Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always taken an interest in history and genealogy which I inherited from my gr-grandfather Porter Matteson. I find this site helps me to help others find their loved ones, even if they can't actually visit the graves. I enjoy helping with this mission. My goal is to eventually have most of the tombstones in McLennan County, Texas online for everyone to see.
I am willing to do some research if needed in McLennan and Falls County.
***Please use the Suggest a Correction for transfer requests or corrections. I will not do "all surname" searches or transfers. If you ask for a transfer please include your relationship to the memorial and your contributor ID. ***
If you have a problem with something I posted, please email me or click on suggest a correction instead of posting it on my contributor page. I will address the issue as quick as I possibly can.

Theodore "Adam" Portele
I was just adding some cemetery marker photos to my family members's pages when I came across this one. If I'm not mistaken, this is the marker for my grandfather, Theodore ARNOLD Portele, husband of Marie Schmidt Portele of Marlin, TX. My father was Ferdinand (Fred) Theodore Portele of Marlin and Houston.

Craddock Family
Thank you for the research of Gabriel Jackson Craddock I had no idea he was buried in Waco. He's my 5th Cousin, he was named after my 3rd G Grandfather Gabriel Jackson and his wife Virginia Ann Craddock is John Robert Craddock' Sister.
There's a book at Temple Library Genealogy section about the Families, and it has some stories about their lives. It's Weathersby, Childers and Craddock.
Noticed your related to the Bush Family so are we. All above are related to me through my Mom Gloria Hortense (Thomas) Davis. The above is her Mom's Family through Tunnie Jackson Jones Sister of Addie Jackson Craddock who married her Cousin Sam Houston Craddock. Thank you again.

I notice you have the name on this grave as John Edmon Patteson. This was my great grandfather and from all the records I have his name was not John Edmon Patterson it was Joseph Edmon PAtterson. John was the son.
