Bio and Links
Bio Photo In 2006 my daughter graduated from high school and moved off to college. To keep my mind occupied I took a box of antique photos off the top closet shelf that had been stored away since my grandparents passed away in 1990. Very few had names and so I began doing genealogical research to track down family members who also may have inherited matching photos. Many were from the late 1800s and very early 1900s. To my surprise I have identified about 3/4 of the unnamed photos. I am still working on my family tree trying to get the Jonas family posted but also work on my husband's lines as well. My family trees are posted on ancestry.com.

My family names are Jonas, Kruse, Weiss, Buske, Hagemann, Krueger, Jackson, Lowe, Wilson, & Gordon. I have a cousin Sharon Smith who has done extensive research on my mother's family and her web site is: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~circuitcourtrecords/gordon/gordonindex.html

My husbands family names are Mullen, Moore, Herran, Gardner, Burleson, Boyd, Day, Miles, Vann, Beaver, Wren & Tacker who are mostly early settlers in Freestone and Leon County, Texas.

When studying family history, the question often comes to mind "what is the purpose and meaning of life". The wisest man that ever lived, Solomon, had this to say: Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. (Ecc 12:13-14)

Do you want peace in your life? Jesus is the only way to find true peace and hope and courage to survive in this crazy world in which we live today. The most famous king of all times, King David, said, "Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in thy tabernacle forever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah." Ps. 61

One of my greatest family heirlooms is a letter dated June 3, 1908 from Sarah Greives Clark in Manchester, England, to her sister, Anne Greives Lowe (my great-great grandmother) in Crowley, Louisiana. Sarah describes how their brother, George, had found peace in Jesus and she hoped that her sister, Annie, had also been "washed in the blood of the Lamb" so that they might meet again in Heaven. Someday, I too, will meet my ancestors on the other side.

"IHS" on headstone
I found a link about what IHS means on headstones:

http://newtheologicalmovement.blogspot.com/2012/01/what-does-ihs-stand-for-meaning-of-holy.html

As for photographing and identifying who is buried next to Mathilda Andrus, I could, but I have not been to this cemetery for about 15 years. Maybe another F.A.G. member could photograph it, via photo request?

Thanks.

Can I change management of the Lowe's over to you? I am not related.

RE: Thanks!
Great! I am glad you found one more piece to the puzzle...though in this case, it may have added more questions! Now, someone needs to get my family photos in Pittsburgh for me!

Mabel Lowe
Hi Linda,
I went to Hope Mauseleum to find your Mable Lowe. She is in 268C-D, however, the marker was never engraved with her name. I verified that with the office to make sure they gave me the correct location.

Hi Linda!

I linked Wilmer Cecil Day to his parents. Thanks for sending me the suggestion. Hope this finds you well my ancestry friend. I'm heading down to Comal County and Guadalupe County on a week day to research, so let me know if you need any records from that part of the world.

Take Care!

RE: M. T. Walker
Hello Ms. Mullen, I just called my grandmother and asked her what did the M.T. stand for in my grandfather's name and she did not know. I have often wondered that myself. However, she did give me the names of his parents, who are, Anthony Govan and Laura Bell Walker, both of who were originally from Texas, and Freestone County natives. I am currently trying to trace our family lineage for the Walker's. Hopefully I can find what the M.T. Stands for in my grandfather's name, I will be more than happy to share that information with you. Thank you all for keeping up such a good updated file on my grandfather and my uncles. My ultimate goal is to get them headstones for their graves.

Linda, you are absolutely correct about Don Mullen's father. Not sure how I came up with the wrong name, but deleting it now. Thank you for your gently-delivered correction!

Thanks for posting this picture of her. I loved seeing it and it is the first time any of my kids have seen her and the first time I have ever seen her. My husband knew her but I am glad to have all this for my kids.
