Bio and Links
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?

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 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

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

I walked all over the cemetery and didn't see his marker. Any ideas? I can go back another time and re-look. :)

Trying to Locate Ancestors
Greetings Mr. Thrasher,

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. I'm so excited about this information and will be traveling to Eufala Friday after next and wanted to see if you have any additional information on my Great Great Grandparents? Please be in touch.
