Bio and Links
Bio Photo 💗One day I'll be in Christ's loving arms. Do you know where you'll be after you've drawn your last breath? In the Bible John 14:6, Jesus says, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father (God) except through me. If you put your faith in Jesus, and believe He died and rose again for the atonement of our sins, you can experience the eternal life that God has waiting for you in Heaven.✞

My name is Vanessa Lynn Porter and I am 29 years old. I am an artist and a poet. Being mixed white and black has made it interesting to see the differences in my many heritages. I enjoy researching my family's genealogy and I love to add family pictures so that those who come by their memorials can see who they were. I am always interested in meeting distant relatives. We used to have a Blaise family reunion but they stopped doing it when I was younger. If anyone is related to me please message me, I would love to exchange pictures and stories! I am related to all of my memorials except one. If you recognize a memorial as your kin let me know! I'm a mom to my sweet 1 year old and a wife to a wonderful man, my soulmate Eric.

I am proud to be German, French,
Polish, African, Cherokee, American,
Southern, and Texan! :)

🌹Family names:
German: Kowald, Lange
Polish: Pieprzyca, Dugi, Mika, Wrobel, Olejnik, Keller, Josko
French: Meregle, Schaaf, Blaise
English/American: Mayberry, Earl, Foscue, Smith, Courtner

Our Samuel Smith
I would love to know what stories you have about him, Molly and their children. We can connect on FB - I am Carlton Burgett and I descend from their son William Foscue Smith. My email is zoomie2k at hotmail.

RE: Samuel Smith
Thank you dear cousin. Through which of their children do you descend?

RE: Andreas
Amen. To vilify those honored dead and their flag takes away their courage and sacrifice. This is part of our history. The screamers don't have to like it, but they have to deal with it. History teaches us. The lessons learned will prevent us from making the same mistakes. You can't know where you are going if you don't know where you have been.

RE: Andreas
If you come up with any thing, let me know. I am usually in Victoria once a month.

No matter what is on the news, I am from the Deep South and I support keeping the Stars and Bars. Slavery is never right, but there is a lot more to the South than that. I salute Andreas and call him a Brother in Uniform.

If you have any names of relatives that may be with or near Andreas, let me know. There was no listing for any one named "Kowald."

RE: Hello Jeanne
I was in Victoria today. The cemetery Andreas is in is located in the historical part of town. It is a beautiful part and a beautiful cemetery as well. No office. The short answer is, no luck. The longer answer is much longer.

The City took over the historical cemeteries back in the '80s. The park service has taken a lot of that job over. The park service has two data bases, theirs and the City's. I suppose folks walked the cemeteries and wrote who is buried there and what other info was on the stone. The park service also has another source of info as well, but we struck out in all three places. This doesn't necessarily mean that Andreas (SP?) isn't at Evergreen, it means that he may not have a marker.

I am so sorry. I hoped to give you good news. The good news is that he left his mark on the wall; you and your family. The best news is that even though I didn't find him, God knows where is is.

Bacon my sweet kitty
Thanks for visiting Bacon. Sorry, I'm way behind with my thank yous and forgot where I left off. However it didn't go unnoticed. It was much appreciated.

You are so very welcome, Vanessa. My brother had pet rats when we were growing up, and I know how adorable and lovable they are.
