I'm a second generation native Houstonian, and have been doing family genealogy intermittently for several years. What a gift we are leaving for future genealogists if they have availability to all the data that the F.A.G. family has contributed.
RE: J. Cornelius McLain, F.A.G. #65362373 My grandmother was Katie McLain Jones. J.Cornelius McLain was my great grandfather on my mother's side. You have my permission to use any pictures of the McLain family you desire. I heard a few stories about the old gentleman. Someone said that the family had a steamship line in Scotland. In the aftermath of World War I, it bankrupted. I have no way to verify it, but the story makes for interesting listening. So good to hear from you.
Maudie Connolly Helmer There is a photo of Maudie and Ruby that we would like to get a larger copy of. We would like to get a larger scan of the original photo. If you have the original photo please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
RE: Catherine Royal Kell, F.A.G #131421029 You are wonderful! It did not open for some reason but, Thank you for reposting a larger version. If it's easier you may send in jpg privately to ladyredly at yahoo. Again, thank you!
Catherine Royal hi Cac, I am doing research on Leonard Royal's family and was wondering if you would please send me a larger copy of her death cert. The one on her memorial is too small for me to read. I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks and best wishes
RE: Theresa Wood--Woodlawn, Houston, TX I don't think that Theresa Wood is a relative, but I have Wood ancestry, so it's possible. That's why I try to never overlook a Wood, if I can. My grandmother, Lillie Eliza Wood Thomas, Memorial# 135449377, is buried in Alice Fraternal Cemetery, Alice, TX. The Wood family, along with the Thomas family and numerous other families, moved from Tennessee to central Texas in the late 1860's, I believe.
How about you?
I was mentioning other photos I took. I have one that shows Theresa Wood's gravesite before I found her buried headstone. I didn't think it was appropriate to attach it to her Find-a-Grave memorial.
Theresa Wood--Woodlawn, Houston, TX I've searched for this gravesite before without success. Today, I decided to poke around and found the grave marker completely covered with dirt and grass. Cleared the area and the marker is now uncovered. If you're interested, send a private message to my e-mail and I'll share other photos.
Johnnye Welch I have corrected her memorial to show she passed away in 1995. I also added her obituary. Thank you so much for spotting this mistake. You help Find A Grave to be a better source of information.
