|Bio and Links|
I have to credit my father with giving me my love of history. When I was a little girl, I remember going to the cemetery with him. He would point out headstones here and there. Sometimes it was a Civil War veteran's headstone that would catch his interest, or he would show me a Mason's mark. |
To my mother I would credit my love of books and knowledge. She always said that anything I wanted to know, I could find in a book. To this very day, I am an avid reader.
I suppose my love of genealogy was just a natural byproduct of this upbringing. I've always enjoyed listening to family stories. I look back now, wishing I had known to write them down. And so, here I am, so many years later, researching and capturing on paper, the little gems that make up our family's history.
What a blessing it is to have this website, not only to share the fruits of my own labors, but also to aid others in their search. Whether for genealogical purposes or for some other reason, I'm always glad to help where I can.

Hello Shannan: May I used your photo of Estelle for my Ancestry tree? She was a 1st cousin three times removed. Thank you.

I love the photo you posted of him! Do you have any info on the photographer? In 1953, "Peirce and Brother" (Robert William Peirce and John King Peirce, Jr.) brought daguerreotyping to Texas. Frances Ann Ussery first married Francis Marion Appling, and then married Robt Wm Peirce after Appling died.

Do you know if the middle name for R.J. Bridges was "James"? "James Bridges" (born about 1857) married Mary Etta Appling (1865-1955). Mary lived in Sullivan in 1925 (in her mother's obituary).

I am so sorry it's been so long on this. I'm just getting up and around after open heart surgery.
Robert E is my cousin, He was a purple heart veteran of WWII. He was preceded in death by his wife of 56 years, Rachel Atkinson McBroom whom he is buried by.
Thank You for helping me.
