“JOHN TUDOR, SR. b. ca. 1695; d. ca. 1721. (A very young man). Little is known about John Tudor, SR. d. intestate 1771 in Surry Co., VA.. Inventory of his estate was filed under JOHN TEDDER in Surry Co., VA.. He left a widow named Mary and 2 young sons- Benjamin Tudor, and John Tudor, Jr. It is known that the widow Mary m2. to the co-administrator of the estate, Henry Rose, some months prior to the filing of the Inventory 1 Ap. 1721. Proof that he left 2 young sons comes from the Deeds & Estate records of Henry Rose, when he explains the relationship to his wife Mary, and refers to them as step-sons when he deeded land to them. John Tudor, SR. had modest household furnishings, some pewter, a Bible, and a Book of Common Prayer (suggesting a link to the Church of England), and shoemaker’s tools along with a ‘parcel of leather. (suggesting he had been a shoemaker by trade).

JOHN TUDOR JR. was b. ca 1720 ; d. 1782 Granville Co., N. C.. It is highly probable that he was born in VA.. He was born no later than 1720 and could have been born a few years earlier. It is believed that he spent his ‘growing up’ years in the Isle of Wight Co., VA. The first record that we have of John Tudor, JR., is a deed to him from his step-father, Henry Rose, in Brunswick, VA, dated 7 June, 1750, which states that both men were living in Brunswick, VA. 

Henry Rose deeded the remainder of the 342 acre tract of land in Brunswick, VA. but reserved interest for himself and his wife, Mary, to reside on the tract. Henry Rose died about 1752 and John Tudor, JR., remained in Brunswick Co., VA., until 1764, when he moved to Granville Co., N.C., with his own family and other TUDOR relatives. John Tudor, JR. m 1st Elizabeth [nee ???] 1749-69. There is no evidence to tell us what her maiden name was. There is evidence that she died before 1762. . and John Tudor, JR., married another Elizabeth Seymour White. There is evidence that she was a daughter of Valentine White, and OUR TUDOR LINE traces to this Elizabeth. The 2nd Elizabeth was the mother of BLUMER TUDOR, our ancestor.

The children of John Tudor, JR., were: A. Phoebe Tudor, b, ca, 1750; m. John Morris. B. Henry Tudor, b. ca. 1752; d. by 1782; m. Nancy, C. John Tudor III, b. 1754, had a R/W pension. A R/W soldier who went to Madison Co., KY..

He m. 1st 1779 in Granville, N.C.; to Martha Search. He m. 2nd to Frances Phillips, m 3rd to Elizabeth White. These were the children of his 1st wife.

Children of his 2nd wife were: D. Valentine Tudor, b. 1764; m. Granville Co., N.C., to Elizabeth Hicks. Valentine Tudor had a R/W pension. E. Tabitha Tudor, b. 1766, m. 1784 Granville Co., N.C., to Pleasant Whitlow. F. Winifred Tudor, b. ca. 1769; m. James Long. G. BLUMER TUDOR, (our ancestor), b. 1770-72 Granville Co., N.C.; m. 21 May, 1795 in Madison Co., KY. to CHARITY TURNER. (more later). H. Daniel Tudor, b. 1774; m. Nancy Moberly. I. Anne Tudor, b. ca. 1777, m. Samuel Moberly. During the migration in 1785-1787, the widow Elizabeth took her 6 youngest children to Madison Co., KY., with her eldest son Valentine & his family. There is evidence that some of her older children joined her there. She died in Madison Co., KY., amongst her children.”

All of our Ancestors Emigrated To America Legally


LEGAL IMMIGRANTS

All of our ancestors emigrated to America legally, worked for what they wanted, and never took welfare. Beautiful America = Krasna Amerika.

The TUDOR’s emigrated from England and Wales.

The MCCANN’s emigrated from Ireland.

My FREDERICK and MAZAC’s emigrated from Moravia.

My LUND’s emigrated from Norway.

My OLSSON’s emigrated from Sweden.

My HANSSON’s emigrated from Sweden.

My HAMMELL’s emigrated from Scotland.

My HARRIS’s emigrated from England

My HAMMOND’s emigrated from England.

My LINDERMAN ancestors emigrated from Germany, and resided in Germantown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1740. They helped to form these United States.

