Bio and Links
Bio Photo Pleased to be here. My hope is that I have helped someone along their way in discovering some small fact in their quest of finding family connections by placing these memorials on this great site.


*I found out the hard way that virtually all of the bio info one places on their precious memorials they created, makes its way directly to world connect rootsweb, family search and ancestrydotcom, and many other personal blogs and sites with no credit of original ownership in place. This is only important if that issue matters to you.

Freeman Monuments
I have made a very thorough survey using a special technique for reading and a talent for digging out broken stones containing inscriptions. I have found about 50 more than what is on FINDAGRAVE, but not ready to release it to the public until I am through processing the data. However as good as that is it is not absolute proof the Freemans are not there in the Old City Shelbyville Graveyard so I will concede. I just wanted to confirm it was not like the one that said a party died in Flat Creek and was buried here in Shelbyville. That makes me a bit suspicious of that one because there is an old cemetery in Flat Creek that old pioneers could have been buried.

Have a great day.

Freemans in t old City Cemetery
Wht evidence do you have that shows these Freemans might be in the Old City Cemetery of Shelbyville Tenn (Bedford Co) I just completed a thorough survey and review of the historical records of that cemetery and did not see your facts.

Oh ok, I didn't realize. If you told me and I just forgot, my apologies. I sometimes get so many ops going at once I occasionally forget where I'm at!

Thanks again, Tom

Hi Joan,

Update; I contacted the funeral home that handled Erik's funeral and they confirmed what you apparently know already; Erik was cremated and the ashes given to a relative, most likely his wife Susan.

RE: Susan Clark
Joan, I deleted Susan. I believe I got that from our cemetery book and have never been in the Mayfield cemetery. Thanks for the information.

Your note on Stephen Hamlin 1s memorial

I saw your note on Stephen Hamlin 1s memorial.

I have been researching the Hamlin family ancestry for over 40 years, and compiled a database of over 40,000 descendants of Stephen Hamlyn 1, who came to America from England in 1634, and settled in Surry County, Virginia. If you descend from Stephen 1, you belong in the database too, and I am eager to share my discoveries with you. Heres what I propose to send you:
- A personal Ancestor Report, generation by generation, showing birth, spouse, marriage, death, and burial information for all your Hamlin ancestors (from you to Stephen-1)
- A Kinship Report (identifies your kinship to all your Hamlin ancestors)
- A Relationship Chart (shows how you and I are related)
- A Descendant Report, generation by generation, showing birth, spouse, marriage, death, and burial information for all Stephen-1 descendants

All of my information is in a system called Family Tree Marker from which I can very easily create a wide range of reports, like the four above. Thumbnail photos are included on the reports when available. The reports are suitable for permanent binding.

If you have a computer and email, simply send me an email at my address below.

Hoping to hear back from you.

RE: Absalom Pursel 167927511
I also found and created memorials for Absalom Pursel, 167927511 & Catharine "Boyer" Pursel, his wife, 167927536 at Greenwich Cemetery. If the records I found on Ancestry are correct he was William and Mary Ann "Iliff" Pursel's son and so I linked him with them. If those records were incorrect, let me know and I will remove them as his parents.
