I live in South Carolina and found a turtle next to our church. There is not much water around and it is very small(a little larger than a gold dollar). It is a dark gray to a light black with yellow marks at the tip of its shell. On the bottom it has red dots around the outer edge. There are no markings on its head or feet.
Thanks for any help,
Andrew

Try http://www.chelonia.org/bygeography.htm and see turtles are native to your area.

I could be wrong, but it sounds like some kind of a painted turtle to me. Search in google for \"painted turtle\" and see if the pics match.

good luck!
