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!

Pvt. James Lockwood Canfield #33439800

Please consider moving the above Memorial back to the National Cemetery in Nashville, TN, as the Grove Hill Cemetery Memorial created by Pam & I is a cenotaph - or a Memorial to an interment in another cemetery. I don't believe the Civil War Pvt. Canfield is actually buried at Grove Hill! Thank you, Dave Jindrich

RE: Henry C Parker
Thanks for the rapid response Rick...Wasn't sure exactly how the memorials were maintained as to removal of inaccurate info....
I don't know this lady and cannot imagine why she would have put that info on this memorial..
Will try & contact her...

Thank You,
