Bio and Links
Bio Photo Both my parents were only children and never talked much about family. Through my love of genealogy I have learned what I know about my ancestors.

Most of the memorials I have made are for relatives of my family or of my late husband's. Please send a SAC if you have additional information or corrections. I will make them as soon as possible.

Andrew Crawford Cemetery-Panola County, TX
Hi Eleanor: I saw that you created the three memorials for this cemetery. Andrew Crawford 4015622, Mary Scott Crawford 44015669 and their daughter, Rebecca Crawford Steger 100281397. My question to you is if there are others buried there. I am looking for their daughter, Harriet N. (Angelina) Crawford, b. 1829 d 1869. She married John Jackson Wills on Dec. 14, 1847 in Pike County, GA.

She was on the 1860 census living in Panola, TX. I have her death in Sugar Hill, Panola, TX, but no actual source. I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Georgina Hopson Lamar
Dear Eleanor, I am wondering if you are related in any way to Georgina (Hopson) Lamar. Her father, William Allis Hopson and his brother fought in the Civil War with William as a Confederate and Edward as a Union soldier. My great grandmother, Elizabeth (Hopson) Baker was their sister. I have several transcripts of letters between the brothers and their siblings during the war plus a family Hopson photograph I'd love to share if you are a descendant! Cheers, Charlet Emery Roskovics, Massachusetts

Sorry I don't see any proof there- only that her name was said to be Rebecca Ann Lamar- in the profile.
