The Rocks Church Cemetery Burial List
INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM PAMPHLET DISTRIBUTED AT CHURCH ISLAND REUNION.
     What follows is a list of the known burials in Rock's Church Cemetery which has been compiled from the Burial Registers of Epiphany Church and a visual inspection of the actual gravestones during restoration. 
 
     Of special interest is listing #3, a Mr. George Benisco, who appears to have been the first burial in this cemetery in November of 1807. This indicates that plans were already well underway and the land already secured at this date for the relocation of the church from Rock's Plantation to land belonging to Springfield Plantation. Mr. Benisco's headstone has not well survived the ravishes of time. The sugaring remains of his headstone can be found in the EAST CENTRAL section of the cemetery marked with a small red flag.   
     Also of interest is listing #56, the grave of Mr. James Samuel Gaillard, who died on February 7, 1942 at age 84 years, 11 months and 19 days and was buried on February 9, 1942. The site of his headstone will be found in the WEST CENTRAL section of the cemetery near the fence and in view of the waters of Lake Marion. His was the last interment in the cemetery, as the slowly rising waters of the Santee River soon rose to form the new Lake Marion and create this Church Island, as a hollowed time capsule, separated from the activity and development of the mainland and sacred to the memory of the faith and courage of the men, women and children who heroically settled this great area.   
     Another special headstone, which stands as a testament to the great love the people had for their land and their personal struggle in having to give it up to the "Santee-Cooper" Development is listing #126, the grave of  Mr. Joseph Palmer Simons of Pond Bluff Plantation. Pond Bluff had been given to the Simons family by the widow of General Francis Marion in appreciation for their service and protection afforded her while the general was away fighting the Revolutionary War. Mr. Simons had tenaciously refused to voluntarily surrender his land and dauntlessly resisted condemnation procedures. The courts, however, ruled against him, but the thought of giving up his home and land was more that Mr. Joe could endure. So on July 7, 1939 he entered the home for the last time, put a handgun to his head and released his last breath in Pond Bluff Plantation, which he so dearly loved. He was buried from the Rock's Church on July 8, 1939 and his mortal remains now lie at rest in Church Island Cemetery within view of the waters of Lake Marion which now cover his beloved Pond Bluff Plantation. His headstone will be found in the SOUTH WEST section of the cemetery near the fence.   
     And finally, a rather humorous story, as related by Miss Marguerite Couturier Steedman, of Holly Hill, concerning listing number #156, the headstone of her "Great Grandma," Mrs. Emma Julia Steedman, located just in the Northeast quadrant and directly behind the raised brick tomb of her dear father, Mr. Elias F. Couturier (listing #13).  
     When Mrs. Emma was buried her family, who were living in Atlanta, commissioned a monument firm in the City of Charleston to make her headstone. After years of correspondence between the family in Atlanta and the Charleston firm, which offered excuse after excuse for the disconcerting delay, it was learned that the owner of the firm had disappeared from Charleston taking with him the meager liquid assets of the company, which included the payment for Mrs. Emma's headstone.  
     The family then contacted a monument firm in Atlanta, who promptly executed a simple but dignified headstone with the appropriate phrase "Blessed are the pure in heart." With the headstone completed, the family now faced the problem of getting it all the way to Rock's Church in South Carolina and erected at the grave site. After exploring the few possible options, it was decided to personally deliver and oversee it's installation.   
     So early one morning in 1924 young Marguerite and her mother boarded their open green Essex Touring car, with the headstone on the rear floor, one suitcase on the seat and the family collie atop the headstone to steady it, heading for Eutawville, South Carolina. Late that night, after several stops to seek direction, they drove their last mile, down the impressive entrance to Lawson's Pond Plantation, the home of her Father's cousin, "Pum" Couturier.   
     The next morning Mr. Couturier called his friend "Dick" Kirk of Mt. Pleasant Plantation and they all drove to The Rock's Church and set in place the headstone of Mrs. Emma Julia Steedman. The rest of the day was spent at Lawson's Pond Plantation, where young Marguerite got to know and love her South Carolina cousins. The next day, the great adventure successfully completed, young Marguerite and her mother made the long drive back to Atlanta, content that Mrs. Emma Julia Steedman was proud of her progeny.
