This page is a memorial to
John W. Hamblen
25 September 1924 - 5 September 2002
Hamblen was a founding member of the Brown County Genealogical Society
and contributed much time and energy to the Society. One of his major
concerns was directed toward the preservation of the cemeteries of Brown
County. He was instrumental in setting up the Taggart and Hamblen/
Taylor Cemeteries Association, Inc. of Brown County.
A couple of years ago John
very generously gave copies of some of the documents concerning the formation
of the Association to the administer of the Society's web site to be posted
on the web site of the Brown County Genealogical Society so that these
documents might be helpful to others who might wish to form a similar association
and create perpetual care for their own family cemeteries.
These documents are:
Letter Requesting Pledges (available later)
are free to use these documents to help you start your own organization.
We hope that they will prove to be beneficial in your endeavors.
