"Thanks so much for putting together this excellent site! I was amazed to see you had 'Ace' Texas listed! Romayor is the next 'blink your eye you'll miss it' spot in the road. I actually grew up about 6 miles 'back in the woods' from there, across the Trinity River Bridge. It always amazes me when the area is mentioned anywhere. Your site is fantastic. We need more 'Texas' sites. Good job, well done. Dena Jackson Burrows "

Ann from California writes:
"You should have your map on US GENWEB! Every state should have this! I was able to use locality as clues for finding ancestors and their close proximity to each other. My Gr. Grandparents were being raised as children in neighboring counties and then met and married. We had completely lost all contact with these lines as my Dad's mother was killed in an auto accident in 1931 (he was 5) and never saw any of her family again. THANKYOU!!!!!!!!!! "

"How delightful to see my name on your site! My ancestors are from Texas and though I was born in Oklahoma, I have deep roots in your state. We lived there off and on for 9 years and visit every chance we get. I will perform in Blanco Sept 20 and Tioga Sept 27...we are always looking for reasons to cross the Red and spend time there. I am also the mother ot a Native Born Texan, with my son being born in Fort Worth. Thanks for all you do to promote Texas and Texas related events as well as Cowboy Poetry! We appreciate you!
Debra Coppinger Hill "

Hal Swift from Sparks, Nevada writes:
"I'm pleasantly surprised to find myself listed on your site. Obviously, you know your way around the world of cowboy poetry, and I'm flattered at your kind comments about mine. Thank you for that. By the way, I lived in Austin when the Armadillo closed. It was a sad time for a lotta folks. One of my poems, "Tex" gives some of the flavor of the place. It really was a Texas Landmark, and the brief life it lived truly left a legacy for many. "Tex" is online at CowboyPoetry.Com. Thanks again for your kind words. Hal  "

"I was born in Oklahoma but raised in different towns of Texas. Wichita Falls and Borger, Texas. My parents left Borger when I was 17 yrs old for California --- better jobs. I miss my home town of Borger and I miss California. I think that Texas has the best Web sights ever. "

"Just wanted to tell ya, that your site is Great! It shows your passion for this State of our's... and from one native Texan, to another...That's a beautiful thing.