I still cannot fathom why so many millions of people immigrate to America to escape Communism and for freedom, yet they attempt to change America into the third world hell hole that they crawled out of!

My LINDERMAN ancestors came legally, worked for what they wanted, and did not accept charity. They did not expect others to feed, or clothe them or their families. They helped to build this grand Republic of ours. They served in our military in every war.

I will honor their work and sacrifices by standing up for and speaking out against the Communist N.W.O. takeover of our great nation. God, please help us to save America.

“This cemetery was set aside on the original homestead of John Tudor III. His first wife Martha Searcy is the earliest recorded burial, but there could be earlier lost stones. His 2nd wife Frances Phillips Tudor is also probably buried here.

John was born in Virginia and the Tudor family migrated to North Carolina, and from there John and at least eight siblings came to Kentucky, most staying in Madison county.

John and Martha Searcy Tudor are my 5X great-grandparents. Everyone buried in this cemetery is directly related to John and Martha.

My Family Research


FAMILY - ROOTS

I have already made my wishes clear to my family in case I die before them, that I want a copy of my thirty years of research to be donated to Clayton Genealogical in Houston, Texas, and a copy also to the George Memorial Library in Richmond, Texas.

My ultimate goal all along has been to write a book about my families, but I had to revise that plan to write several books on each branch of my family. I have too much for one book, and not all of my family will care about the other branches of our family as I have been. I love all history, not just family history, and not just my families history. 

I had a dream years ago about me dying and people just throwing things away, because they meant nothing to them.

Well, it means a hell of a lot to me. My son promised to handle according to my wishes. I have gathered and transcribed thousands of people’s data. The more I thought about it, I was so grateful that I had already transcribed all of the information from the records that I have in my possession.

Some of my many resources were:

  1. My maternal grandfather, Harry William Linderman, and great grandfather, Edward Francis Linderman’s family records and pictures.
  2. My maternal great aunt Gladys Serena Linderman Nelson provided me with information and pictures on the Linderman and Nelson families.
  3. The Palen Pedigree Chart that I received from my mother, Jean Marie Linderman Frederick Mancill, that she received in 1970 from Virginia Palen Long, her cousin, that were compiled by Vernon Walser Palen in 1965.
  4. My paternal grandmother, Elizabeth Annie “Bessie” Mazac Frederick’s Family Reunion notebook, that I transcribed all records from, The handwritten Mazac Family Reunion notebook that I received in 1995 from my Mazac Ancestors. I was the 1995-1998 President of the Mazac Reunion held in Circleville, Williamson County, Texas. The notebook has been damaged through a flood in 2001 in Houston, Harris County, Texas, from Tropical Storm Allison, but I salvaged it and still have it in 2016 as of this writing. 
  5. My paternal aunt, Agnes Rainie Frederick Christ, provided me with many old photos of the Czech-Moravian families on our tree.
  6. My paternal Czech-Moravian cousin, Louis Joseph Havelka’s records, recieved from his wife, Bernice Cernosek Havelka through verbal conversations with in 1995 provided information on the Havelka family.
  7. The FamilySearch.org and Findagrave.com websites have helped me immensely. 
  8. My mother-in-law, Annie Mae McCann Tudor, provided me with photos and information on the McCann and the Tudor families.
  9. My maternal second cousin, Roy Leonard Nelson, Jr. gave me information on the Nelson families. 

There are many more sources but these are the ones that were on the top of my list. I will add more later as time allows. 

God Bless Texas


NOT TEXAS - TEXAS

It was back in 490 BC when tyranny stood before liberty at a place called Thermopylae and Xerxes and the invading Persians demanded King Leonidas and the Spartans to lay down their arms. Leonidas replied with the words, “Molon Labe.”

On November 25, 1778 , 127 Continental Soldiers and some militiamen totaling about 200, under the command of Colonel John McIntosh, stood defiantly before a British force in Georgia at Ft. Morris and responded to the request of surrender to the British commander Colonel Fuser with “come and take it.”

On October 2, 1835 Mexico’s military commander of Texas, Colonel Domingo de Ugartechea, dispatched a company of Dragoons to retrieve the cannon from the Texians at the town of Gonzales.

Upon demanding surrender of the cannon, the Texians responded, “come and take it” – they voted to fight and deployed 140 to drive off the Mexicans.

