Bio and Links
Bio Photo TEMPORARILY--If you ask for a SAC, please don't give up on me. I WILL get around to it. And if you don't hear from me in a timely manner, please send another SAC.

I am getting quite a few messages for simple name, spouse, date changes. PLEASE, PLEASE use the "new" edit offerings on each memorial under the edit tab. Saves us both time, and eliminates mistakes. And, always check the little box that gives you a copy of what you sent as an edit. Thanks.

Please, please always check to see if there are memorials already entered BEFORE you enter a new memorial. FG and we here in Bosque County do not like duplicates, and nearly always ask that the earliest memorial stand. PLEASE do not post death certificates! If there is a good reason to state an unusual death, send a notice and I will post it.

I am a native Central Texan, presently living in Bosque County and a member of the Bosque County Historical Commission and BC Genealogical Society.

If you find a mistake, please let me know. I do not mind transferring if a memorial is a relative, but otherwise, I would prefer not to. However, I inherited many memorials from some retirees, and on other cemeteries, other than Bosque County, I would consider transfers.

I am currently researching several families: Streight/Straight, Birdwell, Custer, Boulware, Barber, Frans.

The reason that I had not added her maiden name as Johnston is that her mother was married to a man named Andrew Langham before she married Joseph Johnston. Jack Anna used the name Johnston, even though she was born in 1850 and her mother did not marry Joseph Johnston until 1855. In some old pictures, found one labeled Aunt Fanny Pinckham who turned out to be her sister after researching her. I do believe her father was Langham, even though she did not use that name.

Thank you so much for taking those pictures. Good to get them photographed while you can still read them.

Simmons Anderson Everett #58867326
Simmons was named for his father Simmons. There is no one in our family named Simeron. Both of these men were named for a grandfather & a father named Simmons Everitt who died in Bedford Co. VA in 1822. The Everitt family comes from Northumberland Co. VA in the 1600's

RE: Pederson/Pierson Family?
Those are all from the same family origins and I do believe that she added everything that I sent her. Thank you. I am sorry to hear about your friend, Linda Huff.
