Please note that there are some errors on Mary E. Nunez Patterson O'Brien Bio information. Her father was Drury Peyton "Jim" Patterson. the information on how he died is correct. Please note he often help John Wesley Harding with legal issues (i.e. Bail money, etc.). There are mixed story on who really kill him.
Her name passed down thru the Patterson family history was Mary Eliphe Patterson born 10/4/1866. Although the name Elizabeth is common in the Patterson family history and maybe correct.
The Grave stone is incorrect. Please note the death of her mother verse the birth date on the headstone.
Her grandparents were Thomas Lackey Samson (1818-1905) & Mary Renegar Samson (1818-1892).
She and her sister stayed with her father after he remarried to Celia Ann Sutton Patterson. After her father's death they often visited Celia in their youth.
She had 1 half brother = Robert Payton Patterson (my great grandfather) and 2 half sisters = Nancy & Tillie.
You may want to update her bio to reflect this info.
Nunez Perry Plantation Cemetery Can you give me directions to where this is located? Also, do you have any idea where their son, Martin, is buried? Are there only four grave sites at the Nunez Perry Plantation Cemetery? I will be in LA over Thanksgiving, and would like to visit this cemetery. Judy
John Hite Bowman & Mary P. Lawson Bowman Hello Mr. Jobes! I've emailed you but thought I would also let you know here that I've added photos to your Bowman memorials, as well as to the Gill & Rumsey burials at the Old Doc Rumsey Cemetery, as well as to the cemetery page. There are many more that I wasn't able to add to the memorials, so if you would like to see them please let me know. Take care, Karen
Bracht I came across the picture of the Bracht grave you have posted in Duesseldorf. Bracht's wife was a sister to my great great grand mother, Franziska v. Reinbach. My great grand father, Max Reinbach came to Texas in 1849 and lived with his cousin, Dr. Bracht. He returned to Germany and wrote many letters to his niece, Emma Muerck Altgelt. There are also letters from the v. Dorsten, who was Bracht's father in law, stating that v. Reinbach must prove himself to be on the same social status as the v. Dorsten family These letters are now in an archive at the University of Texas. Max returned to the US in 1871 with his mother's maid and married her in New Orleans. He then moved to San Antonio and then to Fredericksburg. I was born in Fredericksburg, learned English in school, and still prefer to speak German. My wife and I visit Germany several times a year and have visited St. Lamburtus, where the v. Dorsten family were members quite often. I must visit the grave in Dueseldorf. Of all the relatives of mine and my wife's, who lived and died in Germany, it is probably the only marked grave still standing.
I have a few questions on Joseph Aladin Nunez. I'm trying to confirm that he's my 4th great grand father. Adonis Nunez 1868-1938 which I have seen his name as Alexander Adonis Nunez is my 3rd great grandfather from Cameron, Louisiana. I'm trying to confirm that this is the son "e.g., Alex, Aleck, of Joseph Aladin Nunez. Are you related to Jospeh and have done a DNA test? I have my DNA on ancestry.com and Gedmatch.com kit# A877339. I've seen two different lines for Adonis Nunez on ancestry and I'm trying to confirm which is correct.
My 3rd great grand father's find a grave page, which I believe is Joseph's son.