The words of Leonidas translate to “Come, Take.” Those words are part of the American fabric and our desire to be free and independent when we are faced by tyranny. God bless Texas y’all!”

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 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

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.

Our ancestors left Europe to Escape this Crap!! Godly Mothers & Fathers

God is our only hope to save our beloved America from the Demon-Rat/Communists/Athiests/Muslimes!! Please, God save America! We have no where to go to from here. We MUST save America from the demons.

Family, Like Branches On A Tree, We Grow in Different Directions, Yet Our Roots Remain As One, Rooted In God And Jesus!


FAMILY - ROOTS

If we are Rooted in God and Jesus we are able to stand the strong winds, and storms of life! God never promised us a “rose garden”.  He promised us that He would be there with us to comfort us and we would never have to be alone again, unless we wanted to be. 

My family has shown me that we can go through anything with God and Jesus by our side. God has carried me through abuse, stalking, unemployment, losing my car, losing my home, and divorce. God never left me. I left Him.

Then, he gave me the “love of my life” when He thought that I was ready. I had to learn to put God number one no matter what….above my family, my husband, and my children…when I lost all and only had God…I found out that He was all that I ever needed. Mother told me that Dr. Lambert told her that, “Sometimes God has to put us on our backs, in order for us to have to look up to Him”. When God is all you have left. God is all you need.

Kensington Palace Tour


Life of Ty

I went on a tour of Kensington Palace with some of my friends a few days ago. I’ve lived down the street from it for two months, but had never made it inside. It was so neat, nothing like my tours of other historical places. It was very relaxed inside, no bad checks, no metal detectors, nothing roped off. We were able to tour several staterooms and apartments within the palace. There were exhibits about the fashion of the modern royals and about Victoria and Albert, the last ruling monarchs to live in Kensington Palace. I had a blast exploring my “neighbors'” house and learning about all of the history that has happened so close to where I live. And also being under the same roof of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was pretty cool too! We ended the day with dinner at Damario’s Pizzeria, which is on the…

When In Wales


Life of Ty

I had quite an adventure this weekend! I went on a trip with my school to Wales to go coasteering, kayaking, and hiking. I was so excited for countryside, fresh air, and a break from the city!

Our train ride to our lodge took almost all of Friday to get to. We arrived just in time for dinner, which was a welcome change from the food from the dining hall back at school. Our homemade mac and cheese and chocolate chip cake was amazing! I could write an entire blog just about the food from this trip, it was amazing.

Saturday morning, we woke up bright and early to begin our first activity. The group I was in was assigned to do the most intimidating activity first. None of us had ever done coasteering, so it was new to everybody. Coasteering is basically climbing on the rocks and boulders along…

What to do with 4 sunny days in London


it's that little feeling of ... Wanderlust

Yes, no joke! I got four, possibly even five, sunny days IN A ROW in London. My friend wasted no time in telling me how lucky I was. Actually, she said something like *yeah sure, it’s like this all the time! (to me commenting why everyone said London has bad weather) We actually keep telling people the weather is bad so they don’t come and we get to enjoy this all by ourselves.* I think there may have been a slight hint of sarcasm there… 😉

Jokes aside, I was thrilled I got to really enjoy London’s outdoors. That first day, as I was standing on the banks of the Thames, looking towards the city and enjoying the sunshine, I was so excited to finally be in Europe! Sure, it was hard to leave the bubble, but the world awaits!! So finally, without further ado, here are my…

Signer of the Declaration of Independence – Commander-in-Chief of the Texas Army – President of the Republic – Member of Congress of the Republic – Senator in the United States Congress – Governor of Texas

 

His early life–Joins the United States Army–Wounded in the Battle of Horseshoe–Studies Law–Elected Member of Congress and Governor of Tennessee–Came to Texas in 1833–Delegate to Old Washington Convention–Appointed Commander-in-Chief of the Texas Army–Defeats Santa Anna at San Jacinto–Elected President of the Republic–Senator in the United Sates Congress–Governor of Texas–Death in 1863.

 

Sam Houston was born near Lexington, Rockbridge County, Virginia, March 2, 1793.  His ancestors were of Scotch origin.  They came to America about 1689 and settled in Pennsylvania.  Robert Houston, Sam Houston’s grandfather, moved to Virginia and settled Rockbridge County.  Here he reared a family and here Sam Houston was born.  After the death of his father, his mother moved to Blount County, Tennessee.  He was but a lad of thirteen summers when his mother changed her residence from Virginia to the rugged State of Tennessee.  Here he came in contact with the Cherokee Indians, who lived near where his mother settled. He spent many leisure hours with them, joining them in their chase for game, which was in abundance at the time.

