ST. GEORGE (UDC) CEMETERY
Click HERE for more cemetery photos
The St. George Cemetery is located on Memorial Boulevard (Highway 78), between Ann Street (at brick church) & Metts Street. It is surrounded by a chain link fence, and entered through a wrought iron gate with square stone pillars. Pages 1-4 (445 tombstone transcriptions) were recorded by Jan Criddle during visits to the St. George Cemetery over a period of years. Jan stressed that these transcriptions and notes were her personal project, and at the time were not intended for publication. Although all information is deemed reliable, accuracy is not guaranteed. Some additional notes may be from Jan's personal information and not necessarily from the tombstones themselves. If you believe that any of this information is in error, please contact me and I will add your comments in postscript.
July 31, 2004: Jan's transciptions (445 total) have now been uploaded and are searchable by the Dorchester County site search. Page Five begins additional transciptions. If you have done actual transcriptions of tombstones in this cemetery, and you do not find the names in Pages 1-5, please send them to me, and I'll add them to Page Five. In March 2008 the first book of St. George U.D.C. Cemetery transcriptions has been published, and is now available. You'll find information about ordering the book HERE. Pat Sabin.
TRIBUTE TO JAN CRIDDLE
Jan Criddle passed away on March 9, 2006. Jan was an avid "Lowcountry" South Carolina genealogist, and I know how pleased she is to know that her contributions will continue to benefit researchers and family members for many years to come. She will be missed.
Claire Schuetrum sent this excerpt of Jan's obituary from The State, Columbia, SC, Saturday, March 11, 2006:
"Jeannette Criddle. Cayce -- Jeannette Criddle, 68, died Thursday, March 9, 2006. Born in Decatur, Ala., she was the daughter of the late James M. and Elise Jackson Criddle. She retired as an auditor with the S.C. Department of Revenue."
Claire shared these memories,
"Jan was a dynamic person with a great sense of humor. I met her through her connection to one of the Branchville Grimes families. She told me that her Criddle ancestor, James Samuel Criddle, a soldier in the Northern Army, came south during the Civil War and met a girl in the Reevesville- -Branchville area, Elizabeth "Eliza" Grimes. After the war he returned to marry her and remained.
"She was working on a Judy family history at one time. Besides Grimes, Criddle, and Judy, some of her other family lines were George, Canaday, and Harbison. I like to think that she knows all of the genealogical
