Bio and Links
Bio Photo My Grandfather Lewis was always very proud of his family history. His Tenney family came to America Dec. 1638 to Salem, Mass on the sailing ship-John, that also carried the first printing press. A different part of my Grandfather's family tree line came to Texas in late 1830s. I am a 5th generation Texan. Yep! I do have a great deal of Texas Pride!
Since the mid 1980s, I have been researching family lines for my family & my husband's family.
Some of these families are: Adams, Baker, Bland, Barker, Bartlett, Bishop, Brown, Brunson, Brown, Caufield, Cheives/Cheeves, Coker, Dollar, Draper, Feagin, Grounds, Harp, Iley/Ivey, King, Latham, Lewis, Martin, McCauley, Pearson, Pitts, Price, Tenney, Thacker, Windham, Yocham/Yocum, Young.

Just to let you know--I like to do this little project on findagrave. I call it my "After-Life" Family Reunion project. What I do is try to track down the information on all the children of one my or my husband's ancestors, then I see if that child has a memorial page on findagrave. Then I like to request a link between the child-that I found & their parents. So if I request an edit on your memorial page, that doesn't mean I would like it transfer to me, I am just trying to re-unite my or my husband's ancestor's families. If I really, really would like a transfer, then I will request, very politely, if a transfer would be possible.

I am about to submit an edit for her death date but wanted to let you know the source. I found her death certificate in Navarro County, which is dated 1932, not 1931. If she has a tombstone I guess you should leave it, but since there isn't a photo of it on the Memorial, I am going to assume there may not be one.
I am not related and don't wish a transfer.

RE: Mary Lillian Barker Kropp
I am so glad to hear all the good news! We will continue to pray for you both.

I have added Bessie, Josephine, Milburn (all were General Jackson's sisters), and Wilburn Kropp (the only brother I can find). There was also a still born daughter, Annie Kathryn in 1926.

Don't know if you needed all that info, but there is no charge for it.

I appreciate your efforts in helping me.

Mary Lillian Barker Kropp
Hi, again. I just needed to let you know, that Silas T's wife's name was Mary Francis Abney. I'm not sure where Mary Lillian came from, but I knew grandma Armstrong, (her last husband's name) very well.

Are you guys well? I hope so. Keep up the good work.

RE: Kropp
Hi, again. I just spoke with my sister about Bessie Lee Kropp. Bessie was one of General Jackson's sisters. Now I have to start digging up the rest of them.

The numbers you gave me with the Kropp names; is there some way I can use them on findagrave, or are they cemetery #s.

RE: Silas memorial
Thank you for allowing me to administer Silas' memorial, and for the info you have provided.

I know it is unimportant to you, but General Jackson Kropp only had two daughters. My mother Virginia, and her half-sister Jewel. As for Bessie Lee, I am checking to see where she might fit in.

I won't say that I am not related to the Barkers; after some of the things I have learned through this jaunt thru my heritage, I now know that anything is possible:).

Again, thank you, and if I can be of any help just let me know.

Silas T.Kropp
Hi, I want thank you for the Silas T Kropp memorial. He was my great grandfather, and though I was blind, and could not see him, "Little Grandpa T" always had the time to tell me stories. It was not until after he passed away that I became aware that he, too, was legally blind. If you would allow me, I will be more than happy to administer his memorial.

Also, I would truly appreciate any photos of him that you you might share. Thank you GRR

RE: Bessie Brown
