Meeting Cousins

Posted on by 0 comment

I’m in Texarkana today. Gary and Bessie Higginbotham and I went to Louisiana today to meet some of our cousins on our Higginbotham side. We had a great visit. It’s always fun to meet cousins and hear stories about family that we haven’t heard before.

Thanks to Kookie for welcoming us into her home, and providing us with great snacks and a wonderful lunch. We were happy to meet Cheri and and enjoyed getting to know them today! This is the fun part of doing genealogy!

Find Me Friday- Unidentified Photos

Posted on by 0 comment

This gentlemen could be a Williams, a Higginbotham, a Martin or even a family friend.  He feels like he’s familia.  You tell me!  Do you recognize him?

This photo is from the same collection as the photo above, so they could be Martin’s, Williams’, or Higginbotham’s, or any extensions of those families.  Anyone recognize that house?

I originally thought this was the family of Thomas C. Martin, but they have been eliminated.  I now just think they are MARTIN’S, but I have no clue which ones.  Anyone recognize any of them?

If you have an unidentified photo that you would like me to showcase, feel free to email it to me.  It does work, I have had photo’s identified and it is very exciting.

Thank you to Allen Webb for identifying this photo of my 3rd great-grandmother, Sarah “Sallie” Ann Courtney, who married my 3rd great-grandfather, Henry Washington Martin, and then later married George Pill after Wash Martin passed away.

 

I guess posting these unidentified photo’s really is worth it.   So exciting!!

Look for more coming up soon.
