INTRODUCTIOX. 



The value of tombstone records for the purposes of 
the historian is not yet fully appreciated. Some day, 
when it is too late, we shall awake to a sense of our 
neglect. Apart from its intrinsic value, the following 
record is printed in the hope that others may be led 
to do likewise. 

There are three old cemeteries in Charleston 
whose origin antedates the nineteenth century, though 
most of their tombs are modern. These old ceme- 
teries contain many inscriptions of great historical 
interest and which throw a valuable side-light upon 
the early history of the Jews in America. Time has 
borne heavily on many of these stones, many of 
their inscriptions being decipherable only with the 
greatest difficulty. This is due, to some extent, to 
the old custom of having flat slabs. Several of them 
I have literally unearthed and many are no longer in 
existence. 

I have thought it well for the sake of completeness 
to include all three cemeteries in this volume, and I 
have added such historical data as will make the 
record complete. 

The oldest cemetery at Coming Street is laid out in 
rows more or less regular. The inscriptions are 
copied in order and the location of the tombstones is 
therefore quite easy. I have not followed the in- 
scriptions line for line, for that would have neces- 
sitated a much larger volume and, while adding 
perhaps to its appearance, would not have enhanced 
its value. My object has been to preserve the record 
and not to perpetuate the eccentricities of old-time 
tomb-stones. I would only add that I have several 
times compared my transcripts with the originals. I 
can assure the reader of the absolute accuracy of 
each and every one of them. 



The cemetery at Coming Street is the oldest Jewish 
cemetery in South Carolina. It was originally pur- 
chased by Isaac Da Costa, the first Hazan of Beth 
Elohim, for a private burying place for his own 
family. "Finding that it would be a convenient place 
for the Burial Ground of the Jews' Congregation in 
general," he, "out of regard for the said congregation, 



became willing and desirous, and did afterwards intend 
that the same should be conveyed in trust to the con- 
gregation." Carrying out his original intention. Isaac 
Da Costa, conveyed this burial ground in 1764, for a 
consideration of seventy pounds lawful money of the 
province, in trust to certain trustees" for a place of 
burial for the use of the Jews residing in Charles 
Town or elsewhere within the Province of South 
Carolina, who do and shall conform to the Jewish 
rites and ceremonies in general, and who do and shall 
conform to and observe the rules, orders and regula- 
tions of the Jews congregation in Charles Town named 
Beth Eloim." 

The following are the trustees mentioned in the 
deed: 

Joshua Hart, Immanuel Cortissos, Joseph Da Costa 
and Samuel Da Costa, of Charles Town, and mem- 
bers of the Jews congregation in Charles Town known 
by the name of Beth Eloim. 

Benjamin Mendes Da Costa, Joseph Salvador, Esq., 
Solomon Da Costa, Moses Franco and Joshua Mendes 
Da Costa, of the city of London, and members of the 
Portuguese Jews congregation in the said city known 
by the name of Sahar Ashamaim. 

Jacob Lopes Torres, Isaac Mendes Furtado. Benj- 
amin Dias Fernandes, Isaac Henriquez and Abraham 
Aguilar, of the Island of Jamaica, and members of 
the Jews congregation in King's Town in the said 
Island, known by the name of Sahar Ashamaim. 

Isaac Piza, Benjamin Messia.s, David Castello, David 
Lindo and Isaac Pinheiro, of the Island of Barbadoes, 
and members of the Jews congregation in Bridge Town 
in said Island, by the name of Nidhe Israel. 

Jacob Franks, Daniel Gomes, Benjamin Gomes, 
Isaac Mendes Seixas and Heyman Levy, of the city of 
New York, and members of the Jews congregation in 
that city known by the name of Schorit Israel. 

Moses Lopes, Moses Levy, Naphtali Hart, Jacob 
Rods. Rivera and Aaron Lopes, of New Port, Rhode 
Island, and members of the Jews congiegation in 
the said Island known by the name of Yeshuat Israel. 

