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.

About the author

My name is John Suter.  My research in the realm of genealogy has continued for quite a number of years now.  The work on my paternal lineage began with research done by my a Great Uncle, an Uncle, and my Father.  My maternal line research also began with a good bit of knowledge 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.

Along with this site, I also write occasional pieces about my local County on The Fabric Of Fort Bend  and 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.
