Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native Texan, born and reared in Northeast Texas. I have been researching my families for about thirty years, making me the family historian.
I have spent weeks, days, and hours in many states researching the courthouses and walking the cemeteries looking for my family.
Just recently I began placing memorials to my family members on findagrave; a wonderful website. The majority of my postings are my family.
I try to acquire photographs of my relatives; this makes me feel as if I actually know them.
I am a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas and genealogy is my passion.
FATHER
MOTHER

Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you

Ann Hampton Hamilton was my 4 g grandmother, too. I descend from Joseph Hampton Hamilton. I know she outlived all of her children. Do you know why/ how she ended up in Paris, TX? Which child is your ancestor? I would like to correspond with you about our Hamilton ancestors via e-mail. My e-mail address is: ericrandall1134@bellsouth.net
Thanks,

RE: Shrum family
I think we may be connected in some way. My Shrums came from Missouri. If my research is correct, they also descended from Johann Jacob Shrum (Schramm).
My great grandfather's name was Benjamin Franklin Shrum. He died in 1947 Weatherford, Parker County, Texas; I think his father was Andrew Shrum.

Transfer Cox Family
I am transferring the Cox family to you. I know that you will take care of them or transfer them to the correct people, if need be. My health is failing and I cannot finish them. I would appreciate your doing so, if you can. If not, just transfer them back and I will simply transfer them to F.A.G.
My Cox and Weathersby family from Thomas and Grady Co in Georgia, I feel sure connect to these.

Thank You

Winn
