Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love genealogy my only wish is that my husband of 40+ years had the same interest so that we could do this together. Second to that my daughter, Jana has picked up the interest and whenever possible she and I both work together, which is very rewarding. The old saying "two heads are better than one" is definately true. In Feb.2012 my husband had a stroke and with the care for him my time is limited for genealogy and entering memorials on findagrave. I still love finding time here and there to play around on the site. It is so rewarding to find a memorial of an ancestor, still finding new ones often, last one was as recent as 10/15/2013. As more members join and more memorials are entered I'm sure the rewards will continue...thanks to those who submit and manage memorials w/o you this site wouldn't grow.
This is a wonderful site for honoring passed loved ones. Hats off to the one who thought of this idea. Thank you for your hard work as well.

ANY MEMORIALS I HAVE CONTRIBUTED MAY BE COPIED AND USED FOR GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH OR PERSONAL USE ON FAMILY TREES, ANCESTRY.COM ACCOUNTS AND OR FAMILY NEWSLETTERS, ETC. WITHOUT SHARING WHERE WOULD GENEALOGY RESEARCH BE? IF THERE IS A MEMORIAL THAT I HAVE SUBMITTED THAT IS A LOVED ONE OF YOURS, ASK AND IF THEY ARE NOT CLOSELY RELATED TO ME I WILL BE GLAD TO TRANSFER. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT IT MAY BE WRITTEN IN STONE BUT STILL BE WRONG AND SHOULD BE USED ONLY AS A GUIDE FOR YOUR RESEARCH. IF YOU USE MY NOTES, PLEASE GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE, I DO.
Happy hunting,
Diana 46807288

Sgt. William Thomas Gass, Howell's 11th Light Artillery
Your "William Thomas Gass" is mentioned twice in my 1.046-page book that is from handwritten records. The 6th edition of my book will be printed in April 2015. Below is my entry for him in my 200-page Name Index:
.
GASS, Wm. Thomas Gass (1845 TN-1906) son of Sarah McFadden & Andrew Powell Gass; m1-N. Given, m2-E. McDade; Howell's 11th Light Art'y, Sgt (Fannin Co, TST)
.
Please help identify the "Sgt Wm. Greene" enumerated with Sgt. W.T. Gass' mom in the 1870 census as depicted in my entry for him in my Name Index:
.
GREENE, Wm. Greene, b-1831 TN; enum with Sarah (McFadden) Gass in 1870 Fannin Co TX cen p144 (Lt, Howell's 11th Lt Art'y, TST)
.
Please add a note to your Find-a-Grave posting: "Sgt. William Thomas Gass, Howell's 11th Light Artillery Battery".
.
Curtis Payne of Tulsa OK has for years led the task of reconstructing the history of this military unit. Thus far, about 170 soldiers have been identified. They were "sort of" financed by the State of Texas while they were stationed in Indian Territory and beyond.

RE: Mildred Stewart Breeding
I transferred Harold & Mildred to you. I can't wait to see when you update their memorials. I love to see faces to memorials if you add them. You are welcome and thank you, any help I can get with the xtra memorials will be much appreciated. If you see any other family members you would like transferred, let me know. I am much obliged.

Mildred Stewart Breeding
I just saw your offering on this memorial. How was she related to you? You are welcome for the memorial. I love honoring who I can with a memorial. I could transfer Mildred to you if you would like.

Thank you. I just hate seeing a memorial without a photo. I love to put a face with the name. I wish I had known her.

Thanks, C.M.
