Bethany Cemetery; Charleston, South Carolina

Bethany Cemetery in Charleston, South Carolina is a 50+ acre cemetery owned by St. Matthew's Lutheran Church. It was founded in 1856. A large amount of the individuals interred are German. The landscape is picturesque and there are many beautiful stones.

I have made some contributions to FindAGrave from Bethany Cemetery, including photos and gravestone transcriptions. Surnames include the following: BARRENTINE, BEHLMER, BEHRENS, BISCHOFF, BITTESOHN, BLASE, BULCKEN, CHAMBERS, GOTJEN, GROOMS, HARMS, HASTEDT, HEINSOHN, KNEE, KORNAHRENS, LILIENTHAI, MEYER, ORNSTON, REENSTJERNA, SCHNELL, SPINCKEN, STEENKEN, STUMP, VINSON, WAGENER, WITCOFSKEY, and YERBY.

Auf Wiedersehen!
