Bio and Links
Bio Photo My Holbert line runs as far back as I can trace so far to my Great,great,great,great grandfather William Holbert born in 1751. From there his son Benjamin to his son Frederick his son Lewis to his son Rennie who is my mom's father (Lillian June (Holbert)Wixon) my grandfather.
I started my genealogy work last summer when I volunteered to update my family history book. Unfortunately my Mom died this past September and I lost alot of personal stories from her.
I continue to work everyday on my family history when I get a chance hoping to have new info for our upcoming family reunion this year. If anyone would have any info to share please do.
I also have an account at with my family tree. It is the Holbert_Eldred Family Tree if anyone is interested. I also have a Facebook account for any friends.
My father's side of the family (Wixon)runs many years back in the states. I have also been looking for info on them as well. They were heavy in to farming as well as the railroad. My Dad worked at the Maybrook yard and Selkirk yard for over 40 years.
My passion has always been the Thoroughbred Racehorses. I managed one of the largest breeding farms in New York for over 15 years but had to leave that line of work to take care of my Mom when my Dad passed away so I still live in Middletown, NY with my wonderful husband Ron and daughter Meagan.
I truly enjoy helping others connect to their families.

Hi Janet,

Thanks for the explanation!

Hi Janet,

You asked me to to delete this memorial (Milltown Cemetery) as I had already created a previous one WITH a picture. But, I don't see where that memorial is! Is it in another cemetery? I hate to delete this one if there isn't another one for her. Am I confused? Please get back to me to clear this up before I change anything. Thank you for your help.

Added Clarissa Barnes link to the memorial, thanks for noticing.
Snow is good for something! Had sleet and ice here on the beach, in for several days, too dangerous to go out. Luckily only lost power for 1 hour. Wilmington and south still have many out of power because of all the downed tree limbs.
