RE: Bane family of Groveton
I did find a distant relative through Ancestry and mailed the photo off to her today. I have an electronic copy on my computer and also posted here so, if anyone else would be interested it could be made available. I looked through some of the shops other photos, but what she could find at the time didn't have any names. Love doing that and matching current family to old photos.

RE: Annie Lee Holmes
I am a petroleum landman working in the area. We have a portion of the minerals under lease. The heirs of CB owned 1/2 of the minerals in a tract of 59 acres. Finishing up last night, it looks like the Holmes interest in the tract now belongs to J.C. Holmes. Crit, right? I love this work, especially the history of the lands. Your help on Annie was the last piece of the puzzle. If you would like, when I am done, I can email you a flowchart and scans of the documents that shows the transactions on this particular tract of land.

Thank you so much for your help! Your input on Find A Grave was immensely helpful in getting my project completed.

Annie Lee Holmes
I am hoping you may be able to help. I am researching the heirship of a C.B. Holmes out of Houston County, Texas. I am just about done, but am having trouble connecting one dot.

Do you know if Annie ever went by or signed documents as "Anner"? I have a deed signed by Anner, but I believe this is Annie Lee, wife of J.H. Holmes (son of C.B).

Thanks in advance,

Ron Connor

Hello, my name is Douglas C. Johnson (#47683562) and I was wondering if I could have your permission to use your photograph of the graves of Eulene Ray Vahldiek (maiden name unknown) and Paul Ray Vahldiek, Sr. at Forest Park East Cemetery in Webster, Harris County, Texas on the FamilySearch Family Tree website. I would of course list it with full credit given to you for the use of the image.
Thank You,

Hill Cemt also named Lane Prarie Cemt, Trinity Co. TX?
Is this Hill cemetery also known as Lane/Hill Prarie Cemt, Trinity Co? "Lane/Hill Prairie Cemt. is reached from Glendale Community, TX turn north off State 94 at the Glendale Cemetery sign. At the fork in the road turn right & go 4.8 milesto a pasture gate on right.
New information has been received by Cemetery Committee indicating Hill Cemetery was originally called Lane Prairie Cemetery. The Trinity Co Historical Comm. was verbally told the land originally was owned by Dude Hill, hence the name it has been known for the first and second editions of Trinity County Cemeteries. Other local sources say Lane Prairie Cemetery... One of the e-mails explained the source of the name: "James M. Thornton bought that land in 1882 and sold it to his son-in-law George W. and Susan Thornton Hashaw. It was sold by George and Susan's children in 1949. James M Thornton sold an acre of land off the corner to the Lane Prairie School in Jan. 1900 which is recorded in the land records at Trinity."

Good Evening To You:

"THANK YOU" and I truly and I dearly (Thank You) for the transfer of Paul Hinson his memorial. I have added some of My Direct Family Genealogy, plus I found his complete month & day that he died. I knew I was married when he died and we went which was a very long trip from Mobile, Alabama at that time. Any way I am blessed to see a photo of his grave marker.

Thank You Also For Helping Other People. And I Thank You For Beening A Member Of This Most Wonderful Site

May Our Lord Continue To Bless You And Your Family Always.

Blessings In Christ Always,

Robert Miller

I don't know if I ever replied to your question. The two Rogers boys were brothers.
