Bio Photo Geraldine Patterson Humes

30 Oct 2014 - Life is going pretty well and with the new edit feature, I've been keeping up pretty well. Thanks for your patience the last two or so years.

Wife, Mother of 3 Sons. Grandmother to 8.
Live in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, California. Glad to help out with photos or genealogy if I have time available. I have most if not all the photos in a higher quality. IF YOU WANT A HIGHER QUALITY PHOTO, LET ME KNOW AND I'LL ARRANGE FOR YOU TO GET ONE.

If you want me to add information on someone I posted, let me know. I create memorials from photos taken in local cemeteries (or where I travel) and from obituaries (some even across the country). If I have made a mistake or something needs correcting please let me know. I try to add every thing in the correct way, but I'm sure sometimes I make a mistake. If you E-Mail me make sure you put FindAGrave in the subject line or it might get deleted. Hopefully one day a family member will see a loved one I entered listed here on Find A Grave. E-mail me and let me know if you do. I've been thrilled when I find a memorial for a relative and so happy when someone thanks me for creating a memorial.

To avoid duplications, send me info to add or if you are a direct descendant or other close relative, ask me to transfer management to you. Gerry

RE: John Patterson Memorial# 46199805
Gerry, I found a family tree on Ancestry (Solum Family Tree) that lists John Henry Patterson, born 30 Dec 1855 in Boone Co.,Mo. and died 18 Sept 1937 in San Antonio Texas. He married Bessie Jordan. If you don't have an Ancesry account, you can get a free 7 day access I think they still offer that. His father, Jefferson Davis Patterson.

Found this John and Dina (buried at Golden Pond) on the census......says he was born in Tennessee and was working for a man named York. Wife Dina. No children listed.

RE: John Patterson Memorial# 46199805
Gerry, unfortunately the book does not list Greenup Patterson's children, other than Jefferson, and does not mention a brother that came to Stonewall County, either. It says that Greeup had 11 children, and brought them to Hays County from Joplin, Missouri in 1871. Perhaps the son John might not have survived to adulthood.
Jefferson D. Patterson was the fourth son., and as you probably know, had only two children, Jeff Jr (married Vada Rash) and Annie who died unmarried I think.
Jeff Davis Patterson SR. married Mittie Lee Ward.
I am sorry that I couldn't help more.

RE: John Patterson Memorial# 46199805
Gerry, I will have to go look at my book and see what I can find for you. The book is "Stonewall County, Beyond the Forks of the Brazos" and was published by the Stonewall Hist. Commission I think in 1979.
I think it is out of print now, but I will see if I can find an address for it, if it turns out to be your Pattersons. I think there was a section in biographies for them.

RE: Richard Lawrey
Thanks, Gerry, for establishing a memorial to my cousin and then transferring it to me. I had lost touch with this branch of my family many years ago. Thanks, also, for all the time and effort you put in to helping make Find A Grave so successful.

RE: Sandra Humes @ Hilltop
You are welcome. I'll keep looking for her. A fellow grave hunter and I will be working in Hilltop for a while and may run across something--you never know. I understand that the town may also be working on getting a more accurate record of Hilltop's burials. I will certainly let you know if we discover anything.

RE: Sandra Humes @ Hilltop
Hi. The only headstone I was able to find was the mother's. I dug around a bit nearby her headstone to see if one was buried under all the pine needles, but there wasn't anything for Sandra. Sorry.

I also tried to find Baby Flaugh's grave. Are you also attached to this grave? I found markers by Tom and Mabel Flaugh and also one by Simon and Ida Flaugh. Do you know the parents of Baby Flaugh?

Let me know and I can send you the photos.
