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!

Farrar and related families
Thanks for your note, Rick.
It is hard for me to remember everyone's relationships. Thanks very, very much for all of your help with getting the other Farrar's developed and further organized. If you come across any further info that you think would be helpful to add, or any additional photos that you think would be good additions, please let me know. We can see that they get added. Hope you have a fun Halloween, with some entertaining Trick or Treaters.

O B Addington & Clarence L Adams
I was looking at graves in Addington Cemetery. I grew up visiting there with my grandmother, Hazel L. Addington, Adams, daughter of Daisy Adams, Addington. The baby O B Addington was the son of Daisy & O B (Daddy Burrel) Addington. Clarence L. Adams was the son of Hazel L. Addington, Adams & Clarence L. Adams, my grandparents. Both those two graves should be inside of a retainer wall with Daisy Addington & Leon Addington who was also a son of Daisy Addington & O B Addington. My grandmother is probably turning in her grave right now that the information is linked to Leon's grave. That was a hush hush subject in the family, although we all found out a lot about it.
