Thank you Fred
I have read quiet a lot about the Banta Men and know about their being Texas Rangers. They were brave pioneers with
Apparently the courage to fight for what they believed in.
We are fortunate to have those men and women as our people. I honor their courage and cherish each of their stories. At least the stories I know. I am sure somewhere out there, there is someone who knows Celestinas story, and with a little luck....perhaps I will find them. If you come across anything let me know.
Best to you.
I am sure you know about the new Texas Ranger center in Fredericksburg next to Ft. Martin Scott. I plan to stop in and check it out. Probably there are names of the Rangers there and hope to see the Banta names along side of all the rest.
|Caroline Gibson||Thank You|
Fred, thank you for your reply. Great to make contact. I was planning to go to the cemetery today. However the weather brought us some much needed rain. Yes, I will have a DRT membership thru Robert, Celestina husband and thru Isaac also. Robert and Celestina's son Conrad "con" Gibson was my
My grandmother Florence Walker Gibson wife of Julian Victor Gibson. was very fond of
Uncle Wilson Will Bana, one of Celestinas brothers , in fact I have several pictures of him in my grandmothers album, the same ones that are on the Internet.
I do not have a logical reason other than kin...but I seem to have a deep feeling of connection to Celestina. I did from the moment I found out about her. One of those sweet gifts that life hands you if you are aware of family.
My best to you and thank you again for your reply.

I just found this lady in my search of records for my Gibson family. She was married to my 3greatgfather Robert Alexander Gibson. I am researching to become a member of the DRT.
For some reason other than that I have a need to know more about her. Most especially a picture of her.
If you can shed any light on her I would so appreciate it. I hope to visit her grave site very soon now that I know where it is.

Thank you for sponsoring this memorial. If you would like me to transfer the memorial to you, please let me know. Marilyn
I do not want to transfer this memorial page but I will be happy to post any additional information for you, giving you credit. Of course, you can post photos without managing the page.
Thank you for sponsoring the two memorials. A first for me. Yes, I will transfer them to you. If a closer relative asks, I hope you will consider transferring to them.

|Christine||Nimitz Memorial sponsored|
I see you have sponsored 3 of the Nimitz memorials I maintain. Would you like to take over ownership of these sites, as I am not related to them?
