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.

RE: Andrew Crawford Cemetery-Panola County, TX
It's a mess alright. I just took another look and am totally baffled. The 1850 Census shows her as Harriet N. with her birth year abt 1839. I changed the birthdate to 1829 going by the 1860 Census with Angelina on it. It's a mess. I think I really made it a mess. It's so messed up that now that I'm looking at it, I feel sick to my stomach. I've got this girl, Angeline as Harriet N and I don't think she even belongs to the Crawford family. And if that's so, what happened to Harriet N.????

Any help you can give to untangle this mess would be most apprecciated.

Many thanks. TONI

RE: Edward Thomas Randle
Eleanor, Thanks for getting back to me. I should have looked more closely at the dates on your memorial. My bad. I have a headstone photo of the Edward Thomas Randle that died at Austin in 1876. I have created a memorial for him and have asked the lady that took the pictures for me to add his headstone photo. Thanks again, Connie

Edward Thomas Randle
I had a photo request in Austin, Travis, Texas for Edward's granddaughter and they did a span picture and it included the headstone of Edward T. Randle. He died in Austin so, it makes sense. I am wondering if, your memorial is correct or if, he had recognition in both cemeteries. I did not make a memorial for him in Oakwood Cemetery, in Austin, thinking you might like to do it. I see you seem to have done alot of work on the fmaily. Connie

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.
