Bio and Links
Bio Photo I feel that keeping family records and sharing them for our loved ones to pass down from generation to generation is extremly important. I have been working on my surnames list for about 3 years when my grandmother handed me a box of very old photos. I wanted to know who they were, where they came from, what they did. These were the people who made me who I am today. I worked diligently for over two years on my family. Late nights on the computer and week ends in cemeteries but I love the history, it's my history.
I was amazed one day when my husband told me he had no idea of any history of his fathers family so off I go on another mission!
I feel deeply that the info reported here is of great importance and needs to be documented correctly. Some may think its strange to go trapsing around in cemeteries taking picures of headstones but I really enjoy it. If I can help out even just one person find that "missing link" in their family tree then I will feel that I accomplished my goal.

Hello, cousin! Sorry, I completely missed your message. By my calculation, we work out to 4th cousins, once removed. Thanks for your message!

RE: Blain
You're very welcome. I'm related to the Blain's, too, through the Lindsey and Stovall lines. There are others at the Rose Hill Cemetery, near Terrell, in Kaufman County.
