I am a high school librarian, wife, and mother of two sons. I'm a seventh-generation Texan who's been doing genealogy for over thirty years. Findagrave is one of my favorite genealogy sites and has been a tremendous help in finding lost ancestors. My main surnames are Wheeler (maiden name), Bridges, Mull, Holmes, Reynolds, Mericle. My husband's surnames are Sanders, Mitchell, Morrow, Brinkley & Fletcher.
Information on Jim Reid Rau Thank you for creating a Find a Grave site for my uncle Jim Rau. I wanted to add my aunt's name to his site and to also link her site with her mother, father, sisters and brothers. I have only worked on these sites sporatically for a little over a year. I enjoy connecting my relatives and providing the information I have.
RE: William Thompson Fondren Thank you. You were right, the Pennington cemetery is not very large and the older graves seem to be situated in the same area. I was able to located my great-grandfather, William Thompson Fondren, his wife and her parents.
Alan Boger Tina, I changed his burial place to Garden Park Cemetery, Conroe, Tx. I do not know the plot so if you do; please let me know and I will add it to his memorial. Thanks for catching this. I only live about 2 miles of where his folks live and now his brother lives there. What a world we live in. Right?
Mary Ann Williams Vinzant Hi, my name is Shirlene and I was wondering who this Mary Williams belongs to. I am a Williams, my Grandfather was George Morgan Williams, his father John Thomas Tom Williams, and his father James Williams. This is as far back as we can get. We know that James, his brother John, and sister Martha was orphaned in Covington County, Mississippi. They went on to Simpson, Lawrence, Marion, Rankin, Jones, Pike and Lincoln and Amite Counties. This was around 1824, that would be the year the youngest, Martha was born. We have determined that they were raised by a Loflin family who were related???? They came from Georgia to Mississippi. You have such a beautiful picture of Mary Ann, and Smith County is right in the middle of my Williams family. Would love to know if you know anything about her? I see you are a Texas resident and she is MS born and raised???? Many of my Williams went to Texas both to visit and live. Thanks for any help you might be able to give me. Thank you for all you do for Find A Grave. It is greatly appreciated by myself and others. Enjoy your day. Regards Shirlene Gay Williams Kirchain
RE: A. G. Harper Tombstone in Wheeler Cemetery I suspect a closer relationship. I would like to discuss with you at your convenience. My email address is Rharper225@aol.com. I can then send contact information. There is definitely a story there. A. G. was an older brother of my great great grandfather, and there are other Wheelers in our family tree. Do you subscribe to ancestry.com? If so, I can let you have access to the family tree. Robert Harper
A. G. Harper Tombstone in Wheeler Cemetery Do you have any information on A. G. Harper's wife, S. A. Harper that was listed in the 1880 Census. A. G. Harper was a relative of mine from Louisiana, and I am trying to find out more about his marriage and what relation he may have been to the Wheelers. Thank you. Robert E. Harper
