"To live in the hearts of those we leave behind is not to die"

"Think not only upon their passing, remember the glory of their spirit"

I was born 9 Aug 1947 in Atlanta, Fulton Co., Georgia and raised in the southeastern parts of the US ... Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, & South Carolina. I have lived in the Dallas/Ft Worth, Texas area since Aug 1968. I was married 26 Jun 1971 in Ringgold, Catoosa Co., Georgia. My spouse was born 23 May 1951 in Rockville Centre, Nassau Co., Long Island, New York. We met in the DFW area in the Autumn of 1970. We now live in Grand Prairie, Dallas Co., Texas. We have one daughter born 4 Nov 1982 in Arlington, Tarrant Co., Texas. She was married 15 Sep 2009 in Austin, Travis Co., Texas. Her husband was born 21 Jan 1984 in North Yorkshire, England & they now reside together in North Cowton, Richmondshire, North Yorkshire, England.

I have been working on our genealogy since my parents passed away in 1994/95 in Atlanta, Fulton Co., Georgia. Thus far, our family lines entails over 7700 individuals and 39 generations going clear back to the year 1080 in two separate lines beginning in England & France. A third line goes back as far as the year 966 into Flanders and Bugey, France. One of my distant blood relatives is Elizabeth "Bessie" Throckmorton, 1st Lady in Waiting to Queen Elizabeth the 1st of England, who married Sir Walter Raleigh. Countries of origin of individuals migrating to the USA in my family lines are England, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Scotland, & Sweden. My spouse's are Italy (Sicily), Germany, & Prussia.

The following are many of the ancestral family surnames of our research listed in family groupings. My father's are Jackson, Bosworth, McEntyre (McEntire/McIntyre/McIntire), Claspy (Clasby), Potts, Scoggins, Hathaway, Butler, Arthur, Dorsey, Pancoast, Haines, Bryant, Collins, Ogborne, & Scattergood. My mother's are Johnson (Johanson), Osborn, Cox, Mathena (Matheny/Mathenay/Metheneye), Catlin, Rockwell, Emerick (Emerich/Emmeriche), Spence, Robinson, Havens, Tuttle, Henderson, Argenbright, Anderson, Palmer, Lorish, Curry, Sims, Routt, Thorpe, Wentworth, Hales, Swinnowe, Flintell, Throckmorton, Matthew, Hartley, & Scargill. My spouse father's are Sala, Silverberg, LaRosa, & Leggio. My spouse mother's are Bangert, Amberger, Weber, Holzhauer/Holzbauer, & Helfrich. Of course there are more surnames not mentioned. Thank you, Gigi

I just wanted to say what a beautiful tribute you wrote of your friend. To have someone like you in her life was I'm sure a joy for her! From her photo she looks like she was a happy, take life as it comes and deal with it kind of gal, someone we could all hope to emulate. I'm sure Victoria is walking along with you throughout your life and that she is happy and content and out of her health struggles. I wish you love and peace.

Twin Lakes Colo.Carolyn Ruff Hawkins
My family and I went to twin lakes colo and stayd the summer. My parents had a coffee shop and built rooms behind the coffee shop for travelers to rent. Behind all that there was a Log cabin house a ways back from the cabins. WE lived in the house. This was about 1950. My sister and I had so much fun that summer, I will never forget that place. In 1950 there was no electric or water piped in to the house. We had to use gas lamps and an outhouse. My dad had a rain barrel as high as the 2nd story of the house and was able to pump water from the well and it would gravity feed down into pipes water pipes that went into the kitchen. My parents caught a ton of trout(we also rented boats to people) and my dad could cook the best hamburger and make the best pies ever. When winter came we closed everything up and went to Nebraska. I think my dad sold everything in Colo. Oh, we also went to Leadvill to have our clothes washed and to shop.

In working on my Family Tree, I came across you memorial for John Osborn and his son Allen James.

I am looking for details on my Great Grandmother, John's daughter, Mary Grant Osborn. Would you have any information on her or her husband, Aaron Tindall Robertson. I have not had success in my searches on the internet.

Thanks for the help.

RE: Your Story
Thank you so much, Gigi, for your kind words and thoughts! I still get chills when I remember the first time I saw the actual graves of my biological grandparents. I wish Find A Grave had been available back then.

If you want me to transfer your relatives' memorials to you, I'd be happy to do so. Just let me know which memorials you'd like transferred.

Happy New Year!

Johnson ancestors
Hi, I don't know if we have corresponded before but if not we should have. I am kind of the family historian for our family and when my son got married I added my daughter-in-laws ancestors. Her grandfather was Roy A. Johnson who was a brother to John Otto and Pete. Do you know if there are any old family photos? You have done a great job on Find A Grave. Do you have a tree on Ancestry?
