Family research has been a part of my life for over 30 years. I do volunteer work at the LDS Family History Center located in my neighborhood even though I am not Mormon. I call myself the gentile librarian. I live on the west side of Houston in Katy. I was born in Waco, Texas and go there every few months to be with family. Many of my family members are buried in the Robinson Cemetery south of Waco going back to my great-great-grandmother. Growing up in Robinson, a farming community at the time, was a wonderful experience.
At the age of fifteen my parents and I moved to Texarkana, Texas. I completed high school and junior college in Texarkana. While attending UT my parents moved back to Robinson. I did six months of active duty in the Marine Corps and five and a half years in the reserve program. After completing the six months active duty, I moved to Houston, TX to seek my fortune. I would have to say my wife, children and grandchildren are my fortune. I am happily married and retired and have eight grandchildren which add joy to my life. If you think I can help you, feel free to contact me.
If you have any corrections or additions to a memorial, please let me know. If you would like for me to transfer a memorial, please let me know.
RE: Brian J Sullivan You are welcome. A lot of the requests in these cemeteries don't have a location listed. I checked my resource for locations, no luck. I have found some just while looking for the ones with locations. I guess I will have to go to the office and see if they can assist me. It's going to be getting to hot to spend as much time looking as I do now.
RE: T M Hogan I have Thomas with 4 children from the Census. Sarah Francis Clemintine Hogan, Mattie Hogan, Samual Houston Hogan and Elizabeth Hogan. Sarah married DeWitt Clinton Dunn and had two children, Kate and Thomas. Sarah died in Houston in 1908. Mattie Hogan married James Middleton and is buried in Glenwood under Martha M MIDDLETON, died 1890. They had Samual Middleton and Bessie Middleton. Bessie appears to have married as many as three times but I do have her passing in 1958 in San Antonio. Elizabeth Hogan married Robert Anderson . I do not have much on Elizabeth. I wish I had a signature but the only thing I have from the Hogan line is a bible from my Second Great Grandmother Jane Hogan Fuller. It just had an inscription in it with her name and a note from an uncle in Georgia. Thomas' death date is a mystery. The 1884 fits because he disappears on any other paper trail after that date. I hope we can learn more. Best Regards, Beth Patterson
RE: Washington /Glenwood Sounds good-but give me advance notice. I'm retired and as a financial account spent decades meeting other peoples schedules. No more-on my terms. Hope to get to meet you. Mike Benge