In 1813, Mr. Houston enlisted in the United Sates army.  The country was then at war with Great Britain.  He was not in the army long before his peculiar talents for military life were recognized.  He was soon promoted for gallantry in the battle with the Creek Indians.  In a fierce conflict at To-ho-ne-ka, (Horseshoe Bend of the Tallapoosa River), Alabama, he received a painful wound from an arrow from an Indian bow.  General Jackson ordered him to the rear, but he disregarded the order and joined his regiment in the thickest of the battle.  As the battle raged he received another wound that disabled him and from this he did not recover for many months, and did not rejoin his regiment until a short time before peace was declared.  He then served for a short time in the Adjutant General’s office at Nashville.  In November 1819, he was assigned to extra duty as sub-agent among the Cherokee Indians, to carry out a treaty just ratified with the nation.  During the winter of 1819-1820 he conducted a delegation of Cherokee Indians to Washington to present their claims to the Federal Government.

Regarding Houston’s military career in the United States army, a memorandum from the war department shows that “Sam Houston entered the Seventh Infantry as a Sergeant; became ensign in the Thirty-ninth Infantry, July 29, 1813; was severely wounded in the battle of Horse-shoe Bend under Major-General Jackson, March 27th; made Third Lieutenant December1813; promoted to Second Lieutenant May, 1814; retained May 15th in First Infantry; became First Lieutenant March 1, 1818; resigned May 17, 1818.”

Soon after resigning from the army Mr. Houston entered the law office of Mr. James Trimble, an eminent lawyer at Nashville, for the purpose of studying law.  He was soon admitted to the bar and at once became a successful advocate, locating in Lebanon.  He was soon elected District Attorney.  This made it necessary for him to reside in Nashville.  His resident in Lebanon was so pleasant that he left it with regrets.  When about to move to Nashville he delivered a public address to the citizens of Lebanon in which he expressed regrets that it became necessary for him to leave them.  In his address he said: “The time has come when I must bid you farewell.  Although duty calls me away, yet I must confess it is with feelings of sincere regret that I leave you.  I shall ever remember with emotions of gratitude the kindness which I have received at your hands.  I came among you poor and a stranger and you extended the hand of welcome, and received me kindly.  I was naked and ye clothed me–I was hungry and you fed me–I was athirst and ye gave me drink.”

“Mr. Houston’s address” said I. V. Drake, in a letter to his biographer, Dr. William Carey Crane, “was delivered in so pathetic a style that its effect was to cause many to shed tears.”

In 1820 Mr. Houston was appointed Adjutant-General of the State, with the rank of Colonel.  In 1821 he was elected Major-General by the field officers of the division that composed two-thirds of the State.

England Travel: Oxford


NJ to the World

If London was a shining beacon of adventure and excitement, relatively Oxford was much more of a disappointment. I think this is true, for me, because I had a explicitly detailed, vivid preconceived notion of what I expected Oxford to be like. Like most college-aged, study abroad, American tourists in Europe, I had to hit one of England’s prestigious schools (those being Cambridge or Oxford: Oxbridge). I happened to choose Oxford, mainly because it’s one of the oldest and highest ranked universities in the world, partially because they filmed bits of Harry Potter there. Needless to say, it did not match what I had expected. But, if Oxford was not good for anything else, it was good for one thing: it got me out of London to see some of the rest of the country of England. I really wish I could have seen more of the English countryside. But Oxford…

England Travel: London


NJ to the World

While many of my trips in Europe brought me to some of the world’s finest cities, I think it is fair to say that London was the most impressive. Maybe it was because my expectations were not set extremely high (I had been told for some time that London was essentially “New York, but everything is double the price because of the pound system”). While London and New York City share many commonalities– both are bustling metropolises and world leaders in finance– I found there was much about London that made it incredibly distinctive. London is full of history and culture that are unique to the city and the country of England. The red Double-Decker buses, the iconic red phone booths, the street performers, and London’s deep-rooted history were all something of a wonder. Not to mention, the city possessed one of the best transportation systems I have ever experienced…

STEPHENVILLE, ERATH COUNTY, TEXAS


 Bosque River in Stephenville, TX 

My husband’s ancestors Thomas “Tom” Benton Tudor and Sallie Hampton Keith family moved from Tippah County, Mississippi to Stephenville, Erath County, Texas in 1886. They had  thirteen (13) children together. 





