Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired and living with my wife of almost 60 years on the western shores of Lake Whitney in Texas. I have been interested in genealogy for many years but am not a professional. :-) It is a hobby in my old age.

My paternal lines include: SVACH, HAJEK, DRDLA, RICHTEROVA, and MATEJKOVA among others.

My maternal lines include: LESOVSKY, SHIPEK, SIPEK, KALIVODA, KOCIANOVA, and HREJSOVA among others.

I served in the US Navy from 1950-1954 as an Electronics Technician. I have a BS Degree from University of Illinois in Engineering Physics and a MS Degree from University of Texas at Dallas in Management Information Systems (computers). I also am a radio amateur operator with call sign N5VFO. In addition to computers, researching and surveying cemeteries has become my #1 hobby.

My current title with the Bosque County Historical Commission is Chairman of the Cemetery Committee. I also serve as the Treasurer of the Bosque County Genealogical Society.

If I can be of service to anyone who finds an error in my memorials or would like to have more details added for your loved ones or a transfer to your control, please do not hesitate to contact me. Please send an SAC from the Edit tab of the memorial page with the details and I will respect your wishes, additions, and corrections.

A. J. Ferriss
A. J. Ferriss is my G. Great Grandfather. I noticed that I had a potential problem with his deathdate due to Ida Ferriss being born in 1873 after his death. When I looked at the picture of the tombstone, I realized that the death date could be 1874 with the spacing. I don't know if you are anywhere near the cemetery but I was hoping to get your opinion to see if the death date could be wrong on the memorial.

Yes, she did but I'm getting sloppy in my old age. Hope you have better communication with the rest of your requests.

Have a great day

RE: Blanche Barton Leshovsky


Truly, I think you've done such a wonderful, elegant,
and beautiful job. I admire the findAgrave memorials
you've made for your family.

I've been blessed to find and link a lot of my line,
but I don't, sadly, have the photographs to add to
them. So, your memorials made me smile.

May the Lord bless you.
