  • First-hand information. Entered by Dorothy Huff at registration.

I was the 4th of 5 children born to Dave and Olga Huff. I attended school in the Cypress-Fairbanks ISD all 12 years, graduating 4th in my class in 1964. I excelled in sports earning a place on the Texas Girls Coaches' South All-Star team. As a child I faithfully attended Fairbanks Methodist Church. I received advance placement at Sam Houston State University where I earned a BA in English and Math. In 1966 I met the love of my life, Philip T. LaBarbera, who was attending Texas A&M University as a pre-med student. In 1968 we married and I began my teaching career at Ball High in Galveston, TX. In 1970 we welcomed our first child, Paul. After a move to Austin, our daughter Ann was born. Then, after a move to Fort Worth, our son Brian was born. We finally settled in Nacogdoches, where we adopted a fourth child, Leah. After raising a family, teaching, and doing volunteer work in East Texas, my marriage of almost 30 years failed and I moved back to Luling, the small Central Texas town where I was born. Here I live with my dependent sister who has been under my care since 1981. We enjoy our century old tumble down house with it's squishy floors and high ceilings. I have had the good fortune to travel quite a bit with my vagabond daughter Anne. In addition to many trips to Scotland, she and I have traveled to Canada, Mexico, and coast to coast in the US. My favorite thing is to visit family. I have three grandchildren and one great grandchild. 2014 In 2015 my dear sister Carolyn passed away after a short illness. I then sold the old house in Luling, TX and moved in with two of my children, living alternately in Round Rock, TX and New York City. It is a blessing to be welcomed in my children’s homes where I can make contributions to daily life. In 2021 I welcomed a second great grandchild. 2021 (NYC)

Dorothy, I see you sent a message to the manager of Charles Binns . Did you ever receive an answer to this? I'm trying to find out if this is a Charles Binns who was born around 1698 in the Virginia Colonies.


Dorothy, The comment you posted on my profile belongs on G2G for the larger Wikitree community, unless, of course, you were directing your comment to me, specifically. You might want to post it here,

Dorothy, I must appologize for not answering your message much sooner. I have not been very active on WikiTree for a while. In September 2014 you requested information from me on George Norwood Dilworth of Georgia/Texas. Unfortunately I am not familiar with the person and cannot add any information for you. Again, I am sorry I didn't answer sooner. Francis Dilworth

Hi ,

You are now a member of the WikiTree Community. We are trying to build one Collaborative Tree which means one profile per person. It is important to ensure no duplicates are entered as you add any Profiles to WikiTree.

If you need any help getting started check out the help section from the menu, top left, or head over to the G2G forum, you might want to check out the introductory WikiTree video that a member created.

Our Mentor Team are a friendly bunch of volunteers who will be glad to help you with specific problems if you have any.

Good luck growing your branches, and thanks for offering to help with our shared tree - Matty Gerrard :)

I have been following in the footsteps of family researchers who've gone before me. I enjoy putting the family in historical context.

Welcome as a guest to WikiTree! We're growing a FREE worldwide family tree, striving for ONE collaborative profile for every person.

A couple suggestions to get you started:

1. Feel free to ask a question at our G2G forum .

2. Our help pages, top right, have all sorts of useful information.

If you would like to contribute, click the volunteer button and leave a comment here on your profile to let our greeters know. You should include a little bit about how you plan to contribute to the tree.

Good luck growing your branches, and thanks for offering to help with our shared tree - Matty Gerrard :)
