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!

Permission to use photos

First I want to thank you for your time and effort in taking and uploading photos to the website. I would like to ask your permission to save the photos to my computer system that you took for for my personal genealogy research and posting to my family tree online. I will give credit to your work. Will you permit me to do that?

I really appreciate this,

Tia Rutledge

RE: Riobert O'Hair Memorial ##40750484
Hello Richard and Brenda, I would be glad to combine memorials for Robert. I added parental link information, corrected place of death info that I had, copied the obituary that the other contributor had on their memorial giving them credit for the info and stating that I was combining two memorials. They had flowers entered for him on their memorial while I had pic. I don't know how you transfer flowers. Only way I know to combine memorials. Ideas? Thanks.

RE: William Franklin Maples #39694617
Greatly sorry for my stupidity, you are dead on it but someone had tied my Maples of which his parents & brother/sister were all born in North Al. and your Maples was born in Texas. I contacted them and it is correct now. Have a blessed 2016.

Paschall Cemetery, Llano Co., TX

I am a descendant of Sarah Jeffrey Wood and have been looking for the graves of Margaret Jeffrey and her father, Albert G. May for a long time. The May and Jeffrey families owned land very close to this cemetery and it would make sense they would be buried there especially since Margaret's son Archibald Loftis) by her first husband is buried there. I tried to locate the cemetery this week but was only able to find the general location. Since it is on private property, could you please give me the contact information for the land owner and directions to the cemetery? I would really love to visit it.

Thank you!

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.

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.
