Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family has been in the central Texas area since the 1840s, so my efforts have been concentrated in that area, mainly in Bandera, Medina and Kendall counties. I am the county coordinator for the Atascosa County, Bandera County, Comal County, Gillespie County and Guadalupe County TXGenWeb sites, which have (and still are) turning up a lot of interesting history. I have also been working on my husband's Gillespie County family tree (I swear he's related to nearly everyone in the county!), and on my son-in-law's family tree, which has me researching in Guadalupe and Comal counties. Between all these, the list of names I'm researching is substantial.

I strongly believe in free genealogical information. That's why I volunteer for as many local genealogy websites as I can find, and I post my results to free genealogy sites. I encourage everyone to add their burial records to this wonderful database, so that these memorials, some fast disappearing, will truly never be lost. If you find your family here, and would like me to transfer ownership of the page to you, please let me know! I'm not into racking up big number counts on my stats. I AM into having family members monitor their own kinfolk's memorial pages! Please request transfers through the memorial page itself. Due to the overwhelming number of correction/addition requests I have been receiving, I may occasionally transfer memorial pages automatically to the requester. PLEASE if you are requesting a transfer, make sure you are logged in to Find A Grave when you make the request so I will have your member number! Also, please be aware that a large number of the memorial pages I have created are my relations, so if you send a request for transfer and I don't immediately comply, it is probably because I am related to that person as well. Usually a flower on the page with the signature "Family Historian" is a tip-off that the person memorialized is a relative.

I happily give permission for my Find A Grave photos to be used by anyone for their family research.

I'd like to acknowledge the invaluable assistance of the intrepid Jane Jahns Rice (thanks, Jane!) for assisting me with photographing the large San Geronimo Cemetery in Seguin, Texas.

Updated photos
I have updated the photos on memorial #61398204 for Martha Lea Ranft. There is now a headstone.

Sammie W. Stevens
Ignore my previous message/question. On Ancestry public trees, I see that some are showing an unmarried partnership of Sammie and a Victoria Griffin. Since my curiosity has gotten the best of me, I must try to research this some more!

Looks like to me that Find A Grave has automatically attached an incorrect daughter to Sammie W.& Thelma B. Stevens. I searched the census and in 1930 they showed no children and in 1940 only a son, Marshall, born ca. 1931.

Adams Family Cemetery
Donna, Just to let you know, there is a mix up on the Adams Family Cemetery and the burials there. It seems that this cemetery was already set up on findagrave in Aug 2003 but in Kerr County by mistake instead of Bandera County. There are 26 (I believe, please see the incorrect location cemetery page) memorial duplicates for this cemetery. I found this when trying to link all of Othro Lee and Georgia Adams' children's memorials to their memorials.

There are many more of their children linked on their memorials that were created for them in 2011 in the Bandera County cemetery than in the incorrect location of Kerr County. There are three of their children linked to the Kerr County memorials.

Since you created many of the correct location cemetery memorials, would it be possible for you to work with the original 2003 memorial creator/managers to have these memorials linked to each other? It will take some work for the corrections, but it will clear up all the confusion.

Hopefully you can follow this--it does gets quite confusing. Please see memorial #s 7810514 and 7810497.

Thank you!! In memory
