Bio and Links
Bio Photo Valerie has been doing genealogy as long as I can remember, but she went "obsessive" with it after our son's birth in 1996. It's tough living in Southern California with Valerie's roots in the midwest back to Pennsylvania & Virginia and Bob's in Alabama and Georgia.We made some wonderful friends and found lots of cousins. We try to post what we find so that others will not have to beat their heads against all of the "brick walls" we have. We want to make our ancestors more than just dates and a stone in the ground.FindAGrave is the best Family Tree we have found.Just let us know if you would like us to make a correction or add a link to a memorial we have created.We are also willing to do transfers if you can show a close link. We do not completely adher to the F/G protocals for transfers.

Happy Hunting!

Bob and Valerie,
Do you have information on Verna Freeman?

Until today, I only had the following:
Verna Viola Freeman, Female, Born about 1902 in Texas or Georgia.

Today I found the following, but I do not know if it is the daughter of Ollie and Cora.

The new information is as follows:
Verna Freeman Vogler, Female, Born August 13, 1901 in Iola, Grimes County, Texas. Died July 22, 1979 in Houston, Harris County, Texas. Buried in Hollywood Cemetery in Houston. Find-a-grave number 82505707. Wife of James Theos Vogler.

I tend to think it is the daughter of Ollie and Cora. A Census Record would say born in 1902. Iola is less than 30 miles from Bryan where Ollie and Cora married.

Best regards,

Bob and Valerie,
Thank you. You gave me pieces of information I did not have. How I have more research to do on those three people.

Bob and Valerie,
Greetings from Dime Box, Texas.

I found your post for Ollie and Jessie. Thank you. I have some questions. Have you been to Zion Cemetery in Grimes County? Are there headstones for them? Do you know that Jessie is Ollie's second wife?

Ollie's first wife was, Cora Anna Brundrett. Know as Annie, she was a sister to Maurie Mae Brundrett Tippit, my Great-Grandmother.

I live about 80 miles West of the cemetery. ASAP I will visit the cemetery. I suspect that Annie is buried there too. If I find their graves, I will take photos and post them.

Best regards,

Joe W, Tippit Sr.

ps: How are you related to Ollie?
