|Bio and Links|
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.
