|Bio and Links|
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 Funderburg-Smith-Ramsey, Mosier-Landreth-Nabors-Langley, Littrell, McWhorter, Sullivan, Roberts, Pyle, White, Dobbs, Dye, Aderholt, Barnes, Schoolcraft 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. |
(mom's side)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.
I have walked 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 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 several of the Funderburg marriage documents.
Since coming to Texas I have become a Find A Grave photo volunteer in Wise 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.
We sold our last home and retired to motor home life.

I graduated AHHS in '71 with Joe Funderburg. Is he related to you? What a great guy he was!

I don't know if I have thanked you or not for the transfer. I have had a very ill husband for the last 21 days and haven't got around to even looking at my computer until 5 days ago. Anyway, I do thank you.
|Mary J Griswold||RE: Alfus Funderburg|
