|Bio and Links|
I'm a family history buff with strong ties to the Southern U.S. My family on my father's side goes all the way back to the original "Old 300" Austin Colony settlers in Texas (the first officially approved colony of non-Spanish/Mexicans in Texas), so I am a very die-hard, proud Texan!|
I've recently become interested in finding the final resting places of my ancestors, hoping to one day visit these sites, so I'm very happy to have discovered Find a Grave. My thanks and deepest appreciation to all the people who contribute!

|DReese||Abraham's Marker Inscription?|
Hi I have seen this marker before but never as closeup as it is here on Find-a-Grave.com. Thanks Stacy for the great close-up photo. I have been struggling with my Reese-ce) line since I began my genealogy almost 3 years ago. I finally see that this 'much saved' marker photo has no clear birth date on it at all! Plus it appears to also be inscribed '11M' meaning this little Abraham didn't even live a full year!(As most Reese's know there were several Abrahams' born) I still do not know for sure if my Father's line goes through the 'famed' Abraham, 'adopted son' of Solomon Reece-ce. What IS tragically dis-heartening to many of us whose ancestry leads us to this juncture of the "Abraham Reese-ce 'bound boy/adopted son 'scenerio is the reality of this knowledge that if Abraham Sr was only an adopted son of Solomon Reese - then WHAT IS OUR REAL SURNAME? What is the Sir Name of Abraham's biological Father ??? Oh, the agony and ecstasy of Genealogy!

Thank you so very much for the transferr. I am back in my office in DC so it will be a couple of months before I can get back to James. :-( But I do appreciate it. :-) Donna
|CoolGenes||RE: Abraham Reece|
Thank for your feedback, Stacy. Yes, I am aware of the variety of contrasting dates and documentation on Abraham Reece. It magnifies the need for further documentation.
Stacy, thank you for the memorial on Abraham Reece. However, I have a question about your data. How do you know Abraham's birth date is 1746? That certainly is not clear from the headstone picture. Do you have some other record? When I blow up the headstone to carefully view any residual detail, it looks like it could have one time had said 66 years 11 months - the raised impression in the stone might conform to the bottom oval of a 6, not a 7. That would make Abraham's birth November (any day after the 6th) 1756 or December 1756.

You didn't leave an e-mail. I did take a photo of a "John Henry" Outz. No dates on the marker...but it is a CSA (Conf States of America) with his assigned unit. Send me your e-mail address and I'll e-mail you the photo. Mine is listed under my profile.

If the Westbrooks are you kinfolk you might want to look at the photos I just posted of some of them on their memorial pages.
I'm kin to them through Mary Susan Westbrook a daughter of Samuel and Nancy Westbrook.
You might want to try Maggie Bryan in the Highland Cemetery there in Deport. She is also one of their children. Best Regards,

I reside in Sugarland, TX. I live close to the cemetery. When we moved to this location in 70's the cemetery was in very sad shape. I do so wish you could have the memorial transferred to you so that you could add additional BIO info. These men are so important to our history: They deserve to be honored through all generations.
Hoping to see additional info on Alexander Hodge.

America Kegans Green was also my Great Grandmother. She was a wonderful pioneer type woman and her Grandaughter who spent wonderful times with her told me great stories. I knew Donna Roy Smith and also Ruby Green Smith. Aunt Ruby was very active in the Texas ex Ranger Association and there is information on that group in the Rangers Museum in Waco Texas. the portrait of Major William Green hung in the Hall of State in Fair Park, Dallas during the Centennial 1936 and the Pan American Exposition in 1937 - Yep, I'm old to remember all of this.

Parent's names came from Dallas, Texas Death Certificate, State File No. 66788, Informant Donna Ray Smith which shows Ruby May Green Smith's parents as William M. Green and America Peevyhouse. We may be related, would you please email me at email@example.com. Thank you.

Thx Stacy, for posting Clarinda's grave info. She was my GGgrandmother. My Grandmother (Iva Agnes Kegans Stewart) talked about her a lot....................Never really paid much attention until after my Grandmother's death. Now I know why she was so tough.
