Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in Killeen, Texas, Live between Johnson City and Dripping Springs, Texas.
A US Army Viet Nam Veteran, served three years, ninteen months in Thailand Signal Corp. Spent 37 years as a teacher and swimming coach, working in Austin, just out of the University of Texas in January 1974, Weslaco, Corpus Christi, Houston, and the last ten years in Laredo, Texas (2001-2011).
Just getting started in FAG and am excited about what I can do for others looking for ancestors and relatives.
My goals in using Find A Grave are to bring in depth ancestry to all my relatives that are memorialized on Find A Grave.
I am not into NUMBERS of memorials I establish. When looking at cemeteries where my family members are buried, I do try to record memorials when I find some headstones, in some cemeteries, that are not memorialized on FAG.
I have taken photo requests, but have found that those requests were not found in the cemeteries in my area of Texas.
I am also handicapped due to lack of high speed internet where we live. I use the Dripping Springs Library to upload photos and perform most of my Ancestry and Find A Grave work.

RE: McKay Family, Texas
My family is still close friends with Olivia's grandson.

We my family was good friends with her daughter Virginia and her son Neil.

My grandparents and my mother knew Olivia, I did not.

I got all my info from her grandson.

I recently found out while working on my tree that we are indeed related to them thru the Duncans.

My mother and Virginia first met when my mother was a camper and Virigina was a counselor and dance teacher at Camp Junaluska in Waynesville, NC

RE: Donald McDonald, 1827 date
The graves in Old Scotch Cemetery that do not have a stone that can be found, I went with info from a earlier cemetery transcription found at the library. There is a book with all of the graves that could be found at that time. I do not remember the date of the book.

Dennis Ralph Shoaf
I enjoy genealogy so always look at the name Shoaf. Sorry I never had the pleasure of meeting this family. According to Family Tree Maker civil: Canon: 6 it says I am half 4th cousin once removed. We share the earliest Shoaf relative I have in my tree. Find a grave has his parents and brother listed. I also have a brother, Dennis R. Shoaf that served in Vietnam.
Thank you for the kind words you left on find a grave.

S.P. McLean & wives

I can't add any information to what you already have and don't know about the two Jane McLeans. I am not related to the family. If I have any of your McLean ancestors in my memorials, just let me know which ones and I will transfer them to you.

I tried your email, but the message bounced.

Best regards,

RE: Slayden Leslie aka Martinez
I re-read your other msg to me ... your wife was one of his step-children, so yes I guess he was married more than once. (duh, on my part! been a long hot week)

RE: Slayden Leslie aka Martinez
I had added a note last night to pg of Slayden Sr. Maybe someone will see it and know something.

I find his possible name change highly odd. If he changed it, it was after the birth of his 2 daughters. Was he married more than once? This story makes it sound like he might have been.

Slayden Leslie aka Martinez
ANY idea as to when he might have died? The name "Robert/Bob Martinez" is a dime a dozen!

Was his name legally changed, or just something he did himself?

Need any and all clues to help find him I think.

RE: James Leslir photo
I do use for researching and entering most data for my LAMM tree. Church records for that era are usually the most helpful, at least are for PA, from where I originated & the state with which I have the most research experience. Most all people were affiliated with a church in the 19thC. Also, there are online death certificates for PA, but only from 1906-1963. Pennsylvania’s Department of Health started keeping statewide death records on January 1, 1906.
I'm not sure which death records are "out there" for the TN county research you want. Our PA county of Berks has online records for births, deaths, marriages, wills. etc. These are just references to the event; you must go to the county office to obtain the actual record.

I'm located in Monroe County; not sure where Rutherford is located. TN is a long state like PA, both w/lots of Counties with varied ways of allowing "public" information.
Best regards,
April in TN
