About Richard Gideon's marker: The Aberdeen
Examiner's June 27, 1957 issue gives some history about
this marker. The DAR purchased the marker about 30 years
prior to this issue of the paper; however, they had been
unable to locate the grave until Dr. Jim Riley of Greenwood
Springs with the assistance of Miss Lucille Peacock's research
located the grave in this then abandoned cemetery. The marker
was unveiled on the 192nd anniversary of the Patriot's birth.
New research calls into question the identity of this as
the Patriot born in 1765. The discrepancy is based on the
birth of Catherine Gideon Wise in 1775. Catherine is believed
to be the daughter of the Richard buried in Center Cemetery.
The Roster of South Carolina Patriots
in the American Revolution by Bobby Gilmer Moss (Baltimore:
Genealogical, 1983) gives Richard's birth date as 20 June
1765 and his death date as 7 November 1834.
