I try to leave a Purple and Green flower on every one of my family memorials, not just the ones I maintain, but everyone. I think it is important.
After 5 years in and around Fort Worth, Texas locating documents on my 2nd & 3rd great grandfathers on my dad's FUNDERBURG & SMITH lines. My goals now are to further document my Texas ancestors. On my dad's side I have researched the names from the von der Burg lines These include:Funderburg/Funderburk, McCarty(I believe this could also involve McCarthy/MacCarthy, McCarthey), Finn, Foreman, Oden, Pace, Moore, Smith, Ramsey, Bohannan, Lynn/Linn, Beard, Black, Mosier, Landreth, Nabors, Langley, Littrell, McWhorter/McWater, Sullivan, Roberts, Pyle, White, Dobbs, Dye, Aderholt, Barnes, Schoolcraft, Ellison and still working on some of the older Funderburg ancestors by collecting documents. I have one book by Guy B Funderburk and one by Alvin K Funderurg.
My mother's families are HUDSON & WILLIS, McGough, Goyne, Acree, Seale, White, Taylor, Murray, Ward, Fowler, Scarbourough. I met online with Tim Hudson and found out he and I share about 4 to 5 family lines and he was kind enough to share his research with me and I am so grateful to him.
***(I have moved back to Post Falls, Idaho)***
I also research Walls, Sweazy, Niemi, Hardesty, Hatcher, Siford,(Sypher,Cypher), Becker, Jolley, Riley, Smith, Lyster, Robertson, Kepler, Sapp, Bruce on my husband's family.
Since coming to Texas I have become a Find A Grave photo volunteer in Wise County and now Parker County and I enjoy it.
Researching my family has been the best thing I have done for myself. I love documenting my ancestors. There is a sense of pride in knowing the life each of my ancestors lived. Had they not lived the life they lived, I would have not been born.
