Bio and Links
Bio Photo 2013
I was born and raised in the oil fields of the Texas Panhandle, and since we did not live near either my father's or mother's family, I grew up thinking we had a very small family. After I retired, I started tracing my father's family, which, except for his immediate family, I knew very little about. I thought this would be a simple project, however, it turned into a huge project that both my husband and I love pursuing, and it keeps growing.

As we travel, we stop at any cemetery we are near (and sometimes not so near) where we know there are family members and photograph their graves and those of others who might be related (or not). All of these are added to Find A Grave to share with others.

Please feel free to use the photos I have posted on any Find A Grave memorial, BUT please give credit to my husband by showing "photo by Bill Lewis". We take them to share with others but ask that you be courteous about their use.

If you would like a memorial transferred, please ask, and if you are more closely related or it is someone that is not our family, I will be happy to transfer it.

Please DO NOT add death certificates to the memorials I have created. This is not the place for death certificates - it is a place to honor the lives of those who have gone before us.

Also, please DO NOT add obituaries, family history, or documents in the photo section. E-mail them to me and I will add them to the bio section.

Thank you for the suggested edit to Warren. I accepted it, but could you tell me your source? Are you a relative? Regards, Charlie

RE: Troutt
My pleasure! I just love the search. If I can snap anybody else for you, I'm just a few miles away.

Am a relative
Hi Carolyn,
I am a great granddaughter of Francis Hodges. My father was Albert Hodges, son of James Hodges. Just discovered and joined the Findagrave website when researching John Hodges after visiting Bandera, Texas today. So excited to see all the genealogy research already done.

Re: Corbin Lane
I see that your last name lists "Lane" Are you a ancestor of Corbin Lane??

I have copies of Daniel Beach's Company Muster Roll when he served in the Confederate Army 1861-1864 if you are interested in them. He was my great-great grandfather.
