Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Vaiden, MS, on Dec. 31, 1954 to Alf Trotter Collins and Juanita Hambrick Collins.

I lived in Vaiden, MS until 1979, Winona, MS until 1981, when I moved to Jackson, MS. In 1990, I moved to Florence, MS, where I still reside.

I have two wonderful sons, Sean and Cody, and I worked as a Level 2 Computer Field Technician for AmSouth Bank, In-House Technician for Trustmark Bank and Field Technician for CompuCom servicing 10 Lowe's stores in Mississippi.

I have an A.A. Degree in Pre-Law; a B.S. Degree in History with a Minor in English; and a Master of Social Sciences with an emphasis in History.

I have written and maintain 240+ web pages, including listings of the burials in the Vaiden Mississippi Cemetery (White) and the Vaiden Community Cemetery (African-American).

So far, my family history has been traced back to my 14th Generation Grandfather, John Collins I, who was the keeper of the Gael (prison) for King Charles I of England (son of James I - of the King James Bible fame). Other relatives include another King (Elvis).

Other hobbies include motorcycles, making music as a drummer, historical research, adding entries to Find-a-Grave (since 08/12/2000), and watching and collecting DVDs.

PLEASE CHECK FIRST TO SEE IF ENTRIES HAVE ALREADY BEEN ADDED AND MAKE SURE THAT ANY MARKER PHOTOS AND DATES ARE LEGIBLE.

How To Write An Obituary

Remember me as you pass by,
As you are now, so once was I,
As I am now, so you must be,
Prepare for death and follow me.

TY SO much for the helps on their memorials. Had several things wrong and what you sent not only corrected but fleshed out the bios so much. I did change the Drane Bell reference as I now ONLY put maiden name in that field & for multiple marriages place the former married names in bio instead. Pls take a look and if you think it needs to be more clear in bio just send & I will insert more detail. Happy graving in this wonderful weather and again TY!

RE: Ola Wilson McBrayer
I'd appreciate anything you have because I have a lot of contradictory information and am trying to sort it out. My e-mail address is on my contributor's profile. Thanks in advance!

Ron, I am working on trying to unravel the family. I recently started with an obit for Austin's daughter Mary Ella and have been working with another researcher on trying to sort out who is who. Family records from another cousin call into question what has been reported in the past. Austin and Hoyt were two of maybe eight children born to Joseph Tally McBrayer and Mary Rebecca Gilbert. Perhaps we can share some data directly.

RE: Abb Morgan Henry Jr.
Yes, your addition was correct. Thank you for connecting those for me. I'd like to add their deceased daughter Betty Zane Henry Bishop to the links of their children as well. Do I need to contact the sponsor of her page? Or can I do it myself?

Abb Morgan Henry Jr.
Ron,

How can I link Abb Morgan Henry Jr.'s record as a child to Abb Morgan Henry Sr.'s page, which I now manage?

Thanks,
Charlotte
