 I am seeking birth records for my ancestor, Harriett Jones Clarke.  She was born Aug 19 1834 in Charleston, Berkeley, South Carolina.  Her parents are supposedly Solomon Clarke and Elizabeth Bochet.  I would like to verify that information by obtaining some solid records with this information.  Birth records were not kept by the county until after 1900.  Would anyone know where I should start?  This is the information I have from a compiled genealogy:

Solomon Clarke 16 June 1796 St. Stephen Parish, Berkeley, to 2 Nov 1850 same place

Elizabeth Bochet b. abt 1795 South Carolina to 7 May 1856 St. John Parish (like husband)

It seems a good place to begin would be with the parish, but I have no idea how to go about obtaining those records.  Thanks in advance for your help.