Bridge – Erath Co., TX
In 1891, Texas bridge builder William Flinn assembled this highly unusual cable-stayed bridge using iron pipes, rods and castings. Wrapped wire cables complete the 140-foot invention. 
Crossing the Paluxy River near rural Bluff Dale, this technological wonder remains as the earliest known cable-stayed bridge in the United States.

GAY HILL, TEXAS (Washington County). Gay Hill is on Farm Road 390 twelve miles northwest of Brenham in the rolling hills of northern Washington County. The town was an educational and religious center on the La Bahía Road in early Texas. Rev. Hugh Wilson established the second Presbyterian church in Texas there in 1839. Presbyterians from throughout the republic met in the community, then known as Chriesman Settlement, to organize the Brazos Presbytery in 1840.

By 1840 the Republic of Texas established a post office in the new town under the name Gay Hill, after the owners of the town store, Thomas Gay and William Carroll Jackson Hill.

The beautiful forested hills and healthy climate attracted prominent early Texans, including residents Horatio Chriesman, R. E. B. Baylor, John Sayles, and Dr. George C. Red. Horticulturist Thomas Affleck‘s Glenblythe Plantation was located in the Gay Hill vicinity.

Old Gay Hill served as the supply point of a moderately prosperous agricultural area. In 1854 a Masonic lodge was founded there. Between 1853 and 1888 Rev. James W. Miller operated Live Oak Female Seminary in Gay Hill. By 1860 the town had flour and lumber mills and a population of 280.

After the Civil War a cotton gin augmented the town’s prosperity; retail establishments continued to thrive. The Masonic lodge and Presbyterian and Baptist churches were active.

During the 1870’s the town had a Grange and a Democratic Club. The Republican party remained strong among Gay Hill’s black residents, despite Greenback party efforts.

When the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway extended to the Gay Hill vicinity in 1881, residents moved the town to its present location, two miles west of the original site. The former location is sometimes called Old Gay Hill.

Gay Hill’s population was 120 in 1890.

By 1900 Germans were the dominant ethnic group. The town became a distribution center by the early twentieth century. Cotton buying and ginning sustained this station on the Santa Fe through the Great Depression.

By 1936 Gay Hill had an estimated population of 250 and ten businesses. The nearby Sun oilfield, which opened in 1928, and its pipeline enabled the town to maintain a variety of retail and commercial establishments through the early post-World War II era.

The decline of cotton and rise of ranching in the area hastened the town’s demise as a distribution center and supply point. The population declined to 200 by 1958, and businesses decreased to five. The last store closed in 1971, when many residents had moved to Brenham.

In 1993 the estimated population was 145, and the community had no businesses; its economy depended on ranching. It had two churches, a cemetery, and lodge hall. The population remained the same in 2000.

The Age of Innocence


930a2c47e91b9c692c22c5701f18c809.jpg

The picture is adorable. I was a really, sweet, loving, adorable, and kind little girl. I loved everyone, and believed that if everyone would just “be nice” to each other then life would be wonderful. But…that was not reality…and everyone was not nice. I was taught that we were all God’s children and we were loved. I thought that the “good guys” always won, and that you should be honest, kind, and loving to everyone. I loved to read, and I lived through my books. I always had a diary or journal. Writing always gave me a release and helped me to sort my feelings out. 
I loved playing house, dancing, singing, walking barefoot in the cool grass, and climbing trees. Every summer we had a pool in our backyard, and Daddy cooked a lot of barbecue.  He made the best chicken with his homemade barbecue sauce, and Mother made potato salad and beans to go with it. Of course, growing up in a German, Norwegian, and Moravian home we always had something good for dessert. 
I grew up in Jacinto City, Texas. We grew up in a day when you could play outside without fear of being attacked or kidnapped. We knew all our neighbors and each one of the houses had a lot of children. We did not have to lock our doors then, because we trusted our neighbors. We looked out for each other’s homes and children. Mother and Daddy had six of us children. 
We celebrated birthdays, and holidays with all our neighbors and family too. There was always good music, good food, and dancing when we celebrated. My Daddy taught me how to dance the polka. We loved Chubby Checker and dancing the Twist. 
We loved playing kick ball, baseball, and chase. We played “Hide and Seek”. We played card games, monopoly, dominoes, and yahtzee.
Mother was always home when we came home from school, and Daddy worked hard for a living. We ate a lot of bean and cornbread, macaroni, and spaghetti. Mother made the best bread. We did not have much materially, but we had lots of love. Good memories from back then.

