Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born at Travis AFB in Fairfield, California. My father was born in Iowa and my mother in Texas. I've now lived in both states. Currently in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I'm married with two grown sons and one granddaughter.

I'm an eleven year breast cancer survivor and volunteer through the American Cancer Society as a Reach to Recovery advocate. It is my hope through education and research there will someday be a cure for all cancers. Until then, I will continue to be a volunteer, support those who have been diagnosed, and honor survivors.

In November 2010 I retired. It was my mother-in-law who peaked my interest in genealogy. I'm currently seeking information for the Bahlmanns, Malzahns, Hagedorns and Bremers from Germany and Bremer/Chickasaw Counties in Iowa; Banks, Taylor, Jones, Reynolds, Fanning, Roberson and Elliott families from Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, South Carolina, and Hunt County Texas.

My interests are genealogy, photography, gardening, NASCAR, football (although I live in Cowboy country I'm still a die hard Viking fan), baseball, and traveling. The thing I enjoy most is spending time with my precious granddaughter. My favorite quote "Happiness is wanting what you have".

Please feel free to use any of the photos I've posted on my memorials. Contact me for any corrections or transfers.

RE: Old Center Cemetery in Shelby County, Texas

There is an Old Center Cemetery - use the above link. I have been there and I believe it is still in Shelby County rather than Panola.

Find A Grave Memorial# 123045946
Some time ago I told you that the correct spelling of the last name was Koppendreyer. I am told that I am wrong, it is Koppedryer (See Find A Grave Memorial# 125225960). The deceased was my great aunt and my Mother spelled the last name with the letter "n". The rest of the family spell it without the n. Thus I don't know who is right but suggest you go back to your earlier spelling "Koppedreyer.

Yes, her brother was Bud. Sorry, for the delayed response. I didn't even know I had a message until tonight.

Sarah Anne Miller post

My question is about your contribution on Sarah Miller. She is my great-grandmother (our daughter is named after her) and her daughter, Stella Mae is my father's mother. Are you related to the Millers, and thus to me? We have a Bowman geneology page..but am most interested at this point about Momma Miller. I have always been told she was part Cherokee..but can't be proven.

Hi Linda, you are so welcome. It took me a while to find it as well. I got lucky. Yes, this is an old cemetery and it takes awhile for them to clean it up. They finally mowed in Section 31 where they are so that's why I was able to find it. I however, love to go there, it is a challenge for me. Again, you're welcome and have a great Wednesday.
