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.

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.

Bishop Family Cemetery
Can you help us locate the Bishop Family Cemetery, burial place of Harriett Bishop (1818-1879)?

There are ay least 2 cemetery creepers that would like to add the directions, location and GPS coordinates.

Bishop Family Cemetery is a new one for us.

Robert Henry Wright
Hi Bunny, Do you have any more information on Robert Henry Wright that would connect him to the family that you suggested. When we do Ancestry on him we get his parents as George and Elizabeth Doughty Wright, but nothing else on them. Just want to make sure; of course we can connect him to Ben and Elizabeth and make changes later. We have the census back to 1870 that has Mary(our g grandmother) on it and then that they were married in 1851.
It would to great to have this connection!
Thanks for your help,(cousin).

Thank you for responding. I have a lot of info on Georgia's father's side. I am not sure if that is what you are wanting or not.

Georgia Ann McCarver Freeman
Hello my name is Arie Donaldson. Georgia is my great grandmother on my father's side. She was married to a John Holly Donaldson. They had two children a set of twins named Albert and Alice. I had heard the story about Georgia's body being lost or destroyed. I was wondering if you knew any info on this. I had been told this but everyone I had talked to did not know what happened. I hope this message finds you doing well. Thank you, Arie Donaldson
