I live in Spokane, Wash., but my father (James Beck Floyd)and his family lived in Texline before they moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1925. They had lived in Greer County, Oklahoma, before that, and I'm trying to gather as many details as I can about exact dates and what if any stops they made along the way. I have some interesting photos that show him as the captain of the 1924 Texline High School basketball team. Also one of the Floyd Garage that my grandfather owned there. Why they upped and left when they did, I don't know. Dad had a younger brother and three younger sisters and they all headed for Oregon in 1925. Dad was working for the Fort Worth and Denver RR at the time and he stayed around, possibly to tie up some family loose ends, until 1926. My grandmother was a Beck and had quite a bit of family in the area, including in the Oklahoma panhandle. I'd be obliged to anyone who has information to share or resources to recommend.

Hey I'm new and was wondring if any one out there has any information about Hazelmere school I went there in the 1950's. I know in was still running in about 1980 with just 1 or or 2 students. It was a small school located at Rodgers Bar how ever I think there was one more school called Hazelmere that was located west of ther just above the old Brooks place at Nine Mile. My mother and her sibblings went to.The Jerred children.

It was destroyed by the raging Volga River in 1999. Only one home remains on the flood plain with several homes on the surronding hills. Hope Lutheran Church was moved to top of the town hill. It sits in a wonderful new location with great views of the valley. The town of Littleport has since been turned into a public park. The park has facilities for picnics and camping, etc..

I was born in Littleport in 1918 and it was a wonderful place in which to grow up.

How old is the Hackberry school,and is it still being used?
- ripy2
I and my two cousins worked at the Plaza Hotel back in the 40's and have a lot of memories about the old town. I graduated in 1948. I started in the Auto Parts business at J. Burdman Auto by the old Central High during 7th grade. The hangout during high school was Meeker's on Main St. It's sad to see how Trenton has gone down hill so to speak, seems like when the Rock Island left so did everything else. Werner Robertson

In my biased opinion, having grown up right next door in Far North Dallas, Richardson is the Dallas area's best suburb.
It's close to downtown, so commute times to Dallas down the toll-less Central Expressway aren't bad. Or, if you'd rather relax and read the paper on your commute, you can take DART's light rail. Of all the suburbs served by the system, Richardson has the most stops, four.
In only the past two decades, UTD has exploded and now serves 15,000 area college students. Its students' SAT test scores are actually highter than those of students at the University of Texas at Austin.
The school district is good, diverse too. Housing is still cheap. There are manks parks and a growing bike trail system.
In general, Richardson is a lot less stuffy than other Dallas suburbs.

Hi, I was visiting a few weeks ago and had the most wonderful experiance and found the most helpful people in Fort Gay. As I came across the Louisa, KY bridge there was a gas station right there at the end of the tracks. I wished I had gotten the name of the place I do remember then young man who helped me his name was Charlie. He was so helpful and nice. I would like to write to that gas station/party store? I believe it was a BP but not forsure. Could anyone help me in getting that name of the address and phone # of the store and maybe the last name of the young man. I was told they thought they young man's name was Charlie Pigg. He was so helpful I would like his company to know what an wonderful employee they have.

Thank you

Pioneer heights is the worst place to purchase a house. We bought our house in Aug. of 2006 and did not realise that most of the people here are renters who do not care of the fellow neighbor. There are cars all over the streets and children unsupervised by parents. Cars and trucks racing all up and down the roads and putting childrens lives in danger here. The yards are unkept and the landlords do not care on who moves in here. Many reports have been filed on one family for exessive speed and vehicle noise and nothing has been done about it. So if you are thinking this a nice neighborhood because the houses look nice and the prices are cheap, do not be fooled as we were.

On the main page of the Rouses Point website - link is - there is a lovely house with a beautiful wrap around porch. I asked about it in Email and understand the photo was taken in 1923!

I would really appreciate it if someone could give a bit of history about the old house. And if it's still standing, what it's used for now. Was it ever a B&B? Lake view? Private beach? Anything!

I was last there in the early 1960s! Don't remember the house, but we were usually in a hurry to get to Burlington or Plattsburg from Montreal where I lived at the time.

now on the other coast, near San Francisco

I have never been to Medina, but I have discovered that I have a relative who was born in Medina on Dec 17, 1842. His name was George W. Bradford. He died in 1919 in Easton Twp, Ionia County, Michigan. His father was James Madison Bradford and his mother was Jane Anne Flagler. George's older brothers and sisters were all born in Canton or Plymouth Twp. His younger brother William P. Bradford was born in Easton Twp. in 1845. The family was apparently migrating from Canton/Plymouth to Easton, and took a detour to Medina where George was born. It seems to be quite out of the way (no offense intended). I am wondering if maybe they owned property in Medina and went there to sell it.

