Bio and Links
Bio Photo We have enjoyed dabbling in our family geneology for many years but have recently become seriously hooked (obsessed some might say) since our children are grown and we have gained an abundance of available "together" time!

My maternal grandmother researched many years before the internet came along as did my husband's aunt. I grew up visiting the family cemeteries and always anxious to hear the stories of the stones. Who? What? When? Where? It was during those times I learned the importance of remembrance, respect and preservation of the final resting places of those gone long before us.

During the past few years while searching for anything that would help piece together the puzzles we were ultimately led to numerous on-line resources to include FINDAGRAVE.COM - we are so appreciative to all of those involved in this awesome endeavor!

We encourage contact from all possible relations and welcome any family links, leads, additions or corrections to our input of information. We are researching the following surnames -

His surnames:
Gumbert - Watson - McGehee - Evers - Maples - West - Peacock - Carroll - Asmus (Assmus) - Eiffert - Cox - Levering - Maxwell
Wilder - West - Polk - Jeter - Poore - Carver - Edwards - Storey - Heine - Harris - Acuff - Solomon - Andrews - Johnson - Dement - Wilburn - Weeden - etc.

Her surnames:
Keisler - Crundwell - Webster - Sledge - Fitzgerald - Swann - Prince - Crouch - Franklow - Wade - Wilkinson - Capers - Wooten - Kent - Sims - Wilson - Mitchell - Overby - Grinstead - Holman - Preston - Bennett - Shannon - Mills - Montgomery - Baker - Hibbard - Broadwater - Adamson - Moore - Jarrell - etc.

Without this network of wonderful selfless people we would not have the opportunity to link to those who have the same desire in obtaining and honoring their family history and heritage. While traveling their own roads and paths many members are more than willing to take the time in assisting a perfect stranger's quest in arriving at similar destinations. We too hope to help in those pursuits while mapping our own courses!

Blessings to all who have given so many countless miles and hours from the heart! And happy hunting!

RE: Paschall Cemetery
ALL the credit goes to Jerry Crabtree & wife Cheryl. Jerry is my #1 volunteer for the Llano Co web pg and he goes on these little side adventures from time to time as well. And bless his heart he's still picking cactus thorns out of his hands I think! That cemetery needs a group or preservation society to come in a restore it. Comment was made that the County said they would oversee the care of it but apparently they never have. With it being on private property, normally in Texas, its up to the property owner and/or a cemetery association to care for it.

Starling Sims
Hi Brenda,
I saw where you had left a post concerning Starling Sims. I believe my Gx4 grandfather may be a brother of Starling. If you would like to compare notes my email address is on my profile.

Have a great day.

RE: Webster Family Memorials
My husband's aunt married James Thad Lowe and his mother was a Webster. Always nice to be in contact with family members from all sides of the Clan.

RE: Idella Wilson Webster & John Wilson
Yes we are. I've been trying to get her brother John (Jack) H Wilson connected too. However, Benjamin F. Kivett IV (#47755066) controls Find A Grave Memorial# 86708027. He hasn't made the connection yet.

RE: Mariah Willoughby Hicks 64489800
Regarding your question of how I came about the name of McGehee for Mariah Hicks the short answer is, I don't know. I was in correspondence at the time with Alvis Duncan Hicks' great grandson. I possibly obtained the info from him. I you would like to get more info from him, his name is Don Hicks. As of my last contact with him, 9/2011, his email was:
gunny31 (at) cox (dot) net.

Hope this info is helpful.

RE: Hibbard cousins
I have been in contact with Rhonda. I wish I knew more about my 2nd great grandmother (Loran's daughter, Mollie (Polly). She died in childbirth in 1879. Loran had lots of children, didn't he? Glad we found each other, cousin!

If your Charles Webster was in Charlotte, let me know if you want me to look for an obituary in the newspaper at the library.
