She returned to school to complete her Bachelor's Degree in Drama from Sam Houston State University and a Master's Degree in Theater Arts from the University of Houston. She then taught high school theatre in the Conroe and Klein school districts until she retired.

She married James D. MacKie in 1994 and they lived in Florida and Colorado before returning to Texas. They enjoyed traveling extensively throughout the United States by motor home. On several trips they were joined by their grandchildren. In 2003 they moved to Montgomery, TX where she became involved in numerous activities including extensive genealogy research on her family which she greatly enjoyed, and serving on the Board of the Friends of the Charles B.

I was lucky to know Brownie in all stages of my life. First as a child growing up with her children. It wasn't until I returned from living in CA and we reconnected with one another on FB that I really got to know her. We shared many of the same thoughts and laughed about a lot of the same things. May she rip for she will missed.

Brownie and I taught at McCullough when it was a high school and I taught French. She was hilarious. She traveled with me and students to Europe. She was so creative in so many ways-- her amazing talents in the theatre and art were overshadowed, to me, by her personality. We shared so many laughs-from adventures in our classrooms to stories about our children. I wish that I had seen her recently to tell her how much she meant to me. Prayers for her and all of her family. I can only imagine how much you will miss her. I'm sorry for not seeing her obituary sooner.

There are no words to express the memories your mom has left in my life. She was such a unique lady with so many talents, loved her kids and grandkids so very much and every conversation I had with her included something one of you did or were doing. She shared her love of the theater with me on several occasions giving me tickets to her performances in Conroe Little Theater and shared the funny things happening behind the scenes upon returning from practices while I had fun watching all four of you. You all have left special memories for me throughout my life and it has been a joy knowing your mom, your dad and each of you - especially seeing you as adults. My love and prayers as I know you will miss her and her humor.

Lips, Walter Wiegand Hans Erich (P5596)
He emigrated to America illegally in 1834
(The date of death entered afterwards could refer to his father)

The church records do not show entries of Heinrich Carl or his father Johan George's death. Only at the birth entry I found a later added remark, that he died on February 2, 1836. This is the usual way of indicating death of a person born in Gottsbüren, but not passed away there. On the other hand, there is no proof for this. It might be, if people got lost this (non official) entries have been made. Since I could not find an death entry on his father too, it might be possible that they emigrated to America. This means, that after the death of Anna Catharina in 1835, they decided to emigrate a year later in 1836. Ernst had to go back to his father and his step-mother, which was very difficult time for him. So he decided to follow his grandfather and uncle to America. (Theory) They may have left from Bremen, Germany.

He was found in 1850 in Baton Rouge census as Charles H. Neimeyer.

In 1860 Charles is still living in Baton Rouge. The census states he is a master carpenter and from Hess Cassel. He is 43 years old.In 1870 he is living in Kansas City 2nd Warld county of Jackson state of Missouri. Luisianna is called Lucy and Charles is called Charley. Charles is a distiller instead of a carpenter, George is a distiller and Henry is working on distilling. Their birth states are not consistent with the previous census. There is a domestic servant from Prussia , Annie Hofer and a saloon prpr Hohn H. Varnecke from Pressia.In 1880 Charles is living in Virginia City, Storey,Nevada with his wife Elizabeth and daughter Louisa A. Charles is 73, Elisabeth is 57 and Louisa is 21. Charles is a carpenter again. Next door is living his son George and wife Mary and Children, Charles F., George H. and Lula Ella

Subject: NIEMEYER Family Photograph

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Phoebe Antoinette NIEMEYER b. 24 March
1892 and her maternal grandfather, Henry James Thomson FLINT. The photo was
taken in 1893 or 1894 when Phoebe was just a child and Grandfather Henry
appears to be 60+ at the time. This photograph was taken in Utica, Oneida
County, NY, however, Phoebe and her parents, Minnie Elsworth FLINT b. 19 Nov
1858 and Charles H. NIEMEYER were from Florence, Pinal County, Arizona.
Charles and Minnie were married in Florence, AZ on 10 June 1891, so Phoebe
was likely their first child.

In addition there is a photograph of Henry's wife, Antoinette STICKNEY taken
at Rochester, NY in the 1870's when she was 45 years of age. I'm hoping to
find family interested in having the photograph back in its rightful place
with the family. If you are a member of this family, or know someone who
might be, please contact me.
