Phillip Martinangele, born in Italy, immigrated to this country and settled in St. Helena´s Parish. He married Mary Foster in 1743 but had died by 1762, when his widow bought 500 acres on Daufuskie Island. In December 1781 during the closing days of the American Revolution, their son Phillip, a captain in the British Royal Militia, was killed by the Bloody Legion, a partisan band of Hilton Head Island. He is probably buried here with others of his family.
