Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a 4th generation German-Prussian Texan on my mother's (Roesler & Mussyal) side and colonial ancestor (1638) on my father's (Ward, Hall & Coop) side. I'm currently working on the Ward, Hall, Coop, Clancey, Roesler, Mussyal, Moench, Elmore, and Holiday families.

The photo is the flag of Brandenburg as my great-grandfather, Rudolph Roesler, had immigrated in 1884 from Brodowin at Corin, Brandenburg, (Prussia) Germany.

I'll glady transfer a memorial that is not related, as I would expect others to do.

I have completed much of the Hall/Coop family tree from Tennessee as well as the Roesler, Mussyal and Moench families and I will glady share.

I have abt. 15,00 entries for families in the Wiedeville, Brenham, and Needville area. You may contact me through FAG or my email address.

The following statement is my written permission that any photo I take per request of another party on FAG, or those I personally contributed (grave/photos) that I may have added of others or family members can be used without futher permission from me, as long as it in an appropriate and decent content and for family and/or genealogy purposes. I would appreciate my name, date and a description to be shown on the photo.

Good Hunting!

RE: Edmund William White & Ida May White
I'm sorry, I don't have anything on James W/Nicholas White relationship. Looking at the Find A Grave entries, it appears James was b. Ireland 1845, and Nicholas b. NY 1840. It's not impossible, but I think it's unlikely that their parents would have returned to Ireland after the birth of Nicholas in 1840. So I doubt they are brothers. Possibly related, but I don't have anything else on them.

RE: Harold Hackenberger
You are welcome. Memorial Park Cemetery is a favorite of mine. I always take extra photos when fulfilling photo requests and the majority of them are military markers (it's hard to pass up a man in uniform). Thank you for the story. He lead a very interesting life. Red

RE: Comment
Thanks for the support! You can't believe how snappy qnd hateful some people got because I had a so called duplicate! How could it possibly be a duplicate, when they didn't have anything but the name and birth and death year, but they surely have thousands of numbers. I quit adding the Texas Rangers for a while and was even tempted to delete every thing I had on Find A Grave, but I had worked too hard at researching, so now I am going to go at it full steam ahead and let them yell all they want. If Find A Grave wants to take them off, then so be it, but I'll not let these "dup-hound" run me off.

RE: Clarence Arthur
Pete was my great uncle too, Grandfather Elroys brother. Pete and Gladys every year sent a package (the only thing I can really remember was it always contained several decks of cards which my sister and I looked forward to)

I don't know any of the family history. I did know he worked at Continental.

RE: Clarence Arthur
I've never located their marriage date. Just double checked my ancestry tree and the only info I have is in the comments on Clarence that he was married twice, but have no dates on either marriage.

Merry Christmas to you too. Connie
