Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family history for the last 10 years. Along the way I have been able to meet and become friends with a lot of cousins that without doing family geology, I may have never known them personally. It has been very rewarding to learn the history that my family contributed to the building of this great nation, along with the addition of helping Texas becoming a great state that it is today.
I have just begun trying to link, along with building biographies on Find A Grave for my family. If I record something incorrect please let me know, I will fix it or if you are interested in managing the memorial page and you are a closer relative than myself. I will be more that glad to transfer management to you.

Minnie Stockard Cates
The photo for Jesse and Minnie Cates, is that Minnie or is it his second wife? Minnie died in 1929, making the age of the individuals in the picture, 49 and 47 (if taken in 1929) or younger (if it was taken before 1929) Thanks!

Imogene Miskel Greenwood
I notice you have left flowers on her memorial and address her as Aunt Imogene. Was wondering if you have researched her mother's side of the family. More specifically reasearch on the Richardson family.

James Cate (Cates) Lewisville and Denton
I have an old Colt Revolver that has documented Cates family history.

The Colt Revolver was in the Cates family from about early 1879 until John C. Cates of Pagosa Springs, CO sold it in 1985. In a letter I have signed by John C Cates in 1985, he references several generations of history as follows:

Floyd S Cates - first to have the Colt in 1879, - John Floyd Cates - his son, next to get the Colt,Roy S Cates (John F Cates son), next to get the Colt in about 1916 John C Cates - youngest son of Roy, next to get the Colt, about 1960.

John C Cates says that his father Roy settled in Mills, NM...and I see where John f Cates died there in 1944 and Roy Died there in I believe that I have the right family here. My research has John Floyd Cates father noted as James Alonzo Cate (aka Cates) , which is a contradiction to the letter I have (he was referred to as Floyd)...but very plausible as people often went by knicknames or other.

Do you know if James Alonzo Cate was aka Floyd?

Can you help me out with some more Cates family history, and locations in texas? How about copies of some old pictures?

The family indeed looks like they had a very "colorful" past with claims of this Colt being involved in several killings. I would be happy to send you pictures and copies of the letter, and pictures of the Colt.

I hope to hear from you or others. M Henneberry. email me

I had requested a photo of the grave for John Butler. The volunteer was unable to find the grave. Do you happen to have some information that will help him find this grave. He is willing to go back if I can find out more info. Thanks!

Hi, went ahead and linked parents to him, and then made the transfer. I also believe in connecting family, no matter how close or how far apart the link may be.

Imogene Greenwood memorial
I have linked Imogene Greenwood to her parents as requested. Will transfer her memorial if you would like. I think family should manage family memorials. Send me an email if you would like a transfer. Regards, Mary
