Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy is in my blood, my Mom started me researching our family when I was 18. I now maintain the Henderson County TXGenWeb site, I am a member of the Henderson Couinty Historical Commission and TX A.G.O. (Athens Genealogical Org.)

I like to help out researchers and by adding other names maybe someday someone will add my allusive ancestors.

Go to my Dad's memorial Ray Shumate and leave a flower, he loved motorcycles, airplanes and old cars!!

Transfer requests should only be for DIRECT relatives within four generations. This would be your spouse, children, parents, siblings, grandparents, great-grandparents, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. When requesting a transfer, please state your relationship to the individual.

Any NON-DIRECT relatives (aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. For these extended family members, you can create and add them to your Virtual Cemeteries.

The Genealogists Psalm
Genealogy is my pastime, I shall not stray.
It Maketh me lie down and examine half-buried tombstones. It Leadeth me into still courthouses;
It restoreth my ancestral knowledge.
It leadeth me in paths of census records and ship's passenger lists for my surname's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the shadows of research libraries and microfilm readers,
I shall fear no discourgement.
For a strong urge is within me;
The curiosity and motivation they comforteth me.
It annointeht my head with burning mid-night oil; My family group sheets runneth over.
Surely birth, marriage, and death dates shall follow me all the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the house of a family history seeker forever.

Ira Dabney "Boss" Lewis

My name is Tommy Rush and Ira Dabney Lewis is my great-great grandfather, too!

My mother is Shirley Marie Lewis Rush. My grandfather is Harold Eugene "Katy" Lewis. My great grandfather is Jack Wofford "Doc" Lewis.

I grew up in Temple, TX and now live in Bartlesville, OK.

Do you have any information going past James Jefferson Lewis, our great-great-great grandfather?

James Osgood Andrew Brown
James Osgood Andrew Brown is my g-g grandfather. I am a great granddaughter of his daughter, Elizabeth Helen Music. You have said you are his g-g-g granddaughter. How/where do you fit in the puzzle? Just curious. This stuff fascinates me.

Do you know anything about the Farmers from Van Zandt? I'm looking for the parents of my grandmother, Cynthia Elizabeth Farmer (born October 5, 1861).

I thank you for the reply. Thomas Maclin and I are looking for the Bishop Cemetery. We know the locations of 2 churches where she worshiped, but not her home. I just left a message with a Tippah Co. native in Walnut, and I hope he can help.