Our 

Story

 

This is the story of Cosmic Serenity. On a warm dark night in Seabrook, Texas Trill Labo stops by an after hours spot to grab a slice and a beer. When he gets there Lucky Mojo is hosting an open mic and DJ‘ing between sets. After Lucky heard Trill play some groovy jams for the crowd he approached him to join in on a harmonica, and blessed tune jams were made. Right after, Trill looked at Lucky and said, “I fucks wit that, now what you think about this…” and started playing another original rift, and again the boogie was laid down. After that night of playing rift after rift and chatting about music, life and past Cosmic Serenity was forged.

Trill Labo – Lead VocalsGuitar / Song Writer

 
Trill Labo is but an old school hippie, and he has been living the life of a gypsy for quite some time now. With that said he's also an old blues singer with a heart and voice from another era. The name of his band, Cosmic Serenity, and his original songs tell the story of a life of upheaval and hurt but with a message of redemption In Trill’s Words “I was “unwanted” from birth – given up for adoption along with five siblings, all from different fathers.
My great aunt and uncle adopted us, but later lost the oldest three to CPS. My great uncle was Cornelius CR Simmons, a retired scientist and “backyard blues” musician. I remember sitting at his feet listening to him play and sing the blues. After he became bed-ridden, I spent many hours with him talking and listening. When he passed life became much more difficult for me and my siblings. I was an athlete in high school, but it wasn't enough to keep me from running from a bad family situation at the age of 17. Now at 19, I have been homeless at times,lived with friends at times and lived in a long-term foster care group home, which, crazy as it sounds, is where I found my voice. Now I’m living on my own, working and going to college and following my dream of a career in music. Life inspiresme in all its beauty and all its ugliness. My music comes from my life, from nature, and from the Source of life.

Lucky Mojo –  Vocals / Harmonica / Song Writer / Production

 

Lucky Mojo is as eclectic as he is unique. With a background as a DJ / MC / Host / Entertainer going international at 20, he keeps most of the other parts of his life close to the vest that he so often wears. He is very evasive when asked direct questions about his past. Often changing the subject to make a joke, tell a story or pulling out a mouth harp and playing a few bars. Then all of the sudden is serious and somber as he stares off into the distance and recants a bit of his story. Armed with an GQ from the waist up fashion, quick wit coupled with the cheesiest corny jokes, a colorful imagination and vocabulary, an unexpected  vocal range and projection and the ability to make a harp change the mood of the room Lucky Mojo is a hype man and a force unleashed upon the Cosmic Serenity stage. Big on production, entertainment and showmanship Lucky is always turning the music being played to a visual spectacle and event in itself. Always turning the crowd into participants in a gypsy like traveling band, he’ll pull people from their seats and have them play the tambourine, shaker , clave or whatever he happens to have in his bag of tricks for the night.

 

In Lucky Mojo’s Words

 

I was adopted at birth. I always knew that. It was never hidden. That is the beginning of a long and difficult to process story that I choose not to talk about here. I’ve been told I should write a book, and honestly I have started one. I’ve done a lot of things, been a lot of places, met a lot of people and had a load of fun. I’ve held an address in Miami, New Orleans, New York and various others and gigged all around the Caribbean all on my entertainment skills, and had the most awesome time doing so in some of the most beautiful places on earth. Music to me is so important; it was my escape growing up. I enjoy all aspects of it. I love the blues, I’ve had a lot of them.

Cosmic Serenity – Radioactive (Cover) Scout Bar June 2013


I am so proud! My baby boy is the guy on the left playing the harmonica. He always loved music. I recorded him and his buddy, Bruce when they were ten playing in their own band. They were so cute! Maybe one day I will post it. I took him to Gruene Hall for his 19th. birthday and we saw the Fabulous Thunderbirds. It was so much fun. He and I always loved music. It was great seeing them in person. I am so happy that he is doing something that he loves to do. Your mother is proud of all that you have accomplished.

