The picture listed of Godfrey Tatman looks like a photo found at my grandmother's house. I was told that he was my grandfather's great, or great-great grandfather. My grandfather was James Tatman (Jim) married to Ida Hall Tatman from Opelousas, Louisiana (Saint Landry). I was actually named after my grandfather's mother - Malinda Tatman. I find it interesting that where most spell Malinda, Melinda. My name and that of a family aunt (my grandfather's sister) is spelled Malinda. I've additionally noticed that there are many reports of this family spelling of Malinda in the Tatman family line. Quite interesting.
