Bio and Links
Lived in Texas 25+yrs. I started family research when I was laid off at the bank. I did not think to ask the older relatives that were still living questions about the family. However with much persistence I was able to find out more than I thought I would. Mom and I first journey took us to Big Sandy, TX where we met the Mayor who knew our family, he use to deliver milk to them when he was young, he directed us to the oldest lady still living that knew more about our family, she has since then fell a sleep in death. However she ends telling us much and Identify many of the photos we had in possession. I remember her saying, now wait awhile I have to get my thinking cap on. at 92 at the time her heart might not been well, however her memory was pretty good. She told us to go outside on those screened in front porch look across the way, there a grandparent lived.

Thank you so much for the pictures of the markers of my aunt and uncle. I don't drive very far, now, and I know I would never have gotten anything. I very much appreciate your effort.

RE: Hunt family grave photos
"Ok, I deleted two."

Thank you again. I was on the phone this morning telling Nellie and Mac Hunt's elderly daughter-in-law that a nice lady had gotten photos for me.

Hunt family grave photos
Thank you for taking the photos of the Hunt family's graves and posting them.

I really like the view with the 3 three in rows.

On my memorial for Gerald Hunt, you posted 4 photos. I was somewhat surprised that you would post 4 of a single grave. As you know there are only five photos spaces on each memorial. I have another personal photo that I plan to post on his memorial so could you remove one of them. Thanks.
