...The superscript next to the name implies the location of the grave.  Veterans buried within this cemetery

ANDERSON, Maj James,702 b. ca 6 Mar 1748, d. 9 Sep 1813; (Notes: This information from R. W. Simpson, "History of Old Pendleton District; with a Genealogy of the Leading Families of the District", published 1913, pp. 174-180: James and his more famous brother Robert were two of the sons of John and Jean Anderson who came from Ireland to Philadelphia, PA, and then on to near present day Staunton, VA, in about 1735. James married Agnes Craig of Augusta County, VA, on 10 Dec, 1771, and after the Rev. War moved to Pendleton District, SC, in 1786 or 1789. Old Pendleton District Genealogical database shows parents born in New York and Indiana, respectively, and the names of all 11 children, including a Margaret, who from the location of the graves, is undoubtedly Margaret Hamilton, the wife of Maj Andrew Hamilton. See p. 19, Bobby G. Moss, "Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution" for some details of his war service.)

ARCHER, John Prior,506 b. 12 Dec 1806, d. 3 Jul 1849; (Notes: h/o Malinda Hamilton, (not buried here, maybe in Pickens Co.

ARIAIL, Chloe Chimelia Ives,302 d. 14 Feb 1844; (Notes: w/o John Harvey Ariail. The stone speaks of a daughter, Eliza; however, she is not buried here. Correspondence with the family members who placed the new stone with said memorial indicates it is strictly a memorial. She may be buried somewhere in Pickens County, SC, or maybe in TN. They also had a son, John Harvey, data unknown.)

Married 12 Feb 1824 in Pendleton District, SC. s/o Richard and Martha (Patsy) Wilson Burdine. Richard Burdine was the s/o Samuel and Mary Fletcher Burdine. Martha Wilson was b. ca 1780 and was the d/o John Wilson, and his unknown wife. John Burdine was the father of Esther Dick B. Smith, and Martha Ann B. Pickens.)

DAVIS, Child,804 b. ?, d. ca 1860-1865; (Notes: This is one of a pair of twin unnamed and otherwise unknown children of a man, maybe a Methodist minister named Perry Davis.)

DAVIS, Child,805 b. ?, d. ca 1860-1865; (Notes: This is one of a pair of twin unnamed and otherwise unknown children of a man, maybe a Methodist minister named Perry Davis.)

DAVIS, William,1809 Pvt. Pickens Co., Goodwyn's SC Mtd. Militia, Florida War, 23 Jul 1869; (Notes: I have no further info, but I suspect he is tied somehow to the Davis family of the wife of the "patriarch" Robert Pickens. There are several Pickens-Davis connections of previous generations that could have been parents/grandparents of this Davis.)

DICKSON, James,1802 b.?, d.? Pvt. S.C. Militia, Rev War; (Notes: Traditionally thought to be brother of Michael Dickson. See Bobby G. Moss, "Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution", p. 255 for his notes on Dickson.)

DOTHARD, Mrs. Mary C,808 b. 1803, d. 2 Jun 1857; (Notes: She was undoubtedly related somehow to the Peggs, but it is unknown how, maybe as a younger sister to John Pegg or younger sister to his wife, Sarah. More information is needed about this entire family, as most of the information I've been able to find is clearly speculation based on tombstone location and dating.)

EARLE, child,1807 b. ?, d. ?; (Notes: This was a child of unknown gender of an otherwise unknown Rev. Earle, probably a Methodist minister of Pickens Chapel during the mid-1800s).

ELROD, (unnamed infant),317 Inf./o J(ohn) H. & I(da) L(ee) (Pickens) Elrod, b. 26 Jul 1908, d. 26 Jul 1908; (Notes: The mother is the d/o William Smith and Prudence Emeline Oliver Pickens. Father b. 20 Mar 1861, d. 1930, mother b. 7 Nov 1867, d. 18 Aug 1944, neither buried here, possibly at Bethesda Methodist Cemetery in Powdersville Community east about 8 miles.)

FARMER, McDuff,1803 b. ?, d. 1840; (Notes: Fieldstone with rough engraving: "MF" and "1840". There are several Farmers listed in Moss, but none with this first name. Most were from the eastern part of the state.)

GARRISON, Lura Agnes Pickens,117 d/o R(obert) W(elborn) & Kate (Mary Catherine) Pickens, ( w/o Henry D(avid) Garrison, b. 28 Sep 1893, d. 17 Feb 1981, "She Now Sings In God's Choir"; (Notes: Husband b. 28 Jan 1893, d. 21 Feb 1953, buried in St. Paul Methodist Cemetery, 5 mi. northeast. They were married 15 Apr 1920 at Mt Pisgah Baptist Church, 1 mi. south by her brother, Rev Dr. Andrew Lee Pickens. She was sister of Francis Marian P. Martin,  Truman Welborn Pickens,  Robert Martin Pickens.)

She was b. 28 Oct 1904, d. 30 Jan 1960. They were married 8 Mar 1924 and are buried in Mt Pisgah Baptist Church Cemetery, about 1 mi. south. Ella is dau. in law of Lura Pickens Garrison.)

HAMILTON, Maj. Andrew,704 b. 17 Jan 1772, d. 1 Oct 1849; (Notes: h/o Margaret Hamilton. Grandfather of Margaret Hunter. Old Pendleton Genealogical Society Database shows him to be the s/o David and Jane Rennick Hamilton. But it also shows his wives as being Mary Gunn and Mary Ann Eliza Stokes, with the former obviously being mixed up with Margaret Hamilton, as Mary Gunn is listed as having the same death date; and the latter being married to Hamilton in 1841 with no further information. I think the Mary Gunn is probably in error, and Margaret Anderson is the correct name of the first wife. Certainly the position of the tombstones have to be given some credence in this matter, as Margaret  is buried next to Andrew.)

HAMILTON, Cyntha,802 b. 28 Apr 1806, d. 30 Jun 1809; (Notes: d/o Maj Andrew and Margaret Anderson Hamilton. Take note that the tombstone spells the name "Cyntha" without any "i" as most genealogists do. Which is correct? I don't know, but when all else fails, go with the marble engraving. Many names were unusual by our standards in those days.)

