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!

Mr. Miller; Would you be so kind and transfer to me the memorial of David N. Heath, Find A Grave # 33787150. He is my 2nd great-grandpa Daniel M. Heath's 1st cousin. I would like to build a profile on Heath's Chapel Church and the many relatives I have buried there. I would appreciate it very much.

Thanking you in advance.

First, let me say that your profile and mine read about the same. Really weird reading someone else's profile and looks like yours. Ha!

B.F. McWatters Find A Grave #45035928 is my wife's Grandfather.
Frances McWatters Find A Grave #45035899 is her Grandmother.
Nannie Mae McWatters Find A Grave# 45035854 is her Aunt
If possible I would like for them to be transferred to me Find A Grave # 47014704 as I have more information since I too am into Ancestry work.

As you say, when we really look at all the names in our trees, we really are all cousins to each other. Point in fact is that my wife was given away at birth and was raised by a Miller all her life. Her Biological mother came from St.Jo, Texas and her adopted family came from Colorado City, Tx. It gets more interesting later. Ha!
Thank you for all you do for Find A Grave and like you I really enjoy this stuff.