My question: Do any of the genealogists out there have a record of the history of Medina in the 1840's?

Please send me a message at:

January 2007

This year entered very quietly to this tiny little town as we had very little snow, in fact, none except on snow making trails on Belleayre Mountain. Our tourist town needs skiers to tide us thru the entire year for our taxes, insurance etc.
This has been the warmest weather I have ever seen in my 50 years here.
This week there is a Winterfest that Belleayre Mt. created for our small towns. Tonight is the wonderful "Taste of the Town". All of the great restaurants contribute food for this wonderful event with music and dancing on the mountain. Pine Hill will have tomorrow night at the community center to show our stuff, more tomorrow night about that one.

Lots of good people and a down home atmosphere that you don't neccesarily get in the big city. It is a great place to grow up and get into a "little" trouble without getting into "real" trouble. The train that went through is now gone. the Soo Line grade. It was fun to grow up with that in the area. I made many forts with my brother and friends along the railroad tracks. Think of the movie "Stand By Me" and that is what Holdingford was like to me growing up. I miss that time and that place...but I guess we can only be young once.

Hilltown families enjoy a cozy winter?s day in Historic Deerfield

[Deerfield - 01/20/07] On Saturday Historic Deerfield in Deerfield, MA, hosted A Cozy Winter Day at their Hall Tavern. Many hilltown families gathered together to experience some of the rich history of early New England. The day?s presentations included a hands-on approach to illustrate the homestead activities in which early settlers may have participated, such as sewing, cooking, storytelling or singing songs. Families passed the blustery winter afternoon as early New Englanders did.

If you ever visit Springboro you must stop at The Brass Pig for lunch. It's located in one of the most historic buildings in the town and is over 150 years old. The lunch choices were great and the desserts were worth the extra calories. After lunch you can shop at Victoria's Gifts, a very unique gift shop also in the building, which carries Pandora Jewelry, SheBeads, and a bunch of other lines that make the trip worthwhile. You have to try the beef hot shot, pulled pork and don't forget the chocolate candy cake and homemade bread pudding. The prices are right and the atmosphere was wonderful. Highly recommend you stop in for lunch.

Hi Parents of the Magic City,

I hope your staying warm and safe in this cold icy snow weather but good news it's going to start to get in the 40's estimation around this coming thursday so hopefully we won't have to worry of falling down .

Anyways, a new playgroup just started so come have a look to see if this is of any interest to you !

Hey we should get more restaurants like TGIF Fridays, Sonic , Ruby Tuesday .

Would you think we should have used the money to donate to the Help for Homeless Animals because they are a non profit organization and animals are so sick there with issues that they can't afford that would have been better use than to try to renew the baseball field.

So if you want to have a great place to eat Montana Jacks, Golden Corral, Johnny Carinos, and don luis . Yummy stuff.

Shame on Pinal County.
So dance has become ILLEGAL, and worthy of a fine of $5,000 a day if someone DANCES. What foolishness is this?
I wonder who defines dancing? Can one person dance legally, or must there be two dancing together? If walking across the floor, one trips and does some fancy footwork to avoid falling, would this be considered "dancing?" Is the County so strapped for cash they are looking for ways to fill the coffers, or is this some personal vendetta?

Long Beach is a great community in Southern California and is jewel. For a beach community, it is not as expensive as other beach cities. If you want to purchase a spacious old historic spanish style home without the hefty pricetag, the Wrigley area of Long Beach is a great secret. If you don't mind living in an urban neighborhood that is in transition of gaining a ton of professional yuppies and gen-x'ers buy now and you will certainly realize tremendous appreciation in the years to come. Even purchasing in 2005 when the market was softening, I gained $80k in appreciation from an appraisal in just 1 year.

I mean there are those people who think they are all cool and stuff because they have lots of money and don't have to work to make a living, and those are the kind of people I can not stand. But there are only a handful here in FayCo. Anyways, FayCo is a cool place. I like it too because it is small and isn't all busy, it's calm and cool. OMG FAYETTE COUNTY IS MADE UP OF SO MANY POLITICS THOUGH. Our fair, thats all it is, is cheating, lying, and scamming. I am sick of it. I have taken animals since the 3rd grade and it has always been like that. I don't know why though, because people are just bringing the number of buyers at our fair down down down. And sooner or later, the FayCo fair is just going to be like a ghost thing, because of all of this. I'm so glad I only have 2 more years. ----All for now, will blog later----

I've lived in Cedar Rapids for a long time. Nice community... good place to raise kids... fairly stable economy.

