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.

Phebe Parker Wells
Hi Linda....I don't know if you're related to Phebe or not, she's my 4x's great grandmother. And I was wondering, if you're not, then maybe at some time you would let me handle her memorial?

You are welcome to use any photos I post for your research. If you think of it, you can add a "by line" but I'm not concerned with that. Just don't sell any without a by line. Lol! (As if they are good enough. Lol!)

RE: Mabel Zula Andrus Lowe
The office knew I was there as well but that was a few years ago. Maybe they just put this into action or the person working the office at the time did not know to tell me and others. Someone told me that they recently (within the year) went over there and we're basically chased off for looking around. My grandparents and aunts are there. I don't plan to remove their stone photos.

Hi Linda,
I fulfilled your photo request at Hope a while back. The cemetery is demanding the removal of all photos. Hopefully you get this msg in time to download the pic before I delete it.

RE: Henry Dilbeck
I've been taking pictures at the El Reno Cemetery in El Reno, Oklahoma.

If I see that a permanent marker is there with a temp marker, I just pull up the temp marker.

It's really no longer needed when the permanent is placed.

Thank you for removing the temp marker for Henry Dilbeck. He is a very distant cousin.

J.P. Ivy
Hi,
Would you have any idea how I might obtain a photo of J.P.? He was an old friend from way back when he lived in Brownwood and I lost track of him when he and I both moved to different places. I belatedly found out about his passing.
