LeRoy & Jean (Linderman) Frederick Children


This is one of my favorite pics of Patricia, Karl, Sarah, & Sally Frederick, @ 11039 Lafferty Oaks St., Houston, TX 77013, 713-674-1600 @ Jean (Linderman) Frederick Mancill & Louis Clifford Mancill's home, in Wood Shadows. We have had many a happy years here at Lafferty Oaks. We have been through 3-1/2 feet of water in our home during Tropical Storm Allison in July 2001. We worked our butts off gutting out, and remodeling it for a over a year. Karl & I attended Houston ISD school @ Furr High School in Houston, TX. I graduated in May 1972.
Patricia & Sarah lived with Daddy & Barbara Frederick (my step mother) @ 509 Marblehead St., Dayton, TX with Barbara's children: Jeanna & Joey Faulk. They all attended Dayton ISD schools.
My Mother taught me how to sew at the age of 16, and I made the outfit that I am wearing. Mother made the Raggedy Ann dolls for Sarah & Patricia "Tricia" for Christmas one year.
God blessed us with a Godly Mother and Father, that taught us about God and Jesus. They taught us morals and manners.
All six of Mother's children all grew up to be fine upstanding American citizens. We took lots of trips to New Braunfels, and Galveston, TX for vacations. Mother and my Step Dad, Louis Clifford Mancill, bought some land up at Sam Houston Lake Estates, near Cleveland, TX in 1969. My Dad built us a two-story house, we call it the "Cabin". It was our vacation home on the Lake for the weekends. My son, Jason Fallin, learned how to fish on the pier there at the house. We still have that house today. We are richly blessed.

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!!"

What I Like About Texas!

HAPPY 175th. BIRTHDAY, TEXAS!