Benjamin Sheftal, Mordecai Sheftal, Minis Minis, 
Lsaac De Lyon and Levy Sheftal, of the Town of 
Savannah in the Province of Georgia, and members 
of the Jews congregation in the said Town of Savan- 
nah, known by the name of Mikve Israel. 

The deed is recorded in the office of Mesne Con- 
veyance, Vol. C 3, p. 108 sq. 



The Coming Street Cemetery. 



This Stone is Erected to the Memory of 
ALEXANDER SOLOMONS, 

A native of Poland, who, after spending a life pro- 
longed beyond the allotted portion of man, in acts of 
piety and goodness, closed this mortal career on the 
7th July, 1836, aged 80. 

"The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, 
to all that call upon him in truth." 



Sacred to the Memory of 
MRS. BELLA A. COHEN, 

Consort of Barnet A. Cohen, who departed this life 
.at King Creek, S. C. on the 16th October, 1836 aged 
44 years. 

This stone was erected by affectionate children to 
mark the spot where repose the remains of a beloved 
parent who was honored in life, and mourned in death. 

"Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain; but a wo- 
man that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised." 



Sacred to the Memory of 
CECILIA SOLOMONS, 

Consort of Alexander Solomons, who departed this 
life on the 25th August, 1839, aged 74. 

How delightful is the contemplation of the virtues 
of the departed! And well can we indulge this feeling 
on reviewing the life of the revered being whose re- 
mains here repose. She was the virtuous woman, 
"whose price is above rubies, and whose children rise 
up and call her blessed," for the precepts of God were 
in her heart and Avere made the rule of her conduct 
through life. Her survivors can truly exclaim in the 
words of Holy Writ: "Let me die the death of the 
righteous and may my last end be like hers." 



Here Repose the Remains of 

BARNET A. COHEN, 

A native of Bristol, England, who died at King Creek, 
S. C, on the 23rd March, 1839, in the 70th. year of his 
age. 

To commemorate the virtues of a beloved parent, 
and as a memorial of their love and veneration, this 
stone has been erected by his affectionate children. 

"Blessed be he whose God is the Lord; behold, the 
eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon 
tiiem that hope in his mercy."

as a wife truly affectionate, and as a friend, sincere.

Where purest spirits in soft union roam, 
This thought, the wounded heart of friendship heals 
And at the loss dew resignation feels."

spirit into the presence of that Almighty Being he had 
so fervently adored.

of his age. 

Beloved in life for his purity and rare virtues, so in 
death was he universally lamented. Too pure for this 
world, his spirit early sought a more congenial sphere. 
And what a happy assurance of heavenly bliss, did his 
last and pious words convey, 

"Be not uneasy father — I am prepared to die."

NOTE. 



Adjoining the old cemetery and on a somewhat 
higher level, is the burial ground of the old Shearith 
Israel congregation. The introduction of the organ into 
the new synagogue of Beth Elohim in 1840, divided 
the congregation into two sections. The orthodox par- 
ty, having appealed to the law courts in vain, seceded 
and formed the Shearith Israel congregation. So bitter 
was the feeling between the two parties, that inter- 
course between them hardly existed. The seceding 
section went so far as to purchase their own burial 
ground. This was walled off from the old cemetery 
of Beth Elohim. After the re-union of the two congrre- 
gytions in 1866, the cemeteries were likewise united 
and the dividing wall puHel down. The following 
are the inscriptions in this portion of the ground:

Adjoining the preceding portion of the burial ground, 
Is the small private cemetery of the Lopez family. 
Some objections being made to the burial of the wife of 
Mr. David Lopez. She having been boi'n a Christian 
and never having been formally accepted into the 
Jewish faith, he purchased his own ground. This was 
originally walled off from the cemetery, and had its 
own entrance. It is now a part of the cemetery. Here 
are its inscriptions.