Edward Francis Linderman, 705 W. Third Street, Dubuque, Iowa

Shirley, Jimmie, Dickie, Gladys, and Edward Linderman~World War II~Dubuque, Iowa

Written by Roy Leonard “Jimmie” Nelson, Jr.

“Winter school work done in dining room next to coal burning pot belly stove. Heavy drapes to close living room off. House heated by registers, water circulated by furnace in basement. Coal storage room in basement to be hand fed to furnace. Sometime during W.W. II Grandpa had the furnace converted to oil fed. In the basement there was a vegetable room for canned foods, sacks of potatoes, and bags of sugar, etc…

There was a double sink to wash clothes, and one sink had a wringer. There was a four burner stove to heat copper boiler for washing clothes (hot water). Basement foundation large stones. They were white washed every summer.

Three bedrooms upstairs. Me & Grandpa across from each other, bathroom head of the stairs. Mom & Shirley & Dickie on cot in front bedroom and stairs to divided attic, basement, main floor, and upstairs attic.

Backyard, wall with 2 car garage one for storage & one for Grandpa’s 1937 Buick, 2 door. In the winter grandpa would take battery to basement to charge. He would open the door while he charged battery & run motor for a while to circulate motor.

During W.W. II Grandpa had the s/w radio on all day long so we knew what part of the world the fighting was going on. He got the Chicago Tribune with all of the war locations, etc.

When Grandpa was listening to the radio, reading, he used to roll Prince Albert out of the can. He smoked for years, he just up and quit.

3rd. Street was one of the steepest streets in Dubuque & Grandpa walked it after going downtown to the Stock Market. One day it got his wind, so doctor told him to stop smoking & he did.

Grandpa was a Jehovah’s Witness, a real bible study man. He knew a little about everything, a very smart man.

He did not like kids for years. Grandpa was a very frugal man because money was very tight when he grew up.

His lifetime employment was with the government out of Rock Island, Illinois. He used to cut down trees to use as wing dams to help control the Mississippi Spring floods. Later government dams to help control the floods from Minnesota to New Orleans, Louisiana.

Grandpa worked his way up to barge inventory from Rock Island, the main office still there today. Rock Island, Illinois Munitions Factory, is the only one on the river that still makes our machine gun bullets and bombs.

He got Uncle Arturo “Art” Ayala a job with the Rhode Island office. “Ari” started out sweeping floors & after many years worked his way up to Lock Master – Lock & Dam III- Dubuque, Iowa. That was neat because we could walk the dam to Wisconsin side. Pretty neat to see all of that water rushing through the locks.

When we were young, family and friends would catch a bus up to Eagle Point Park. It was beautiful place with lots of room for kids to play. Beautiful rock gardens, tennis courts, etc. There are several lookout places so you can see this Mississippi, Wisconsin & Illinois & Eppie & Art Ayala’s government house at the Lock & Dam. Good old days. That was quite a treat!

Grandpa turned out to be a very interesting person with contact with a variety of people. Before us kids came along, Grandpa had done a lot of traveling thru the Midwest, and Hot Springs, Arkansas. Surprise for me.

After I got out of the service (Korea period), 1950-1953, grandpa had changed & became the kind of person you’d want to visit with. Lucky me.”

March 1980, my mother, Jean Marie (Linderman) Frederick Mancill, my step dad, Louis Clifford Mancill, myself Sally (Frederick) Fallin, and Richard Wayne Fallin traveled to England, FranceBelgium, Holland, and Luxembourg together to visit Richard’s brother Jerry Glen Fallin.

He was in the U.S. Navy stationed in Newquay, Cornwall, England. I met my sister-in-law Frances Katherine Aherne-Conroy there.

I thank God that we traveled when we did, because I got a chance to spend a lot of time with my parents before they left me.

My Dad passed away in 2002, and Mother passed away just this past March 9, 2012 in Rosharon, Brazoria County, Texas. They are dearly missed.

You never really get over it, you just learn to accept death as a part of life, and enjoy the time that you have with each other. My only solace is that we are Christians, and I believe that we will meet again one day in heaven where there is no more sorrow, no more pain.
