Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on genealogy for about 18 years. My two best friends were into it and nearly drove me crazy, for that is all they could talk about. So, I decided it was either join them or find new friends. Guess which I did.

I do not know hardly anything about my biological dad and his family so I have worked on both sides of my mother's family. My grandmother, Frances Kernelia McDaniel married my grandfather, James "Jim" Albert Anderson. This is the two families I have worked on.

I have written one book on my McDaniel family, with index it is about 1000 pages. Now I am working on a book for the Anderson line. Having problems getting information from the Anderson's, so this book will probably be only 1/2 the size as "My McDaniel Family" book was.

With my granddaughters, we have been all over Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas getting information, pictures, copies of birth, marriage and death certificates. I have many original marriage license. We tramped many cemeteries getting information and taking pictures of headstones. We met so many wonderful family members.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the many hours I have spent on my Genealogy, and now working on the Find A Grave site. I have so many with all their information except the name of the cemetery they are buried in. I have tried to hunt down as many as I could.

If anyone can give me additional information, please do. If I can ever help anyone with information on my McDaniel or Anderson lines, please contact me.

I want to thank some of my cousins and good friends for all the help they have given me the past several years. Linda Christenburg Moody Brown. If it were not for you, I would not have all the work on our McDaniel ancestors. May God bless you. Randy Bryan, sharing pictures and stories passed down from his dad, Merry Lynn Weatherby, Fain McDaniel, Jimmie McDaniel, Jimmie Stravlo and too many more to name. Thanks to all of you for your help.
