A mystery of tombstones
Staff at the Camden Archives and Museum searched for more than 15 years to pinpoint the original location of three displaced tombstones. The origin of one of the tombstones was determined and it was returned. With no conclusive leads uncovered for the remaining markers -- for Rebecca Sanders and Walter Lampman -- they were installed in Quaker Cemetery.
More than 15 years ago, Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies brought three tombstones to the Camden Archives and Museum, hoping the archives director and staff could help find their origins. One tombstone has since been placed in its proper cemetery in Chester County. Mystery still surrounds the remaining two.
