    1. Re: TX-Cemeteries
    2. Hi! My name is Celia Castillo Roesser. Born in Crystal City, TX back in 1960. My mom wanted to claim us from Crystal City and had my sister and brother there, although we lived here in San Antonio. My grandmother was a nurse also which was a major comfort to my mom. Many aunts, uncles and cousins came from Crystal. I have an aunt now in California who was just down there looking at the headstones in the "Mexican-American" cemetary. She wrote a list of those members that she found, but she left back to California without leaving a copy. I looked in the internet hoping to find a cemetary list, but there was none. I found a list, but it was for the other "Anglo" cemetary. Do you know if there is a URL for the one I am looking for and what is its proper name? Also, I am a cubscout leader here in San Antonio. I just read the Boy Scouts and receive the Eagle Scout achievement or other service requirements by taking care of a cemetary by listing all the headstones, etc. Maybe someone out their in ZAVALA county can contact their local Boy Scout Troops and let them know the need of this service. Hope this helps! Celia Roesser San Antonio, TX alpine-air@juno.com 8/28/00 ________________________________________________________________ YOU'RE PAYING TOO MUCH FOR THE INTERNET!

    2. Donna
    3. Hello, I am proud to announce the creation of a new mail list called TX-Cemeteries. This list has the encouragement of Gerron S. Hite, Cemetery Preservation Coordinator in the History Programs Division of the Texas Historical Commission and he's excited at the opportunity to share his feelings about our cemetery preservation to a large group all at once Others that have been notified, Lee Campbell, Past Representative for the Texas State Genealogical Society {and my cousin} and her friend, Past President of the TSGS Wanda Donaldson. I've let all the following people know about the list and they may join from time to time. Yvonne Pickens, current President of the TSGS. Trey Holt, coordinator for the Texas GenWeb. Wyndell Taylor, creator of GA Cherokee County GenWeb page, {and my cousin}. <Smile> I just have a lot of cousins !!!! The main focus of this list will be to locate and catalogue our endangered cemeteries. Gerron Hite has obtained a new program to help us give our cemeteries "Historic Texas Cemetery Designation".

Currently I manage the mail list for VARoots, SC-Old Pendleton-District, and the Brand surname list. I am also experienced in the survey of large and small cemeteries. In addition to the topics above there will be discussions on how to preserve and restore old monuments with the help of a caretaker with over 25 years experience. To join the mail list simply send a message to TX-Cemeteries-L-request@rootsweb.com with only the word subscribe in the subject line and nothing else. If you prefer the Digest send a message to TX-Cemeteries-D-request@rootsweb.com with only the word subscribe in the subject line and nothing else.

    1. Lolupe (?) GUSSENHOUEN (?) with HALSEL
    2. Carol Johnson & Richard Greene
    3. Nope, I'm not making up these names! :-))) In 1910, Wilson and Penelope HALSEL had "Lolupe GUSSENHOUEN", age 27 F, and her two daughters, Irm age 4 and Ethel age 3 living with them in Uvalde City, Uvalde Co. The Soundex is very hard to read, but I think these are correctly transcribed as best I can. They are identified as Step-daughter and Grand-daughters respectively. But I think more likely they are relatives of Penelope Halsel. Before Uvalde, Wilson & Penelope had lived in Frio and Zavala Counties, so perhaps these folks may be from there also? Sure would be grateful for any information! Best regards from far-too-sunny-and-dry Northern California Carolyn Carter Johnson (mailto:rhunterg@ix.netcom.com)

