|Bio and Links|
I began this journey to discover who my ancestors were, how they lived and where their dreams took them. As a very young child, I lived and dreamed myself inside the contents of three suitcases and two scrapbooks that were filled with photos and keepsakes from my parent's childhoods and glimpses of the grandparents I never knew. |
Yet...this was only the beginning.
I began my research just prior to the death of my mother in 2007 and it has become not only my favorite pastime, but almost my driving purpose. I had hoped to find many things when I started, but what I was not expecting was to find new family members, amazing cousins and a community of genealogist who are beyond generous, who take photos, share research and go above and beyond to help bring you closer to those who came before.
I am researching the following Surnames:
Silagy/Szilagyi (Hungary, Brooklyn New York, Gardena, California)
Lackey (McAlester, Oklahoma, Tupelo, Mississippi)
Riley (Pontotoc, Union, and Lee counties Mississippi)
Brown (Brooklyn)*Name change-Russell to Brown
Copeland (Lindale,Texas, McMinn, Tennessee, Walker, Georgia, Spartanburg, South Carolina)
Ogburn (Lindale, Texas, Henry, Tennessee)
Starr (Starrville, Texas, Macon, Alabama)

Of course, Robynne, I will transfer your great grandmother. We are required to do so when asked (4 generation transfer rule). I also have a Hungarian great grandmother named Rosa! (Actually, her birth name was Rosina but she went by Rosa.)
I can tell by reading your bio that you will take good care of her!
If there is anything else I can do for you, just let me know.
PS - Nice old photo of her!
Robynne... Do you have access to the Ogburn Family History written by Fielding Ogburn in the 1980's? I don't know if it's still available but you are welcome to use mine.
|Tim Prestage||George Washington Lackey|
I have transferred memorial #117241979 for George Washington Lackey. Let me know if you would like to have his wife Amanda #117241832 transferred as well.
Thanks for the photo!

Do you know the parents or more information on the Ruffin Family that is here.
1826 – 1918
I think the reference to R.E Buckley48516258 and Mamie# 29615360 is Richard Buckley who later also married Charity E Anding Mem# 48516342.
Thanks for any information.
Charlotte Ann Price
