I have been doing genealogy for about 8 years now. I like to go out with my mom & take photos of headstones for people. I have alot of family listed on this web site. The Hennings,Clements,& Hardin familys. I live in Victoria Tx. with my 2 girls.
Sulema Garcia Basquez Did you get the information for Sulema from a tombstone in the McDonald Cemetery? I am asking because her surname should be Vasquez as well as Antonio Basquez, but the family I spoke with said they had hear the name was misspelled with a "B" in the past. Just wondering how it is spelled on the stone.
Berger Community Cemetery Would you know who would have records or knowledge of whom all is buried there? We are trying to locate baby Robert Kohl est. birth 1892 thru 1895 died at about 2 1/2 years old.
Warren Elmo Schulze Dear Prudence, The information that is listed for Warren Elmo Schulze 16731908 is incorrect. It states that he only has one son, Patrick. He actually has two sons. The other is Chief of Police Arnie Darrell Schulze of the Cut and Shoot, Texas police department. Arnie Schulze also has two sons that are the grandsons of Warren Elmo Schulze. Christopher Schulze of Fort Worth, TX and Robert Schulze of Plano.
RE: Haley Family Hi...I would like to know if their mite be a Rachel L. Pennington Haley in your cemetery...1830-March 23,1847.
Hi Prudence, for the O'Malley Cemetery there are some infants which carry only the last name Haley without any specifics on first or middle name, or year of death. So the answer is a squishy maybe, but not likely.
Hi Prudence, I did some more research about the Clements family and discovered that the Manning Clements who served the Confederacy in Alabama is a different man with the same name as the one who served in the Texas Rangers. I am still looking for details of his military service. Thank you.
I tried your email with no luck, so I am leaving a public message.
Are you a Clements descendant? I research Bram(b)let(t)(e)s. I saw your posting on Manning Clements. I'm researching him because of his connection to Hellen Effie Bramlette as father-in-law.
I have his NARA Compiled Service Records for service in the Tuscaloosa Alabama Prison Guards. He must have gone to Texas during the war and joined the Texas Border Rangers? I see that is inscribed on one of his grave markers. Do you know his Texas unit?
And I see he once was a member of the notorious John Wesley Hardin gang.
His Alabama war service summary:
Listed as Manning, Manen, M. and Manon Clements.
Private, Private, Capt. Powell's Tuscaloosa Guards, Alabama, and Capt. C. D. Freeman's Company B, Prison Guard/Freeman's Company A, Prison Guard, Battalion, Salisbury, N.C., C.S.A.
Enlisted April 1, 1862, Tuscaloosa, Ala.; re-enlisted; detailed as shoemaker; served at least until Feb. 28, 1863. No details about discharge or transfer.
I found the following obit.
The April 2, 1887, edition of The Ballinger Eagle reported Emanuel Manning Clements II was killed in a gunfight at the Alamo saloon in Ballinger, Runnels Co., Tex.:
"Manning Clements Killed. A pistol shot was heard near night Tuesday afternoon in the Alamo saloon on 7th street, and it was soon learned that the ever-present six-shooter had got in its deadly work on Manning Clements, a stockman of McCulloch county, who has been in Ballinger several weeks shipping stock. Clements was a first cousin to John Wesley Hardin, and like the noted John Wesley had spent more than one man to his long home. For the last several years had led a quieter life than in his younger days, having married and settled down. The evidence taken at the inquest by Judge Hargrove Tuesday night and Wednesday morning discloses substantially the following facts: Deputy Sheriff Joe Townsend, Sheriff Formwalt and Manning Clements were in the Alamo saloon. The two latter had been drinking, and Formwalt had fired off his pistol in Hamilton and Conner's saloon a short while before. Townsend was endeavoring to secure his pistol. Formwalt was drawing his pistol, and Townsend had seized it, when Clements with an oath ordered him to stop, and was leveling a pistol which he had in the meantime drawn, on Townsend. Retaining his hold upon Formwalt's pistol, Townsend instantly fired, the ball entering about an inch above Clement's left eye, ranging backward and upward. Clements fell to the floor in a sitting posture and immediately expired. His pistol was in his hand at full cock after he died, showing in all probability Townsend only escaped death by depriving Clements of his life. The Odd Fellows, of which society he was a member took charge of the body and prepared it for interment and expressed it to the home of the dead man. He leaves a wife, one daughter and son" (Vol. 5, No. 31 Whole No. 239).
As I understand it, Hellen Effie Bramlette married Manning "Mannie" Clements, son of Mary Ann "Molly" Robinson and Manning "Mannen" Clements II (Jr.) and grandson of Emanuel "Manning" Clements I (Sr.) and Martha Balch Hardin. This Emanuel "Manning" Clements is son of William Clements? Martha is sister to John Wesley Hardin, son of a preacher, who was Texas' deadliest outlaw after the Civil War. Hellen Effie Bramlette Clements' brother Pat Bramlette joined the Hardin Gang and he was later killed in Kansas in a saloon shootout in 1892. The Bramlettes are children of Louisa Mariah "Louise" "Lou" Thomas and Mack Henry "McHenry" Bramlette of Bedford County, Va., and Frio Co., Tex. McHenry served as a soldier during the Mexican War and in the Arizona Brigade in Texas during the Civil War. McHenry descends from Anna Ballard and Rev. William Bramblett who lived in Bedford County in the 1760s-1770s and from William Bramlett I, an early settler of the county in 1754.
Clements Family Info Hi my name is Kay Hull...my mom is Patsy Lee Clements McCargish, she is the granddaughter of George Culver Clements. I have a partial pedigree chart for the Clements family and was wondering if you could help fill some of it in. I am a Find-A-Grave member.
James M. Bockius Dear Prudence, Please consider posting the information I have sent you about James M. Bockius---it would make his memorial so much more interesting! As he is a distant family relative of mine, I would also appreciate your transferring his memorial to me, as I have much information on him and the Bockius family that I would like to share. Thank you. Linda Hauns ID# 47099229
