Hi, From the Ivy's. We live in a small town in central Texas, where everyone is related one way or the other. My husband retired from the US Army in 1992 and we moved here to his home town. We have just started doing our family history (Oct 96)and I just started using the internet, so please check back, hopefully the page will get better as I learn. (lest it will have more links. I want to Thank "GeoCities" for giving me this opportunity to have a home page. If I, the computer klutch, can create a home page, then you should have no problems, Stop by GeoCities, after looking at this page first, of course, and see how easy it is. Please stop and sign the guest book below. I am the volunteer for the Mills County, TX GenWeb site and will help do look-ups and searches for this area of Texas, Just Write Me.

The Zion Lutheran Church of Priddy, TX compiled a Centennial Church Directory in 1989 for the church celebrating it's first 100 years, 1889 to 1989. Well, I have just learned that they still have a limited amount of directory's for sale and if you would like more information than click here for more information Be sure to use your Back button to return to this page.

My Great Great Grandfather appears to have just turned up in Tennessee, I can't find any proof that he was born to any parents, has any brother's or sister's. He just exists. I can visit his grave in Sycamore Cemetery, in Cannon County, TN. I can see his family grow on the 1850 and on thru the census. I lose track of his daughters, Ibby Caroline DODD and Caldonia DODD and his son John W. or M. DODD. Thank goodness, I have found a little information on Richard Monroe DODD, his other son and my Great Grandfather. Hal Ray Dodd, son of Richard Monroe Dodd and Sarah Ella Bratten, is my grandfather,
