RE: Finding graves
Hi Karen,
Thank you so much for the kind words. You've made my day. It breaks my heart to find lost or neglected graves. If nothing else, I like to record them here on findagrave so they can be remembered and found by their descendants. I sincerely hope you find your father. My wish is that you have as happy a day as I'm now having because of you. Keep up the good work. Backwoodsman

Yes, I saw that...8 or 58.. interesting.. this kind of thing seems to have been common with transcriptions of the census records. I still think it very odd that she had a child that late in life... have found a few like that but not many.. thanks.

Carrie Lee Cobb
are you sure about who her parents were? Susan Riddle Cobb would have been 47 and there would have been about 12 yrs between pregnancies. How can we document this?

Thanks Karen with your help in proof reading. I have updated the info with correct Find A Grave #

Jim Armour
Herring Relations and Descendents
Hello Ms. Baker,

My name is James M. Armour and I just wanted to say that I am descended from the Herrings on my mother's side. Daniel Herring was my GGGGrandfather. He had a daughter, as you know, by the name of Luncinda Herring who married William Madison Graham. They were my GGGrandmother and GGGrandfather.
I hope you are able to find what you are looking for as far as your father's name.

Yes you can use the photograph for your family tree. I found the image at a auction house and took a digital picture of it, since it was identified.

I saw that you are looking for connections to your Herring family. I have a huge group of Herring's in my line. They came from Tennessee in the late 1800's to Bell County, TX. They lived in a place called Tennessee Valley because most of the families there were from Tennessee. There and over the hill near Belton. The Valley is now under the Belton Lake. Lots of them are buried at Resthaven Cemetery at Belton, Bell County, Tx.
Good luck with your search.

With the quick edit feature I have no idea who gave them the parents, but I agree, they could not be his daughters, so I have removed the parents as they were listed. The stones are old and hard to read, but the death year and ages were readable. Birthdates should be accurate.

I noticed that you left flowers on the memorial site for Sarah Morgan Teague.
I too am kin as she is my 4th great grandmother on my maternal side of the family. I had lots of information on the Taegue side of the family as I have researched for over 40 years. I am willing to share .
I admire your quest for more information on your family. Everyone deserves to know where they come from.
Please let me know if you need any assistance here in Texas. I am a member of Ancestry and other sites so if you find a stumbling block please feel free to request help. I wouldn't be as far in my research If I hadn't had others help along the way.
Best wishes.

You can call 501-589-5091 (Marilyn Deckard) or 501-589-2618 (Mary Wilson). They are on the contact list for the cemetery. They can probably get you to the right place for info. I no longer live in that area.

You're welcome. Are you related to Katherine? She was my aunt by marriage and they only had one daughter.

RE: Finding my Father
Do you have any info on your birth father? Do you know where he was from? I strongly believe in divine intervention, therefore I believe we crossed paths for a reason. I think it is interesting that you sent an edit for a cemetery that is composed of mostly my ancestors and you were distantly related to them. (Liberty Cemetery) Although there are no Herrings buried there, many do live nearby. Just trying to help put puzzle together. Definitely NOT trying to stick my nose in your business. I'm available if you need to know anything or if you have more info.
Best regards,

Hi Karen,
Just a note... if you have not heard of the closed Facebook group called Search Squad.. I would highly recommend you join. There is amazing help there with DNA, research and many, many reunions... some each and every day.

Thanks for info and links for Annabel and Mildred. I hope and pray that you will one day discover your birth father. Everyone deserves to know their roots. Good Luck!
Best regards,

You are her cousin 3x removed. I am her granddaughter on my dad's side. She was his mother.

I'm not sure if we are related, but I guess we are in some way.

Keep looking
I too, was adopted. I searched for many years and found my birth father first (thru my birth grandmother who was my first contact). After finding my birth father, I located two full siblings and 5 half siblings! It was an amazing journey I have never regretted. Found my birth mother 10 years after my birth father and found another 6 half siblings. KEEP LOOKING....its well worth it and good luck to you....