    1. The Buffalo Barracks
    2. Clifford R. Williams
    3. To All Whom It May Concern: The purpose of this message is to inform all genealogists & researchers who subscribe to TEXAS Rootsweb Lists, of a very important web site that now has a searchable database of over 1,650 U.S. Regular Army soldiers who once served at the short-lived Buffalo Barracks, between 1835 and 1846. Many of these soldiers had fought in the Indian Wars in Florida and also the War with Mexican, and then the Civil War. It is without doubt that some of the descendants of these men are most likely in every county of the great state of Texas. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT: The 1840 Census of Buffalo, NY lists Colonel James M. Bankhead, of Virginia, and a total 'quantity' of 671 individuals, ranging in age from 1 to 60, as being under his command and/or responsibility. Unfortunately, the census does not list each of these barracks residents by name....only by 'quantity.' (ie. 426 males 20-30 yrs, or 34 females 20-30 yrs) HOWEVER, The Buffalo Barracks Historical Web Site has turned most of the 'quantities' into actual names. The list of these officers and soldiers (and some of their wifes and dependants...see the Barracks Notebook section) are available, free of any charge. The URL for this outstanding web site is: [ http://www.buffalonet.org/army ] There, you will discover the "Descriptive & Historical Register Data of Enlisted Soldiers in the U.S. Army," for those who served at this federal military post on the Niagara Frontier. Also available is a wealth of rare and interesting information pertaining to the Buffalo Barracks and it's unique historic value. I encourage everyone to take the time to visit this site. Perhaps you have an ancestor who once served there? Enjoy your visit, Cliff Williams 104740.372@compuserve.com buffalobarracks@hotbot.com

    1. Texas Landmark Project
    2. Frank Saffarrans
    3. Hello again, More on the new TXGenWeb Project: "Texas Landmarks and Vanished Communities." Answers to FAQ: What Is The Objective Of The Texas Landmark Project: The objective of the landmark and vanished communities web pages is to highlight and give focus to the geographical locations of historical landmarks and communities. The prime focus is the actual location on a map. The prime vehicle for accomplishing this is the US Census TIGER map System. Submitters should include a brief description of the feature and may also include a link to another web page for more detailed information. What is Texas Landmark Project Motto? "If grandpa talked or wrote about it then it should be listed in the Texas Landmarks and Vanished Communities Index." What Land Marks Should Be Included? River bends, Valleys, grist mills, cotton gins, river crossings, bridges ferries, battles, hangings, cemeteries, churches, schools, colleges, pioneer ranches and farms, communities, blacksmith shops, stage stands, forts, hills, mountains, homesteads, trading posts, oil camps, ice works, bottling works,etc,etc. This includes information on who various landmarks such as as valleys, rivers and creeks were named after. What Are Some Consideration Concerning Names Of Llandmarks? River bends and Crossings: The USGS map makers only have the option of placing one name for a feature on their map. They use what they deemed the most generally used name. Consider the names of river bends - we have a number of them in Hood County. Most of the bends went by several names in the 1880's. The names of prominent landowners were usually used but there usually were several prominent land owners in the bend, hence several names. The maps today name one Brazos river bend, Walters Bend but you will find historical documents that call it Chicken Gristle Bend as well as Chicken Bristle bend. Our local historian says "the feature names on maps are nothing but gossip and the map maker only talked to a few gossips." People on one side of the river called river crossings by one name where people on the other side gave it another name. Some river bends on USGS maps do not have a name at all but the locals have a name for it. We want to preserve all of these names. Naming variations are also common for other type features as well. To Whom Do These TxGenWeb Texas Landmark Project County Web Pages Belong.?? They belong to the TxGenWeb county coordinator and other county researchers, Genealogical and Historical organizations who submit landmark data. The Moderator, Wayne Moyers and General Administrator, Frank Saffarrans are the caretakers with the main task of providing continuity. What Do You Mean By "Belongs To"? Each landmark submitted is "branded" in the submitters column with the name and address of the individual or organization that submitted the data. In a sense if you "brand" it then it belongs to you and therefore you "own" a piece of Texas. Remember Maverick? - Or is it like the homestead law? This "branded" business is just a game to give credit to those deserving people and organizations that submit data. You may find your county listed in the Landmark & Vanished Communities Index at: http://www.hcnews.com/~landmark. TxGenWeb County Coordinators, Genealogical Societies, Historical Societies and individual researchers are encouraged to submit landmark data on those places they are familiar with. With your help the Texas landmark Page will soon be a valuable Texas data source for genealogical and historical researchers world wide. How to Submit data: Do you have some landmark information but don't remember how to use latitude and longitude or don't remember how to determine Latitude and longitude? Check out our Map Blast Instructions at: http://www.hcnews.com/~landmark/mapblast.htm Or Tiger Map Service at: http://www.hcnews.com/~landmark/tiger.htm What is coming up next? We will be adding a web page where you may post queries on Vanished Communities and Landmarks. If you have a landmark with an unknown location you may post a query here and maybe someone will see it and give us the correct location. To those organizations and individuals who are presently submitting landmark data - WE THANK YOU, Keep up the good work!!!.

