Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogy nut! I discovered family history when I was 14 and have not been the same since. Love to share but expect the same. As our family expanded, so did my research. I was born and grew up in Port Lavaca on the middle of the Texas coast.

Some of my lines I am researching: McCown, Turner, Skates, Hunt, Byrd, Clark, Simpson, Williams, Vaughn, Beasley, Baird, Beckman, Schulz.

Some of my wife's lines: Hoyle, Roberts, Blankenship, Tharp, Bear/Bare/Bair. On her Mom's side they are all Swedish, so the name changed every generation.

Lines of my son-in-law's Dad's side: Betts, Boyd, Dixson/Dixon, Huckabee, Gibson, and Meek. His Mom's side: Brannan, Pacetti, Masters, Andreu, Fouche, Rogero, Llina, Triay. Most her lines are from Menorca, and moved to Florida in 1768.

Find A Grave is a great site. I feel it is our duty to edit and keep a memorial up to date as long as we are living. It will be an even greater service for future generations.

I do know the guidelines of Find a Grave, but will transfer regardless of guidelines, unless it is my family, or someone I especially care about. I also have no hangups about linking to memorials that have no definite burial place. Many times I know the county and even the part of the county an ancestor lived, so that's better than just having USA.

I do have a website, but no information is posted on living family, although I do collect information on down to date when I can get it.

Meharg / Skates family
There is a request for Seally Meharg and William Meharg at College Mound Cemetery. Please take a look at the problem we recorded. I am wondering if they were actually buried in another cemetery along with many of the family members listed in the BIO.

We did find Bud M Meharg and Hattie B Meharg.

H1! I saw Robert about six months ago. He told me all the family was doing great. Thanks for the transfer. My husband and I do not live in Victoria anymore, so I do not get to see all the Koenig Family.

This is not Emma Neisser's husband. It is her son.
Would you please correct and add her husband:

Johan Victor "John" Koenig
Born: 25 August 1879 Dubina, Fayette, Texas, USA
Died; 14 December 1937 Port Lavaca, Calhoun, Texas, USA

This is my aunt and uncle.
Thank You
Eleanor Neisser Jacobs
