Family is Forever


SALLY TUDOR, REBECCA FLOYD, PHYLLIS HYDEN

Family is Forever! God blessed me with a wonderful, loving family, and we were blessed with the opportunity to get together for the holidays. Me, Sally Tudor, my cousin, Rebecca Floyd, and my sister, Phyllis Hyden, and my wonderful brother-in-law, James Hyden, all enjoyed food and fellowship at Pappasitos in Houston, Harris, Texas in December 2015.

We Are The Chosen


"Remember and honor family who have come and gone before you, because they had a hand in shaping who you are." Genealogy Quote

“Remember and honor family who have come and gone before you, because they had a hand in shaping who you are.”

We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors.

To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.

Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before.

We are the storytellers of the tribe.

Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time,
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.
Lord, help me trace the ancient roads
On which my father’s trod,
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.
Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript,
That’s safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.
Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul when I can’t find,
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.

Thomas Benton “Tom” Tudor~Southern Heroes


Texas Tudor's Memorials

During the Civil War, Tippah County furnished large numbers of troops and military leadership for the Confederate Army. The 2nd Mississippi fought at Manassas in Virginia in 1861 and the 3rd Mississippi fought at Fort Donelson. The 7th Mississippi was formed and served with General Bedford Forrest. That same year, the courthouse was burned by Federal troops, though many valuable records were preserved and hidden for over two years until the war’s completion. The present day courthouse was built in 1870.
