Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am originally from the Vicksburg, Mississippi area. I also lived in Utica, Mississippi for quite a few years. I have lived in Grand Junction, Colorado since 1987. My husband and I were married in 1969 and moved out west in 1987. We have three children and two fantastic grandchildren and three wonderful step-grandchildren. I am very interested in genealogy. As a matter of fact, I am addicted to genealogy. My family research includes the sir names Heggins or Higgins from Mississippi and Texas areas, Jones from Mississippi, Adisano of New York and Cagle from the Mississippi area. Anyone having information, please don't hesitate to email me.
If anyone sees any mistakes in my work, please don't hesitate to let me know so that I can correct it. Also, anyone having pictures, obituaries or any information they want added to a memorial, please send them to me and I'll be glad to add them. Thanks

Hi. My grandmother's mother was a Cagle. She is descended from the the Julia Hood and Greenberry Cagle line. Julia Hood was the 7th child of James Hood, and she married Greenberry Cagle. Their children were John, Jesse, James L., Wade, Jasper, Mary, Cleopatra, Theodore. Do any of these sound familiar? BENJAMIN Cagle was my grandmother's uncle, called Uncle Ben. He had no children. As for the Albert Cagle or Edom Cagle, she has no recollection. She is 87 and in poor health. She remembers an Uncle "Alb" but she thought his last name was Morris.

Hi Liz,

Have added two pics for Ben Cagle that you requested. I was unable to find tombstones for Elom and Albert Cagle and had no luck even after speaking with one of the folks on the cemetery committee. Gloria Jackson has left you a couple of public messages. She was very instrumental in helping me find two other tombstones I was looking for today and giving me the name of the committee member. Maybe you two are kin! Anyway, hope what I could find was a help to you. Let me know if there is anything else I can do.

Curious: I JUST joined today. I was looking at Pine Bluff Cemetery and looked to see if my grandfather (died in Oct.) was listed, and he is and his whole obit was too. Are you family? Papaw has soooo many relatives! I'm his granddaughter. Gloria

How are you related to the Cagles? These are my grandmother's relatives. Ben Cagle was her uncle. We live in Dentville.

Heggins family
Dear Ms. Liz:

Here is what I know about the Heggins family ... not much .... my father was a produce broker and we lived in California and Arizona until I went into the Army. I have 4 sisters as were listed in the obits: Belinda Hazel, 1956, Brenda Kay (1957, me), Deanna Louise (1958), Theresa Lhea, (1960) and Kelly Denise (1962). All of us are alive and well.

I know my father had many brothers, I didn't know Uncle Bilbo, but I remember he died when I was really young, I was living in Salinas, CA at the time. Uncle Johnnie Cecil, he was a younger brother to my father. I met Uncle Roosevelt, he was in the Army when I was a private in the Army, and I never met Uncle Hiawatha, although he lives in France and he visited my father at the ranch in Texas while my parents were alive. He was in some kind of special forces or something. His son is an artist and sculpture (Frank?), I think he teaches this in France, they sent me an article a few years ago, but it was on a computer that crashed and burned during my move from North Carolina to Texas. So let me fill in the gaps .... My father got very sick with his heart and sold the ranch he and my mother had in Arizona ...Sonoita Oaks Ranch, they moved to Texas because my mother had ranch land that had been inherited through family from the 1800s, my mother, her sister and her brother each inherited some of this land. This is Rancho LaLeona East, my mother's older sister Caroyln Jauer Rogers had Rancho Le Leona West ... that is where the masoleum is for my grandparents. Uncle Marion (Jim) is still alive and well, he was married to Aunt Joanne, they had Denise, Dwyane and Buddy ... Dwyane died, he is on the internet too (he died in the hospital I currently work in ... that is pretty weird to me, but I have lots of ancestors who died in this hospital), Uncle Jim is now married to Shirely (I believe that is her name), they live in Houston, TX or one of the suburbs of Houston.

I was told that Grandpa Heggins was a "ladies man." He liked the ladies and married a number of them ..... he was some kind of chicken farmer, I do remember him. I also remember Aunt Virgie, Uncle Junior Clonis, Great Aunt Belua (sp?) I have no idea how to spell her name ....and I remember Aunt Willie Margie, for whom I was teased endlessly because she was "robust and heavy set" ... and so am I, lastly, Great Aunt Cora ..... Aunt Virgie had a son and husband for the life of me I cannot remember their names .... that is about it .... in a nutshell, so much for my family history. I only saw these people a few times when I was very small, except for Uncle Jim, the last time I saw him with his children was in the early 1970s, I think I was about 12 or 13 .... the next time I saw him was at the ranch about 2005.

