About this site

This site was created to provide a means to share information discovered in the pursuit of family history and genealogy research.  The stories are sourced during family research and could be of interest to others whose ancestors shared the same experience.  All of the lives and events become threads in the Fabric of Ancestors.

The Fabric of Ancestors

You may have heard a question the last time you were with relatives. You may have
seen a recent television program about finding ancestors. The curiosity may be there
but you just don’t know where to start. My experience in researching genealogy and
history can save you some time.  Crossing history with our ancestor’s dates, we can
enhance the background that gives you more than names from your ancestor’s lives.
From a known person you might want to discover a few generations. Or, you may have collected some basic family information and don’t quite know the next steps. Contact me with your questions.

I am available to provide services for you. My experience is based in years of genealogical research as I continue searching my own Family lines, other extended Families, and research for Clients.  With more understanding of the stories of history with ancestors, our vision of the details of lives gone before continues to lead to the discovery of the threads that make up the Fabric of our Ancestors.

About the author

My name is John Suter.  My research in the realm of genealogy has been ongoing for quite a number of years.  The work on my paternal lineage began with research started by a Great Uncle, an Uncle, and my Father.  My maternal line research also began with information documented by cousins and ancestors.  I continue this research, now with the added benefit of many digitized records available through the Internet.

My fascination with the study of history and families continues to grow as I pursue the details of lives gone before.  The more families I research, the more lives, faces, and places there are to visualize in the colorful Fabric of our Ancestors.

Some of the discoveries uncovered during my research are written in my Stories on this site.  And, as a Texas resident of Fort Bend County now for a number of years I also write about the people and history of that County on the The Fabric Of Fort Bend.  You can find managed pages of links for History and Genealogy resources I maintain on a website at ThirdPort.com.

    Mr Suter

    I enjoyed reading about Fort Bend county history on your site. Particularly how you have shown where things used to be and are still underfoot.

    I am a native of Richmond. My father was born in the town of Wharton and my mother was the daughter of Czech immigrants who settled outside of Temple, TX.

    I currently reside in Sugar Land and recently made a Sunday afternoon visit to the Varner-Hogg plantation in West Columbia.

    This peaked my interest in our local “Sugar Bowl” history and I also learned about West Columbia and the part it played in early Texas history. You’d never guess it, driving through West Columbia now.

    Very interesting stuff! I then ran across your site. It fascinates me how the history is still all around us. Also a bit frightening how kids in our area are so oblivious to most of it.

    When my daughter was being taught her Texas history in Middle School, I do not believe anyone was aware of all the history around them; particularly right up the road in Richmond.

    I have been “digging up” things so to speak (mostly just by googling) and found your site very interesting and informative. I have found a renewed interest in my Texas roots! My middle daughter and I like to visit places of interest (mostly art installments) in the Houston area. We call these our “magical mystery tours.” Just checking out some cool things around the city. I am now planning on doing what I will call our “magical history tours.” In hopes of educating my grown kids and my teenager on some of the forgotten history of our area.

    I feel this is the least we can do in remembrance of the early settlers.

    Thanks again for your very well done site.
