Bio and Links
I have been doing ancestral research for about 30 years. By being involved in searching records and information, I have made many new friends (fellow researchers) and met family members who have become personal friends. This is a great (and addictive) hobby that had opened the lives of my antecedents and their migration across North America from the European Continent for me. Just finding names is not the goal for me. I want to know how they made their living, what the times were like, and just get to know the individuals as personally as I can. By combining history, country, and economics, it is easier to create an interesting even though incomplete canvas of the journey of one's life. Sometimes I only have a name, but I never stop seeking a clue here and there. Sometimes my efforts are rewarded but more often, the secrets are still floating in the hazy gauze of time.

I am a retired executive and newspaper correspondent retiring from director of a senior citizens center. I retired from the American Red Cross working in health, safety, service to military families, and disaster as volunteer, paid staff, instructor and instructor trainer.

The pictures that I take for Find A Grave may be used in your research and transfered at will. I hope that they help you in your endeavors.

Most all photos I take in Englewood Cemetery in Slaton, Texas will have life dates, burial date, and location of grave if you click on the pictures.

Thank you so much for the beautiful photos of the headstones of my dad's cousin J. C. Champion and his wife Helen. I truly appreciate your time and effort.

I noticed on my dads marker there are no dates of birth or death. If it's still like that I need to contact Sadler Monument. I've moved to Washington State but I thought when I saw the stone it at least had his date of birth on it.

RE: Birtha Angeline Martin
Ok Julia Anna Adams and Elizabeth "Lizzie" Woods were the wives of Mitchell Clark "M.C." Martin who is the father of J.D. Martin. Birtha was the wife of J.D. Martin (Not Jerry) Jerry is J.D.'s son. Sorry for any confusion. Sorry it took so long to answer, I haven't been doing much genealogy in the last couple of years. Hope this helps.

Birtha was married to J.D. Martin. Jerry is the son of J.D. but not Birtha. Hope that helps. ~~Lynne

Henry Hunt
Henry Hunt was my 6th great grandfather. Thank you for this page on him. I have been trying to learn how William Hunt, Sr. became linked as a son of Rev. Robert Hunt of Jamestowne, VA. I cannot find a son for Robert named William. I believe that this is incorrect. Thank you. Email me directly if you wish at