HAMILTON, John,903 b. Aug 1756, d. Nov 1822, Pvt. SC Militia, Rev. War; (Notes: See Bobby G. Moss, "Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution", pp. 405-406, for seven possible John Hamiltons who would fit. Old Pendleton District Genealogical Database shows John to be s/o David Hamilton, b. 1725, Lanarkshire, Scotland, d. 1801, York Co. SC, and Jane Wallace Hamilton, b. 1730, London, England, d. Pickens District, SC.)

HAMILTON, Margaret,703 consort/o Maj. Andrew Hamilton, b. 6 Aug 1782, d. 4 Nov 1822; (Notes: w/o Maj Andrew Hamilton. It is almost a certainty that she is the daughter of Maj James Anderson. See the notes for Maj Andrew Hamilton.)

HENDERSON, Robert,1601 b. 15 Jun 1762, d. 29 Sep 1840, PVT Hampton's Co. 6 SC Regt. Rev. War; (Notes: b. York Co, PA. Wife: Mary ___, died in Walker Co, GA. See Moss, p. 436 for details.)

HUGHES, Micajah,1006 b. ?, d. ?; (Notes: Fieldstone is clearly engraved "MH". Traditionally considered to be a Revolutionary War soldier. No reference in Moss, but that is not conclusive. In the Old Pendleton District Genealogical Database, there is an Andrew Micajer Hughes that fits, b. 4 Apr 1755, d. 1 Sep 1843. h/o Obedience "Biddy" Sumner, b. 1765, d. 1829. Both are recorded as being buried in Pickens Cemetery. There is an Andrew Hughes in Moss' book, p. 471. This will work, but is it right. I think so, but it was unusual for people to use their middle name in that era, so I am suspicious, hopeful, but suspicious.)

HUGHES, Obedience "Biddy" Sumner,1005 b. 1765, d. 1829; (Notes: see Micajah Hughes, for comments on this name. The grave has always been known to be the wife of Micajah Hughes. Whether this is the correct name or not is to be determined. I hope so, as it would solve another mystery. But bear in mind, this identification is strictly a MAYBE - A GUESS.)

HUNTER, Margaret,601 b.15 Apr 1833, d. 6 Aug 1839; (Notes: granddaughter of Maj Andrew and Margaret Anderson Hamilton. She was the d/o William and Sarah Ann Hamilton Hunter, neither of which are buried here.)

JOHNSON, Robert A(ddison),102 b. 26 Jun 1918, d. 14 Mar 2002, SP3 US Navy WWII; (His real name is Robert Addison Pepper. s/o Addison Guinn Pepper and Hattie Kay. Hattie took Robert and William Guinn Pepper and abandoned their father in 1925 and lived with them somewhere in southeast Texas. After she died (15 Sep 1980), the two brothers came looking for their father and found him still alive. The marker is memorial only, as both were cremated after being killed in an automobile accident.)

JOHNSON, Robert Benjamin,103 b. 28 Sep 1930, d. 15 Mar 2002, SK 3 US Navy; (Notes: His real name is William Guinn Pepper and the true date of birth is 28 Sep 1922. He was a WWII veteran. s/o Addison Guinn Pepper and Hattie Kay. Hattie took Robert Addison Pepper and William and abandoned their father in 1925 and lived with them somewhere in southeast Texas. After she died (15 Sep 1980), the two brothers came looking for their father and found him still alive. The marker is memorial only, as both were cremated after being killed in an automobile accident.)

MARTIN, Mattie Lee Price,113 w/o Russell Martin, b. 22 Sep 1909, d. 26 Nov 1936

MARTIN, Russell Gale,112 b. 12 Oct 1905, d. 22 Apr 1941; (Notes: s/o Rev. George A. (not buried here) and Frances Marian Pickens Martin)

MARTIN, Frances Marian Pickens,114 b.25 Jul 1870, d. 13 Oct 1922; (Notes: d/o Robert Welborn and Mary Catherine Wigington Pickens. Sister of Truman Welborn Pickens, Robert Martin Pickens, Prudence Irene Pickens, Lura Agnes P. Garrison. Mother of Russell Gale Martin, w/o Rev. George A. Martin, not buried here.)

MAULDIN, Charlotte Hamby,1102 b. ?, d. 18 Sep 1862; (Notes: w/o Laban Mauldin. See notes under him for interest and explanations. Charlotte is reputed to have been born in VA.)

MAULDIN, Laban,1101 b.4 Feb 1787, d. 1869; (Notes: Old Pendleton District Genealogical Database lists him as the s/o Rev Rucker and Susannah Miller Mauldin (2nd Wife), but the numbers won't work out right. There's no time for Susannah Miller to have been the wife of Rucker Mauldin, much less have a child in 1787. It's logical to see Laban as the s/o Rucker Mauldin, but could have been that Susannah Miller was the first wife, but all the children would have to be reworked if that were the case. Or maybe there was no Susannah Miller in the picture at all? Laban's wife is listed as Charlotte Hamby, and is buried next to him. Tradition had it that Laban was a contemporary of Rucker, with both of them from GA, and both being in the Rev. War, but I could find no evidence of Laban's service, and with a birth date of 1787, it's easy to see why. It is somewhat puzzling that full grown adults, dying at the time Laban and his wife are said to, according to the OPD database, have no tombstone. There are many that don't, but

MAULDIN, Nancy Posey,1208 w/o Rev. Rucker Mauldin, b. 20 Mar 1769, d. 1 Dec 1849; (Notes: d/o Francis (b. 1730, d. Dec 1787, Union District, SC) and Mildred Farr Posey. Possibly mother of Laban Mauldin?.)

MAULDIN, Rucker (Rev),1207 (b. 18 Jan 1760) d. (16 Jan) 1846, PVT SC Militia Rev. War; (Notes: b. in Cecil Co. MD. h/o Nancy Posey. Father of Laban Mauldin?, Image File: CG-1101. s/o Henry Laban (b. 1732) and ___ Rucker (b. 1731) who married in 1756. Most data from Old Pendleton District Genealogical Database.)

McCANN, Hannah (Linn),1403 c/o Robert Mc Cann, b. 1765 d. 1 Oct 1802, Age 37. "in Memory Of"; (Notes: First w/o Robert McCann, probably died in conjunction with childbirth complications as so many did in that time. No children have been found from this marriage, but the dates suggest a marriage in ca 1780s, so there must have been some.)

