We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.

Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time,
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.
Lord, help me trace the ancient roads
On which my father’s trod,
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.
Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript,
That’s safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.
Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul when I can’t find,
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.

DEAR ANCESTOR
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
Author Unknown
*************************************
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds –
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we’d all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

My Maternal German Eleventh Great Grandfather -Johannes Linderman, Sr.

My Maternal Eleventh Great Grandfather -Johannes Lindemann, Sr.
Born: 1380 in Eisenach, Thuringen, Deutschland.

Died: before 1480 in Eisenach, Thuringia, Germany.

Married: about 1420 in Eisenach, Thuringia, Germany to unknown.

Child: Johannes Lindemann, Jr. 

Eisenach, Town in Germany. Eisenach is a town in Thuringia, Germany with 42,000 inhabitants, located 50 kilometres west of Erfurt, 70 km southeast of Kassel and 150 km northeast of Frankfurt. Wikipedia

Eisenach, Thuringen, Germany, in 1647

The confident citizens of Eisenach fought against the Wettin’s rule to become a free imperial city between 1306 and 1308, but lost. In the 14th century various crises followed: in 1342, a big fire destroyed nearly all the buildings and the Black Death killed many inhabitants in 1349 and 1393. Since 1406, Eisenach was no longer a Wettin residence, which led to a decline in urban development.

Glamorgan (/ɡləˈmɔːrɡən/) or, sometimes, Glamorganshire (Welsh: Morgannwg [mɔrˈɡanʊɡ] or Sir Forgannwg [ˈsiːr vɔrˈɡanʊɡ]) is one of the thirteen historic counties of Wales and a former administrative county of Wales. It was originally an early medieval petty kingdom of varying boundaries known as Glywysing until taken over by the Normans as a lordship. Glamorgan is latterly represented by the three preserved counties of Mid Glamorgan, South Glamorgan and West Glamorgan. The name also survives in that of Vale of Glamorgan, a county borough.Although initially a rural and pastoral area of little value, the area that became known as Glamorgan was a conflict point between the Norman lords and the Welsh princes, with the area being defined by a large concentration of castles. After falling under English rule in the 16th century, Glamorgan became a more stable county, and exploited its natural resources to become an important part of the Industrial Revolution. Glamorgan was the most populous and industrialised county in Wales, and was once called the “crucible of the Industrial Revolution,” as it contained the world centres of three metallurgical industries and its rich resources of coal.

Mary May <i>Haupert</i> Palen

Thanks to Leonard Greenwood, I now have a photo of Leopold & Mary Palen’s headstone. Thanks so much, Leonard.

“Today (August 21, 2012), my Mom, Virginia (Palen) Long, became the longest-living Palen in the family tree. She surpassed May “Mary” Haupert Palen by one day today. My Mom actually knew May, her Great Grandmother. May used to have Mom sit at her feet and tell her stories about riding a covered wagon all the way to Caledonia, Minnesota. She also told her how the Indians sometimes would ride into town and scare the women. May, who was quite brave, helped care for the squaws and their babies. Its remarkable that Mom knew someone who was born in 1844! Mom’s memory is very short these days, but she’s outstanding when she reminisces about things that happened in her childhood!”

Death:  Mar. 26, 1977
Houston
Harris County
Texas, USA

My paternal grandmother. Family and friends knew her as Bessie. Hard working Moravian, Catholic, wife of Charlie F. “Karel Fredrick” Frederick. Obtained marriage license in Georgetown, Williamson County, Texas, and Bessie and Charlie married on 12 October 1914, in Granger, Williamson County, Texas. She graduated from Granger High School in 1913. She worked in the cafeteria for Crosby I.S.D. in the 1950’s. 

She was a faithful member of the SS. Cyril & Methodius Catholic Church, in Granger, Williamson County, TX; and the Sacred Heart Catholic Church, in Crosby, Harris, Texas.

My Grandmother honored her Moravian heritage. Her parents emigrated from Moravia in August 1892 to Galveston, Galveston County, Texas.

Bessie & Charlie were hard working Moravian farmers. They moved to Sheldon, Harris County, Texas before 1926, when my Daddy, Leroy Eugene Frederick, was born in Crosby, Harris County, Texas. Daddy taught me how to polka.

Emma, Bessie, and Joe Mazac, boyfriend of Bessie (on left) Anton Janacek, Granger, Williamson County, Texas, c. 1918.

My poor grandma had a very hard life. Grandma loved her children and grandchildren. She raised her five living children by herself after grandpa Charlie passed away in 1947 from stomach cancer. She lost a child, Jerome Frederick, in 1919 in Granger, Williamson County, Texas. She raised Woodie and Charles all their lives. She told me that they were in a car accident, and that they were never the same again. Charles would not talk at all for years, then when he did start talking grandma wanted him to shut up.

She tended almost an acre of land with her garden, and the boys always worked right alongside her. She had a green thumb. She had all kinds of good vegetables and strawberries too! She canned and put up jelly.

