Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Pharmacist; I have been married 43 years and have 4 beautiful children. My wife and I look forward to traveling, antiquing and spending time with our families. I have lived in Tyler, Tx since 1952; originally from Hugo, Ok. Searching family history and going to cemeteries is a hobby my wife and I enjoy together.
Linking familes together from generation to generation is fascinating and challenging.
Remembering past generations seems to have become a lost art and helping others connect with their families is indeed a pleasure.
In addition to photo requests, I always try to take other pictures, especially those with same surnames as the requests. If these are not on FAG
I make a memorial for them.If any are your relatives I will gladly transfer them to you.

Marriage Date for Daniel D.Currie
Hello Jim,

As a descendant of Daniel D. Currie, I would like to inform you that the date of marriage to Mary Ann Goodwin is incorrect. Somewhere along the way the date has been recorded incorrectly. Daniel D. Currie took a out a Lien Bond for Marriage to Mary Ann Goodwinin bibb County, Alabama. He applied for a license on Feb. 2, 1829.
On April 2, 1829 he took out a lien for $200.00. The marriage took place on April 5, 1829 and was recorded on April 28, 1829. I found this document through Family ,Alabama County Marriages 1809-1850 pgs. 38 and 39.

Could you please make the correction for all. I have other documented data about the descendants if needed.
Many Thanks.

Hello. I saw your wife's Grandma last night. My neighbor and I were going to a church meeting in Independence.

Grandma gave us some coat hangers she made. Happy Sunday

RE: Hickman family in Baxter county
Hi, Ira Thomas is my great great grandfather. He married Lizzie Fouts (Elizabeth) and Sarah is one of his sisters. I have been researching this part of my family and have found photos of them. Is your wife on ancestry,com ? If you give me your email, I can invite you to view my family tree. Amazing to think your wife is a distant relative of mine. They did indeed ice fri. Missouri and Baxter county.

Thank you for contacting me.

Hickman family in Baxter county
Thank you so much for the photos posted of some of my Hickman family in Baxter county, Arkansas. I live in England now and have started researching my family tree just today. I'm amazed to have found photos of tombs where my great grandparents and their parents lay to rest. Thank you!
