Bio and Links
I have been researching before home computers, so I been at this for a long time. I was born in Goose Creek, Harris Co. Tx. There were 3 small towns: Baytown, Goose Creek, & Pelly. The towns merged & now are all Baytown. Exxon located in old Baytown was once the largest refinery in the world. I lived there until 1999, because my TX. University "kids" moved to Austin. I now live near by in Georgetown. Our family moved abt. 7 miles from Goose Creek to a small settlement of Wooster. John Q. Wooster wrote a letter to the Brown fam. in Iowa, glorifying the beauty of TX.!! The Brown fam. came to TX. in 1895. They became rice farmers & ranchers. My husband of 50 years had alzheimer's, so my research was curtailed for 8 years. Now, I have Ancestry, Find A Grave, & all the wonderful sites.
When I was young, I belonged to the Baytown Genealogic Society and we would go to the cemeteries & record the stones. Now, I am nearly ninety & I do not record grave stones now. Going to cemeteries alone is not a good idea for age.

RE: Find A Grave Photo
You are very welcome. Your request just happened to put me there the day after Memorial Day festivities ended. There must have been 70 to 80 thousand flags on graves that day! They must have run out of flags because the back half of the cemetery did not get flags on every grave. Glad I could help.

RE: Avery family
Good to hear from you. If I recall correctly, the Meadow Meetinghouse Cemetery is full of Averys.
I remember appreciating the detail of the Alvah
Avery monument. -Wendy
