Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy research for well over 20 years. My roots are deep within Runnels County, Texas. I enjoy helping others in the hope that someday I can repay those who have helped me. I am no longer able to work outside my home due to health issues so I try to make the best of my time by quilting, gardening and genealogy. If you find a mistake I have made in the listings, please let me know by using the "EDIT" tab so I can correct them. Please remember, we are all human!! Mistakes can be made, even on death certificates. If there is a relative that you would like transfered to you, please let me know an I will be glad to do that. A special thanks to Ralph Terry and friends for all their hard work transcribing the Trickham Cemetery, Coleman, Tx. I have added to these records as not all were listed. Without this, it would have taken much longer to get the information out. Slowly but surely, I am photographing and listing the graves in Evergreen in Ballinger, Paint Rock, Lakeview, Fairview and North View in Winters.
Old Runnels,Brookshire (Mt Victory), Maverick and Garden of Memories, Norton, Rowena Protestant, Rowena Evergreen, Rowena St Joseph's, Wingate, Wilmeth (Runnels Co), Trickham,Rough Creek and Valera (Coleman County) are finished.

Please use the photos I take as you see fit. That is why I do this, so others can benefit from it.

Lawrence & Gifford Sims
I just transferred the memorials for Lawrence and Gifford Sims to you as I have previously transferred this family to you. I think they should be kept together.

Lawrence is buried at Roscoe (died in 2005) and did not have a memorial until today. A friend is helping photograph Roscoe Cemetery, so you should see a photo of his grave there shortly.

When posting his obituary, I found a brother, Gifford, who passed in 1966, and is buried at Sweetwater Cemetery. I transferred him to your keeping as well.

Blessings! Janie

Scott A. Fowler
Looking for more information about Andrew Jackson Fowler
My name is Scott A. Fowler, my father's name is Allen Ray Fowler. His Father's name is Raymond Elgene Fowler. The information I need is the actual last name of my grandfather. The story was if I remember correctly is that his father died at a train station in Texas I believe and then was Adopted by Andrew Jackson Fowler. My grandfather's mother Ivy Lee Guice Fowler-Huggins (1892 - 1957)
She supposible had an affair with a Business man that owned a Furniture store in Abilene, Texas area. Please email me back if you know anything about this so I can't better understand my Family Tree.

Ella Jackson
I just made a connection for Ella Jackson to my great-great grandfather. Ella is the daughter of George Louis Siebrecht first marriage to Anna Hillebrand (or Hildebrandt). My family line is through his second marriage to Clara Merrem.

I looked at Anna's death certificate to confirm. I have not found Anna yet. I know she died around 1876. She lived in La Grange, Texas.

I also found some interesting information about Ella's brother (also from George and Anna)named George Louis Jr. He was killed in Yuma Arizona. I only discovered this through news articles. Ella's uncle H.R. Hillebrand and father went to Arizona to investigate the death. George Siebrecht Sr. and H.R. Hillebrand were both U.S. Marshall's.

So very interesting stuff. :)

Thanks, Rhonda

Sorry, I don't think I replied, as I didn't know where to look for messages. Not very computer literate, I am afraid.

Thank you

James markers
Sandra, I talked with a person who is a member of this family some while back. She had information as to where these persons are buried, but I cannot remember her name.
When I first inquired, I was given a name from the county, and then that person directed me to the James family member.
Thank you for your help, I will try a different avenue.