McCANN, Infant,1404 b. ?, d. ?; (Notes: This grave has traditionally been considered to be that of an infant child of Robert and Hannah McCann of unknown gender and unknown date, but it is marked with a fieldstone with no apparent engraving.)

McCANN, Jane (Hamilton),1402 w/o Robert Mc Cann, b. 1763 or 1764 d. 10 Jan 1831, aged 67 years; (Notes: Married 15 Mar 1806. She was d/o David Hamilton and Jane Wallace, and sister of John Hamilton, and sister of Elizabeth Hamilton Boggs. She is reported to have had a 1st husband, ___ Boggs, maybe a brother of Aaron Boggs,but nothing possitive is known.)

McCANN, Esq., Robert,1401 b. 1 Jan 1764, d. 17 Jun 1831, Native of Killileagh, Ardegon, Ireland; (Notes: 1st wife: Hannah Linn, 2nd wife: Jane Hamilton.

Rosamond and John lived in the old Rosamond home place on Three Bridges Rd. on the way to Greenville, a well known landmark.)

OLIVER, Alexander,1007 SC Pvt. SC Militia, Rev. War; (Notes: b. 1744 in Ireland, d. 1816. See Bobby G. Moss, "Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution", p. 741, for details. h/o Mary Slaughter? or Warner? Father of Dr. James Oliver.

Father of: David Alexander Oliver, Antionette Oliver Bowen, Prudence Emeline Oliver Pickens, Mary Lou Oliver, Aurelia Adelaide Oliver Rosamond.)

PEGG, Bailey McSwain 908, b. 26 Nov 1862, d. 18 Sep 1863; (Notes: Infant s/o James Bailey and Elizabeth Welborn Pegg.)

PEGG, Elizabeth (Welborn),709 b. 26 Jun 1817, d. 5 Dec 1864, "In Memory Of"; (Notes: There is much to be discussed about this Elizabeth. Dr. A. L. Pickens, in his 1930-1933 survey of the cemetery learned from his father (Robert Welborn Pickens 1847-1948) and his grandfather (William Smith Pickens 1823-1907) that this was indeed Elizabeth Welborn Pegg, the w/o of James B. Pegg, not a sister of James B(ailey) Pegg or a possible second wife of James Pegg, Elizabeth Barton (the dates are much too suspect). This entire Pegg family need some serious, sincere research besides someone just looking at tombstones and trying to match dates.  The only squirrely thing is that Elizabeth Welborn's stone shows her having died in 1854, and Bailey M. Pegg, a son of James and her being born in 1862. The best probability is that Elizabeth's stone is a "misprint" and should reflect "1864" as her death year, not 1854. This squares with the Welborn family data that is years old and is Robert Welborn Pickens' handwriting." Elizabeth Welborn was the 5th child of Moses and Sarah Halbert Welborn. There is a monument to them in Big Creek Baptist Church Cemetery in Williamston, Anderson County, SC, but they are not buried there, but Moses Welborn is buried in/near Tuscaloosa, AL, and Sarah Halbert Welborn is buried in Shubuta, Clarke County, MS. The other questions will be addressed under James. Elizabeth was a sister to Julia Welborn Pickens.)

PEGG, James B(ailey),708 b. 10 Mar 1812 in Hardin Co., KY, d. 26 Sep 1885 in Anderson County,SC; (Notes: h/o Elizabeth Welborn Pegg. Father of Willam Martin Pegg (not buried here) and Bailey McSwain Pegg. James was the s/o John and Sarah ___ Pegg.

PEGG, John,806 b. 4 Aug 1786, d. 6 May 1863,; (Notes: John Pegg was the h/o Sarah ___. They were parents of James B. Pegg, and Nancy T. Pegg Pickens. This family needs more research."

PEGG, Sarah,807 b. 1 Feb 1776, d. 15 Aug 1857; (Notes: w/o John Pegg.  Mother of James B. Pegg, and Nancy T. Pegg Pickens. This family needs more research, especially the maiden name of this Sarah.)

PEPPER, Addison Guinn,106 b. 15 Aug 1890, d. 27 Jan 1892; (Notes: s/o William Guinn and Lavina Jane Pickens Pepper. h/o Hattie Kay, who took their two sons Robert Addison Pepper (Johnson),  and William Guinn Pepper (Johnson), in 1925 and abandoned their father and moved to Texas, swearing the oldest, Robert, to secrecy. After her death, 15 Sep 1980, the two sons sought out and found their father and had a wonderful reuinion documented by the local newspaper (The Easley Progress). It is not known where Hattie Kay is buried. Both sons were killed in an automobile crash and were cremated and their markers are memorial only: see Robert A Johnson, and Robert B. Johnson. Both were WWII veterans of the Navy.)

PEPPER, Annie Lucinda,101 b. 2 Nov 1882, d. 6 Apr 1970; (Notes: d/o William Guinn and Lavina Jane Pickens Pepper. Sister of Addison Guinn Pepper.  Nancy Elizabeth Pepper, Minnie Jane Pepper.)

Half-brother (same father, different mother, Martha Smith Pickens) of Sarah Smith Pickens, John Norton Pickens,  Martha Ann Pickens Gambrell,  Rev Robert Mason Pickens, Col William Smith Pickens, Israel Wesley Pickens.)

PICKENS, Aunt Jemima,1824 b. ca 1763? d. 1868, Age 105; (Notes: She was a Negro slave, yet much more than that. Family remembrances of her show she was a treasured family member who was very close to many in the family. Technically, she belonged to Capt Robert Pickens (1747-1830, Image File: CG-1703) and was willed to his son, Robert Pickens, (1795-1871), but from the family stories, it is more likely that this type of thing was done out of formality rather than "ownership." She was chosen to accompany the family to Augusta, GA, to see President George Washington as he toured the southern states in 1791. This shows the high esteem she was held in by the family. Her tombstone was carved by Dr. Andrew Lee Pickens in the early 1930s as a fitting memorial, and shows the flags of the nations under which she lived: England, South Carolina, United States, and Confederacy.)

PICKENS, Benjamin Perry,1820 b.?, d. ?; (Notes: Negro slave grave. Possibly a son of Jemima Pickens.)

