Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am 65 years old and love doing family research. I live in Alvin, TX and love to fish. I have 3 little dogs that I adore. I believe in God and Country and the men & women who defend it. I'm also old, Irish and not shy. Have a great day.

I want everything to be as correct as I can make it. I do this out of respect for them and who they were. As I am also researching family I try to have the same consideration for others as I expect from them. Even with my own family if someone see's something they think is wrong I'd like to know it and then I may or may not change it according to what I have and what I know. I've learned not even gov documents are always correct nor name spellings on them. So good thing I like fishing because in some cases it takes a lot of it to find out anything or another family member in this up to their necks with lots of resources. I have two of those in my family.... God Bless all those dedicated to obtaining correct information and supporting and working together on sites like Find A Grave and Ancestry.

One thing that bothers me is people who add photo's of stones at such an angle or distance that it can not be read or with flowers obstructing the information on the stone. To me if the stone can't be read DON'T PUT IT ON THE MEMORIAL. The stone has important information on it that we need as verification of information. To me take flowers off and get over the stone and close enough to be able to read it in the photo. The stone is the most important thing, not the flowers on it.

PLEASE DO NOT POST A CLOSE UP OF A SECTION OF THE STONE IF THE COMPLETE PICTURE OF THE STONE CAN BE READ. THERE IS NO NEED FOR IT AND IT TAKES UP PHOTO SPACE. THANK YOU.

Morris twins
You state that these two brothers are twins but how is that possible with different birthdays by 2 weeks.

Just curious

John D. Oliver Morris (1806 - 1826)
Burgiss Allison Morris (1807 - 1847)


thanks

RE: JAMES GARRETT
Thanks Roanna, I'll be looking forward to finding out more about him. I have a lot of research but I have gathered so much over the years I don't know if I can find all of it. I'll see what I can find and go back through it. Have a blessed day. Donna

Good Morning,

I am also a direct descendent.

Hi, I put a photo on the memorial you have for Alexandera Meldrum #129061079, because this is the person I think you mean. But it is Alexander, not Alexandera. Let me know if I am incorrect. thanks

Coffee Family
I see you are hard at work gathering the Coffee family, I do not see a connection with the Coffee Family you are working on BUT there is in the Union County New Mexico History book an article on the Ira and Ethel Coffee Family who moved to Union County in 1912. Ira was son of Findley and Fannie Coffee, born in Oklahoma 1889 If you will EMail me I will be happy to send that page to you, might be something of value to you.

William J. Huff
Dear Roanna,

My husband's great great grandfather is William J Huff through his daughter Hester Huff who married Henry Newt Crowder and their daughter Susie Crowder who married Fred Davis.

Since you uploaded his photo, I was wondering if I could get a copy that will print in a larger size.

Thank you,
Diana Kirby
