Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired naval officer. I am addicted to genealogy. I love puttering around in cemeteries, even if I don't know any of the people there personally. I like to find and meet new cousins that I didn't know previously and share genealogical info with them. If you go back far enough, we are all cousins.

Families I am particularly interested in include:
Zellner, Coffey, Harrell, Welch, Hayes, Rucker, Hipsher/Hipshire, Lorenz, Slocum, and Adams.
I have a special interest in the genealogy of many of the families who settled in Grainger County, Tennessee. They intermarried early and often, and if you are kin to any of them, you are likely kin to all of them.
The Millers were Volga Germans who immigrated to the U.S.A. in 1875. I have lots of information on them and the other Volga German families they intermarried with. I am happy to share with anyone who is researching that area.

I am always happy to transfer to a relative, even a distant one (unless they are my relatives, too!). I don't mind managing all the records I have created, but I am more than happy to transfer them to someone else with a direct interest to manage.

Feel free to use any photo I have posted. I wouldn't have posted them, if I didn't want to share.

Good Hunting!

Thank You So Much
Rick,
I can't thank you enough for the transfer of the memorial for Napoleon Bonapart Weant at Temple Masonic Cemetery, Cotton County, Oklahoma. I have already added a bio, etc., and linked him to his father and wife.
Thank you for creating his memorial and for all that you continue to do. I will take good care of him.

RE: Steven Billy Crouch
Thanks for responding. As I state in my Bio: I am not a "stickler" for the guidelines as they are only guidelines. I try to place memorials with family and even good friends as they should be. I will make the transfer to you.

Blessings,
Grave_Walker

hipsher / collins
Hi Rick - my great aunt Emmaline Lillie Collins married a Morgan Hipsher. I believe Morgan's dad was Jessie Hipsher. They were all from the Indian Creek Road area of Grainer County.
My other East Tennessee kin are Jackson, McCoy, Wolfe, Cook and Collins.
I bet we are related somehow! :)
