Bio and Links
One day when I had young children still at home and I was visiting with my mother, I got out a piece of paper and began asking her who her family was. I got her mother's maiden name and her grandmother's maiden name. About the time my daughter got married and I got a computer I started my search for my roots. I had very little to go on but after 12 years of research I now have info. that goes back about 20 generations on her side. The family I knew the least about, I now know the most about.
I'm so glad I sat down with her and a piece of paper.

San Jacinto Cemetary Prairie Lea
I would like to get in touch with someone who is familiar with the San Jacinto Cemetary in
Prairie Lea. We are working on family genealogy and would like to confirm that a relative is buried there. We live in the Ft Worth area and are planning a trip to the San Marcos area in the next few months. Any help would be appreciated!

Thank YOU!
Thank you for posting the Wade Cemetery photos in Guadalupe County! Bernhard Hagemann was my ggg-grandfather. I was so happy to see that he had such a nice headstone.

RE: Herrmann family in Seguin
I guess I would have to get a little more information on this matter. Could I go to the store and check?
There are lots of branches of the family.
P. S. Yes, I'm doing well, and miss seeing you.

Yes, Donna, I do know them. I just returned from being out of town. Will contact you later.

RE: Hello!
For some reason when I originally found the cemetery on the site, it only showed the two requests that I claimed. I think there are multiple listings for the same cemetery. I claimed and completed all of the requests this morning. Thank you for pointing it out.

RE: Letter!
Hi Donna,

That is the last address that I have. My aunt and I were not close and only exchanged Christmas cards. It is possible she moved. I do not have a phone number, but you may want to try telephone information.

I wish I could be more helpful.

Thanks for your information.

Charles worked for Eastern airlines. Perhaps that was the connection.