PICKENS, Capt. Robert,1703 b. 26 Feb 1747 in Maryland, d. 19 Jul 1830 in SC, Served as Chaplain under Gen. Andrew Pickens in the Rev. War; (Notes: s/o Robert and Miriam Davis Pickens. She is not buried here. He was born in Frederick Co. MD. h/o Dorcas Hallum. Father of: Martha Pickens Smith,  Elizabeth Pickens, Robert Pickens. See page 772 of Moss for further Rev War service details. Capt Robert is the original owner of the land grant this cemetery is part of: 250 acres granted in Oct 1784, after this section of SC had been made available to white settlers by the Legislature in May, 1784. Before it could be granted, it had to be claimed, surveyed, and the request signed by the governor (at that time, Benjamin Guerard). In 1787, an additional 750 adjoining acres was granted by Gov Thomas Pinckney. Capt Pickens was undoubtedly the organizing force behind the original Richmond Presbyterian Church, of which there are some indications as early as 1787. Robert Macklin was pastor in Apr 1787, W. C. Davis and Robert McCulloch in Dec 1787; W. C. Davis in Mar 1788, W. C. Davis and Robert Hall in Oct 1788; and a Hunter and W. C. Davis in Apr 1789.  Early records are very spotty, but it appears the first elders of Richmond were Thomas Hamilton, James Watson, John Wilson, and Robert McCann. Interesting that Pickens is not among the group.  All are Rev War vets except McCann. All except Hamilton are buried here, and he may be, as there is some confusion about the stone at the present day Carmel Presbyterian, though Hamilton died after the Pickens became Methodists in the 1820-1840 period. Richmond became Carmel Presbyterian in 1793 for reasons unknown, perhaps another nearby congregation agreed to join forces. See George Howe, "History of the Presbyterian Church in South Carolina" published 1870, for all the known details.)

As a side note, the Colonel title must have been purely honorary, as there seems to have been no record of any military service of any kind, even militia, by William Smith Pickens that can be documented. But he was certainly a leading citizen of this part of Anderson County, so the title is not unusual for the time and place.)

PICKENS, Dorcas Hellams,1704 w/o (Capt) Robert Pickens, b. 15 Feb 1760, d. 5 Feb 1828; (Notes: Hellams should probably be spelled Hallum. She was the d/o William (b. 1731 in Prince George Co, MD, d.

She was a brother to John Hallum who married Anne Owens, and I believe is buried in Slabtown Cemetery, 2 miles sw. Dorcas and Robert were married 25 Dec 1773 in Long Canes Area, Ninety Six District, SC, where they had settled near Gen Andrew Pickens, his cousin. They may have been allied in business, and were certainly allied in politics. She is the mother of Martha Pickens Smith, Elizabeth Pickens, Robert Pickens.)

Tradition has it that James and his two brothers, William and Theodore were suffering from the measles, and, contrary to the directions from their mother to stay inside and "rest," were outside playing in the creek. Complications set in, and within 5 days, all three brothers were dead, a terrible tragedy for the family. Whether true or not, there must have been something very similar, considering the closeness of the death dates for all three brothers. It is a likely story.)

PICKENS, John,1707 b. ?, d. ?; (Notes: This John Pickens is a mystery. Judging from the similarity of the tombstones between his and John Norton Pickens, Image File: CG-1706, it would appear that the two might be brothers. However, there are no dates whatsoever on this John Pickens tombstone. There was time enough for him to have been born between the birth of Margaret Pickens (Jan 1816) and Sarah Smith Pickens (May 1818). There was again time for him to have been born between John Norton Pickens (Dec 1819) and William Smith Pickens (Feb 1823), but this does not seem reasonable to have two sons named John at the same time, as John Norton died in Dec 1822, while his mother was pregnant with William Smith Pickens. All these conjectures, of course, hinge on the parents of John Pickens being Robert and Martha Smith Pickens, based on the similarity of the tombstones (John Norton Pickens being their 3rd child, b. Dec 1819, d. Dec 1822). There are no other John Pickens of any other descendants of the "patriarch" Robert

PICKENS, M(ary) Mandeline,201 b. 11 Dec 1847, d. 7 Apr 1921; (Notes: It is almost certain that the tombstone birthdate (1867) is in error, as all family records state 1847 as her birth year. If she had been born in 1867, her mother, Nancy T. Pegg Pickens, would have been 56 years old, a not impossible, but a very highly unlikely event; her father, Robert Pickens, would have been 72, again, not impossible, but very highly unlikely. Family records also show that she was the 7th of 9 children to this marriage. This is also a "recent" tombstone that probably replaced either a period tombstone or a fieldstone, increasing the likelihood of a mistake. There is no doubt in my mind that she was born in 1847, and this then is certainly a case of a "marble mistake." She was the sister of Dorcas Emeline Pickens, Virginia Angeline Pickens, Adison Gamewell Pickens, Sidney Asbury Pickens.

PICKENS, Robert,1709 b. 1697 in Ireland, d. 1787; (Notes: s/o William and Margaret Pickens who came from Ireland with their children in ca 1719, landing in probably Philadelphia, PA, and settling in the Pennslyvania country, probably Bucks County, where some of William and Margaret's grandchildren were born.  William and Margaret probably died there. The children moved on from there, probably all following the great wagon road south, various ones stopping at different places along the way.  Robert and his wife, Miriam Davis stopped at Frederick Co, MD, for a while, then moved to Wahaws, SC, where they rejoined at least this Robert's brother Andrew and his wife Anne (Nancy) Davis, who was surely a sister to Miriam. Another brother, John, appeared to have also joined them there, too. Then Andrew died in 1764, and the leadership of the family seemed to pass to the future Gen Andrew and Robert, and they both seemed to have moved to Long Canes Section of Ninety Six District, maybe in 1766 or even earlier, as the son Andrew had probably moved or at least claimed land earlier and may have persuaded his counterpart cousin Robert (the future Capt Robert) to do so also. Then the Robert branch of the family's leadership seems to pass to Capt Robert. The death date and place of Miriam is unknown, but the Waxhaws is a good guess. All family data and tradition both say the "patriarch" Robert died in 1787, as does the period tombstone, but his will was not probated until 1793, so some "documented" sources place his death in 1793, but traveling to Ninety Six or the adjacent town of Cambridge was not like running down to the county seat is today.  It was a real hardship, and other things were more important than filing a will.  It is said that Robert's is the oldest birth date on a grave in all of Anderson County, but I do not know if this is true or not. I do know it is the earliest grave in Pickens Cemetery.  There are two stones, one a period memorial, now affixed to a more modern one placed ca 1989.  Both say the identical same thing. Robert the "patriarch" was the father of Capt Robert Pickens.)

