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.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE... WHEN SENDING ME A MESSAGE ABOUT A SPECIFIC INDIVIDUAL, KINDLY INCLUDE THE MEMORIAL NUMBER. I OVERSEE TOO MANY MEMORIALS FOR THIS OLD MIND TO REMEMBER. THANKS.

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.

I believe everyone prefers a typed Bio to be entered through the Bio button on the memorial page. If at all possible please transcribe the newspaper Bio and send it through the Edit button rather than attaching a photo of said Bio. I will gladly enter it in the proper location on the memorial.

IF YOU WANT TO ADD INFO TO MEMORIALS OF MEMBERS OF MY OR MY WIFE'S FAMILY, I MAY ASK YOUR SOURCE OF THAT INFO.

Wright family connection
Your e-mail bounced--here's what I tried to send you:

William Bonham's wife was my great-grandfather's second cousin. It would be great to have a Descendancy from the two of them, to fill in many blanks in that part of my Wright family. Eunice Mae Bonham was my paternal grandmother's third cousin, as were her brothers and sisters. I'll be adding Bios in the coming months, so will send you what I have.

William Reutter
https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=5549934

I went to the Stafford Baptist cemetery to look for your William Reutter. I found three stones with the name Reutter. Two small ones were for Minnie and Louise. One large stone only said Reutter. The cemetery lists 4 Reutters, Minnie and Louise spelled Reutter and Jo and William spelled Ruetter. I believe the online cemetery listing , compiled in 2001 is in error, and the name of all these folks is spelled Reutter. The large stone with only the name Reutter does not include any other information. There may have been smaller companion stones now sunk under, there may have been inscriptions now eroded away etc. There was damage to the large Reutter stone and it's been calked to preserve it. My hunch, by process of elimination, is the large Reutter stone is your William but I can't be sure. I did not claim the request, but if you want to assume the large Reutter stone is his, I'll claim and upload the picture. Also, the plot and row layout of this cemetery makes no sense. Everyone has a hard time finding anyone in this cemetery. Missing inscriptions make it impossible. Shirley in Oregon

RE: Connell Family
The book (manuscript) is currently with UNT Press, Denton, TX for review and hopefully publication. The title, unless changed is "Watering The Drags, W. E. Connell, Prince of cattle & Banking in West Texas." To be in print sometime next year.

RE: Photo color correction
Thank you. I only did this for the letters on the star. I found that tweeking the color that letters would come out better and us this now. Did you have a program to clean up the color photo or did you just use black and white? Thanks again.

RE: Photo transfer
Sorry about the delayed response we have not been active here for quite some time. I see you have merged the two. Anything else I can help with since I didn't get the picture done?

Connell Family
I have completed the book on W. E. Connell and family. The title is "Watering The Drags," W. E. Connell, Prince of Cattle and Banking." The manuscript is currently with a University Press for review. Will try to let eveyone (family) know when in print.

Thank you so very much for this transfer! Skip used to pick me up every Sunday for brunch and then we would go to the record store and I always got one record. Tons of chocolate too! When I became a professional musician, he never missed a show. He also brought all of the pies on every Thanksgiving. I miss him so. Thanks again, and Bless you!
