Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Pharmacist; I have been married 43 years and have 4 beautiful children. My wife and I look forward to traveling, antiquing and spending time with our families. I have lived in Tyler, Tx since 1952; originally from Hugo, Ok. Searching family history and going to cemeteries is a hobby my wife and I enjoy together.
Linking familes together from generation to generation is fascinating and challenging.
Remembering past generations seems to have become a lost art and helping others connect with their families is indeed a pleasure.
In addition to photo requests, I always try to take other pictures, especially those with same surnames as the requests. If these are not on FAG
I make a memorial for them.If any are your relatives I will gladly transfer them to you.

Hello. I saw your wife's Grandma last night. My neighbor and I were going to a church meeting in Independence.

Grandma gave us some coat hangers she made. Happy Sunday

RE: Infant Weeks
Thanks. From the 1900 U.S. Census, I learned that Lena had been married in 1896 and had a child that year. In 1900, she had been the mother of two children, but only one was living at that time.

Therefore, I am guessing that Infant Weeks was born abt 1898 and died bef 1 Jun 1900.

I will keep working on the gender. I think someone gave me a phone number for a Genealogical Society in that area.

Does Ms. Agnes still live in the same house? Best wishes

Infant Weeks
Hello. Is Infant Weeks buried beside James Monroe Weeks and Lena SCOTT Weeks? I am trying to determine whether he is their infant.

I also wish to learn the gender of the infant, which can be determined by using dowling rods made out of wire coat hangers. Would you be interested in learning that for me? I have dowling rod instructions that I can email you.

I would also like to find a burial date since no dates are on the headstone. I am in Kansas City, Missouri. I cannot find any info or phone numbers on the internet to help me learn more about this infant. Do you have any suggestions?

Bless you for all you do.

RE: Hickman family in Baxter county
Hi, Ira Thomas is my great great grandfather. He married Lizzie Fouts (Elizabeth) and Sarah is one of his sisters. I have been researching this part of my family and have found photos of them. Is your wife on ancestry,com ? If you give me your email, I can invite you to view my family tree. Amazing to think your wife is a distant relative of mine. They did indeed ice fri. Missouri and Baxter county.

Thank you for contacting me.