SITTON, Matthew,1819 b. ?, d. ?; Note: fieldstone without visable markings). (Notes: Negro slave grave. Nothing further known about him.)

SMITH, Alma Elizabeth,223 b. 6 Sep 1874, d. 15 Nov 1921; (Notes: d/o John Theodore and Esther Dick Burdine Smith. Sister of John Raymond Smith, Luther Gamewell Smith.)

SMITH, Benjamin,1406 Pvt. SC Mili Rev. War; ((Notes: Moss, p. 873, also lists him as a Capt and a Maj in the lower part of the state militia,but he also served under Gen Andrew Pickens several times. This variety in rank was probably due to the practice of multiple enlistments in various companies at various times. There seems to be some confusion in his ancestry, too. It appears most likely that his parents were Job Smith and maybe Hannah Douthit Smith. This is a conflation of records from Grace Smith Pettijohn's book, "Smith-Pickens", published in 1912, a very little known publication, and the Old Pendleton Database, and Pickens family records. Benjamin may have had two wives, the first of which appears to have been Elizabeth Simmons, the second Ruth Lindley, who is buried beside him. There is also a marker of "recent" vintage giving the names of Benjamin and Ruth Lindley Smith's children, some of which may also be buried here. See Ruth Lindley Smith for her ancestry and another tie to the Smith family.)

SMITH, C. McDuffie,1416 s/o J(ames) E(lford) & M(ary) (Susan) S(tone) Smith, b. 23 Aug 1878, d. 3 Sep 1878; (Notes: This is part of a unique tombstone; five granite "logs" stacked one on top of each other. Caleb McKendree and Mary Elizabeth Wilson Smith were the parents of James Elford Smith. James Elford Smith was b. 27 Mar 1857, d. 8 Nov 1920; Mary Susan Stone Smith was b. 7 Jun 1859, d. 16 May 1937, and both are buried in Granite Cemetery, Granite, Greer County, OK. Caleb McKendree Smith was b. 26 May 1827, d. 9 Dec 1901; Mary Elizabeth Wilson Smith was b. 1828, d. 3 Aug 1918, both are buried at Fairview Methodist Cemetery, Oconee County, SC. The infant C. McDuffie Smith is noted on the next to the top granite "log.")

SMITH, Charles M.,1419 s/o C(aleb) M(cKendree) & M(ary) E(lizabeth) (Wilson) Smith, b. 21 Apr 1853, d. 3 Jun 1855; (Notes: This is part of a unique tombstone; five granite "logs" stacked one on top of each other. Caleb McKendree and Mary Elizabeth Wilson Smith were the parents of James Elford Smith. James Elford Smith was b. 27 Mar 1857, d. 8 Nov 1920; Mary Susan Stone Smith was b. 7 Jun 1859, d. 16 May 1937, and both are buried in Granite Cemetery, Granite, Greer County, OK.

The child Charles M. Smith is noted on the bottom "log.")

SMITH, Child (Unnamed Infant Son),1417 s/o C(aleb) M(cKendree) & M(ary) E(lizabeth) (Wilson) Smith, b. Dec 1863, d. Dec 1863; (Notes: This is part of a unique tombstone; five granite "logs" stacked one on top of each other. Caleb McKendree and Mary Elizabeth Wilson Smith were the parents of James Elford Smith. James Elford Smith was b. 27 Mar 1857, d. 8 Nov 1920; Mary Susan Stone Smith was b. 7 Jun 1859, d. 16 May 1937, and both are buried in Granite Cemetery, Granite, Greer County, OK. Caleb McKendree Smith was b. 26 May 1827, d. 9 Dec 1901; Mary Elizabeth Wilson Smith was b. 1828, d. 3 Aug 1918, both are buried at Fairview Methodist Cemetery, Oconee County, SC. This unnamed male infant is noted on the middle "log.")

SMITH, Child,316 b. ca 1882-1883?, d. ca 1882-1883?; (Notes: Fieldstone marker, no engraving. Child of unknown age and unknown gender. Parents were Madison Earl and Mary (Mollie) Louisa Young Smith)

SMITH, Elizabeth,414 b. ?, d. ?,; Note: fieldstone without markings). (Notes: This Elizabeth Smith is somewhat of a mystery. There seems to be no relation to any other Smith in the cemetery, especially those in the northwest corner - unless she happens to be the wife of Rev. War veteran Joshua Smith, who is buried at her feet, which is a very unusual place/relation for the graves of husband and wife. The graves at her side are all unknown, but could be those of young children or infants of this marriage, if this relation is correct. This is all supposition based purely and solely on grave relationship, nothing else.)

SMITH, Esdras,1421 b. ?, d. ?; (Notes: This is a rather unusual fieldstone in that it has two names roughly engraved on it, probably man and wife, but it could also be two children: brother and sister. Nothing is known about these two people. It has traditionally assumed they were man and wife, but I'm not sure that is a valid assumption. I'm also not sure "Esdras" is correct either. The engraving is very hard to read. If it is man and wife, the husband is J. Smith, that much is clearly read.)

SMITH, Esther D. Burdine,224 w/o J(ohn) T(heodore) Smith, b. 21 Jun 1845, d. 16 Aug 1911; (Notes: d/o Rev John and Charlotte Ambler Burdine. Sister of Martha Ann Burdine Pickens. Married to John Theodore Smith on 6 Dec 1866. Mother of Alma Elizabeth Smith, Luther Gamewell Smith, John Raymond Smith.)

SMITH, Gertrude Genevieve,323 d/o J(ohn) C(oke) & Mrs (Marie Jennings) Smith, b. 3 Feb 1917, d. 21 May 1919; (Notes: John Coke Smith was the youngest child of Madison Earl and Mary (Mollie) Louisa Young Smith. He is not buried here, but lived about one-half mile due east.)

