Recent acquistion of family photo album (circa 1900)includes photos of family friends living in the Hempstead, Waller County residents. Any descendants of Dobbs, Mr. Dobbs sister Carrie, Andrew Cathcart, Robb please contact me if interested in photocopies of the photos. Would love to share family history which included these families. Maybe intermarriages. I'm interested in knowing.

I am searching for info on James Garner who lived in Waller during the early 1900's or earlier. He is listed in the 1910 census living in Waller Co. with his second wife Ida (Spiller) Garner. They had a son Melvin Garner, which is my father. Melvin died before I was born, so I do not know any of my relatives on his side. It is a mystery, because when I would seek info from his side of the family I was told I did not need to know them. If you think you can help I would greatly appreciate it. I have heard the name Chapman in talking to an uncle. I am interested in knowing.

My great grandmother, Sarah Ann Garner Roe, was the daughter of William Garner and Ann Rowley. Sarah Ann married Joseph William Roe in England before coming to the US (HEmpstead) in 1885 or 1886. Joseph Roe died Feb. 1886. Sarah Ann Garner Roe left her four children with her sister, Jane Elizabeth Garner Chapman and went back to England. Jnae Elizabrth wife of Joseph Chapman of Burbage, England. Sarah never returned to US. Sarah Ann and Jane Elizabeth only two Garners I have that came to US at least only two I know about. Thanks for your assistance.

Melva, are you still looking for the Melvin Garner family? I have some information on the Garners and Spillers that may be of interest to you.

I saw your old post of 30 June 2000. My great uncle, J. EUGENE BOULET, served as pastor of Shiloh Baptist Church after J. S. Dobbs was pastor at Shiloh. Did you find any pictures of 'Uncle Eugene' BOULET in the Dobbs photos? I would appreciate any information or photos you might find.
Thank you in advance.
