishing St. Michael's Parish was 
passed June 14, 1 75 1 , and the church was commenced 
in 1 752, upon the site of the first St. Philip's. 



I wish to express my appreciation of the 
assistance given by Mr. A. S. Salley, Jr., in 
the publication of this book, and to thank all 
who have helped with it in any way, or have 
shown a kindly interest in my work.

Died suddenly of Stranger's fever 

Novr. 5th. 1843. 

Aged 22. 

Of all thy kindred at thy dying day 
Were none to speed thee on thy solemn way; 
Yet ever lives distinct and deeply dear 
Their sight with them of this thy corner here ; 
Each heart so oft hath come and sought and seen 
That Ocean space hath shrunk to naught between. 
And more their own seems now the stranger's shore 
Than when with thee they dweh on it before. 

Since God doth early break the golden bowl. 
And loose the silver cord that links the soul 
To earth, His will be done. Oh, may he rise 
A chosen vessel to a heavenly prize.

English poet, Arthur Hugh Clough, and his eldest brother, 
Charles, wrote the last four. Both were brothers of George

She was modest, but affable. 

Pious, yet unaffected. 

During three years sickness, She was 

never heard to repine. 

As a Child, She was obedient: 

As a Sister, affectionate: 

As a Friend, Sincere. 

While an Infant she was baptized 

in the Episcopal Church; 

And at the age of Fourteen received the 

Holy Communion. 

Her only hope, for Salvation, was in the 

blood of atonement. 

In the last scenes of her life. She afforded an 

example to the young and to the Aged. 

When she expired, it was in the attitude of 

Prayer, And without a struggle or a groan. 

As Angels exulting wafted her soul to Heaven 

So her Friends cheerfully consigned 

her body to the Tomb ; 

Confident that thus sown in 

weakness and corruption 

Would be raised at the last day, in 

incurruption, and Glory; 

Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. 

GLORIA DEO.

Beneath this Marble, 

the too perishable Monument of a Widow's Love, 

are deposited the bones and ashes 

of ROBERT Y. HAYNE. 

No sculptured stone is needed to perpetuate 

the memory of this illustrious name. 

The Archives of his Country 

are ennobled by his Honors, 

and his public services are stamped 

for Immortality 

Upon the face of his native state, 

and upon the Institutions of the Union, 

It is the smitten Heart 

that would would relieve its anguish 

by this record of his rare virtues, 

his real nobleness, his incomparable excellence. 

That heart alone can know how far 

The Wisdom of the Statesman, the eloquence of the Senator, 

and the courage of the Hero 

were transcended by those sublimer qualities 

which made him the Idol of his Wife, 

the Pattern of his Children 

the guide of his Friends, 

the honest, incorruptible Patriot, 

The Wisdom which counselled Nations, ruled his Home, 

The Tongue which swayed the People, charmed his Fireside, 

The Heart which nerved a state, allured his Household, 

His Widow and his Children 

could find no consolation in his loss 

save in the humble hope 

that they have given him up to that God 

who is the Father of the Fatherless

No son of South Carolina 

Was ever more cherished by his noble Mother 

Than the subject of this memorial. 

Her honors were heaped upon him in early 

and rapid succession. 

Elected at his majority to her House of Representatives 

He soon became its Speaker; 

And was thence transferred to the responsible 

station of Attorney General. 

When just old enough to claim his seat. 

He was chosen to represent Her 

In the Senate of the Union. 

Having eloquently vindicated her Principles, 

In her moment of extreme peril, 

She entrusted her Honor to his keeping, 

laying upon his shoulders 

the burden of her Government. 

No sooner was the sword sheathed 

than she summoned him to advocate the interest 

of her Agriculture and Commerce. 

In the fulfillment of these trusts 

He sacrificed his Life 

having lived long enough for his own fame : 

having died too soon for his Country's good.

JURIST. ORATOR, STATESMAN, PATRIOT. 

Future times will hardly know how great a life 

This simple stone commemorates, — 

The tradition of his Eloquence, his 

Wisdom and Wit may fade; 

But he lived for ends more durable than fame. 

His eloquence was the protection of the poor and wronged 

His Learning illuminated the principles of Law — 

In the admiration of his Peers, 

In the respect of his People 

In the affection of his Family, 

His was the highest place; 

The just meed 

Of his kindness and forbearance. 

His dignity and simplicity 

His brilliant Genius and his unwearied industry, 

Unawed by Opinion, 

Unseduced by Flattery 

Undismayed by disaster. 

He confronted Life with antique Courage 

^ And Death with Christian Hope. 



In the great Civil War 

He withstood his People for his Country, 

But his People did homage to the Man 

Who held his conscience higher than their praise; 

And his Country 

Heaped her honours on the grave of the Patriot, 

To whom, living. 

His own righteous self-respect sufficed. 

Alike for Motive and Reward.

Was that genuine filial love 

Which in its duties finds its pleasures. 

The principles 

Which should govern his conduct. 

Were sought in the precepts 

of our holy religion; 

For in very early youth he had been led 

to acknowledge before the world 

Him who is "The way, the Truth, the Life," 

And through Whom 

"Death is swallowed up in victory."

In the Ninetieth year of his age. 

For many years an eminent lawyer 

In this city, he was not less admired 

For his knowledge which was various 

And profound, than for 

Those qualities of heart and mind 

Which made it honorably & practically useful 

Preferring the calm of retirement 

To the distinction of public life. 

He rather shunned than sought office : 

And was as remarkable for declining. 

As many are, for courting its honors 

But the appointments which he did accept 

Both elevated and responsible, 

Were discharged with learning. 

Ability and fidelity. 

He submitted patiently to the infirmities 

Of age, and died with the resignation 

of a Christian.

She was liberally endowed, 
With the qualities of the head, heart. 
And person, which most adorn and endear 
The loveliest of her Sex ; 
These were rendered the more estimable 
By her discreet, moral and pious conduct. 
In her life she was therefore much beloved. 
And at her death much lamented. 
But her afflicted husband and children 
"Sorrowed not as those without hope." 
For they were by this hope consoled. 
That GOD had willed to translate her. 
From this frail and fleeting existence 
To one of everlasting bliss. 
And that by His grace they may so live 
Here, as to be reunited to her hereafter.

To Commemorate

of 

MISS ANN F. SIMONTON 

who died on the 1 st. day of Sept. 1 828, 

The South Carolina Society 

Have erected this Tablet. 

Recommendations from the most respectable 
sources of the high attainments of this lady 

induced the Trustees of the Academies 

established by the Society to select her as 

the Principal of the Female department. 

Urged by a pious sense of filial duty 

To contribute to the comfort of an aged mother 

she sought the responsible office, 

and in a short time fulfilled the hopes 

which her reputation had authorised. 

To an energy not inconsistent with the 

character of the softer sex 

She added an urbanity, which tempered 

without impairing her discipline. 

The interesting objects of her care 

acknowledged the justness of her decisions 

whilst they were grateful for the mildness 

with which these were enforced. 

Zealous and cheerful in the discharge 

of her duties, she won the studious application 

of her admiring pupils, whose innocent tears 

consecrate the memory of her Virtues, 

and afford the best illustration 

of her eminent worth.

To meet — its just reward on high.