Bessie loved music and dancing. Grandma Frederick always had the best kolaches and soda pop for her Grand-kids, when they visited. She was a great cook! I loved to climb her trees and pick strawberries out of her garden, that she and the boys (Charles & Woodrow) Frederick helped her tend. Daughter of Jan “John” & Annie Marie “Mary” (Dudika) Mazac of Granger, Texas.

Resided in Taylor, Williamson County, Texas in 1920, according to the U.S. Census for Williamson County, Texas.

Children: Agnes “Renie” Rainie (Christ), Leroy Eugene, Juanita “Punkin” Elizabeth (Christ), Woodrow “Woodie”, and Charles “Chas” Frederick.

She raised the children by herself after 1947, when Grandpa Charlie died of Stomach Cancer.

Grandma Bessie worked for the Crosby ISD in the cafeteria for years. Everyone loved her. Died of hardening of the arteries and Diabetes.

Grandma Bessie liked pink. She told my mother and me that she liked artificial flowers because they didn’t die. And, she made my mother promise her, that when she died, mother would make sure that all her grandchildren came to her funeral. Of course, we all did. Having flowers at her families gravesides was important to her.

I volunteered to sponsor the online Sacred Heart Catholic Cemetery to honor her. Grandma Bessie & Grandpa Charlie and Uncle Woodie, Uncle Charles, and Aunt Rainie are all laid to rest there.

Grandma Bessie even as poor as she was, always made sure that all nine (9) of her Grandchildren got something for Christmas.

FAMILY ROOTS RUN DEEP!

tree_with_roots_in_lake1.jpg

I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY GENEALOGY SINCE 1987, WHEN I TOOK TEXAS HISTORY AT THE SAN JACINTO JR. COLLEGE.

I HAD TO WRITE A RESEARCH PAPER, AND I CHOSE TO WRITE IT ABOUT MY FAMILY, BUT 1994 IS WHEN I REALLY STARTED WORKING DILIGENTLY ON MY GENEALOGY. THAT IS THE YEAR MY MOTHER, JEAN MARIE LINDERMAN MANCILL, AND MY STEP DAD, LOUIS CLIFFORD MANCILL, HELPED ME TO GET MY FIRST COMPUTER. NOW, I’M ADDICTED!!!

MY OLDEST BROTHER, JOSEPH LEE FREDERICK, REBUILT COMPUTERS AND SO HE PUT US ONE TOGETHER. MOTHER AND LOU EVEN HAD THEIR OWN COMPUTER. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT A 67 YEAR OLD WOMAN, AND A 70 YEAR OLD MAN USING A COMPUTER!!!

MY DREAM WAS ALWAYS TO BE AN AUTHOR, LIKE LOUISA MAE ALCOTT, AND I PLANNED TO WRITE A BOOK SOMEDAY. I HAVE WRITTEN SEVERAL POEMS AND STORIES. FOR A LONG TIME I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT I WANTED TO WRITE. MY DAD, HAD ASKED ME, ” WHY DO YOU DO ALL THIS WORK? NO ONE WILL EVER READ IT!”

FOR AWHILE THAT KEPT ME FROM WRITING ANYMORE, BUT THEN I DECIDED THAT THERE HAD TO BE SOMEONE IN OUR FAMILY WHO WOULD ONE DAY BE INTERESTED TO KNOW OUR FAMILY HISTORY, AND EVEN IF NOT, THEN MAYBE SOMEONE YEARS FROM NOW WILL BE INTERESTED IN LEARNING HOW WE LIVED. WHEN I FINISH THE FINAL DRAFT OF MY FAMILY STORY I PLAN TO DONATE A COPY OF IT TO THE GEORGE MEMORIAL LIBRARY, IN RICHMOND, TEXAS, AND ALSO, A COPY TO THE CLAYTON GENEALOGICAL LIBRARY, IN HOUSTON, TEXAS.

I THINK THAT I AM GOING TO WRITE FIRST ABOUT THE STRONG, DOMINANT WOMEN IN MY FAMILY, I HAVE WRITTEN SOME ABOUT THEM, BUT I PLAN TO WRITE MORE AS I GET THE TIME.
MY MOTHER, JEAN MARIE LINDERMAN FREDERICK MANCILL, WOULD BE THE FIRST ON MY LIST.
MY GRANDMOTHERS, BESSIE MAZAC FREDERICK, OR PHYLIS PALEN LINDERMAN.
OUR NEIGHBOR, DOROTHY WILLIAMS JOHNSON.
MY SPONSOR BIRDIE MAE NEFF.
MY GREAT AUNT GLADYS LINDERMAN NELSON.
MY AUNT YVONNE LINDERMAN BURGESS LEVESQUE.
——ROOTS——-
EACH OF US HAS ROOTS AND THE ABILITY TO TRACE THESE ROOTS, TO IDENTIFY OUR ANCESTORS. THE HIGHEST AND MOST POWERFUL MOTIVATION IN DOING THAT IS NOT FOR OURSELVES ONLY, BUT FOR OUR POSTERITY, FOR THE POSTERITY OF ALL MANKIND. AS SOMEONE ONCE OBSERVED,
“THERE ARE ONLY TWO LASTING BEQUESTS WE CAN GIVE OUR CHILDREN–ONE IS ROOTS, THE OTHER WINGS!!”