SMITH, Hampton,1306 b. 1766, d. ?; (Notes: Of all the graves in the cemetery, this one causes me the most heartbreak. It is a small fieldstone with no engraving. Yet beneath the soil may lie a revered son, a veteran of our struggle for independence. Dr. Andrew L. Pickens clearly thought so, but evidently could not come up with enough evidence to satisfy the VA in the early 1930s when he documented so many others in the cemetery that would have clearly been lost. The sad part is, he did not worry about those who did have a "good tombstone" marking their grave, but concentrated on those whose grave was marked only by by memory. We should be grateful and not complain, I suppose. But this one bothers me. I realize he would have probably been about 15 at the battle of Cowpens, but there were many that age and younger who stood there and many other places. Either way, Moss has no record of him, and I have not been able to turn up one straw of hint of him anywhere. It appears he may have married Susannah Posey, who may be buried beside him, but we do not know. The Old Pickens District records gave me that hint. His parents are supposed to be Christopher Kitt B. Smith and Mary Mauldin, but the Smith records in the OPD database are many and very confused.)

SMITH, J.,1420 b. ?, d. ?; (Notes: This is a rather unusual fieldstone in that it has two names roughly engraved on it: J Smith on the top line and what may be Esdras Smith on the bottom line, but further research is definitely required. These are probably man and wife, but it could also be two children: brother and sister. Nothing is known about these two people. It has traditionally assumed they were man and wife, but I'm not sure that is a valid assumption. I'm also not sure "Esdras" is correct either, as others have read it as Rhoda, which would be a somewhat "modern" name, and this is clearly an old stone, one I would guess from the early to mid-1800s. The engraving is very hard to read.)

SMITH, Job,1309 SC PVT SC McCall's Co. Militia, Rev. War; (Notes: This Job Smith is probably the Job Smith Jr, listed in Moss, p. 877, and not his father from p. 876, much to the sadness of family historians. I base this on Grace Smith Pettijohn's comment in her book, "Smith-Pickens" published in 1913, which says the original Job was buried on his home farm on 3 & 20 creek. Her information came from people who had personally known Job Smith and so should have known where he was buried. Moss' entry for the senior Job say's nothing about McCall's Co, but does list other company commanders, one of which is John Wilson, who is probably our John Wilson. Job Smith Jr's entry simply states he "served in the militia after the fall of Charleston," an entry that leaves us somewhat less than satisfied, as it probably also left Moss. We know little of Job Jr, except he came from a large family, and we hear no more of him. His brother, John, is buried close. Much more research needs to be done on this branch of the Smiths, as there is much confusion and too much that just does not add up. OPD files may be of some help, but they appear to be a generation off in some ways.)

SMITH, John,1310 b. 7 Jan 1778, d. 26 Sep 1848; (Notes: s/o Job and Hannah? Douthit Smith, neither buried here, or maybe both buried here: Job in Image File: CG-1309 and she in one of the unknowns. It is also very possible that John is the s/o Joseph and Elizabeth Hallum Smith. In either case, more research is needed. The very firm fact is that he was the h/o Martha Pickens, married ca 1800. She died, probably as the result of complications from childbirth in 1818, so it is very likely he married again, possibly to an Elizabeth Kencelor, of whom nothing is known, and it is not known if they had any children. Again, more research is needed.)

SMITH, John Raymond,228 s/o J(ohn) T(heodore) & E(sther) D(ick) (Burdine) Smith, b. 29 Apr 1881, d. 20 Nov 1883; (Notes: brother of Alma Elizabeth Smith, and Luther Gamewell Smith.)

SMITH, John Theodore,225 b. 20 Nov 1844, d. 9 May 1918; (Notes: s/o John Collingsworth and Amanda Smith, neither buried here. Grandson of John and Martha Pickens Smith. h/o Esther Dick Burdine Smith. Father of Alma Elizabeth Smith, Luther Gamewell Smith, John Raymond Smith. His old homeplace is still standing on Hwy 8, one mile east. Tom Morgan lives there. I think it is also his father's home place and a barn in Morgan's yard is the remodeled original old cabin. Great grandson of Capt Robert Pickens.)

SMITH, Joseph,1210 PVT SC Militia Rev. War; (Notes: see Moss, p. 878 for details. b. ca 1748 in PA. He could be the Joseph Smith that m. Elizabeth Hallum, for the details are close, but OPD genealogical files on this branch of the Smith family are very confusing, to say the least, so great care had best be taken before identifying anyone for certain, although his presence in this cemetery makes it almost a certainty of his kindred to the rest of the Smiths here in some fashion.)

SMITH, Joshua, 512 b.?, d.?, Lt. GA Troops, Rev. War; (Notes: There is nothing known nor are there any traditions about this Smith, except that it is possible that Elizabeth Smith, might have been his wife, although burial at his head and not at his side is a very strange location for a husband and wife to be buried.)

SMITH, Luther G(amewell),120 b. 31 Aug 1871, d. 9 Nov. 1957; (Notes: s/o John Theodore and Esther Dick Burdine Smith, h/o Mallie Mildred Ballantine Smith, m. 1899. Father of Luther Gamewell Smith, Jr, Vera Smith,  Williene Smith,.)

SMITH, Madison Earl,324 b. 9 Feb 1852, d. 8 Feb 1914; (Notes: s/o John Collinsworth and Amanda Smith, neither buried here. Brother of John Theodore Smith, h/o Mary Louisa Young Smith. Father of unnamed child. Great grandson of Capt Robert Pickens.)

SMITH, Mallie (Mildred) B(allantine),119 w/o L(uther) G(amewell) Smith, b. 10 Mar 1881, d. 10 Aug 1970; (Notes: d/o James Anderson and Nancy Elizabeth Welborn Ballantine, neither buried here. Mother of: Luther Gamewell Smith, Jr, Image File: CG-0118, Vera Smith, Williene Smith.)

SMITH, Martha P(ickens),1708 b. 15 Jun 1776, d. 17 Aug 1818; (Notes: d/o Capt Robert and Dorcas Hallum Pickens. Sister of Elizabeth Pickens, and Robert Pickens. 1st wife of John Smith.)

SMITH, Mary Lillian,326 b. 12 Oct 1885, d. 11 Nov 1908; (Notes: d/o Madison Earl and Mary (Mollie) Louisa Young Smith.)

SMITH, Meade,713 b. ?, d. ?; (Notes: Dr. A. L. Pickens thought it was possible he was a Revolutionary War veteran, but evidently he did not find sufficient evidence for a VA headstone in the 1930s. There is no Meade Smith in Moss' book, but that is not final. The Old Pendleton District genealogical database has a Meade Smith b. 1756 and d. 1790 and possibly married to a Hughes, but the Smith database is confused and should be approached with great caution. If this is true, then logic would say his wife is buried beside him and his age would certainly make him a veteran.)

