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!

Mindy Wylie
Wylie family
You added 3 (W.B., Terrassie and their daughter Mable) Wylie's a few years ago.
Do you have any more info on them? And could you tell me where you found their graves?
I have a scribbled note about them and had doubts whether W.B. is Mabel's father due to his age at her birth (63). We do have a William Brownlee Wylie in the cemetery at Tazewell, and he has the same year of birth and death, but different days. I think I was trying to figure out who he was when I went off on a tangent with these but couldn't figure them out either.

Avondale Cemetery. I was gonna ask you for these too as they are my direct relatives. Gene is my moms father, my papaw. I requested it from Tommy Wood. The others are his daddy and brothers I believe that I am requesting from you.

Ollie Williams memorial #40215591
Richard Dick Williams memorial #40216669
Thomas Williams memorial #40260427

Like I said before if you cannot transfer one or all it is completely understandable. Hope all is well with you and yours my brother. Thank you.

A couple more request

If you would be so kind as to let me maintain all these I would really honor these men and women by adding as much information and pictures that I can. I completely understand if you do not want to transfer one or all of them. You have already been so kind to me by transferring others over to me. Thank you cousin Rick.

Hello dear cousin Rick,

How are you my brother.? Anyway I was going to ask if you would transfer Elmer and Croshie Wells Woods to me. They were my great grandparents and Croshie lived to be almost 90 so I remember her well as I was almost 14 when she passed. I will put some pictures ofher up and add to her memorial if you are willing to transfer them. Thank you cousin Rick.

Dear sir,

Is there anyway I could maintain most of the Hipsher memorials.? I would be honored to maintain John Henry Hipshers memorial because he is my great great grandfather and I know alot about him and also have a photo of him and his twin brother that was taken when they were children. Im thinking it was taken in or around 1872. But I have alot of knowledge of my ancestors and am always researching them. Thank you and God Bless.
