Tell me the name of this cemetery

Postby Bruce Osburn » Mon April 23, 2012, 9:16 pm

There is an old cemetery on Gin Mill Road, about two miles south of Hamlet, in the southeast quadrant of the intersection where Gin Mill Road and Freeman Mill Road cross. What is the cemetery's name?

Bruce, I'm not 100% but I think it might be the Freeman Cemetery.

Wayne,
Thanks for the info. I checked FindAGrave and it is identified as Freeman Family cemetery. I used to go there and read the marker inscriptions when I was a kid, way back in the early 1950s, and was just curious if anyone had entered the names into FindAGrave website. Someone had and I was surprised to see that a burial was made there as late as 2008.

Wayne, is that the Freeman-Leviner Cemetery as listed on the Richmond County GenWeb site?

I did a bit more searching and found that the cemetery I asked about is identified on the Richmond County GenWeb site as the King Freeman Cemetery.

So I guess the person who made the first contribution to FindAGrave in March 2011 for interments in the Freeman Cemetery— and probably the one who identified the cemetery — didn't know that the full name was King Freeman Cemetery.

Just curious, that's all.

King Freeman Cemetery

Postby Betty Freeman Farrell » Tue April 24, 2012, 11:59 pm

My grandfather on my mother's side King Freeman owned this land and had his parents James L and Jane Freeman are buried there altho he and my grandmother chose to be buried in Mary Love Cemetery. My grandfather's sister Lidia Ann Freeman Irwin and husband are burried there and her daughter Varneen Moore was buried there in 1908. My great-grand father on my father's side George Jefferson Freeman donated the land for Mary Love Cemetery. My great-grand fathers James L. and George J. Freeman were brothers.

King Freeman donated the property for Mary Love Cemetery. He reserved the plots on the right just as you enter the Arch going in then cemetery. King Freeman lived in East Hamlet on 5th Street.King Freeman has a Grandaughter that lives in Panama City Fl. and is suppose to be in Hamlet this weekend for a reunion.

Lynn I don't know about that Leviner name attached to it, could be.

This is great! Ask one little question and get a history lesson. If only my history classes had been so interesting.

According to the Richmond County GenWeb web site, the King Freeman cemetery and the Freeman-Leviner cemetery are two and distinctly separate cemeteries.

FindAGrave web site for King Freeman cemetery has ten entries, all made within the past year. Nine of the entries have photos of the markers, and all nine of these entries were made in Oct. 2011. These include four of the names mentioned by Betty Freeman Farrell in her post.

Yes, this is all very interesting stuff.

I have always imagined that the Freeman-Leviner Cemetery is located closer to the community of Osborne, maybe in the vicinity of Pleasant Hill Church. I just don't know its whereabouts; was hoping someone could point me in the right direction so I could visit upon my next NC visit. I have some distant relatives buried there.

I was wondering why Mary Love Cemetery is listed in the Richmond County Cemetery Index.

Wayne, I think you must have meant to include a "not" after the word "is" in your post. Mary Love Cemetery is included; it's just not listed in the primary section of the listing where the boxes are used, but is instead included at the bottom of the listing page. Presume it was an add-on after the primary group of cemeteries was issued, but I really don't know the reasoning.

Mary Love Cemetary

Postby Betty Freeman Farrell » Fri May 4, 2012, 1:10 pm

Wayne, if you go to the



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------Wayne, if you go to this site you can read the history of Mary Love.The article was written by my Aunt and tells why it was named Mary Love and about my great grand father George J. Freeman not King Freeman giving the land. My daughter and I were in Hamlet,Rockingham and Aberdeen last week and had lunch at the Seabord Restaurant,it was very good. Betty Anne and I went to the McDonald renuion on Saturday and we spent some time with my sister Frances in Aberdeen. It was good to see our old hometown.

When my great-grand father gave the land for Mary Love he reserved 128 plots for members of the Freeman family just to the right as you go into the cemetery.Rosalie Freeman Brown was his daughter and you will also find his daughters Virginia Halyburton and Emma Graham and their families buried there. My grandfather Martin Freeman and my parents John and Mattie Freeman and other members of my family are buried there.

This has been very interesting. I would like to thank Bill for the photos of the lesser known areas. My Grandmother, Carrie Thompson McManus has family buried at Silver Run. They grew up in the Hoffman area. Thanks for the photos Bill.
