Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native of Austin Texas. Have lived elsewhere during my life, but resided in Austin the majority of my life. My husband and I had been been raising our 2nd family since 1995 (raising 3 grandchildren since 1995 when they were 1, 3, and 5). We both retired from IBM Austin and only have one of our grandchildren still at home with us and we just moved to Oklahoma on December 19, 2009.

I am a member of the DAR under patriot Moses Cherry and am a member of the DRT under patriot Andrew Miller. I also have a number of other patriot direct line qualifying for above and other wars, but have only submitted/approved on the above (as of August 22, 2015) but plan when I get the time to submit additional membership applications under other qualifying patriot surnames.

I've been doing genealogy research on my family since late 70's/early 80's when it required spending much time in the libraries and ordering mircrofilm to be borrowed from Salt Lake City and sent to my local LDS library. We've certainly come a long way since the 80's haven't we? We have so many online resources today and the databases get larger by the day.

I am a member of the Stephen F Austin (DRT) Daughters of the Republic of Texas (descendent of ANDREW MILLER line) and a member of the DAR in Ardmore, OK under MOSES DAWSON CHERRY partriot who is my 5th great grandfather (via their son: Samuel Torbert CHERRY & wife Sarah R Bell-Cherry's daughter: ELIZABETH ANN CHERRY who married ROBERT JAMES GILL whom are my 3rd great grandparents).

Having, and more and more data being made available online it certainly helps us genealogy buffs.

I have been a member and volunteer at findagrave for almost 7 years now (as of August 2015) and find it a great resource where we can pitch in and help each other from afar to locate our relatives. I thank all who have helped me as a "newbie" to findagrave and hope I can help others too. I've made some very dear friends through findagrave over the past almost 7 years and look forward to meeting many more, so have changed by contributor page volunteer to our new zip code 73098 (previously 78729).

Wallace Ware Thornberry
I saw your post on Dwayne Sessom's log and wondered if he got back to you. Wallace Thornberry is my third great uncle. I also left a message but never heard back. I'm confused as to the state of this issue. One of the tributes makes it sound like it has been taken care of.... but the note for help still remains.

Nellie Wilson Bridges 130281855
The last name of Bridges was listed on the burial plot location records (Resthaven) and in the obit. When I took the photo the headstone had Wilson listed. Robert Wilson 96998583 Obit had James Wilson & Nellie Bridges listed as a parents. Hope this helps you. I do not know anyone in this family.

RE: Sarah Annie Biggs-Sims (1871-1944)
I sent a rather lengthy reply via email. I am always interested in all my ancestors and their descendants.

RE: Adeline (Stubbs) Jackson
Hi Lynda,
Finally stop long enough to reply to your last message. We lived and my daughter and family still live in Blanco.
I was waiting to ask my friend who knew the few black families in Blanco. What year did was Mr. Jackson who worked at the bank for 21 years.
I search for d/c for Adeline and could not find one either. I praise you for doing genealogy that down the road is going to be harder to find. I found about Peyton Cemetery because my friend told me about it. I didn't go but I found listing for the Blanco County historical society. I created the cemetery and add it to Findagrave.
We are moving back to Blanco, but it takes time.
After I created I ask for headstone photos and someone did take some for me.
Where I live, I saw a field with weeds and then BINGO, I saw headstones. Nothing was going to keep me from going in and take photos of the h/s.
It did not have a name and the headstones were far from each other. It is a big field, and when I download the photos, I found out that it was a black cemetery and the name of the deceased d/c name the cemetery which was Pearsall Negro Cemetery. I was happy and enter the cemetery on Findagrave. Took photos of all the headstone that were there. It does not take much to make me happy, lol, just give me a cemetery where no one has taken any photos and I love to take h/s photos. When it gets cooler weather, my friend and I will go to the cemetery, it should still be active. So, if you need for me to look for a headstone, just let me know.
God Bless,

RE: Adeline (Stubbs) Jackson
I got the information from Blanco county historical society online. They should answer what ever you want to know

Just now checked my e-mail and it appears you found Mary Beatrice's obituary! Glad I could help. I was working from an index of Hasley Cemetery done in the 1990's. The ladies that did it found no stone for Mary, hence my guess she is next to him in Hasley.

Thank You so much for your kind offer. I too am a genealogist for many years. The gypsy people are very difficult to find, they never settled down long enough to be on too many census records. Not all Brewers are gypsies so sometimes it is a hit and miss kind of thing. If I run into a brick wall I will take you up on your offer. Thank You, it is interesting finding connections. I am afraid that your Brewer is not a gypsy. It is unusual to find Brewer, Young and Smith with no Gypsy ties.

Thank You again

Forgive me I should explain to you. There are Brewer's and Smith's and Young's that are gypsies and these are the people I am looking for. Often they did settle down and leave the life style of their parents. Just wondered if this might be one of them.
