Edmund Jenkins
Edmund Jenkins, a veteran of World War I, was the first elected black Town Marshal in Mount Pleasant, and served the Town from 1920-1927. He died December 26, 1930. His gravestone is directly to the left of this marker. The public housing facility built in 1952 located two blocks north is named the Edmund Jenkins Homes in his memory.

Ocean Grove Cemetery
An 1883 Town ordinance created Ocean Grove Cemetery on this block. The section bordering Simmons Street on the right is called Ocean View by the African-American community. The adjoining section is owned by St. Paul's Lutheran Church. Hallelujah Lane separates the two cemeteries.
