I am researching Bledsoe, Kimberlin, Myers, Freeman, Chappell, Spurgeon, McCart, Hinze, Thome, Wischnowsky, Palfreeman, Arnold and Eppstein. This is a great site, and I have found it to be very useful in gathering family data.
Thanks to all the contributors!
Something I did not know and just now found out from another contributor:
Find a Grave has implemented a new way to submit Edits! Unfortunately, there are far too many members for Find a Grave to notify everyone via email, so it's up to us to get the word out. If every member posts this message (or similar) in their profile, hopefully we can help spread the word.
To suggest a correction (SAC) click on the edit tab of the memorial that needs to be corrected. Then click on the link which best describes where your edit should occur. Enter your correction, when you're done, click submit edit. Your request will be sent to the manager of the memorial and will appear in the managers' profile under the Edits tab.
Managers will no longer receive emails. They must go directly to their profile page and click on the Edits tab. Managers can approve, deny or ignore, suggested corrections. It's quick and easy!
The exception: Requesting a transfer other corrections are still handled the same way. Click on "suggest any other correction or addition," type your message and press "send this message." The manager of the memorial will receive an email.
RE: Jones/Kimberlin info Elaine I will add you to my Find A Grave friends. My daughter is on Ancestry. Beth Hebert. We are working together on this. Went to Hillsboro and Cleburne on Monday. Having fun. If you need anything...let me know and if we can find it, we will. I just got some great photos of Gertie Jones from someone my dtr has friended! What is your Ancestry ID?
Gertie Bell Kimberlin Hi Elaine! Your great aunt Gertie's youngest child, Ben Hill is the father of my husband's half sister. Is it possible you might have any photos of B. H. Jones. The sister died as an infant, so no photos have been found for her. We are turning every stone to see if we can get a photo of BH through family members. Please let me know if you are able to help!

RE: Jesse Freeman parentage Hi Elaine, thanks for your comment. Josiah Freeman did have a son named Jesse who was born about 1788, but he is not the same Rev. Jesse Freeman b. 1804 d. 1885 in Fayette County, Al who married Rebecca Rachel Cole. Jesse and Rebecca Cole Freeman are my 4x great grandparents and I've done quite a bit of research on them. Jesse Freeman had a Grandson named Jesse Cole Persinger who wrote an autobiography and he mentions his Great grandfather Nicholas Hawkins Freeman and his two sons, "These two boys were the only children and they both made Methodist preachers and both married daughters of William B. Cole. The oldest of these boys, Jesse located near Zion Church where he reared his family, one son and two daughters." Jesse's son James L. Freeman is my 3x great grandfather. Jesse's brother and Nicholas Hawkins Freeman's other son was James Hawkins Freeman who married Matilda Cole. Josiah Freeman would be this Jesse Freeman's grandfather.
As far as Susannah Baker goes I have that Nicholas Hawkins Freeman married Susannah Baker daughter of Obidiah Baker and his wife Rachel. I have no doubt that John Jackson Freeman married a Susannah Baker as well, it is more than likely that the two Susannah's are closely related, but I don't believe they are the same person. If you have some documentation that proves otherwise I would love to know.
I hope this clears things up, please let me know if you have any questions or research you would like to share. Thanks!-Amber
RE: Re # 21271900 David Thome is recorded by the GAR Post 42 and the National Park Service Soldiers and Sailors Rosters of Veterans and by GAR Records at NSHS. Since he has a private stone, there is no engraving on the stone, which is common for that type of stone. If he had a military stone, the record would be there. He is posted in our National SUVCW database, and will continue to be there. http://www.suvcwdb.org Merle Rudebusch, Graves Redistration OFFicer SUVCW
