Bio

I was born at Travis AFB in Fairfield, California. My father was born in Iowa and my mother in Texas. I've now lived in both states. Currently in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I'm married with two grown sons and one granddaughter.

I'm a fifteen year breast cancer survivor and volunteer through the American Cancer Society as a Reach to Recovery advocate. It is my hope through education and research there will someday be a cure for all cancers. Until then, I will continue to be a volunteer, support those who are currently fighting the battle, celebrate survivors, and honor the memory of those who are no longer with us.

In November 2010 I retired. It was my mother-in-law who peaked my interest in genealogy. I'm currently seeking information for the Bahlmanns, Malzahns, Hagedorns and Bremers from Germany and Bremer/Chickasaw Counties in Iowa; Banks, Taylor, Jones, Reynolds, Fanning, Roberson and Elliott families from Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, South Carolina, and Hunt County Texas.

I became a member of The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution Lucretia Council Cochran Chapter in Arlington, TX on October 6, 2012. My gggg grandfather, Samuel R. Reynolds #A095841 served four tours in the Revolutionary War. The first beginning March 16, 1780 in Spartanburg Dist SC, under Capt. Benjamin Kilgore. He served three other tours under the following officers: Capt. Nesbit, Col. William Fair, Lt. Cliff Casey, Maj. John Ford and William Blossingame.

My interests are genealogy, photography, gardening, NASCAR, football (although I live in Cowboy country I'm still a die hard Viking fan), baseball, and traveling. The thing I enjoy most is spending time with my precious granddaughter. My favorite quote "Happiness is wanting what you have".
