A question: What makes a Native Texan?

Flag of Texas
Native Texan (born Duval County, never married, not dead yet

Does born, lived, and died in Texas make you a Native Texan? Daughters of the Republic of Texas required you to prove you had ancestor(s) who lived in the Republic of Texas in order to join and that makes you a Native Texan. I was born in Texas, lived in Texas until age 26. I've lived in Australia since 6 Oct 1984 and will most likely die in Australia. But I have 3 great great grandparents who lived in the Republic of Texas. They were Rachel Hemminger, Christopher Columbus Fitzgerald and his wife Martha Burke. Am I a Native Texan?

So I had a Family Finder test done with Family Tree DNA. I wanted to find out more about my father's mother if I could. I needed another Family Finder Test done by a cousin. My Cousin agreed to have one done. The results came back. I signed on with my kit number and my cousin was not offered as a relative. I signed on with my cousins kit number and I was not offered as a relative of my cousin. I was very surprised to say the least. I emailed Family Tree DNA. They replied that my cousin and I were not related. I didn't understand. So I emailed them again. They repeated no common ancestor in less than 5 generations. The possibilities are either Elzo or RobertDouglas is not the son of Robert Wesley. Or I am not the daughter of Elzo or my cousin is not the son of Robert Douglas. As I already know that Elzo's birth certificate shows the name of his mother as different from the wife of his father, I am more prone to think that the parental break was between Elzo and Robert Wesley rather thant between Robert Wesley and Robert Douglas. I don't know for sure. I am going to click uncertain father for both myself and Elzo.

Silly me, when I was 15 I voluntarily went in and had my finger prints taken at the local police station to be sent to the FBI. Years later I went to work for the Federal Government in Washington DC where they took my fingerprints. My next job was at a bank in Washington DC where they also took my fingerprints. I got a driver's license in Texas and the state of Washington. I worked for an insurance company. I immigrated to New Zealand. They checked me out with the FBI before approving me. I got a driver's license in New Zealand. I worked for a bank. I immigrated to Australia. Australia checked me out with both New Zealand Police and the FBI before approving me. I got a driver's license in Victoria, Australia. I worked for a bank, Telecom, another bank. I retired. I have a long paper trail that would show my identity should a police force of one sort or another choose to follow it up. Probably totally useless for genealogical purposes.

Several years ago it came to my attention that the State of Texas was holding a sum of money from an uncashed cashier's check for a person with my name. It was a sum of money well worth having. I inquired how I might apply for it. I needed proof... I searched all the papers in 2 file cabinets that I had accumulated over the years. I finally found copies of bank statement for the period of time of the check. It was well over 7 years prior and the bank had no records. I had a chat with someone at the State Treasurer's office. The required proof would be (1) the original check which I somehow had failed to cash or (2) the carbon copy of the check which I happened to have kept in a file. I could not produce either. And neither could the 4 other women that shared my name who had inquired. Our names were the same but one hopes we had different Social Security Numbers. There may be other women that share my name that haven't applied for said money. As far as I know, I'm the only woman in Australia with my name. But it isn't always easy to find some one.

  • First-hand information. Entered by Virginia Moffett at registration.

I have a copy of my birth certificate. I expect I will be able to be found when the 1950 Federal Census is released about 2020. My family moved from Devine to Alice Texas in the summer of 1950. Not sure when census day was that year. As an adult, I had a brief fling with the catholic church so I believe baptismal and confirmation records could be found at St Elizabeth's Catholic Church in Alice Texas. This would be in the late 1950s. These sources of information would show the names of my parents, dates and places of my birth.

Hi Gina, nice to "meet" you. James is quite a ways back. My record shows James to John to Christopher to Thomas to Elizabeth to T. Green Sparkman to Minnie Sparkman (Keever) to Edward Keever to me. Ireland to North Carolina to Tennesee to Missouri. I envy your traveling. I did most of mine in the Air Force. Am now retired in NW Missouri.

Dr, should be Dr. No access to fix it myself. Gina

Thanks, Gina, I've fixed it. Can't make it open, too recent, I guess.

This is the first time I have come across your name while at WikiTree. I very much like it and your sense of humor!

After searching for a long time, the Relationship Finder says we are uncertainly 16th cousins 2x removed. LOL. Always nice to meet an uncertain cousin!

RE: Bobby J. Smith

The subject you asked me about married a Roberts (my paternal cousins) and the children of the marriage were born in Lubbock, Texas ca. 1960's-----your Randy Smith I am sure is a different Randy Smith.

Hi Gina,

Sounds like you fell down the same rabbit hole I did! :-) You're absolutely on the right track to take it one person at a time so as not to get overwhelmed. In terms of sources, don't be afraid to ask others for help on G2G. We are on the whole a friendly bunch who really enjoy helping build the global tree together. The same can be said for European sources. This is what makes Wikitree so fantastic - people in Australia can help people in Austria and visa versa. Thank you so much for all you do.

Susie :-)
