Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been into genealogy for some 50 years and have never lost interest in helping myself and others find their roots. I find it a huge mystery game with many surprising discoveries.

TRANSFER REQUESTS: Please request if you are really a relative and will do something constructive with the memorial. If you are just a close friend, etc., the same goes for you. I will never refuse a request for valid reasons.

CORRECTIONS: additions, & family links when asked but no promises if you just send me an email instead of using the edit link. Use the Edit tab at the top right of memorial, then the Suggest A Correction option. Now we have the auto edit request and permission ability so that makes it easier. You can upload your pictures directly to the memorials, but PLEASE take pride on what you enter. Photos should be carefully composed and submitted with the highest resolution that FAG will accept.

RE: Thomas Paton Allen
Thank you. I posted a couple of pictures of them. I am still working on Eliza's history but I will be posting what I know soon. Her father was William A Roupe/Rupe. He was a postmaster in Mississippi, served in the War of 1812, and was a cattle raiser. One of the most successful trail drivers in Texas, Colonel George W Saunders drove cattle for him per the book Trail Drivers of Texas. He was one of the first settlers in Tuscaloosa Alabama. Roupe's Valley was named after him. After her husband's death, she lived with Samuel Henry Allen, her son, my great great grandfather. That was in 1910 and that's the last I know of her. Thank you very much for your interest. You remind me of me. I start working on genealogy and it doesn't matter who's it belongs to, I get so interested.

Thank you again,

RE: Thomas Paton Allen
Wow, that's awesome information. If you want to keep the "residents" together, I would understand. I've had lots of people ask me in the past if I wanted to take over a family member's grave, but I was never a member.

Thank you very much for taking care of the cemetery. Are you from that area? Do you know why he would be buried in the Connell family cemetery?

Just a little information you might like, his father Hudson Allen was the first school teacher in Williamson County. His grandson's wife's family (Chalk) has the first sheriff and deputy clerk in Williamson County and also one of the first two houses built in Georgetown and most believe the first baby born in Georgetown. His grandfather, Nathaniel Allen was in the American Revolution and was ordained by Francis Asbury, one of the first two Methodist bishops in America. My dad, Thomas Paton's great great grandson, was born in Georgetown.

I live in Lubbock. I've been to Williamson County many times as a child because my dad and grandparents were custom combines that worked in that area every summer. Of course, I wish I would have been interested in genealogy then.

Thank you for transferring, but as I said, if you want to keep it, I will totally understand. Thank you again for taking care of the cemetery and for responding.

I have been adding/correcting things on findagrave for years through other people but, I just recently became a member and I'm still figuring things out. So, if this is the wrong forum to ask, please let me know. If you are not related to Thomas Paton Allen, Williamson County, Texas, #34133835 and would like to transfer this memorial to me, I would be very happy to take it over. He was my great great great grandfather. Thank you very much. Sharon Buck

Harshbarger's Family
My wife has Harshbarger's in her family that married Cullen's.
Her Harshbarger is Joseph 1801-1867 married to Anna Wenger 1803-1872. If these are in the same family as yours I am interested in any information and pictures that you have that you might share and we will do the same.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! For giving me our Great Great Grandparents! And I did not think of adding my own number to make it easier. So thank you for that information also! We really do appreciate your kindness and I have a big smile on my face as I write this! Wonderful!

Lucy and James are our Great Great Grandparents. I would love to be able to have them to care for. To have them with our family. If you aren't related would you let me have them? It's important to my family.
Thank you for your hard work, helping families find family. A lot of us don't or can't travel to distant places to find our families graves. This sight has made a world of difference for all of us looking for our families. I am so happy to see Lucy and James here! Thank you!
