"The Old Unreconstructed" by Waylon Jennings

Confederate National Anthem - Dixie Land



God bless all my Southern ancestors that fought for what they believed in, and for their families. They are all heroes to me. They were not lazy liberals or whiny deserters.  

They did whatever they had to, in order to survive. They worked for everything that they had, and did not expect others to take care of them. 

My ancestors never owned slaves. And...I would never have either...besides the fact that I was not even alive then! And...if I want to fly my Confederate flag alongside my American flag...then that is my choice!! For now, this is America.

This is America, and no one has the right to tell us what kind of flag that we can fly. Some of my ancestors were Rebels and some were Yankees. I love both sides. I honor the heritage of all my ancestors.

Johnny Cash - Walk the line LIVE at San Quentin



I love this song. This is mine and the "love of my life's" song. Our first date. Our first movie. Been together ever since, and yes he and I both "walk the line" for each other.

Central State Farm Prison, Sugar Land, Texas




The Central State Farm Prison, T. D. C. J, Sugar Land, Texas was opened in 1905. There is a lot of history here. It should be turned into a historical museum. I worked here from 1991 to 1996 in the SATP (Substance Abuse Treatment Program) department. The Texas State Prison Museum is in Huntsville, Texas.

Trisha Yearwood - Real Live Woman



This is one of my favorite songs, and I dedicate it to "the love of my life", Leonard Ross Tudor, my husband for nine years now on January 27, 2015. I pray that we have many more together. This song is me and him. Thank you, Lord for finally answering my prayers. 

What I Like About Texas!

HAPPY 175th. BIRTHDAY, TEXAS!

FAMILY ROOTS RUN DEEP!

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.

1994 IS WHEN I REALLY STARTED WORKING DILIGENTLY ON MY GENEALOGY, BECAUSE 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 JOHNSON, MY SPONSOR BIRDIE MAE NEFF, GLADYS LINDERMAN NELSON, AND 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!!"
