Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have a greas love for genealogy and have been researching since I was in seventh grade. My dad and grandparents were great story tellers and left me with a rich history of our family. My grandparents were of Germam, English, Swedish, Danish and French Canadian orgin. The German ancestoirs arrived in this country in 1844. The English line can be traced to William White of the Mayflower crossing and to Kent, England. I married a full-blooded Irishman with a Polish name as he was adopted. I guess that makes my children, grandchildren and great-grandchild of "Heinz 57" orgin or "Dukes mixture", as my parents would say.

I am now a widow (2002), at a much younger age than I would have liked, but life goes on. My Husband and I were married 39 1/2 years and we had a son and a daughter and four grandaughters. He never had a chance to meet our two grandsons, the youngest granddaughter, or his two great-grand daughters.

We are a Navy family. My husband served five years, I served 22y 4m and my son 10yrs. We are all proud of our service to this great country.

I graduated from Henderson County Jr. College, attended Tyler Jr. College and graduated with a Degree in Nursing and in Science from the Univeristy of Texas.

I love genealogy, photography and traveling. I belong to a single group; LoW's, Loaners on Wheels, which affords me a chance to do all my hobbies and the companinship of other singles.

The photgraphs on the Chandler Memorial Cemetery we taken by myself and Doug Crabtree. This project was one of love for the families buried there and a passion to preserve the past. Doug and I both in live Chandler and are members of the East Texas Genealogical Society.

I am researching the following families.
Bischoff/Bishop -m- Wessling; Brooks -m- Sturtevant; Nelson -m- Jasperson; Cronk -m- Persian; Grochowski -m- Jaroszewska; Bolik/Ball -m- Wisniewska; Pope -m- Kyser; Wright -m- Scarbrough; Mitchell -m- Riner; Smith -m- Spivey; Farrier -m- Gowell.

RE: Mardell Parker.
In the biography, you would need to type exactly as you see the following code (no spaces). The XXXXXXX needs to be Elizabeth's memorial number:
granddaughter Name

When you get that typed in and save, her name should show up on Mrs. Parker's memorial site.

Elizabeth was very special to me. Her parents and my husband and I have been best friends for many years. Elizabeth was born with spina bifida. My husband and I lived with her parents when she was just a few months old. I taught her to sit and taught her to pull up a few months before she passed. She had several surgeries in her short life, but was always so happy. I loved every minute I spent with that special angel!!! Thanks for doing this for me.

Yep! I turned everything over but nothing happened.
Last I heard ,the Texas net we were posting on did not like our format and was not going to allow further entries.

you are on Find A Grave
Dear Frankie,
I had no idea you were on Find A Grave. I started about a year ago, It is pretty neat. It does all of the things I wanted to do with SCGS plus much more.
Except the fellowship. Glad to know your out there.

RE: John Hooker
Thank you for your attention to detail! The correct number should be 39948137. I'm not so good on my phone!

(This is a co-worker's family.)
