My g-grandfather Edward Stilts married Rachel Shemeley/Shemelia in 1892. Rachel was the daughter of Benjamin and Beulah Shemeley. Edward died in 1943 while Rachel died in 1925. Both are buried in Brotherhood Cemetery in Mt. Holly--Hainesport ,actually.
Is there anyone out there researching this family? I have seen at least three spellings for the name. Like so many of our early families, there is a great deal of duplication among their given names. William, Benjamin, and Rachel were particularly popular names in this line.
My Shemeley family members were primarily from the Pemberton/ Lumberton areas of Burlington Co.. I would be happy to share any information I have on this line. Thanks!
