Well I haven't been doing this very long, but I became interested in genealogy after hearing family stories and gossip, mostly from my grandparents. I worked with my paternal grandparents the longest out of all the grandkids, so I heard a *lot* of stories. They passed away within 20 days of each other in 01/2005. |
I've made trips to the valley to visit the cemetery their ashes are buried at, and also to Karnes City TX to look for my maternal grandmothers family (no luck there). I made the first trip out there only to be told the woman who would have known where to look had passed away only a few years earlier, and that they hadn't started taking records until after she passed away.
I hate long road trips, and don't wish one through TX emptiness on anyone (hey it takes nearly all day to get from one end of the state to the other) so I love the idea of a site where people can request a photo from a local.
If anyone wants a photo, info from the Corpus Christi TX library or to correct anything I posted, feel free to email me!

Thanks for your offer to look things up. I heard there was a nice article and other papers donated by Father Michael Howell, about Stanley Osborne Welch. S. O. Welch was my great grandmother's brother. They had another brother, Mark, who (according to Father Howell) died while Stanley was present....and he told the story of being there when his brother died. I do not have a death date for Mark, but he was born in 1866, was on the 1870 and 1880 censuses with his parents in New Orleans, then I can find no records.
Would love to have copies of these papers.

I would really appreciate a message from you, please. I would really like to know how you got all this information and can you forward your contacts to me? I just would like to have the same thing done for my mom. This was very touching. I couldn't believe that this was up. My son found it by accident and forwarded the site to me. Please call or contact me. I would love to hear from you.

Hi, Lora, In order to fully research the death of Mary [Sparks] Hargrove [and other family members] I ordered the book "1919 ~ The Storm. A Narrative and Photographic History." This book includes is a list of 272 identified dead. It's very hard to read when you see the names of entire families that were drowned in the catastrophe. Thanks for writing.
