Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Air Force Officer with two young children and have restarted my quest for family before they are all gone.

I do document local deaths and happily transfer anyone not in my children's direct line.

I am also actively hunting down my late husband's family for our two children. He was killed in Iraq in 2003 and you can see his pages, yes pages, at the links below. It was the only way to do him justice.

I have made an entry with pictures of the stone for this person under the St. Francis Xavier Cemetery, Brockville. If you think this is the one you were looking for, let me know and I will transfer ownership to you. Note the spelling of the last name.

This person is listed in the St. Francis Xavier Cemetery genealogical listing not the Brockville Old Protestant. When the ground gets dried out I will be making a run to this cemetery and will look for the stone for you.Please change the name of the cemetery on your listing.
According to the listing this is what is recorded:
Fater Ukraenen ZACHARCZUK WASYL 1914 - 1976.
Which dates are correct or are these two different people?

RE: Emmett Clark Pearsall
Thank you for the response. He is not a family member but the others in that cemetery are. Yes, please transfer to me. I will place him appropriately along with some of his other family members. Once again thank you.

Emmett Clark Pearsall
Emmett Clark Pearsall's place of burial is not in the Pearsall Cemetery which you have placed him. That particular Pearsall cemetery in which he is now placed on is located of off Ward Bridge Road outside of Kenansville and he has been misplaced. Emmett Clark Pearsall is buried in a Pearsall family Cemetery which is located at 135 Tram Road, Mt. Olive, NC 28365.

Please make the necessary correction.

William Newlon

Hi Mary, I think we might be cousins. (?)

William Newlon is my 3rd great grandfather on my father's side and I just started researching his ancestors today. It looks like William descended from John Newlon (Newland).b.1659 in Tipporary, Ireland.

I never knew the Frum family had any Irish roots, so that's very exciting news if it turns out to be true.

Have you researched this part of the tree?

It appears that William is the son of Thomas Newlon (1767-1814) and Sarah Powell (1776-1824) and the grandson of James Newlon (1746-1796) and Catherine Bennett (1748-1810) but i haven't verified it yet to add to the memorial.

Still researching,

Joan Frum

Thanks for your suggestion Put in all but living members information. There has been heavy criticism on posting living members information.

RE: Black Walnut Plantation
I haven't gathered as many sources and documents on that line as it wasn't my direct one, but from what I recall David is likely a son of George Symes/Sims of Antigua and Brunswick Co., Virginia, who was the son of George Symes (died c.1698) of Antigua and his wife Dorothy Everard, who died 1724 in Antigua after remarrying Arthur Freeman. George Symes Sr. was a son of Thomas Symes (c.1621-1670) and Amy Bridges Symes (c.1624-1662) of Winterbourne, Gloucestershire, England. I have memorials them, including Dorothy (Everard) Symes-Freeman, which will show you their ancestry in England and Wales.

RE: Black Walnut Plantation
I believe your husband's Sims line goes back to Matthew Sims and Hannah Mitchell who married in New Kent Co., Virginia. If so we're related as Matthew's brother George is my direct ancestor. Take a look at my memorials for Thomas Symes and his wife Amy Bridges Symes in Winterbourne, Gloucestershire, England. They're the ancestors of that group of Virginia Simses.
