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 and Guadalupe 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.

Hi Donna,
I'm glad you were pleased to have his obituary. I also like to send details about a person when I find them. I think it really adds so much to have details of their lives on their memorials.
By the way, thank you for all that you have done on Findagrave. Your work is very helpful to others.

What a mess! I wouldn't go in there in the summer for anything. I'm working on the Hillside cemetery in Cuero what an amazing cemetery!

RE: Troy Carrigan
you are certainly welcome! I look for many more on the list but there are 44,000 graves so I will tell people if they call ahead and ok a particular grave theyll find it on the map for me but they wouldn't look for more than three at a time!

RE: Elizabeth Campbell
My pleasure. Elizabeth's headstone was almost completely covered with soil and grass, and her husband's was completely covered. The cemetery had apparently performed some ground's maintenance in that area in the past.
Sincerely, George Robbins.
