Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family has been in the central Texas area since the 1840s, so my efforts have been concentrated in that area, mainly in Bandera, Medina and Kendall counties. I am the county coordinator for the Atascosa County, Bandera County, Comal County, Gillespie County, Guadalupe County and Medina County TXGenWeb sites, which have (and still are) turning up a lot of interesting history. I have also been working on my husband's Gillespie County family tree (I swear he's related to nearly everyone in the county!), and on my son-in-law's family tree, which has me researching in Guadalupe and Comal counties. Between all these, the list of names I'm researching is substantial.

I strongly believe in free genealogical information. That's why I volunteer for as many local genealogy websites as I can find, and I post my results to free genealogy sites. I encourage everyone to add their burial records to this wonderful database, so that these memorials, some fast disappearing, will truly never be lost. If you find your family here, and would like me to transfer ownership of the page to you, please let me know! I'm not into racking up big number counts on my stats. I AM into having family members monitor their own kinfolk's memorial pages! Please request transfers through the memorial page itself. Due to the overwhelming number of correction/addition requests I have been receiving, I may occasionally transfer memorial pages automatically to the requester. PLEASE if you are requesting a transfer, make sure you are logged in to Find A Grave when you make the request so I will have your member number! Also, please be aware that a large number of the memorial pages I have created are my relations, so if you send a request for transfer and I don't immediately comply, it is probably because I am related to that person as well. Usually a flower on the page with the signature "Family Historian" is a tip-off that the person memorialized is a relative.

I happily give permission for my Find A Grave photos to be used by anyone for their family research.

I'd like to acknowledge the invaluable assistance of the intrepid Jane Jahns Rice (thanks, Jane!) for assisting me with photographing the large San Geronimo Cemetery in Seguin, Texas.

RE: Borchers family
I thought so. Thanks I have family books for my grandmothers 3 other main families Ahrens, Alberthal and Wilke. I'm trying to get something together for her, she is 92. She loves her family genealogy.

Borchers family
Thanks for accepting the corrections, I am working on a Borchers book for my family. And I am copying a lot of info for myself. Is your husband a descendant of Louis Borchers?

RE: Dorothy Gray Harvey
You are very welcome.

The time of day I went resulted in a photo that has a shadow. I will try to get a better one and replace it.

Best Regards,

Agnes Emm Baker Morgan
Hi! I noticed Donna I noticed there are two Memorials for Agnes. Andy Baker and I are cousins to Agnes and I believe he created another because he could not find the headstone.

Hi Donna,

I just transferred a good handful of memorials to your care that are either in the Bandera cemetery or have family members there. There are also a few other Bandera folks that I am not related to that I thought you probably knew that I have transferred to you too. I hope you do not mind the transfers. I knew that you would take great care of them.

Thanks, In memory

Joseph Marion Scruggs
Donna, thank you for all the work that you do. My name is Shirley McMillan from Bandera, TX. I grew up in Asherton, TX and lived across the street from Joe Scruggs, wife Alice and their 3 children. Downloaded Joe Scruggs find a grave information.
The three children:
Robert Scruggs
Joseph Marion Scruggs "Joe" Jr. born 1937
Mary Alice Scruggs (about 1 or two years younger than me.)
I was sad to discover that Joe Jr. died in 2000.
I have been looking everywhere to find Robert and Mary Alice. Robert was the oldest. I heard that possibly Mary Alice married and lives somewhere in the Hill Country, not far from Bandera. Would appreciate any help regarding my search. Any suggestions?
Thanks for your time.
Shirley McMillan
