Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family has been in the central Texas area since the 1840s, so my efforts have been concentrated in that area, mainly in Bandera, Medina and Kendall counties. I am the county coordinator for the Atascosa County, Bandera County, Comal County, Gillespie County, Guadalupe County and Medina County TXGenWeb sites, which have (and still are) turning up a lot of interesting history. I have also been working on my husband's Gillespie County family tree (I swear he's related to nearly everyone in the county!), and on my son-in-law's family tree, which has me researching in Guadalupe and Comal counties. Between all these, the list of names I'm researching is substantial.

I strongly believe in free genealogical information. That's why I volunteer for as many local genealogy websites as I can find, and I post my results to free genealogy sites. I encourage everyone to add their burial records to this wonderful database, so that these memorials, some fast disappearing, will truly never be lost. If you find your family here, and would like me to transfer ownership of the page to you, please let me know! I'm not into racking up big number counts on my stats. I AM into having family members monitor their own kinfolk's memorial pages! Please request transfers through the memorial page itself. Due to the overwhelming number of correction/addition requests I have been receiving, I may occasionally transfer memorial pages automatically to the requester. PLEASE if you are requesting a transfer, make sure you are logged in to Find A Grave when you make the request so I will have your member number! Also, please be aware that a large number of the memorial pages I have created are my relations, so if you send a request for transfer and I don't immediately comply, it is probably because I am related to that person as well. Usually a flower on the page with the signature "Family Historian" is a tip-off that the person memorialized is a relative.

I happily give permission for my Find A Grave photos to be used by anyone for their family research.

I'd like to acknowledge the invaluable assistance of the intrepid Jane Jahns Rice (thanks, Jane!) for assisting me with photographing the large San Geronimo Cemetery in Seguin, Texas.

RE: Ney Family
Its' always a great day when you can link a memorial with a loved one!
I've transferred the Neys listed under 'Jean Marie's Family" to you. I also manage a small group of Neys buried at Holy Cross in D'Hanis. Please let me know if I should transfer those (or any others ).

Katherine Fries
Hi Donna

Roger was looking through some papers and found his mother's Certification of Birth, and Certificate that she was Baptized.

Thought you might be interested since she is part of your family too.

I need to try to get her birth certificate at a later date. The certification of birth does not show names of her parents.

Catherine Kobjeck
Born Feb 17, 1914 (She always told us Feb 1, 1914)
New York City, New York.
Baptized on Feb 3, 1915 at St. Vincent Ferrer's Catholic Church of New York, New York.

At that time her name was shown as Catherine Friess. Evidentally a typo since it should have been Fries. I don't have the date of the adoption. She also has always gone by Katherine instead of Catherine.

I have name and birthday listed under Alternative if you look at my Fries tree.

Take care. Awilda

We are Related?
Hello Donna,

I think we may be related. I was leaving some flowers on Riehs, Wittman, Balcar, grave pages and
I saw your flowers posted. Figured you may be related to do that. Then I read your page and am making contact in hopes it seems we both found another relative lol.
Hope to hear from you.

RE: Bertha Schladoer Brown
That happens a lot, my husband's surname has changed from DeGylet 11 generations ago in France to Gillette, with some seven different spellings.

William Farmer
Capt. Absolem Junious Farmer
Hello there,
I'm looking for info on my great great great grandfather Capt. Absolem Junious Farmer. I've been through just about every public record on the fellow and i am now tracking down extremely distant relatives. I am writing a chapter about his death at the Battle of Allatoona pass(it's historical fiction). I thought to ask the people who have left him virtual flowers because they might have info on him. I thought of this because i went and found his grave and it appears that his marker had been redone. So, someone else out there must be interested in his life.
Do you have any kind of info on him or his life that you could give me? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

William Farmer (I am related to him on my mother's side, my mother just happened to marry someone with last name Farmer.)
