Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family has been in the central Texas area since the 1840s, so my efforts have been concentrated in that area, mainly in Bandera, Medina and Kendall counties. I am the county coordinator for the Atascosa County, Bandera County, Comal County, Gillespie County, Guadalupe County, Kerr County and Medina County TXGenWeb sites, which have (and still are) turning up a lot of interesting history. I have also been working on my husband's Gillespie County family tree (I swear he's related to nearly everyone in the county!), and on my son-in-law's family tree, which has me researching in Guadalupe and Comal counties. Between all these, the list of names I'm researching is substantial.

I strongly believe in free genealogical information. That's why I volunteer for as many local genealogy websites as I can find, and I post my results to free genealogy sites. I encourage everyone to add their burial records to this wonderful database, so that these memorials, some fast disappearing, will truly never be lost. If you find your family here, and would like me to transfer ownership of the page to you, please let me know! I'm not into racking up big number counts on my stats. I AM into having family members monitor their own kinfolk's memorial pages! Please request transfers through the memorial page itself. Due to the overwhelming number of correction/addition requests I have been receiving, I may occasionally transfer memorial pages automatically to the requester. PLEASE if you are requesting a transfer, make sure you are logged in to Find A Grave when you make the request so I will have your member number! Also, please be aware that a large number of the memorial pages I have created are my relations, so if you send a request for transfer and I don't immediately comply, it is probably because I am related to that person as well. Usually a flower on the page with the signature "Family Historian" is a tip-off that the person memorialized is a relative.

I happily give permission for my Find A Grave photos to be used by anyone for their family research.

I'd like to acknowledge the invaluable assistance of the intrepid Jane Jahns Rice (thanks, Jane!) for assisting me with photographing the large San Geronimo Cemetery in Seguin, Texas.

RE: Eulola Davenport Bandera Cemetery
Thank you for your reply about my grandmother Eulola Davenport. I also am interested to learn more about the Davenport's. They were divorced when my daddy and aunt were in high school. They had moved to Pelly TX. My daddy and my aunt have both passed away . It was good to hear from you and hope to stay in contact.

Eulola Davenport Bandera Cemetery
I am just beginning to try to search the genealogy for the Davenport. Eulola was my Grandmother. She was my daddy's mother Charles Ronald Davenport. I do appreciate all you have done for my grandmother. I will continue searching for more relatives. Thank you

Just wanted to thank you for your generosity in sharing the photos that you take, it is a breath of fresh air to have another historian who doesn't feel overprotective of the photos they have taken.
KINDest regards,
Nancy Hickman

RE: John Alfred Mackey
Hi Donna. Unfortunately, I don't think this is the same John A. Mackey. This one was married to Marcella Butler. Sorry I can't help.

William. Henry Garner
Thank you for your kind words for my father, Wm. Henry Garner. I did genealogy research in the late 1970's on my family, but had discontinued because of family, job, etc. I am excited to have the time at this point to continue, and there are so many aids available! It is very exciting.
Again, thank you,
Henryetta Garner Kidd

Paul Barton
Guadalupe Valley Memorial Park

I am Paul Barton #48021873.

Reference the above cemetery, everything that I come up with gives that the cemetery is located in Comal County, Texas.

Can you help me understand the difference when you have a different county?

Hello Donna,

Johann Christian Wahrmund
Hi, Donna I am currently trying to find a grave for my great-great-great-great Grandfather who is listed above. I am currently working on my Daughter of the Republic of Texas application and see on Johann listing that you might know where his grave is located. I have looked but have not found it. So I was wondering if you could please give me the exact place where he is buried. My email is thanks for all your help!

Contacting Emory Schnuriger
My name is Brian Rick, I had contacted you on Facebook about the Medina Co. Page but I am trying to find out how to transfer some memorials that was created by Emory Schnuriger. His page stated that he had passed away.
He had created several memorials that were my family members and I was wondering how to find who is taking over his memorials and how I could ask for a transfer. Your help is greatly appreciate.
