Bio and Links
Bio Photo I try to leave a Purple and Green flower on every one of my family memorials, not just the ones I maintain, but everyone. I think it is important.
I am currently in and around Fort Worth, Texas locating documents on my 2nd & 3rd great grandfathers on my dad's Funderburg family. My goals now are to further document my Texas ancestors. On my dad's side I have researched the names from the von der Burg lines These include:Funderburg/Funderburk, McCarty(I believe this could also involve McCarthy/MacCarthy, McCarthey), Finn, Foreman, Oden, Pace, Smith, Ramsey, Mosier, Landreth, Nabors, Langley, Littrell, McWhorter/McWater, Sullivan, Roberts, Pyle, White, Dobbs, Dye, Aderholt, Barnes, Schoolcraft, Ellison and still working on some of the older Funderburg ancestors by collecting documents. I have one book by Guy B Funderburk and one by Alvin K Funderurg.
My mother's families are Hudson, McGough, Willis, Goyne, Acree, Seale, White, Taylor, Murray, Ward, Fowler, Scarbourough. I met online with Tim Hudson and found out he and I share about 4 to 5 family lines and he was kind enough to share his research with me and I am so grateful to him.
Both my brother & I have taken a DNA tests.
I have walked on the land of my great grandfather, William Henry Funderburg and his brother's David & Ben and felt their presents. We have gone to Desdemona, Texas for a look at the ghost town of "Hogtown" as it was called before the oil boom. Desdemona, a peaceful little village on the banks of Hog Creek, a tributary of Leon River, near the eastern line of Eastland county, was settled by C. C. Blair in 1860, and in 1871, land was pre-empted by Benjamin and William Funderburg and I have obtained the land records of these two men. I have met the grandson of the man who later purchased the Funderburg land when they sold and moved on. DESDEMONA CEMETERY, is on land donated by the Jones Family for a "public graveyard" in 1880. The Jones bought David W. Funderburg's pre-empted land survey and deeded one acre for the cemetery. No Funderburg's are buried here.
I have gone to the courthouse in Palo Pinto, Texas and got the Funderburg marriage documents. Among these are the Schoolcraft family who married into my family in the 1860's & 1870's. I have been to Breckenridge.
I am currently tracing my Grandmother's Smith Families and have met with a descendant of David H Smith and Mollie Elizabeth who are in the Stony Community in Denton County.
Since coming to Texas I have become a Find A Grave photo volunteer in Wise County and now Parker County and I enjoy it.
Researching my family has been the best thing I have done for myself. I love documenting my ancestors. There is a sense of pride in knowing the life each of my ancestors lived. Had they not lived the life they lived, I would have not been born.

Hi Trish,

My name is Nancy Littrell, I'm working on the Littrell's genealogy and have been trying to locate the burial location of Parazade Littrell, wife of Joseph Gerome "Joe" Littrell and parents of Alcy Jane Littrell Funderburg. Would you have any information about her burial location? Thanks, Nancy
