Bio

I got interested in learning about my family background after the folks who could tell me about it were all dead. My dad used to try to talk to me about it, but I had no interest. My mother used to enjoy walking through the very cemetery where she is buried now and remember the people who were buried there. I guess better late than never. I am just an internet geneologist. I really admire some of the cousins who have been doing the work for years the hard way. I inherited dozens of letters from my grandmother dating back to 1894. Using Ancestry.com has enabled me to figure out who some of the people were that wrote the letters. Sometimes I get lucky and find a descendent of a letter writer to send a copy of a letter to.

My cousin has entered information about our family and written beautiful eulogies that give me tears every time I see them. My grandson and I took some pictures for her to upload after she started with this site.

My family names are: Evans, Baty, Clark, McCullough, Wiggins, Martin. We are Texans from back in the 1850's on the Evans side and back in the 1880's on the other sides. Mostly our people traveled the standard route...Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, Texas. I saw that same migration route in a museum when I visited New York.
