There are so many dear, sweet folks I've met through blogging about my family genealogy! Three of them have been so kind as to give me this "sweet" award called "Happy 101" to recognize Genealogy Traces and Tennessee Memories.


I first heard from Debbie Blanton at  Blanton Family Roots and Branches and then Taylorstales-Genealogy dropped by with hers. I also heard from Robin Cordell-Inge who writes Where I Come From. Over at Tennessee Memories, Janice Tracy, author of Mississippi Memories and six other very interesting blogs, left her "sweet" comments! Thanks to all of you.

Thank you so much, Judy, I am honored. I was wondering what kind of glass you collect? I don't know much about glass, but there are certain kinds I see that fascinate me.

My husband I both love the line "table wine of the South." We agree!
LOL! I stole that iced tea comment from the movie, "Steel Magnolias." I believe it was Truvy (Dolly Parton) that said it to Shelby (Julia Roberts) at the County Fair. I just HAD to use it SOMEwhere!

As to the subject of glass - I really like all kinds. I used to actively collect, but am content now to just enjoy what I have and not continue to deplete what's out there for sale!!

I have several different patterns of Depression Glass, the largest group I have is in the Iris pattern by Jeannette. And I have quite a collection of milk glass by Westmoreland.

Have a good evening, Greta!

This most unique sign has been one of my most enduring childhood memories. I was born in 1943 and it was there at that time, I'm sure, because there are other postcards or photographs that have been dated 1940. I got married in 1964, moved to Tennessee with my husband of a year, visited my hometown several times during the 25 years I lived away from Texas, and sometime during that time the sign was removed. I was so sick when I discovered the sign gone. I suppose progress has a way of doing that to you!

There are many websites that tell the story of the healing mineral waters of my hometown of Mineral Wells and the many wells and spas that drew thousands of visitors seeking the rejuvenating powers of these waters. You will find the story of their discovery and the subsequent growth of the town very in…

Doc Gailey and His Sisters

Gailey Children James Dolphus Gailey Grace Amanda Gailey Nellie Mae Gailey
Children of James Newton Gailey and Eleanor Elizabeth Brock Brock Community, Parker County, Texas

My grandfather, James Dolphus "Doc" Gailey, had two younger sisters whom he adored. Grace and Nell were doted on by him and his parents and they grew up so attached to one another, their sibling love and devotion was a thing to be admired. I feel it gave all of their children and grandchildren an example to learn from and a standard to strive for. It was always such fun when the aunts came to visit. Some of you may remember that Doc and Grandma raised me so I, more often than not, call my mother's aunts my aunts, when in reality they were my great-aunts. And my sisters and I would usually go with Doc and Grandma to the aunts' houses to visit, so I find myself remembering things about them that my 1st cousins do not.
All three of Jim and Elizabeth's children were born in the Brock community of Parker …
