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!

Hi, I was looking at Minnie Louella Welch,#46634937 buried in the Walters Cemetery. My family lived in Cotton County, the Welches. My ggrandfather was Minor C. Welch. His brother was William Jackson Welch. Any info. on these families is appreciated. I don't think this Minnie is William's daughter, she was born 1887 and died 1951. You can message me at Thank you.

Thank you for sharing birth, death and full names for Zellner children buried in Pilgrims Rest Cemetery, Etowah Co., Alabama. When Maggie put markers in the cemetery, she did not have dates included. Appreciate your information!
