Ottilia Reinhard
Hi I was wondering if you are related to Ottilia since you maintain and added a pic of her on here. She would be my sons great grandma X3. John and Ottilia had Edmund which had Barbara that married Francis Marley. Francis and Barbara had Michael J then he had Brian. Brian and I had Braedon. I am doing history for him for him if he's interested when he's older. Thanks for any info!

RE: William Morgan Clark
I am related by marriage. He is my wife's ancestor.

However, I don't have an answer right now, and will be out of pocket for several weeks without access to my information.

I will see if I can get an answer in the meantime, but, don't be surprised if you don't hear from me until some time in May.

RE: Melvin-Lewis Cemetery
I read at one point someone maintains this, but I forget who. It is primarily just an abandoned cemetery. There were many more bodies buried here than were first realized. Construction crews had to push back bodies as they were clearing this area for parking lots and buildings.

Yes I live in Tyler. About your Grand mother, you probably need to also look for her using her maiden name.

RE: Your GrandMother at Swan
There could have been a Swann funeral home, but now "Swan" is just a small bump on Texas Hwy.69 north.If her husband and other relatives are buried at Pine Springs, then most likely she is also.

Your GrandMother at Swan
Dear Connie, if I knew your Grand mothers name I could try to help you find her. As for Cemeteries near Swan, TX. There is the Mt. Sylvan cemetery, Drovers cemetery, Sand Flat cemetery, Lindale City cemetery, there too many to mention. Most of the country cemeteries are identified by the families buried there, like Drovers cemetery has a very large number of Malones buried there.
Let me know if I can Help.

Longview connection
Candy, don't know if you will remember me at all, but I visited your brother Billy many, many times on Schofner St. Wore that basketball goal in the driveway out. I just enjoyed visiting with Billy at a mini reunion. I live in Liberty City abt 10 miles from White Oak. You would have known my younger siblings Norman, Terry, Kathy, and Mona. I began my Rowden family tree again in earnest last Sept when my older brother, Johnny, died. Most all of my immediate family are buried at Lakeview as will I be someday. Count me as your resource for anything you need here in the Longview area. If you like, we can add each other to our F/G friends list. Gary

RE: Madgie McBride
Well it's a mystery to me too! I no longer live in Longview but am still in Texas not too far outside of Dallas in a tiny town called Mabank. Until a few months ago, my twin brothers lived in Longview and Gladewater but they moved here as we are all getting older (they are 10 years older than me) and we recently lost our 93 year old mom. I am thrilled to have them here and see them almost every day! Thanks for your time in trying to figure out why your mom looks familiar to me! I sure hope it is cooler in Colorado than it is in TX today! Take care... Mary

RE: Madgie McBride
Hello Connie (er..Candy!)
I graduated from PT in 1976 and the Mrs. McBride I remember was I think from my freshman year around 1972/73. I only had her for "home room" and I have no memory of what she taught. So it looks like your dear mom is not the same Mrs. McBride but still she looks familiar to me. Did your mom own a floral shop near the intersection of Gilmer Rd. and Pine Tree Rd.? If the answer to this one is no then I have no clue how I might have known her! Tks! Mary

Madgie McBride created memorial # 54011238 for Madgie McBride. Did she ever work as a teacher in the Pine Tree school system? Although the photo on the memorial is her as a young person, she looks so familiar to me and reminds me of a Mrs. McBride I had for homeroom at one time. Tks... Mary Black Martinson

RE: Theratia Delilah Gregory Brumbelow and Joseph Brumbelow
My mother, Betty Ann, remembers traveling from Alabama to Tyler, Texas for the reunions! If I were a betting woman, I'd say you have met. You are the same age.

I've always heard that we are Cherokee, but I don't know from which line. I did a quick check through the Dawes roll and saw quite a few people listed with the Gregory surname. They were mostly identified as Choctaw, Creek, and Cherokee.

I do remember Uncle Claude. Most of my mother's family has olive skin and high cheekbones. The picture of Theratia looks EXACTLY like my Grandma Flora. The genes are strong in our family.

I LOVE learning about our family! If I am able to get a copy of the ad, I will most definitely share!

Nice to talk to you, cousin!

Theratia Delilah Gregory Brumbelow and Joseph Brumbelow
Ms. Davis,

Theratia and Joseph Brumbelow were my great-great (maternal) grandparents. Nettie Brumbelow Earwood, their daughter, was my great grandmother. I, too, have heard all my life about Theratia being Cherokee. The story goes that she was a nurse-midwife who traveled around Morgan and Cullman counties (in Alabama)to deliver babies. She also had a tonic/panacea that she sold. I have seen the ad that ran in the Birmingham paper, and I just asked my aunts for a copy. My grandmother, Flora Holbert, used to tell me stories about how Theratia was a tall woman who could ride a horse bareback. Apparently, she had an intimidating presence due to her height and serious nature. I was told that she wore her hair in a long braid down her back. I don't know the truth/validity of these descriptions, but they've been around in my family for as long as I can remember!

RE: America Gregory Hendon
Hi Connie,

Sorry, but I do not know Mr. Brumelow's first name or if any children were born from America's first marriage. Also, I came across nothing about Indian ancestry in my research. Good luck in your research!

RE: Sarah Elizabeth Wallace Pruitt
I have looked high and low on the cemetery and all I can find is general descriptions. All I found was this on our GenWeb site: "Mr. Jim Pruitt of California wrote to her about Hester Cemetery. He said that his grandmother Margaret M Pruitt born May 1, 1838, died March 15, 1867, was married to William Malone Pruitt July 12, 1854. Margaret was the daughter of Thomas and Mary Daniels. Margaret is buried in the old cemetery that is now on the Hester Farm in Upshur County. Possibly and probably Thomas & Mary Daniels are there too." It appears people in Eastern Wood County and Western Upshur County were buried there after it was initially used as a cemetery. Sorry I can't help more.

Miriam Malone
RE: Chrystine Conn
Chrystine Conn (aka Aunt Crick) was related to me by marriage. She was married to my great-uncle, Jim Conn, (my maternal grandmother's baby brother). She was a remarkable woman all her life, and especially in her last years when she continued to live on her own. My mother and I attended her funeral, where it was evident that she was well-loved by the community as well as her family. Were you there too? Thanks for asking.

RE: Susannah McBride Wallace
Yes I am related to Susannah and her family. I knew she lost her husband on the trip to Texas. I think someone from her sons' families did the newer marker. Not sure. I would love to know about the McBride family as well as the Wallace family from your end. I am here on the Texas end. Keep in touch.
