Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Alvin, Texas and stay busy working on my genealogy and adding to Find A Grave when not busy with other activities.

I am researching Clark, Johnson, Johnston, Schwartz, Zuspann, Eckles, Echols, Miller, Doxey, Trammell, Tedford, Gibson/Gipson, Baugh, Floyd, Shirley, Powell, Farrell, Matlock, Kersey, Mace, Bjork, Johanesson, Magnusson, Andersson, Jarsvall, Porter, and Black, with Sullins, Laredo, Munoz, Balderas, Villareal added as well.

My interest in adding memorials is to have everyone recognized and have a place for family and friends to come to, even if they live a long way from the real cemetery. Because I am a genealogist, I put biographical or genealogical information on the memorial to help other researchers.

If you have info to add, you may email me or contact me via this website.

If you need me to transfer a memorial to you, just ask. In most instances I am happy to comply with your request.

Update on me....I am now on kidney dialysis and have very little time to do the things I love such as genealogy or maintaining data bases. I check my emails for correction requests and when I can, I will make the corrections. Please be patient. Barbara Trammell Black, 2015

Terry Echols
Virgil Lee "Virge" Eckles
I uploaded the death certificate. The informant was V. D. Eckles which I assume was his brother Valton Dward.

Get Well Soon.
Hi Barbara.
I had contacted you many years ago thinking that you were related through my Cousin Barbara Patterson. My mother had it confused.
Jesse O Eckles and Essie Sluder Eckles is my line:

The notes below discuss my Mother's Sister Dianne Christensen who posted in 2000. Dianne is one of four children of Ruthie Marie Eckles Turner, who is the daughter of Jesse and Essie Eckles, listed below.
I am Ruthie Marie Eckles Turner, Grand daughter. I have appreciated the work you have done by creating our family history. It is not an easy task, and I am so grateful that you took the time to leave it for the next generations.
I hope that you get well soon.
Thank you,

Lenora Bell
