Every day is memorial day to a soldier. This project is our way of honoring all of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family members and loved ones of those that gave their lives to fight for our country. May God give you peace in your heart and strength to carry on. They proudly served their country. Now, they proudly serve with angel's wings.
Salute to Our Veterans
Every day should be Veterans day--a special day that every American should take a moment to reflect, and thank those who serve in our armed forces, both past and present? This project is our way of honoring all Veterans who served his or her country for our freedom. Thank you and God Bless!

A query about the family of Esquire Williamson was posted on the county
Below is the Query Mr. Williamson posted. If you have any information to help him to find the information he is requesting please email Tim Williamson.
My father is Thomas Joe Williamson whose father is Henry Franklin Williamson (HFW) whose father is Esquire Thomas Williamson (ETW).
ETW was born in Alabama in 1838, moved to Eastland, TX sometime after 1860 (i.e., after the
Civil War). My records show that ETW and family moved to Shafter Lake in 1904.
I am a novice at genealogical research but did come across the enclosed document. I accidentally located it. It is listed on the Anderson County TXGenWeb site (http://www.etgs.org/txanderson/ConfPens/ConfPens.htm)
I conclude that was listed there accidentally because the first page says “Andrews County” and
it was mistaken for Anderson County.
If you go to the link above, you will find it near the bottom listed as:
Williamson, Martha L. 21366 Anderson Williamson, Esquire Thomas
Can you tell me what I can do (or how best) to find any other information for my ancestors who
lived in Andrews County?

I do have some obituaries from 1945 to 1970 that I will slowly work to get transcribed, then added as well.
If you are looking for a particular obituary and it is not posted please feel free to email me, I will see if I can locate it. Once it is found I will get it posted. Please ensure to send the Name & date of death of the person you are looking for so it is easier to locate.
Thank you for stopping by...
