Originally from northwestern New Jersey, I have lived in Central Texas since 1970, am retired and enjoy my children and grandchildren and great-grandchild. I have been with Find A Grave a few years and have made many friends all over the world and in my home area. This has been truly a blessing. We have a group of FindAGraver's in the Central Texas area that come together once a month for lunch and a gabfest in Waco. All members welcome, so please send an e-mail to Ruth Brown, firstname.lastname@example.org, to be added to our list for notification of time and place. Enjoy being able to help others make family connections and any other information I can find for them. My own personal heritage lines: Winter, Randolph, Kostenbader, and Osmun. My favorite animal pals are BBit and Sugar Baby (cats). My companion, Rascal, also a cat, crossed the Rainbow Bridge at 17 years of age on May 28, 2014. I miss his snuggling at night.. Please feel free to contact me at my e-mail address or edit on a memorial, instead of posting requests on my member page. You are welcome to use my pictures for other projects. Please try to help other members that have requests in the many cemeteries around you. Some are probably trying to climb over stone walls that they have in their lineage and just need a little boost... Been there, doing that!!
