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!

RE: Old Ryan Cemetery
If you don't mind I could take over management of #50202196 Benjamin Grubbs and #23279347 Sylvester Hughes. I've always had a soft spot for the child Sylvester and am so excited to now know where he's buried!!

Sorry to bother you, but I added the wrong picture to findagrave memorial #51149187,
William Petty. I put Thomas & Betty Petty on William. Will you please remove them from William.


So sorry for the inconvenience, cimfia

old Ryan/Baldwin cem
How would one get permission to enter the old Ryan/Baldwin cemetery? I am the GGGG granddaughter of Benjamin Grubbs and the child Sylvester Hughes is my great uncle. I would love to see them. Did Ben have a stone that wasn't photographed?
