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.

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.

Thank you ever so much for getting this photo. You said that there are other Monells nearby but the stones are well worn. Are there any that you can still make out.

Thank you for posting the picture of the tombstone of Revolutionary War soldier William Anderson. Some of his descendants are listed at the URL below. One of them was actor Leif Erickson, who was also born with the name of William Anderson.