So you know what I know, not much, but my family lived so far away from all of their family, that this geneaology is the only way I have found out anything .....

Maybe all of these names mean a family string ... I know that the Heggins clan has some kind of a shin dig in Mississippi at a resturant, my sister Terri went once while my parents were still alive.

I hope I haven't made you laugh too much ... but honestly, this is about my knowledge of the family, as I only met them maybe 3 times in my life that I can really remember.

Kindest Regards from Portland, TX

jauer family photos
Dear Ms. Liz:

I would love to see what you have found! :-) I have been studying my family (mother's side) and that of my husband's. A 4th cousin in Austin published a book on the Jauer's and I have some of the history, but there is always something to find out. I know that Carl Ludwig Jauer came to TX in 1845 before Texas was a state, he was not one of the "original 300" but received the Star of Texas and it adornes his grave maker which is done in German. He was considered a colunist in TX ....

I remember Mississippi from when I visited when I was very little, my father was born around Mt. Olive, Mississippi, but that is just what I have been told. Both he and my mother thought they were born in 1934, sometime before they died, they both told me they were both actually born in 1933, I guess that is up for debate .... everything else that is legal says 1934, but I have never seen either of their birth certificates.

How would you be related to Heggins? I know that Monroe was married about 3 or 4 times, I think Minnie might have been wife #2 or so ....

By the way, my mother had Alzheimer's, that is why she wandered off ..... it is, what it is, couldn't get her to leave the ranch.

Ben and BeBe Heggins
Ms. Liz, I was surprised that someone had added my parents to the Find A Grave list! I have placed them in Find A Grave and then came across your entries. Please visit, I have linked your entires for Monroe, Minnie to my father, as they were his parents. His brothers were Cecil and Bilbo, which I see you have also added, I will visit and leave cards.

Both of my parents chose to die in a remote part of Texas and did not want anythiing, not even headstones. The land my cousins have next to this ranch LaLeona West has a private masoleum for Jauer's, my mothers side of the family.

Brenda Kay (Heggins) Bryant,

If you have any obits on either of my parents I would love to know about them as I do not believe the Herronville papers, or my family or the funeral home posted one. Thanks.

Genealogist's Christmas Eve
'Twas the night before Christmas
When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even my spouse.

The dining room table with clutter was spread
With pedigree charts and with letters which said...
"Too bad about the data for which you wrote;
Sank in a storm on an ill-fated boat."

Stacks of old copies of wills and such
Were proof that my work had become too much.
Our children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugarplums danced in their heads.

And I at my table was ready to drop
From work on my album with photos to crop.
Christmas was here, and such was my lot
That presents and goodies and toys I'd forgot.

Had I not been busy with grandparents' wills,
I'd not have forgotten to shop for such thrills,
While others bought gifts to bring Christmas cheers,
I'd spent time researching those birth dates and years.

While I was thus musing about my sad plight,
A strange noise on the lawn gave me such a great fright.
Away to the window I flew in a flash,
Tore open the drapes and yanked up the sash.

When what with my wondering eyes should appear,
But an overstuffed sleigh and eight small reindeer.
Up to the house top the reindeer they flew,
With a sleigh full of toys and 'ole Santa Claus, too.

And then in a twinkle, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of thirty-two hoofs.
As I drew in my head, and bumped it on the sash,
Down the cold chimney fell Santa--KER-RASH!

"Dear" Santa had come from the roof in a wreck,
And tracked soot on the carpet, (I could wring his short neck!)
Spotting my face, good 'ole Santa could see
I had no Christmas spirit you'd have to agree.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work
And filled all the stockings, (I felt like a jerk).
Here was Santa, who'd brought us such gladness and joy:
When I'd been too busy for even one toy.

He spied my research on the table all spread
"A genealogist!" He cried! (My face was all red!)
"Tonight I've met many like you," Santa grinned,
As he pulled from his sack a large book he had penned.

I gazed with amusement--the cover it read
Genealogy Lines for Which You Have Plead.
"I know what it's like as a genealogy bug."
He said as he gave me a great Santa hug.

"While the elves make the sleighful of toys I now carry,
I do some research in the North Pole Library!
A special treat I am thus able to bring,
To genealogy folk who can't find a thing."

"Now off you go to your bed for a rest,
I'll clean up the house from this genealogy mess."
As I climbed up the stairs full of gladness and glee,
I looked back at Santa who'd brought much to me.

While settling in bed, I heard Santa's clear whistle,
To his team, which then rose like the down of a thistle.
And I heard him exclaim as he flew out of sight,
"Family history is Fun! Merry Christmas! Goodnight!"
