Hello all! I am 18 years old and I am in search of my family history. My great-great grandmother, Lena Rapp, (who was marriedto August Speaker, I think) and her family moved to Hamilton, Texas from Germany in the early 1900's. It is my understanding that my great grandmother, Minnie Speaker, was already born. Minnie had a child, out of wedlock, before she married, with a man named Gene Douglas. This is my granny Alvine Speaker. Minnie Speaker married George Adkins (I'm not sure of his origin) and he adopted Alvine. George passed away about 12 years ago and Minnie passed away last year (1998). Alvine was married several times and had 6 children, my mother, Tena, is the youngest being born in 1960. Alvine had children with 3 different men. She had my mother, Tena Kathlene & Hubert Gean with Bobby Gean Hodges; Jo Ann, Arthur Joseph,& James Logan with Archie Boudreau; and the oldest Ellen May, but I am uncertain of her father. They grew up in Big Spring, Texas most of their lives. Bobby Gene passed away in October of 1981. His mother's name is Florence Kincaid & she was married to Hubert Davis Hodges. He has also passed, sbut she is still living in Big Spring at the age of 93.
I am in search of the Rapp, Speaker, & Hodges history. If you have any information that could help with my search please e-mail me. I have started a family tree in Family Tree Maker & if you feel that I may have any information that could help you, please feel free to take a look.