SMITH, Michael,1308 b. ca 1751, d. 10 Nov 1805; (Notes: Also engraved on his period tombstone: "A good citizen & true friend to his country". Has traditionally been considered a Revolutionary War veteran. However, no Michael Smith in Moss' book. This is not final, however. Dr. Andrew L. Pickens, in his 1930s survey of the cemetery, did not order a government tombstone for him, based on church records of his being in the war, because he already had a tombstone marking his grave. Dr. Pickens' concern at that time was that all these veterans' graves be marked and not lost, not particulary that it be documented and established that certain men were veterans. Times have changed. What church records he was referring to, I do not know - maybe Carmel Presbyterian Church? Those would have been the contemporary records.)

SMITH, Mollie (Louisa) Young,326 b. 28 Apr 1859, d. 17 May 1909, (broken); (Notes: Her actual first name is "Mary." She was the w/o Madison Earl Smith, married ca 1880. Mother of unnamed child.)

SMITH, Pvt. L(uther) G(amewell) Jr.,118 s/o Mr. & Mrs. L(uther) G(amewell) Smith, b. 24 Feb 1920, d. 16 Aug 1941, drowned at Scotfield, ILL; (Notes: Brother of: Vera Smith, Williene Smith.)

SMITH, Richard,1502 b.?, d.?, Confederate States Army; (Notes: Nothing at all is known of this Smith, except that he is obviously connected somehow to the rest of the Smiths buried here. This is a "standard" United Daughters of the Confederacy tombstone.)

SMITH, Ruth Alice,1710 d/o J(ames) D(outhart) & M(artha) J(ane) (Acker) Smith, b. 30 Jan 1858, d. 2 Apr 1863; (Notes: This father was the son of John and Martha Pickens Smith, Ruth Alice was sister to unnamed twins.)

SMITH, Ruth Lindley,1407 w/o Benjamin Smith; (Notes: Ruth appears to have been Benjamin's 2nd wife. She was the d/o James (b. 22 Sep 1735 in York Co, PA, d. in Walton Co. GA) and Mary Cox Lindley (b. in Orange Co, NC, d. in Walton Co. GA). The children of this marriage are listed on a stone at the grave site. Some may be buried in this cemetery.)

SMITH, Twins,1711 Unnamed Children, b. 1856, d. 1856; (Notes: Gender unknown. Parents were James Douthart Smith (s/o John and Martha Pickens Smith, and Martha Jane Acker Smith. The unnamed twins were siblings to Ruth Alice Smith)

SMITH, Vera,229 d/o L(uther) G(amewell) & M(allie) (Mildred) B(allantine) Smith, b. 13 Aug 1900, d. 26 Sep 1904; (Notes: Sister of Pvt Luther G. Smith Jr, Williene Smith.)

SMITH, Walter Leland,327 b. 5 Mar 1884, d. 13 May 1884; (Notes: s/o Madison Earl and Mary (Mollie) Louisa Young Smith. Brother of Mary Lillian Smith, and unnamed Child Smith.)

SMITH, Walton E.,1415 s/o J(ames) E(lford) & M(ary) (Susan) S(tone) Smith, b. ?, d. ?, aged 14 months; (Notes: This is part of a unique tombstone; five granite "logs" stacked one on top of each other. Caleb McKendree and Mary Elizabeth Wilson Smith were the parents of James Elford Smith. James Elford Smith was b. 27 Mar 1857, d. 8 Nov 1920; Mary Susan Stone Smith was b. 7 Jun 1859, d. 16 May 1937, and both are buried in Granite Cemetery, Granite, Greer County, OK. Caleb McKendree Smith was b. 26 May 1827, d. 9 Dec 1901; Mary Elizabeth Wilson Smith was b. 1828, d. 3 Aug 1918, both are buried at Fairview Methodist Cemetery, Oconee County, SC. The infant Walton E. Smith is noted on the top granite "log.")

SMITH, William M.,1418 s/o C(aleb) M(cKendree) & M(ary) E(lizabeth) (Wilson) Smith, b. 12 Sep 1861, d. 23 Apr 1862; (Notes: This is part of a unique tombstone; five granite "logs" stacked one on top of each other. Caleb McKendree and Mary Elizabeth Wilson Smith were the parents of James Elford Smith. James Elford Smith was b. 27 Mar 1857, d. 8 Nov 1920; Mary Susan Stone Smith was b. 7 Jun 1859, d. 16 May 1937, and both are buried in Granite Cemetery, Granite, Greer County, OK. Caleb McKendree Smith was b. 26 May 1827, d. 9 Dec 1901; Mary Elizabeth Wilson Smith was b. 1828, d. 3 Aug 1918, both are buried at Fairview Methodist Cemetery, Oconee County, SC. The child William M. Smith is noted on the next to the bottom "log.")

SMITH, Williene,230 d/o Mr. & Mrs. L.G. Smith, b. 3 May 1909, d. 25 Aug 1929; (Notes: d/o Luther Gamewell and Mallie Mildred Ballantine Smith. Sister of Vera Smith, and Pvt Luther Gamewell Smith Jr.)

TYRRELL, Eliza Hamilton,801 w/o Henry Tyrrell, b. 1801, d. 23 Aug 1818, age 17 years; (Notes: d/o Maj Andrew and Margaret Anderson Hamilton.)

VAN SHARP, Child,109 b. ?, d. ca 1858; (Notes: Name and gender unknown, probably an infant child of a pastor of Pickens Chapel Methodist Church of this period.)

WADDLE, Delany,510 b. ?, d. 1853; (Notes: Almost nothing is known of this family, and everything is basically speculation. Delany and Delia are likely sisters and might have been daughters of William and Hannah or maybe even granddaughters.)

WADDLE, Delia,511 b. ?, d. 1856; (Notes: Almost nothing is known of this family, and everything is basically speculation. Delany and Delia are likely sisters and might have been daughters of William and Hannah or maybe even granddaughters.)

