Please change the names of the people depicted from Beasman to BOASMAN. This is the correct spelling. Peggy Templeton is my father's cousin. I also own an original portrait photo of Michael Boasman. Michael is my great great grandfather and Alexander is my great grandfather. Please change your records to reflect the accurate spelling. Peggy Templeton can confirm this too.
You can phone me on (03)87403617 or email.