The "downtown" folks can be pretty annoying at times but you learn to ignore them for the most part. I mean, heck, they pretty much run the city the way they want and don't listen to anyone anyway.

I like to jab them a little from time to time at my blog...

Munch was named for the Prussian brothers Adolph, Emil, and Paul Munch in 1906. I've added this information to our Munch profile, below.

I am looking for information about the Munch family. I am a descendant of Emil Munch, the former State Treasurer. Was this township named for the Munch brothers--Adolph and Emil --who came to the US from Prussia in the mid 1800s? My Grandfather, Alfred Emil Munch, Jr., was born in St Paul. My email address is:

There doesn't seem to be anywhere on the WWW for part and fulltime residents of Idyllwild to connect.

This is especially difficult in wintertime when people down the Hill (like me) need information about what's going on up the Hill in real time.

My cabin is on a street that isn't plowed, for instance. It would be helpful to know about how much snow is on the ground before we arrived, so we can prepare accordingly.

Anyone else out there interested in making this "The Idy Spot" for online networking?

I had several cousins in the Clifton and Potts family that I used to visit in the 1950's and 60's and even in the 70's. I am the son of Rachel Lorraine Hawkins Jaynes. I have several memories of Rose my mothers double cousin. I remember the house and the house my great uncle helped build in Emory with my Dad in late 1950's. My name is Douglas E. Jaynes and I was wondering if someone who knew me is still alive in Emory. My email is p.s. I remember my aunt Brew also.

Go take your shoes off, get a cool refreshing drink, let your hair down, sit back down and plan to stay awhile. Under my desk I keep a bucket of cool damp beach sand to put my feet in. lol

I was born and raised in Ft. Meade, Florida and I have always been a Florida Flirt (& a Florida Cracker.) I moved to Virginia about 18 years ago but Florida will always be home.

Ft Meade brings back some really good memories.

Sand... The taste of sweet oranges so juicy the juice would run down your chin, guavas, tangerines, persimmons... watch out for the green ones, loquats, cumquats, fresh berries watermellons,and of course green and boiled peanuts. My Dad was the King of peanuts. He could grow & boil peanuts better than anyone. The sand...

The Ft. Meade pits. At one time it was crysatal clear and a safe place to swim. I took swim lessons there and hung out there during the summer.

Check out my blog at:

Sports: I keep up with some football (college: Gators and pro: Jax Jags) and Ft. Meade has had some good football players. The ones I've been reading about lately...

Jemalle Cornelius
The University of Florida football team had a 41-14 victory over Ohio State in the Tostitos BCS National Championship Game, earning the Gators their second-ever national football championship. Ft. Meade's very own Jemalle Cornelius (Senior...University of Florida) chipped in with five catches for 49 yards.

Jesus Cortez
Bethune-Cookman College senior kicker Jesus Cortez (Fort Meade) is etching his name in the school's record books. Single-season points from a kicker. Ranking: 1st Single-game PAT's. Ranking: 1st Career PAT's. Ranking: Tied for 1st Most field goals in a season. Ranking: 2nd Most career field goals. Ranking: 3rd Career points kicker. Ranking: 3rd

Yes, Ft. Meade brings back good memories. You can take the grl out of her home town but the home town stays with the grl.

Looking for the Casperson family plot either in Frederic, Luck or Atlas Cemeteries. I believe there might be a small church located there too.

Have pictures of Frederic around 1917, an old church, farmhouses, barns and people.

My great uncle was a Senator for Wisconsin and his name was John Casperson. I have a picture of the raised tombstone....with inscription "How Many Hopes Lie Buried Here...... The picture was taken in July of 1992 and looks as if it is situated near a large group of tall trees or is at the corner end of the cemetery. During the summer months it appears to have very bright colored flowers planted next to the tombstone and appear to be pink or red. There is also a potted planter at the base of the tombstone.

Does anyone know where the family plot is? We live in Alaska and hope to return to the Wisconsin/Minnesota area soon.

I am doing genealogy on my husband's side of the family. Story has it that my father-in-law was abandoned in 1919 in a hotel room and found by a sheriff and taken to an orphanage, I am not sure if the orphanage is around Mars Hill or not. It has always bothered my father-in-law that he did not know his parents and that he was left in a hotel in Mars Hill I did find out that there was a fire in 1922 that destroyed a lot of Main Street but I can't find out anything else. Is there anyone in Mars Hill that can help, Or is there a newspaper report about an abandoned baby boy around that time?
Would appreciate the help

I have lived in the Linnville area most of my life. This area is very scenic and quiet. Many families in this area have ties to families that came to this area of Ohio on the National Road back in the 1800's.
