  1. Hi, Betty,
    I know you still miss the light of your life. My condolences.

    Now what brings me to this point? I am doing genealogy by DNA and have found two of Doug’s cousins, descendants of Henry Franks of Coryell Co. Jim Logan and Arthur Brink. Don’t leave your spit anywhere you don’t want to be traced from. Actually, I just Googled “Doug Beyer” and there was his obit in a second’s time.

    One of your neighbors from Comanche, my home town, was James Ory Grigsby. He was deep into genealogy.

    I’m sort of like James Ory, I’m well, but I’m sick and no doctor can get me well, yet. I may go to Scott and White, as James Ory did, I think. One big difference is that I eat–too much. Weigh 40 lbs more than you saw me last.

    I live just north of downtown Dallas, close to the genealogy library. In an apt tower, sixth floor. Robin lives up US75; she has a boy 16 and a girl 14. She’s the smart one of the family.

    Just want you to know about your kid’s DNA. I’m wondering about the name of the Mrs Standard in Abilene, Shirley? She’s the one that probably told me that Doug was a Franks descendant.