The Da Costa Cemetery. 



The early history of this cemetery, which is situ- 
ated between Hanover and Amherst streets, is in- 
volved in obscurity. It originally formed part of Lot 
48 of Hampstead, but in spite of much research, I have 
been unable to trace its successive owners. 

In a codicil to the will of Sarah Da Costa, the widow 
of Isaac Da Costa, made on October 7, 1793, she directs 
that her executors "do purchase out of my estate, 
eighty feet square of a lot of land, situate in Hamp- 
stead, which I give and devise to my executors to be 
held by them and their heirs, or by such persons as 
they may appoint, for the sole purpose of being a 
burial gi'ound for my family and the Portuguese Jews." 
[Wills, Book C, 1793-1800, p. 63.] 

This ground, however, must have been the property 
of the Da Costa family many years before this because 
Isaac Da Costa, the elder, was buried there in 1783 and 
Joseph Salvador in 1786. as well as other members of 
the Da Costa family. It was consecrated in 1786, as we 
learn from the following quaint notice in the Char- 
leston Evening Gazette of February 3, 1786: 

"February 3d. 1786. 

Yesterday the Portuguese Jewish Congregation of 
this City, called "Beth Elohim Unveh Shallom" or the 
House of the Lord and Mansion of Peace, proceeded to 
their burying ground in Hampstead, in order to lay the 
F"oundation Stones of the Wall ; — after the usual 
prayers were performed. 

The first stone at the N. E. corner was laid by Mr. 
Joseph Da Costa. — The second ditto at the N. E., ditto, 
by Mr. Isaac Da Costa.— The third ditto at the S. W. 
ditto by Mr. Joseph Depallacios. — The fourth ditto, at 
the N. W. ditto by Mr. Joseph Benzakin. — The fifth 
ditto at the S. post of the gateway, by Samuel Da 
Costa. — And the sixth ditto at the N. ditto by Joseph 
Abendanone. 

A number of gentlemen attended the Ceremony, who 
expressed their satisfaction at the decent solemnity 
observed on the occasion." 



104 

It will be noticed from the above that the name of 
the congregation is referred to, not as "Beth Elohim," 
but as "Beth Elohim Unveh Shallom — a corroboration 
of the suggestion I made in my pamphlet reprints, that 
the name of the congregation was originally "Beth 
Elohim Unveh Shallom" and that it was called "Beth 
Elohim" for short. [See my "Jews of South Carolina" 
IV, 1783-1800, pp 8-9.] It is of course within the bounds 
of possibility that there were formerly two societies 
or congregations which afterwards amalgamated. 
There is no evidence for such a supposition, however, 
and it is exceedingly improbable. 

This burial ground has had a chequered history. 
After the death of Isaac Da Costa, who died intestate 
in 1783, the property passed into the possession of 
Joseph Da Costa his "survivor and administrator." 
In 1809, in consequence of a suit against the estate 
of Isaac Da Costa, this property was levied upon by 
the sheriff and was sold at public auction to the 
highest bidder. It was bought in by Isaac Da Costa, 
the younger, for .$500 sterling. [See Mesne Conveyance 
Records, Vol. X9, p. 394.] 

In 1809, it was conveyed by Isaac Da Costa to Eman- 
uel De La Motta, Jacob De La Motta and David Aben- 
danone, Trustees for the Portuguese Jews, "in trust for 

and purpose following, that is to say: in trust, 

that the said lot of land shall be kept as a burial 
ground for the said Portuguese Jews and to and for no 
other purpose or use whatever." 

In 1820, it was still the private burial grovmd of the 
Da Costa family — witness the following from the 'Con- 
stitution of Kaal Kado.sh Beth-Elohim" of 1820: 

"There shall be one congregational burial ground 
only, wherein all the deceased members of this congre- 
gation shall be interred, provided that this law shall 
net extend to any family place of interment already 
established * * * * 

This law considers the Burial Ground, heretofore 
called the Da Costa's, to be properly belonging to the 
family of Isaac Da Costa, Senr., deceased, into which 
his near relations are permitted to be interred and no 
other person, not even such persons as have relations 
already deposited there. * * * [Rule IX.] 

