I am a 77 year old woman that got involved in my ancestry about 20 years ago. After I retired from being a cosmetologist about 15 years ago I really got involved with finding my ancestors. After researching to find them I decided that I should go and visit there final resting place. I flew back to Texas where most of them were laid to rest, then took a road trip all over the state. I visited 27 cemeteries plus the San Jacinto Monument. The papers of my g-g-grandfather (Daniel Parker) are stored There. I feel like I really got in touch with my roots.
