Bio and Links
I have been doing ancestral research for about 30 years. By being involved in searching records and information, I have made many new friends (fellow researchers) and met family members who have become personal friends. This is a great (and addictive) hobby that had opened the lives of my antecedents and their migration across North America from the European Continent for me. Just finding names is not the goal for me. I want to know how they made their living, what the times were like, and just get to know the individuals as personally as I can. By combining history, country, and economics, it is easier to create an interesting even though incomplete canvas of the journey of one's life. Sometimes I only have a name, but I never stop seeking a clue here and there. Sometimes my efforts are rewarded but more often, the secrets are still floating in the hazy gauze of time.

I am a retired executive and newspaper correspondent retiring from director of a senior citizens center. I retired from the American Red Cross working in health, safety, service to military families, and disaster as volunteer, paid staff, instructor and instructor trainer.

The pictures that I take for Find A Grave may be used in your research and transfered at will. I hope that they help you in your endeavors.

Most all photos I take in Englewood Cemetery in Slaton, Texas will have life dates, burial date, and location of grave if you click on the pictures.

This looks like a very good example of me not being able to read my own handwriting. I checked my records and it looks like the name should be Hock. I went ahead and changed the name on the memorial. If this is still wrong, let me know and we'll figure something out.

RE: Brown Cousins (cont'd)
Hi Cuz,
I am always happy to find a cousin from whatever line. Hillard Hawkins was married to Margaret E. Brown, his son Loomis D. Hawkins was my Great grandfather on my dad's side, my Grandmother was Ethel Idella Hawkins She married John H.Franklin, So my maiden name is Franklin. I have not researched the Brown line much I have precious little on then actually, I have a lot on the Hawkins/Mize/Franklin lines (Loomis first married Rebecca B. Mize who was my Great Grandmother) I would be happy to share any information I have on the Hawkins/Mize/Franklin lines, as I said I don't have enough on the Browns to share, I may have to start looking now that I have a new cousin.
If you would like to add me to facebook I am listed as Sheila Franklin Henry and my e mails are and I check these most everyday.
Talk to you soon