WADDLE, Hannah,509 b. ?, d. 6 Sep 1845; (Notes: Almost nothing is known of this family, and everything is basically speculation. I suspect Hannah may have been William's wife because of the full date of death on the tombstone, even though the whole thing is obviously home made. The two others with only the year engraved indicate to me they were "not worth the extra effort." Could I be right?)

WADDLE, Mrs. Abram Martin,507 b. ?, d. ?; (Notes: Almost nothing is known of this family, and everything is basically speculation. I strongly suspect this is the wife of a brother or son of William, as the name shows a "Mrs." versus a maiden name of Waddle, or I would say a sister. I lean in the direction of the daughter-in-law relationship simply because of census data for early 1800s.)

WADDLE, William,508 b.?, d. 24 Jul 1830, Pvt. VA Artillery, Rev. War; (Notes: This little group of Waddles are likely all of the same family. Possibly Hannah Waddle, was William's wife and the other two, Delany and Delia are young daughters that died in childhood. I have no information on any of them. The other is someone who married into the family.)

WALKER, Mary,1303 b. ?, d. ?; (Notes: This is a fieldstone with "MW" roughly but plainly readable engraved on it. Nothing is known about her or if her husband or children lie on either side of her.)

WATSON, James,1103 SC PVT SC Militia, Rev. War, b. 1765, d. Nov 1847; (Notes: See Moss, p. 971. James served a short period right at the end of the Rev. War, as would be consistent with his age. He married Mary Julia Anderson, dau of Maj. James Anderson, and Agnes Craig, not buried here. Mary Julia Anderson was b. 1772, d. 1870, and was buried somewhere unknown to me. James Watson was one of the first elders of the original Richmond Presbyterian Church, allied to this cemetery.)

WIGINGTON, Maud (Leech) Rosamond1319, w/o T(homas) A(ustin) Wigington, b. 15 Oct 1877, d. 6 Dec 1916; (Notes: She was the d/o Thomas Westfield and Aurelia Adelaide Oliver Rosamond. She married Thomas Austin Wigington 28 Mar 1906. Mother of Maude Rosamond Wigington Merritt. Sister of Mattie Aurelia Emeline Rosamond, Image File: CG-1217, Dr James Oliver Rosamond, Jennie Westfield Rosamond, Addie Rosamond, John Hodges Rosamond. Her husband, Thomas Austin Wigington was b. 13 Oct 1877, d. 21 Jun 1960 and is buried in Mountain Springs Baptist Church Cemetery, Anderson County, SC, about 3 miles SSE.)

WILSON, Charles,1313 SC Pvt SC Militia, Rev. War; (Notes: The Wilson family is one I've been working on with a couple of friends for about five years with much luck until we get to the Revolutionary generation. Then we can do great with the guesses and suppositions and "appears to be's", but we come up short on anything approaching even hints, much less proof. OPD database is, let us say kindly, somewhat inadequate, and leave it at that. I think William, Charles, and John of the Revolutionary generation were all brothers, but I have no proof whatsoever. And in the next generation, they named sons for themselves and for their brothers and thing are very confused to say the least. There seems to be dozens of Williams, Charles, and Johns in every generations in every line. If it wasn't so much fun, I'd give up. If you're reading this and know something for sure, HELP! See Moss, p. 1001 for Rev War svc. details. h/o Polly Pettigrew. Father of Charles P(ettigrew?) Wilson.)

WILSON, Charles P(ettigrew?),1315 b. ?, d. ca Nov 1837; (Notes: Fieldstone marker engraved "CPWILSON" but is not clear until you "see it the first time." Son of Charles and Polly Pettigrew. Traditionally supposed to have been buried the same day as Dr. James Oliver, on 10 Nov 1837, but I have my doubts.)

WILSON, Elizabeth (Pickens),1717 b. 16 Apr 1770, d. 22 Jun 1873, Age 103; (Notes: d/o Israel Pickens and a Bole or Boyd, grandaughter of Robert and Miriam Davis Pickens, not buried here. May not have actually been 103 years old according to Dr. A. L. Pickens. w/o John Wilson, . Mother of John W. Wilson.)

WILSON, Elizabeth C.,1719 w/o J(ohn) W. Wilson, b. 22 Mar 1815, d. 6 May 1892; (Notes: Nothing is known about her other that what is on the tombstone.)

WILSON, John,1411 b. 10 Jun 1755, d. 30 May 1849, "aged 94 years. He was a soldier in the Revolution."; (Notes: One of the group of first elders of the original Richmond Presbyterian Church, which was allied with this cemetery. The Wilson family is one of the most frustrating to deal with, as data is fairly good until the Revolutionary generation, and then the data is virtually non-existent. I am personally convinced that John, Charles, and William were brothers. The problem is that there is no "proof". Serious research is needed, and may have been done - and I don't know of it. OPD database says John was married on 20 May 1798 to Elizabeth Pegg, who was b. 1773, d. 8 Mar 1848 and is buried at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Anderson, SC. She may have been an older sister to John Pegg. See Moss, p. 1002.)

WILSON, John,1606 b. ca 1777, d. 25 Sep 1823, Pvt. Ballard's U.S. Riflemen, War of 1812; (Notes: s/o William Wilson, and Jane Cunningham Wilson, burial site unknown, but possibly here, beside William. h/o Elizabeth Pickens Wilson7. Father of John W. Wilson.)

WILSON, John W., 1718 b. 6 Nov 1806, d. 14 Aug 1882, Age 75 years, 9 Mos.; (Notes: s/o John and Elizabeth, h/o Elizabeth C. Wilson.)

WILSON, Martha Johnson,1316 b. ?, d. ?; (Notes: This grave was traditionally reputed to be the wife of Charles P Wilson. Martha Johnson is supposed to be that person. This is better than a guess, but I'm not sure it's good enough to be engraved in marble yet.)

WILSON, Polly Pettigrew,1314 b. ?, d. ?; (Notes: w/o Charles Wilson. Mother of Charles P(ettigrew?) Wilson.)

WILSON, William,1604 b. 1744 (PA), d. Nov 1834, Pvt. SC Militia, Rev. War; (Notes: Again, one of what I think are three original Wilson brothers: Charles, John, and William, but I have no proof, and all the research I find ends at the Revolutionary generation. No one seems to know where these three come from. More research! For William, see Moss, p. 1004. Married on 16 Aug 1774, Jane Cunningham who was b. 1751, d. 20 Aug 1808.
