Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born Kathy Jean Kinder in Waco, Texas. My mother Bonnie Jean Jones was the daughter of Andrew Francis Jones and Annie Mae Smith. Andrew was the son of Horace Francis Jones and Mary Jane Marcum.
My father was Cecil Ed Kinder and his parents were Thomas Irvin Kinder and Laura Ella Diver.
I feel like I am a little late in doing this family research as so many of my relatives have passed away, but I am hopeful that I will find some living ones that can help me with so many of my unanswered questions.
As for a little about me, I am the mother of five wonderful children and have 13 wonderful grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. I love spending time with them and try to see them all every year. I also love to oil paint, take pictures, read, work jigsaw puzzles and watch movies when I am not on the computer trying to dig up more relatives.
I welcome anyone to contact me who has information on any of the relatives.

RE: Jane Watkins
Jane Watkins in a cemetery near Lott, Tx. I understand the cemetery is unkept and is private land. Very hard to find and is infested with snakes during the warmer months. The marker is so old it cannot be read very well. She was the mother of John Brown Watkins and Martin Reece Watkins. She was born in 1824 in Tennessee and died on 8-22-1897...Her parents were Martin Reece 1802-1860 and Elizabeth Buttery 1805-1860 . Hope this helps, let me know if we are related. My email is

Mary Ann Fuller Diver # 48568908
I hope I'm not being a pain but I keep coming up with questions. On Mary's memorial the article Mrs. JD Diver... at the bottom it says very lengthy article? Do you have this article and could I get a copy of it? I'd love to read the whole article. People have no idea how important newspaper clippings and obits and letters can be to research, isn't it wonderful!!!

Mary Ann Fuller Diver # 48568908
Me again. I just found the 1900 US Census for Robert & Mary Diver with my Agatha (their daughter) and I noticed below them and below James Diver family on this census page is a Lamkins family and there is a daughter named Mary in this family. Do you know if perhaps one of Agatha's siblings married this Mary Lamkins and maybe Agatha's son who was informant on her death cert. got that Mary's maiden name and Agatha's mothers maiden name mixed up? This seems like a possible explanation now that I have seen this Lamkins family right next door to them on this census. I see mistakes like this on death certs and other docs quite often. Let me know what you think, ok?

Kathy: Why does article/obit on Marys page say Mrs. JD Diver when her husband was Robert Charles? Somethings not fitting here? I just found your tree on ancestry, wow it's great. So many pictures. Thanks so much for sharing them.

Mary Ann Fuller Diver # 48568908
Hi Kathy:
I am distantly related to this lady. I see she was your 2nd great grandma. According to her daughter Agatha Bell Diver/Greenwood/Fulsom was the paternal grandmother of wife of 1st cousin 1x removed of wife of 1st cousin of husband of sister-in-law of my 2nd cousin. Wow, that's a mouthful. I have to look at ancestry to keep it straight. Any how I am researching this line and on Agatha's death cert. it says her mother's maiden name was Mary Lamkins but you have Mary Ann Fuller/Diver. I am confused? Agatha'son Wallace Edgar Greenwood was the informant on her death cert. Any idea where the Lamkins may come from or the Fuller? Was Mary married more than once? I haven't researched Mary hardly at all yet and who knows I may have already figured it out by the time I get an answer back from you. LOL. I love doing genealogy research. It brings me great joy. Your memorials are wonderful. And the pictures, of my goodness. One of my goals is to someday have a picture of everyone on my trees but of course I know that's impossible. I Thank you so much for the work you do for findagrave it is priceless to researchers like me. I just found the most amazing website with a bunch of pictures and stories about the Divers family and Sipe Springs, Texas. It is awesome. If you haven't seen it yet I'm sure you will love it. Here is the web address
I look forward to hearing back from.

Nancy Caroline Isbell Watkins
Do you know if her father William Isbell was a son of Zachariah Isbell and Martha Patsy Owens? I'm trying to find out if this William Isbell was the brother of Cassandra Isbell Bruce (#82405184). Any information would be very welcome! Thanks!

RE: Cannon photos
It was my pleasure! I was lucky to find the Nebraska photos while sitting in my chair over here in Michigan. There may be others you seek at this site...
I am working on posting as many as I can. I have several relatives there, and I recognize many of the family names via my mom and grandparents stories. I credit .....
