I have been in the military for 18 years.

RE: Domers/Myers
Thank you so very much! I truly appreciate it.
I do have a site on MyHeritage as well. Its called
Cobb-Weaver web site (Rootstech).

It's not as complete as my Ancestry tree by any means though. I just prefer Ancestry and it's hard to keep trees on multiple sites all in sync.

I'd love to visit Domer Chapel someday too! My folks visited a couple years ago and took a few pics for me.

Thanks again, and if I can be of help to you in anyway, please feel free to get in touch!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you so much for posting such great photos to F.A.G., I'm so grateful for the work you are doing.

I appreciate the bio you posted as it gave me some helpful family tree clues to work on. I did some work tonight to fill in your branch that connects with mine and discovered we are 5th cousins! Mathias Martin Domer & Martha Lusher are my 4th great-grand parents.

If you are on, please look up my tree. My user name is Genbuff_76 and my tree is called Cobb-Weaver Family Tree.

Also, I was wondering if you might allow me to post some of your pics to my online tree, with credit to you, of course. Thanks for considering it!

Thank you very much for the biographical info you submitted last year as a correction for Gen. Robert Howe. I have added it at last to Gen. Howe's memorial page.

I think you may have posted the wrong photo for William Phelps Find A Grave Memorial# 51141954. The headstone has John Stevenson on it. Do you have a photo for William Phelps?

He is my wife's father. I submitted an edit to change middle initial from W to E (Edward), which is what shows on the tombstone and is correct.

I am sorry that I have gotten you upset. It was not my intention to do that. Your site just showed up a few days ago and I was only interested in it. I had thought that you might be military and stationed in Hawaii and that is how you saw and did the site. It does not matter to me that you have a site for my son and if you had wanted to keep it, I would have given you more information to add to it. as for the other site, it is my site. Maybe not started by me, but was started by a wonderful man who lives in this area and puts up sites from the information that comes out in the newspapers. It also surprised me when I went to make one myself, and he just turned over his site to me.
My only question was if you were in the area and maybe read it in the paper at the time. As it was a traffic accident that happen in Hawaii, where a man fell asleep land ran into my son, killing him. Thank, God, he was the only one who died in that car, that day.
I am sorry if I upset you, it was not my intention to do so.

I was working on my ancestry program this morning and was looking at my sons green leaves when I found that you had a site on Find a Grave for him. Seeing you made this just a few days after Aaron had died, I am assuming you were living in Hawaii at the time. I am interested in the fact that you did make a site and was wondering why you did. If you are interested, Aaron does have another site on find-a-grave. His number is 126966410. He is buried in Belle Plains Cemetery, in Callahan county, Texas. Close by his home town.
I would be interested in hearing from you. My name is Patricia Collins. Aaron was my third son.
