Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was very young I always wanted to know just "who I was" My parents divorced when I was under 4 years of age, so I had no knowledge of my father's side.

I started doing family research in the mid 1980's. So many family members had passed away so getting information has been a struggle.

Find A Grave has really aided in my research.

I post obituaries of my family and any connected to them, or some just to help others looking for their roots. I am always happy to help.

In 1989 I bought an old 1970's scrapbook at a flea market that contained many obituaries of San Saba County Texas. When the cemetery is named I am posting them to Find-A-Grave.

I started collecting obituaries of my school friends back in the 1950's and have been posting them also.

I was born and raised in Conroe, Texas, went to school there until 1952 when my family moved to Houston. I attended and graduated from S.F. Austin in 1954. I was a proud member of the Scottish Brigade Drill Team.

My first job was at the Crighton Theater in Conroe when I was only 15 years of age. I worked the door, concession and cashier. When we moved to Houston I worked at the Globe and Venus Theaters. In 1953 I worked for Spiegel's Department Store in downtown Houston in the children's department. I worked on Monday nights and Saturdays. After graduation I worked in the credit department. In December 1954 I accepted the job of traveling credit manager trainor to 5 states for Spiegel's. My territories were Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri. I met many interesting people and saw many wonderful places along the way and had the time of my life seeing so many places and taking photos.

Betty I noticed you also have a memorial on Pat. Pat sister is my best friend and if you don't mind I would love to leave my out there. I will delete it if you want to leave yours.
Thank you for all your work.

Hello Betty ~ THANKS so much for the links to the parents of Jim Ferguson Stowe ~ I have added them to the memorial for Jim Ferguson Stowe in Garden Park Cemetery, Conroe, Texas.

It appears you are related & if so, would you like me to transfer this memorial to you? I am always happy to transfer any memorial I have created, provided that I am not also related & in this case, I am not. I add memorials & obituaries to contribute to this wonderful site in hopes that it will help others find the resting place of their loved ones & in many cases addtional information to connect with other family members still living. If you would like a transfer, just send me a request via the edit/transfer button & I will do so.

Have a great week & again, THANKS!
