Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy genealogy and did quite a bit for my mother before she passed away. I plan, in the future, to add all the information I have on the families to this site and other search sites for those who may be interested in the family histories I have and with hope others will share their information with me.

I am also familiar with most of the cemeteries of Wilson County, Texas. If you have a question, please ask and I will try to help you.

I am currently researching the following names:
Whittington, Hobbs, LeClere, Sample, Lee, Garrison, Clegg, Henrie and many more on my collateral lines. Hobbs and Whittington and Lee are my direct lines. I am also a reunited adoptee with an entire new family line to research. The main line I am researching on my bio family is Scherffius, along with Mansfield and Kennedy.

RE: Don Zimmerman, Memorial# 20775421
Regarding the memorials 20393272 and 20775421 - I do not have any preference for how they are handled. I am not related to the gentleman. If you wish to contact and request that they be merged into one memorial that you control, it will be fine with me.

Best regards,

RE: Frank M. LeClere
The Sarah LeClere buried at Confederate is the wife of James Buchanan LeClere. He was Louis's half brother. There is also another half brother Rev. George Amandas LeClere. He also is buried in Texas. Half of the children moved to Texas, some stayed in Pennsylvania and some moved to Ohio. As far as the birth year of Frank's father Louis, I am not sure, but it looks like he served in the Civil War.

Citing this Record

There are a few errors in the census records as far as his age goes I would rely on the death record as 1842. I believe the 1836 birth year would reflect the 1880 census (Spelled LeClare)where in 1910 it would be accurate (He was living with his son Frank at that time.)What cemetery did you believe Louis was buried at in an unmarked grave? Was it Confederate or with Sara at Oak Park?
