Bio Photo Hello, if you are a distant cousin & good luck; either way, your help is appreciated in providing information to our past, current and future kinships. Warm regards & God-Speed.

I was born in Natchez, Ms & attribute this family tree bug to an 8th grade history teacher who assigned me a project to collect 3 generations of my family. With the help of a dear grandmother (the only grandparent I ever knew) the project was completed & a new phase of our relationship began. She joined in my pursuit of better understanding my/our past for 20 years & I fondly remember how she got excited at every new discovery of her family roots; I continue in her memory.

I retired from the Navy Submarine Force as a Master Chief Machinist Mate Weapons (Torpedoman) & did a tour as a Chief of the Boat. My wife of 25 years is a Navy Veteran, our oldest son is a Marine Corp Veteran, & our youngest son is Active duty Navy.

On my paternal side I research the Arnold & Freeman Families & the family surnames they married in Franklin/Amite/Lincoln/Pike/Adams Counties, Ms. On my maternal side I research the Verbeck/Walker/Dungan/White Families of George/Jackson Counties Ms. & Clarke/Mobile Counties Al.

If you have a correction, addition, or request a transfer please give me the Find A Grave Memorial # (FAGM#)& or the relationship to you by using the Send A Correction form on the memorial. Please add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as FAGM# links to parents, children, siblings, spouses & grandparents.

Send an e-mail to my personal account if you have alot of information as an attachment. Please provide the Name of the person & FAGM# if they have one in the subject line.

Though I retired from one job I still work full time so please bear with me and I will try to answer your request in a timely manner.

If you see something on a memorial you do not agree with please understand the information was probably provided by a family member and or is part of public record; newspapers, court records, etc. The intent is to honor your/our loved ones and to provide information that will help future generations better understand their families & lineage. Warm regards, Rodney

RE: George W. Dunn

Thanks for catching my typo...the correct year of William Thomas Dunn's death is 1867.

Artie Bell
Thanks for that edit suggestion! It hadn't even occurred to me that her maiden name wasn't on there! She was an Ellington :-)

RE: Woodard Smith
Yes, thank you. It's easy to get it confused because one was Trudie Minor with an "O" and the other was Trudie Miner with an "E". Also, the Trudie that Woodard was married to had remarried and her last name was Ellington when she died, so I can see how someone would make that mistake. But I am 100% sure that he should be linked to Trudie Minor Massey and not Trudie Miner Smith. Thanks again! And thanks for all you do for!

Ivy Ransom Freeman

Greetings from Arkansas. I'm guessing we are distant cousins. Archie Freeman would have been my great uncle.

I see that you are maintaining the record for Ivy Ransom Freeman. He was my dad's father. He died when my father was 14 months old. My dad (now 87) is the last surviving child of Ivy and Sarah Freeman.

Were you ever able to get a picture of Ivy? My dad has never seen a picture of his father and certainly has no memory of what he looked like. If you have pictures, it would mean a lot to be able to show my dad.

I look forward to hearing from you.
