I'm a graduate student at Texas A&M University. I'm rather new to genealogy but am interested in learning more about my heritage. Thus far, I've been mainly focusing on my Hiatt and Woodford ancestors, as they're the most well-documented. I am trying to document everything I know about my relatives but am finding so many holes, even in the lives of relatives I've actually met. I wish I had started this long ago, but better late than never. I want to fill in the gaps for future generations.
I first started researching my family background a few months ago, while putting together an album of all the brides in the family to give my niece for a wedding gift.
Ida Creel Painter I have been trying to locate anything on Ida being linked to James Richard Painter or Hiram. So far, I have not been able to find anything on Ida. Do you have any information for Ida? Dob, Dod?
William Thrasher, FAG #108742777 I received your private message through James Painter. I apologize. I forgot I had removed my contact info due to a person harrassing me. My private e-mail is email@example.com. Any information you can locate will be greatly appreciated. I have found a distant relative and she was able to give me the information (Lela married a Thrasher. From there, I found the name William and then with your information on Find A Grave, I was able to be sure this was the same person. I will see if I can find anything on Hiram Creel. I know Ida is buried is an unmarked grave about 10 minutes from where I live. I hope you have safe travels and look forward to hearing from you. Donna Wilson
William Thrasher, FAG #108742777 I was reading the information for William Thrasher. You have information that William married Lela Jane Scott. They married 7/20/1909 in Garden City, Blount Co, Alabama. Lela was my step-great grandmother. She married my grandfather, James Richard Painter. I was wondering if you had an additional information for her, such as burial, additional children? Thanks so much! Donna
Thanks so much for your posting. I am the great great granddaughter of Augustus "Gus" Askew. He is my mother's father's mother's father. Gussie Irene Askew is my grandfather's mother.