In 1828, Jacob De La Motta, the only survivor of the 
trustees appointed in 1809, having resigned his trust, 
other trustees were appointed: Abraham A. Massias, 
Abraham Ottolengui, Ralph Canter and Edwin Canter. 



105 

On September 27th, 1847, two of these trustees — 
Ralph Canter and Edwin Canter having meanwhile 
died, Abraham A. Massias and Abraham Ottolengui 
renounced their trusteeship and conveyed the cemetery 
•'to the President and Trustees of the Hebrew Syna- 
gogue of K. K. Beth Elohim, on the express condition 
that ten feet square within the said burial ground be 
perpetually reserved for the use of the said Abraham 
A. Massias for interment or otherwise as he may di- 
rect, next to or near the spot where were interred th« 
remains of the Salvador family, and also, that tei^ 
feet square will in the said burial ground be perpetu- 
ally reserved for the use of the said Abraham Otto- 
lengui, for interment or otherwise as he may direct, of 
any part he may select." 

The deed, is recorded in the office of Mesne Convey- 
ance, Vol X9, p. 396 sq. 

This cemetery is now used as a free burial ground 
for the Jewish poor, though there rest within its walls 
some of the most distinguished Jews who ever lived 
in South Carolina. Three of the flat slabs adjoining the 
tomb of the illustrious philanthropist Joseph Salva- 
dor, are missing. They were apparently stolen and may 
be now adorning another cemetery or serving as 
hearthstones in some of the shanties that abound in 
the neighborhood. These slabs once covered the re- 
mains of members of the Da Costa family and I have 
been able to identify the graves through the before 
mentioned will of Sarah Da Costa, who directs in the 
codicil above quoted, that "tombstones be purchased 
and placed over the graves of Mr. Moses Pimento, my 
mother Deah Pimento and my two sisters Mrs. I. Cohen 
and R. Da Costa." 

The following are all the inscriptions that remain 
in this old burying ground. Many of its tombstones are 
in pieces.

The Cemetery at Hanover Street. 



This private Jewish cemetery, whose origin ante- 
dates the nineteenth century, was practically unknown 
in Charleston till I called attention to it. How I came 
to find it I have told elsewhere. (See my Pamphlet 
Reprints "Old Jewish Cemeteries.") It is strange that 
this cemetery is not mentioned in the Constitution of 
Beth Elohim of 1820. 

This ground was conveyed in 1798 by Betzje Hen- 
rickson to Henry Moses, Solomon Moses, Meyer Derk- 
heim, Samuel Hyams, Benjamin Tores and Solomon 
Harby in trust "as a burying ground and place of in- 
terment for the said * * * and their descendants, 
and also such other person and persons professing 
Judaism, as the Trustees for the time being or a ma- 
jority of them shall for that purpose approve of." A 
further clause is added "that the Trustees above 
named and the survivors of them and their successors 
shall for ever be incapable of selling, disposing of, ali- 
enating, transferring, exchanging, dividing or giving 
up the premises aforesaid from the issue, descendants 
and families of the original trustees aforesaid, so as 
to exclude them from interment therein, to any person 
or persons, sectary or sectaries, society or societies, 
congregation or congregations of whatever description 
or denomination." 

This deed is recorded in the office of Mesne Convey- 
ance Vol W6, p. 397 sq. The following are the inscrip- 
tions on the tombstones:

NOTE. 

Here and there in the foregoing pages, the order of 
the inscriptions has had to be changed to meet the 
exigencies of the printer. It should also be noted that 
there are about half a dozen tombstones with Hebrew 
inscriptions in the Coming Street cemetery which have 
been omitted owing to the fact that they cannot be 
identified.
