|Bio and Links|
|I grew up in Lake Victor, Burnet County, Texas, and am familiar with the local families. While I am no longer in that area, I have done family and area research since the 1960s. My families include Risinger, Barrett, Farquhar, Everett, Barnett, Winn, Short, Lastly, Keele, Oldham and many of their branches. |
It is very nice to find a site like this one where something in my research might be of value to someone else. And...if I have it wrong, please let me know.
Everyone should be recognized and remembered; for who they were, and what they accomplished.

In the event you are related to William Alexander Hodge (probably a grandson of William Alexander Hodge, Revolutionary soldier), you may be interested in:
In sending in his renewal subscription to Frontier Times, W. O. Hodge of Mandan, North Dakota, writes: "I appreciate the old historical experiences of the early settlers of the Lone Star State. My great grandfather, William Alexander Hodge went there in 1820, I think, and settled in Brazoria or Matagorda county, and was crushed to death by a falling tree. No one knows where he was buried, but I think he was buried on his plantation. He was a Revolutionary soldier, and has a monument erected to him in some place. Grandmother afterward married a man by the name of Skelly, and I think they moved to Fayette county, where Skelly died. Then she moved to Burnet county in 1875 or 1876 and lived there until her death. Perhaps there are some of the old timers yet living somewhere in Texas who may be able to give facts in regard to these people.”

|MT1950||RE: Selina Berry|
I think that the information on Selina L Rogers as Selina L Berry's mother is correct. Although the obit for Selina doesn't name her as mother (just Mrs Z T), the time frame fits... also that her father remarried as her step mother is mentioned in the obit.. I used the paper clipping as a photo rather than a biography for its historical value. Prefer that as it is neat to actually read the story. Go ahead and send edits to link.

|MT1950||RE: Selina Berry|
That is interesting.. hope the info can be verified and linked.. if I find anything, will let you know. Just FYI, Selina (and that sure sounds better than the other name) is listed in the cemetery directory by Luice... Am not sure where Salmina came from, but I think it was online somewhere.

Salmina is the way her name was spelled in one source that I used, but will change it... Thanks for the input.

|Lloyd Paul Brannon, II||Easter Thank You 04 03 2015|
In the event that I have not thanked you, personally, for the transfers that you have provided me with, I wish to do so at this time.
My retirement from all my social and family duties have dwindled down since my health has had the opportunity to allow me to beat my God given expiration date, with the help of family, fantastic physicians and hospital, and the implantation of a pacemaker. Rest is my priority when not doing some physical duties, yet Find A Grave and family ancestry tracing is still fun.
To all my Find a Grave friends, you have all been a tremendous help with your contributions to me and especially to this site.
Happy Easter, be safe, have fun and Thank You.

I want to thank you for your work on Find-a-grave. I have been able to learn more about my family connections.
I want to ask for a correction on 116734210 Dorothy Pauline Adams Winter. She is my grand aunt and she is still living. This is why there is no date on the marker. Her sister, my grandmother, Margie Adams Turner passed away on Aug. 14. I decided to finally join the Find a Grave community so I can do her and my grandfather's memorial.
Thanks again for your work on this site.
