Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family lines since 1995.

My dad's paternal family lines came to Texas in the 1890's from the Tennessee Valley state-line area of Limestone Co., AL/Giles Co., TN. Surnames include Hasting(s) aka Hasten, Hargrove(s)/Hargrave(s), Holt, Meadows, Nelson, Browning, Vernon. Daddy's maternal families came to Texas from Calhoun/Randolph Co., AL. Surnames include Browning, McCollum, Perry, Noel, and Morris. Many of Daddy's ancestors were in Jamestowne, Virginia before 1700.

My mom's maternal families are primarily of German, Cherokee, Scots-Irish and English descent. Most of her ancestral lines immigrated to America in the 1600's or early 1700's. Her most notable American cousin is President (General) George Washington. Her lines also include my most "modern" immigrant, William Winkler and his father-in-law Michel Zerr, both of whom arrived in America, via Port of New Orleans, in the 1850's. Other surnames in her direct lineage include Blanton, Boone, Cook, Sturdivant, Keller, Mills, Crenshaw, Green, Lane and Ball.

Mom's gg-grandfather, Joseph R. Boone and his wife Virginia E. M. Crenshaw were living in Fannin Co., TX in early 1840's qualifying desc. for Daughters of Republic of Texas. Virginia Crenshaw's ancestral lines include Mary (Patti) Ball, a cousin to George Washington. Contrary to family lore --(passed down for 4 plus generations) -- initial DNA studies indicate that Joseph R. Boone was not related to the famous frontiersman Daniel Boone. Joe Boone's maternal grandfather was John Christian Reis (aka Rice or Reese), a German Hessian solder, captured at the Battle of Trenton by Washington's troops. Johann deserted the Hessian Army and fought for the American Patriot cause (in both the Army and Navy). He also served his adopted country in the War of 1812.

I'm happy to transfer your cousin to you. I recently inherited his memorial from the creator who is no longer doing FindaGrave. I have added a photo of what the area of his grave looks like, and a link to his wife. I'm sure you will take good care of him. :)

Ruth - I will transfer this memorial. Did you want her husband transferred as well. Sorry to have to ask if you were related. I have had some people request transfers who are not related - just to up the number of memorials they manage. Always willing to transfer to a family member. If you want her husband, please request through edit and I will transfer him as well. Thanks!
