Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a dedicated genealogist. I spend much of my free time working in the community as a Volunteer; the Victoria District Community Outreach Director for the United Methodist Church; a Board Member, a Lay Minister and a Ladies Ministry Leader for the United Methodist Church; a volunteer for TXGen Web Project for Goliad, Victoria, Uvalde, Medina, and Nueces counties; a volunteer for Find A Grave for Victoria, Goliad, Jackson, Calhoun, Uvalde, and Medina counties; as well as working full time as a crop insurance agent, a mother to five furry minischnauzers.

I host/assit with several family reunions a year for the Johnson, Ponton, Rudinger, and Turner families. I have finished one line of family history pertaining to the Loftin family that I have published and hope to finish a book on the Johnson Family Line, followed by one on the Tillotson Family Line.

I have several Facebook Heritage Lines:

Twisted Branches & Tangled Roots Family Research Services; Capt. "Black" Adam Zumwalt Family Line;
William and Isabella Moreland Ponton Family;
Henry William and Polly Johnson Pullin Family Hertiage; James Thomas & Martha Ann Thomas Burrall Johnson Family Heritage; Ed and Lillie Mae Tillotson Turner Family Heritage.

Please feel free to copy any photographs I have taken or put up...they are there for us as family historians to share--not hoard.

Today, I continue to research all the branches of my family tree. I have spent many hours talking on the phone, sitting behind a computer, and figuring out just how somebody's special someone fits into the family.

I love taking photos for others as well as my family as much as I love putting on my most comfortable pair of tennis shoes for a walk in the cemetery that is neatly manicured or is as overgrown as the dense jungles of exotic lands.

I hope to hear from any of my family members no matter how distant or close. And always remember: The mighty oak began as a single acorn. Albeit grew slow, it grew mighty sure.

I saw where you posted a photo of Thomas Jefferson Ponton and your bio states you are working on that line. I had these and am not related so I sent them to you. If you don't want them, send them back. Hopefully, you can add more information to them. Thanks! Kerry

RE: 107756837

I will go through my information to see if I have anything that will help you. Not sure at this moment. I will get back to you ASAP. Hopefully, I can find something. I know all too well how frustrating it can be not to be able to find what you need.

HUNT family history
Thank you for your dedication to research and preservation of genealogy. I especially appreciate your information on the early HUNT family from Heckfield, Hampshire, England.

I, too, am a dedicated researcher. The tree I'm presently working on is for a friend of mine and includes the Hunt family.