    1. Zavala County: Texas Landmarks and Vanished Communities
    2. Frank Saffarrans
    3. Tom Graham, Zavala County Coordinator Zavala County Researchers TxGenWeb needs your help. TxGenWeb has a new project - Index of Landmarks and Vanished Communities. A page has been set up with the basic USGS data for your county. Provisions are made for you and others to submit additional data on your county concerning landmarks; vanished communities; historical churches, schools, cotton gins, grist mills, river crossings, river bends; valleys, current and historical cemeteries, historical buildings (log cabins, family farms, early homes and businesses. etc.). In earlier times landmarks were known by several names. We would like to list them all. If grandpa talked about it we would like to give it a location - with the help of researchers in your local area. One Example: River bends, Crossings and Valleys: The USGS map makers only have the option of placing one name for a feature on their map. They use what they deemed the most generally used name. Consider the names of river bends - we have a number of them along the Brazos River. Most of the river bends (and valleys) went by several names in the 1880's. The names of prominent landowners were usually used but there usually were several prominent land owners in the bend or valley, hence several names. For example the USGS maps today call one Brazos river bend in Hood County, Walters Bend, but you will find historical documents that call it Chicken Gristle Bend as well as Chicken Bristle Bend. The Hood County local historian says "the feature names on maps are nothing but gossip and the map maker only talked to a few gossips." People on one side of the river may have called river crossings by one name where people on the other side gave it another name. Some river bends and valleys on USGS maps do not have a name at all but the locals have a name for it. We want to preserve all of these names. Naming variations are also common for other type features as well. Another example: Communities have vanished, some changed name with the comming of a Post Office or railroad. Today, USGS maps may identify some historic communities however some are not listed. or are only in evidence by the name of a nearby cemetery. You will note that "clicking" on the feature name will take you to a page showing tabular data ; then "click" on "Show Feature Location " and you will taken you to the map. You may then "Zoom In" to get more detailed information. The initial Landmark and Vanished Communities County pages do not contain data in the description column as the USGC data did not include this information. The submittal form may be used for you and other researchers to add this information. The far right column of your current county index shows USGS as the submitter as data was extracted from USGS records. Others, such as you, submitting data will have their name and e-mail address in this column. Other researchers can then contact you if they have questions concerning your landmark entry. To get an idea of the type of data that can be added please View Hood County Landmarks at: http://www.hcnews.com/~landmark/hood.htm as an example. Index of All Texas Counties: http://www.hcnews.com/~landmark/ Your County Listing: :http://www.hcnews.com/~landmark/zavala.htm Landmark Submittal Form: http://hcnews.com/~landmark/howto.htm Global Search for landmark in all counties: http://hcnews.com/~landmark/search.htm Later we will add a page where researchers can post queries and answers regarding unknown locations of places/landmarks that researchers come across in historical documentation and oral traditions. Wayne Moyers, President Hood County Genealogical Society and member Hood County Historical Society is moderator for the TxGenWeb Landmark WebPages. <wmoyers@flash.net> Frank Saffarrans, TxGenWeb Hood County Coordinator is general coordinator for the TxGenWeb Landmark Project. opa@hcnews.com> THE BOTTOM LINE: We need your help in identifying and providing descriptions of landmarks in your county. We believe that Landmarks and Vanished Communities can be a significant research tool that can be used by researchers nationwide. Please provide a link from your county TxGenWeb Page to: http://www.hcnews/~landmark/ and submit locations of Historical landmarks and places grandpa talked about. Please encourage other researchers in your county to do the same. If you have questions or comments about this project please send them to: Frank Saffarrans: opa@hcnews.com Frank Saffarrans General Administrator Texas Landmark Project TexGenWeb
