Bio and Links
I retired after 30 years as Director of Financial Aid for McMurry University in 1998. Since that time, I have taken a part time position with The College of Saint Thomas More in Fort Worth. My hobby is genealogy and enjoy being able to get out and fulfill photo requests when my health will allow.

Sovereign Popplewell 1817
has Isaac Popplewell b 1808 linked as his son but that means he was 9 yrs old when Isaac was born. Can you or someone unlink this. The Sovereign father of this Isaac was born in 1787. Thanks

Means/Riley
AM SO GLAD to hear from you Corky! I've seen your name on memorials and I knew you had to be related! Okay by marriage, but so glad to find you! I know your husband is a cousin, not sure how far out, but guessing 4th cousins. I will send you an e-mail via the e-mail address you have posted rather than to discuss family info publicly.... will try to attach the entire Riley genealogy to it, it is very long, over 300 pages, going back to 1620 I believe.....

Means & Riley genealogy
Hi Corkey... if you are not related to Elvira McWilliams Means; James Cravens Means; Janira McBride Riley; William Elsberry Riley; and William Isaac Riley I would love it if you would allow me to manage their memorials. Elvira and James are my 3X great grandparents, as are Janira and William. Thank you so much for any info you may have.... but I also have quite a lot that may be of interest to you if you ARE related.... THANK YOU!

Martha A and Martha Jane
Hi Corky! I believe Martha Jane Young Frensley's mothers name was Martha A. The stone looks like an A to me. Thanks. Hope you are well. I submitted a suggestion but thought I would also say hello.

You state that George Nye (1779-1854) was the son of George Nye and Susanna Knode.
George Nye was the husband of Susanna Knode.
He was the son of George Nye(1755-1821) and Mary Magdalena Saylor (Sailor).

Rachel Ward Reed and James W. Reed
Could you transfer Rachel Ward Reed (14189091) and James W. Reed (14189085) to me? I'm their direct descendant and have some more info on them that I'd like to add to their pages. Thank you!
