Bio and Links
Bio Photo Historian, researcher, avid reader, writer, married for 45 years to beautiful lady, father of a wonderful daughter, grandfather of three boys & one girl, .

I attended Texas Tech University for 6 years and have a Bach. of Architecture professional degree from there (graduated May 1971). Paid my way thru college working construction as a union laborer, washing dishes at Carnation restaurant,and carrying paver bricks for TTU ground maintenance. Got my first job doing architectural drafting in fall of 1968 for Carroll Interiors in Lubbock (Oct. 1968-Dec. 1970). Spent two years active duty in the U.S. Army, 1971-73. Worked the rest of my professional life as an architectural draftsman (44 years) until I retired in May 2009.

Now I spend time reading, relaxing at our cabin in Okla., enjoying our family, and our two English Bull Terrier dogs.

RE: thsnk you
Sure no problem , I was happy to do it !
I apologize for the cleanliness of the headstone , they were weed eating and mowing today , there are hard stickers in some of the grass areas , and I didn't have gloves with me , I'm going back , and will send a cleaned up version !
Where you two in the service together or something ?

William Umland
I have uploaded a picture of William's gravestone. There were also a couple of other relatives (I assume) next to him that I added as well. Mathilde Klopsteck Umland 1849-Aug 17, 1907 and Caroline Klopsteck Apr 4, 1814 - Jun 24, 1899.

RE: thanks
Hi Jerry,

Thank you for your kind words. Yes, it's been a lot of work, but a labor of love. Genealogy is my passion ... my ADDICTION!!

Best Regards,

RE: transfer?
I found an Arthur T Cotton (age 23) with wife Willie (age 22) in the 1920 census in Fort Worth. Then I found an Author J Cotton (age 31) with wife Anna Louise (age 22) in the 1930 census, married about 3 yrs.

Are both of these Arthur Theo Cotton Jr?
