Exploring Family History

I am happy to share the discovery of my relation to the Parker family of Browsholme Hall.

Browsholme Hall, Yorkshire

Browsholme Hall, Yorkshire

The Parker surname is a new addition to the origination of the Clements family lineage which I have been able to research in a little more detail recently. Browsholme is an extremely beautiful estate located in Yorkshire, England.  It is currently a popular Wedding Venue due to it’s charm and history. Browseholme was built by my 13th great grandfather, Robert Parker, born 1527, for his wife, Elizabeth Chadderton of Northurst, Lancaster.  She was the heiress of John Redmayne.

Nona Mae Clements Maxwell

05 Apr 1917 – 08 Jul 2013

Rest in Peace 

My great grandmother, Nona Mae Clements Maxwell, passed away yesterday morning at St. John’s Hospital in Missouri. She was a wonderful woman, loved by many, and lived a long and full life.

Nona was born April 5, 1917, in Missouri. Daughter of Chesley Clements (1872-1924) and Lillian Emma Hinze (1881-1922), she was the second oldest of  seven children.  By 1935, she married James Richard Maxwell (1913-1990).

Preceding her in death are her husband James Maxwell, seven siblings, grandsons Justin Tevis Maxwell & Craig Miller, and great grandson Craig Maxwell. She leaves behind three children, 11 grandchildren, over 18 great grandchildren, and four great great grandchildren.

In celebration of Memorial Day, I have posted some of the WWI Draft Records I’ve collected from our family tree.

I spent a great deal of time this past weekend scanning childhood photos from a big red album. These are photos from my childhood. I have tried to order them chronologically, but I still have to go through each one and see if the back of the actual photo has any description/date that I can reference. Because of the size of this gallery, most of the photos have not yet been titled or tagged. I am hoping to do this incrementally over the next week.
