Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been interested in genealogy ever since inheriting many records from my Southern family (Mother's) more than a decade ago and too few from my Northern side (Dad's). My mother's aunt, Ida May Higgason Dickens, was a woman ahead of time: divorced, with two children to support, she eventually became a professor of History at a college in Montana. She did her research the "old way", with dogged determination, and left voluminous records of Virginians, Georgians, Mississippians, and Texans.

My father's roots (Snyder, Woodring, Andrews, Schlosser, Saeger, Reichel, among many) were in Pennsylvania. My husband's were also in Pennsylvania (Hammerlee, Weaver [orig. Weber], Galbraith, White, Schreffler).

The image is of my great-aunt, May Dickens.

RE: Gloria Brunot
Thanks.... Find a grave kept freezing up on me this morning. The 20th came from when I was trying to put the year 2014 in.

RE: Edward A. Brown
Catharine Flickinger Brown (John Brown) was my 3rd great aunt, but Ed Brown et al were not descendants of them, so were probably cousins of John Brown. I got the pictures from my grandmother because Ed Brown was a neighbor of William E. Flickinger (grandma's father). So, I posted them on F-a-G in case somebody was interested in them. The relationships were figured out through the census. I also have a picture of Hettie Brown from the same era, but could not figure how she fit in from the census. Maybe you know. I can email you the picture if you want it, or add it to another appropriate memorial if you tell me which one. No more room on the Ed Brown memorial to post it and I don't know of any relationship to him. You can also have the memorial, if this is part of your family.

Edward A. Brown
I put up a memorial for Edward Allen Brown, son of Peter and Sarah Ann Woodring Brown, which includes some pictures of him and his sister and daughters. Thought you may be interested. He is also in Watson Run Cem. Have some pictures of the Woodring men, too. Paul and Charles, I believe. Dr. Paul Woodring married Mary Ann Baughman, sister to Christiana Baughman Flickinger, my great great grandmother.

Since I am not related, she is all yours. Maybe you will know some of her relatives who might be interested in her Memorial Page.

I understand that you are not maintaining this memorial but neither am I. If you want someone to fix it then contact the memorial creator on that memorial.

I connected his wife to his site but I did not write the obit and I don't know where to change it that she preceded him in death. Do you want it transfered to you ?

RE: Raymond Heslep Cobb
Ah, yes... I remember not being sure how to spell her name when I found her in the census records..
So she is buried in Masonic Cem, Caldwell, Burleson, TX... is she not?
Are you near there so you could get a photograph of her stone? Thanks.
