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 a twelve 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 are currently fighting the battle, celebrate survivors, and honor the memory of those who are no longer with us.
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.
I became a member of The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution Lucretia Council Cochran Chapter in Arlington, TX on October 6, 2012. My gggg grandfather, Samuel R. Reynolds #A095841 served four tours in the Revolutionary War. The first beginning March 16, 1780 in Spartanburg Dist SC, under Capt. Benjamin Kilgore. He served three other tours under the following officers: Capt. Nesbit, Col. William Fair, Lt. Cliff Casey, Maj. John Ford and William Blossingame.
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. Contact me for any corrections or transfers.
Thanks for his burial location. I'm actually going to delete my memorial since there's another one that names the cemetery. Would you transfer your pictures over to the other one #146760931. Once you've done that I'll delete mine.
RE: Martini Family Hi Linda! I'm so sorry, but I was unable to find an obituary for Eraldo in either the Niles papers or the Tribune, which would more than likely have burial information. He is most likely buried in St. Mary's since his parents are there. I'll let you know if I come across any information!
RE: Nancy Sheffield Transfer - #133833337 I trust that you'll take good care of the memorial. My adopted daughter's great grandmother is buried there (133603358). I met one of my daughter's cousins on FindAGrave and she said my daughter is related to everyone in the cemetery by blood or marriage, plus, related to everyone currently living on Mt Moriah Rd. I found a list of transcribed grave markers online and set up a bunch of memorials for the cemetery. I visited the cemetery last year. It seems to be in the middle of nowhere once you get there on the gravel road but not very far from new subdivisions with McMansions
RE: Bolen G. Jimerson #155874072 Linda, I have added a photo of this man's burial stone. I am not certain what the edit was, that you submitted, but it might be the year-of-birth discrepancy. I would appreciate having your thoughts on this since I no longer have your requested edit information.
RE: Samuel M. Morris ancestor(s) Father of William Thomas Morris - William Jasper Morris (born 1820 in TN & died 1891 in MO, 3rd husband of Margaret Eddy). Your list of Samuel's sons: Thomas Jasper - was this the son born in 1809 and died in 1876? James Barksdale - born 1813 & died 1886 in TN. Samuel W. - was this the son born in 1815? William J. - father of William T. Morris. Also, another son, Francis Marion, born 1828 in TN.
Samuel M. Morris ancestor(s) I searching for the ancestor(s) of Samuel M. Morris (Find A Grave # 95654163). You note that he is your 5th gggrandfather. Samuel had a grandson, William Thomas Morris (1870-1926) buried in Oregon. Since I am a Morris, I am researching to see if my Morris ancestors can be linked to Samuel's ancestors. Do you have any info on Samuel's ancestors? Thanks. Chuck in Oregon
Thank you Thank you for the acknowledgment of the information I provided. I love having everyone properly linked to their family. I appreciate your efforts in everything you do to help make that happen.
