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, email@example.com, 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 ! 1that 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!!
