Genealogy is in my blood, my Mom got me interested in researching our family when I was 18. I now maintain the Henderson County TXGenWeb site.|
I am a member of the Henderson County Historical Commission, TX A.G.O. (Athens Genealogical Org.), Sarah Maples Chapter of the NSDAR and The Confederate Rose Texas Chapter of the UDC - United Daughters of the Confederacy.
I like to help out researchers and by adding other names maybe someday someone will add my allusive ancestors.
Go to my Dad's memorial Ray Shumate and leave a flower, he loved motorcycles, airplanes and old cars!!
Transfer requests should only be for DIRECT relatives within four generations. This would be your spouse, children, parents, siblings, grandparents, great-grandparents, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. When requesting a transfer, please state your relationship to the individual.
Any NON-DIRECT relatives (aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. For these extended family members, you can create and add them to your Virtual Cemeteries.
The Genealogists Psalm
Genealogy is my pastime, I shall not stray.
It Maketh me lie down and examine half-buried tombstones. It Leadeth me into still courthouses;
It restoreth my ancestral knowledge.
It leadeth me in paths of census records and ship's passenger lists for my surname's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the shadows of research libraries and microfilm readers,
I shall fear no discourgement.
For a strong urge is within me;
The curiosity and motivation they comforteth me.
It annointeht my head with burning mid-night oil; My family group sheets runneth over.
Surely birth, marriage, and death dates shall follow me all the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the house of a family history seeker forever.

Please use the burial edit button near the bottom of his memorial to move him to the Hopewell Cemetery in Smith County, Texas. This is the Hopewell Cemetery in Swan with many burials (not the one with only one burial).
He is buried there with his second wife, Martha Ann Arthur.
|beket||James Osgood Andrew Brown|
Just passing this along as a potential line of inquiry.... I am sorting through a very muddled family account that seems to mix up generations. But I think James Osgood Andrew Brown may be the son of James Brown of Talladega County, Alabama, who may be the gentleman buried here-- Find A Grave Memorial# 86077506: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=brown&GSfn=james&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSst=3&GScnty=86&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=86077506&df=all&
I cannot prove it, and the name of his daughter on the webpage doesn't fit my research. "My" James Brown [b. c. 1801 GA, died after 1850] had three known sons, James [b. c1832 in GA], John, and Willis, plus daughter Helen Elizabeth Brown who married Elbert G Morris of Morrisville, Alabama. James the son is known to have gone to Texas and was still alive c1905. The mother of this family was either Lunetta or Burnetta Sudduth, who died prior to 1850. The couple was said to have come from Lincoln County, GA. This names fit with the family of James O A Brown.
The muddle is the account claims the elder James Brown remarried "Miss Welsh" the sister of "Att Welsh" in Talladega. However, this sounds very much like the marriage of James O A Brown who married Matilda Walsh, whose brother was Atlas Walsh. Thus I believe someone mixed up father and son in the retelling of the family history. This is not my family. I am related to the Morris family, and so I am passing this info along for anyone who might like to double-check and pursue this.

|Brian Edwards||Looking for Edwards in East Texas|
My Father was James P. (JP) Edwards of Tyler, born in Emory in 1919, lived in Tyler. His Father was Horace Haynes Edwards who lived in Tyler and Emory and is buried in Liberty Hill Cemetery in Tyler. He was married to Rose Lee Edwards also buried at Liberty Hill. Her maiden name was Kemp or Kirk. I am looking for the siblings and descendants of my Great Grandfather Edwards. There are some Lewis in the family somewhere. The name Maddie Lewis comes to mind.
Not sure if you were helping someone else -I am sorry - I did not get the addition added - would rather give it to a family member or someone that knows them
Can I transfer this stone to you - so you can make the addition from the newspaper - I thought it must be a family member of yours
