Most people who know me well know I am an avid genealogist bordering on obsession. I have been actively researching my family history for fourteen years now & among my favorite haunts are libraries, cemeteries & courthouses. It is my mission, hope & prayer in this life to ensure that those who came before are not forgotten & if I can help to accomplish that in some small way, then so much the better.|

Thanks for creating the memorial for Roxie Houston, who is actually a great aunt to me. I was particularly interested to see that you had a photograph of her, which leads me to hope you are related.
This past Wednesday, I spent the day in Milam County along with a cousin from out of state. He has been a serious genealogist and family historian for 40+ years. I live in Longview, and he was in town tending to his parents, both now in their 90s. It was all we could do spend a few hours in Milam County on a day trip just over 500 miles.
Our great grandparents, Bill (William Jasper) and Mattie Lindsey, had 10 of their 16 children while living in Milam County. Bill's parents, James Monroe and Sarah Lindsey (Little River Baptist Church Cemetery), and his grandfather, William Lindsey (Port Sullivan Cemetery) are buried in Milam County.
The William Lindsey buried in Port Sullivan had 24 children by two wives, and his son James Monroe Lindsey is but one of many descendants we expect stayed in the area.
Bill and Mattie lived out their lives in Upshur County. Their 16 children all had large families, producing 116 grandchildren for this couple. After Bill's death, Mattie was featured in newspapers worldwide in a Ripley's Believe It or Not feature, citing her for the largest number of descendants of anyone living, so far as could be determined.
Bill and Mattie's descendants have an active family organization and ongoing genealogy effort. We are anxious to be in contact with Lindsey relatives in Central Texas, others descended from the William Lindsey buried at Port Sullivan, which would include his son James Monroe Lindsey buried at Little River.
Besides the Lindsey surname, we know there were multiple marriages into families named Majors and Houston, including Roxie Lindsey Houston.
We have had little success dialing phone numbers out of the Cameron telephone book.
There is some talk of a chartered bus tour for our family into Milam County next year. We are hoping to be in touch with long lost relatives. Very few of the descendants of Bill and Mattie Lindsey have ever been to Milam County, so visiting the home of our grandparents and birthplace of many of their children would be wonderful.
Bill and Mattie Lindsey were share cropping in Milam County for ten years beginning in the 1890s, and they moved within the county frequently. We are hoping someone there might help us identify other Lindsey descendants, and the places where the family lived.
Sorry so long, but I was inspired by your access to Roxie's picture, and hope you may be able to help us contact relatives in the area.

I figured it was the same person, not the first time I've seen the dates off like that. The headstone was probably put up much later by someone that didn't have the death cert. I can put the picture on her page and delete mine if that is acceptable to you?

I can't do that since I am not the one who created the memorial.
