|Bio and Links|
I have been researching my family lines since 1995.|
My dad's paternal family lines came to Texas in the 1890's from the Tennessee Valley state-line area of Limestone Co., AL/Giles Co., TN. Surnames include Hasting(s) aka Hasten, Hargrove(s)/Hargrave(s), Holt, Meadows, Nelson, Browning, Vernon. Daddy's maternal families came to Texas from Calhoun/Randolph Co., AL. Surnames include Browning, McCollum, Perry, Noel, and Morris. Many of Daddy's ancestors were in Jamestowne, Virginia before 1700.
My mom's maternal families are primarily of German, Cherokee, Scots-Irish and English descent. Most of her ancestral lines immigrated to America in the 1600's or early 1700's. Her most notable American cousin is President (General) George Washington. Her lines also include my most "modern" immigrant, William Winkler and his father-in-law Michel Zerr, both of whom arrived in America, via Port of New Orleans, in the 1850's. Other surnames in her direct lineage include Blanton, Boone, Cook, Sturdivant, Keller, Mills, Crenshaw, Green, Lane and Ball.
Mom's gg-grandfather, Joseph R. Boone and his wife Virginia E. M. Crenshaw were living in Fannin Co., TX in early 1840's qualifying desc. for Daughters of Republic of Texas. Virginia Crenshaw's ancestral lines include Mary (Patti) Ball, a cousin to George Washington. Contrary to family lore --(passed down for 4 plus generations) -- initial DNA studies indicate that Joseph R. Boone was not related to the famous frontiersman Daniel Boone. Joe Boone's maternal grandfather was John Christian Reis (aka Rice or Reese), a German Hessian solder, captured at the Battle of Trenton by Washington's troops. Johann deserted the Hessian Army and fought for the American Patriot cause (in both the Army and Navy). He also served his adopted country in the War of 1812.

#98174564 is my 3x great grandmother. Would you happen to know where her son, Edward Louis Hasting, and his wife Annie Della Horn Hasting are buried?
|Ross & Gayle Smith||Vernice Brackeen Memorial|
Thanks for the correction you suggested for Vernice Brackeen and for the info regarding her parents. L. G. and Vernice were very dear friends to me when I was a student at Auburn University in the early 1960's. I knew her name, saw it on the tomb, and still typed the wrong letter. My Bad! Ross Smith
|John in Racine WI||Sharon DeFalco Memorial# 38038797|
Thanks for catching my transcription error, in regards to Sharon's year of birth. It's been corrected.
|Gene Hill||Lucille Brown Sheats|
You sent me this:
Her full name was Francis Lucille hargrove, daughter of Sam R. Brown and Eva Hargrove and enumerated as Francis in 1920 Limeestone Co., AL census. Her brother is Vernon R. Brown buried Roselawn-see Texas death record below.

99% of this has nothing to do with a memorial for Lucille Brown Sheats. This is a nice memorial with a gravemarker photo.
I don't even know what your suggestion is. If you want me to copy and paste all this stuff on the memorial, then no, I won't do it. If you want me to change the name on the memorial, I won't do that either. I used the name on the obituary and on the gravemarker. If I change her name, others will make a duplicate, because they won't see it on the list.
If you want me to link the memorial to her family, I will need a Find-A-Grave number. Please don't send me a load of useless data that doesn't pertain to the memorial in reference, again.
|Angie Knott||RE: Thelma McMillion|
I fnished recording the plot numbers and did the transfer as requested. :)
|Angie Knott||Thelma McMillion|
She is now linked to her husband & her parents. I would prefer not to transfer at this time because I am working on the numbering system update for the whole cemetery. Thanks for your understanding.
|Brenda J. Rogers||RE: Blanton|
That would be great! Lemuel Oliver (1810) is my 2nd great grand Uncle. You can send it to my email address email@example.com
|Brenda J. Rogers||Thomas Blanton|
If you notice I have the Blanton's in my bio. I have over 216 Blanton's. I go out of my way to find Blanton's Starting with a 2 great grand uncle- Lemuel. But I don't have this Thomas 1931 in my tree and since you have information, I will transfer this. Maybe this will help me.
