Re: “Hidden Heritage

The Remley's Park development has plotted 11 lots near the cemetery while there appears to be a cordoned path and separate area for the cemetery. This may be the inevitable change which accompanies growth while this plan seems to be a respectful outcome versus the development plan of 2008. Much like the older cemeteries in cities such as New York City which date to the early 1700s a peoples' heritage can continue side-by-side with growth. As a point of clarification, Scanlonville is the community of people living along 3rd-through-7th Avenues while Remley's Point is more representative of the boat landing area bordering the Wando River. As a resident of Scanlonville I learned the name by simply reading the sign located at the junction of Fifth Avenue and Mathis Ferry Road. Much like the Old Village, Hamlin Plantation and Snowden it is an area of Mount Pleasant. Born in California and raised near NYC I also lived in Atlanta for 20 years where I traveled to work with the Japanese, Koreans, Europeans, Singaporeans and Indians among others. Upon returning to work in NYC I listened to unflattering stereotypical references to southerners from people who never lived in the region. Some people will always disparage others while the best persons embrace differences and the uniqueness of human spirit.
