Bio and Links
My desire is to preserve and share the family history of the branches of my and my wife's ancestry. The family trees that I manage are: Franks, Keathley, Anderson, Swindell, Parks, Broom, Wallace, Towles, Moyers, and McBride. I am also working to get as many linkages as I can get on the families that I manage. I am also striving to build my sixteen virtual cemeteries to the highest number I possibly can.

I am not a member of the Franks families, but I do research in Coryell County, and I have resources for the Franks families that you mentioned: Henry Melvin Franks and Andrew, descendant of Peter Franks.
Coryell County, Texas Families, 1854-1985 which is available at the Gatesville Public Library has articles on both of your Franks families.
If you will contact me by e-mail., I will send you a photograph of the articles.

RE: Flora and Ervin Pettry
Understandable. If at any time you feel you are no longer able to manage them, please let me know and I will take good care of them.

Thank you for your consideration.

RE: 4th great-grandfather
Hi Ralph ,
Came across this older message when I received another not from someone on my Dad's side. How is the Franks book coming along? Hope you haven't had too much snow this winter like up in the northeast U.S.
Take care,

Find A Grave #75316369-created by Franks. I have a duplicate memorial for my Great Grandfather, Sutton Polk "Sutt" Tassey Find A Grave #121776304. I would like you to transfer your memorial over to me, my memorial is more complete and lists his 6 daughter's and one son. Addie Tassey Reynolds, daughter of Sutt Tassey was my grandmother.

Cole, Lewis Memorial Suggestions
When you want family linked you go through the relationship link. Suggestions are posting parents names or any of the info that was provided to you. On the Powell K. Lewis Memorial I provided info about his WWII notes I did not expect verbatim or line for line to be placed into BIO. I let the memorial manager decide. Sorry that you miss understood.
