Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Mike Watkins and have been studing History and genealogy over 40 years. After I retired from the U S Navy in 1988, I attended college at the University of Virginia to study History, then returned to Tennessee where I now own my Great Grandfather's Farm in Giles County, Tennesse. The lines I now study are Watkins, Petty, Sparkman, Bass, Marlin, Pinkard and Byas families all from Middle Tennessee. I am also interested in the Vandecar, Wright, Freeman and Palmer familes of Kent and Allegan Counties in Michigan.

PFC Carl E Mourer
Hello, I will be adding a photo of the grave marker for PFC Carl E Mourer from Rosedale Cemetery in Ottawa Co MI. I found his marker located in section CC. He is resting in the back row, near the fence. He is buried next to Albert T Mourer Nov 23, 1906 - Nov 5, 1952. Albert does not have a memorial. If you want to create one, I could add a photo for him also.

what email are you using. use this one, Thanks. Also I noticed on the birth and death dates you have for Rosie Autriss Watkins Smith are the same as my great grandma Maggy Lee Beverly who is buried beside Carlie Edward Smith, that is not Rosie I promise you my grandmother Mable Smith Hopkins Blue told me this is her parents, please fix this all and thanks so much.

RE: Carlie E Smith
Mr. Mike my email is if you don't mind will ya send me that marriage license. I think our Carlie's are one and the same. I have talked to another researcher who says she remembers Carlie. I am just concerned about the 2 graves listed on here one is the one you created and one is mine. I have a picture of his tombstone and used the dates off of it. I also have his obituary from my mother in law, who was his grand daughter. have you actually been to the cemetery or have you just used dates that someone has given you becasue like I said in my previous email the dates are very similiar.
