My nice Lady Boss did a radio interview this AM for the Burkett HS Reunion next weekend. I missed the interview, so I emailed the station to get their “stream” address. Unfortunately, they don’t currently have one, so I couldn’t listen to her interview. BUT…the interviewer, Station Manager, signed his name when he answered my email…and it was a family name I recognized!!!
SO…I emailed him again, asked him if he was related to the folks in Brownwood.
Joe is a Haynes, I was a Cavel. We’re both distantly related to the new Mayor of Brownwood, TX. There was a great, great Aunt Pauline still living in Brownwood several years ago that I visited with…she was a Daughter of this Cavel-Haynes union.
Just a little walk down the genealogy path…and a reminder of what a small World we live in! I didn’t know I had ANY relatives here and I’ve now come in contact with 2 GGAunts, 2nd and 3rd cousins…and now, Joe. How cool is that?
