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!

RE: Alline Jones memorial
Do you have a street name or section that it is close to - to narrow the search down some when we come up there?

RE: Charles W LIles Sr headstone
See e-mail from me. I believe you have birth date, birth place, and death date for Charles J Liles instead of Charles W Liles both of whom were born in Texas.

Please provide a map or information to locate the grave of Alline Jones and George E. Jones, memorial #45334515 in the Temple Cemetery. I am writing this for her son, Larry Provins. Thank you.

Birtha Leona Howerton Dalton
Thank you for transferring William Calvin Howerton. I have established a database for Baumgardner Cemetery on Tower Road. There are at least 12 readable tombstones there.
Will's daughter, Birtha Leona Howerton Dalton is still listed on Baumgardner Wilson Cemetery. If you would be so kind as to transfer her to me also, I would be very grateful.
Sincerely Gary Mullins

Thank you for the transfer. Have linked with family and dates for her. I appreciate all you do for Find A Grave. That is the only way I have been able to find graves, places where family is buried

Thank again

Baumgardner Cemetery
This small private cemetery is not easy to find or access. It is about 6 or 7 mils west of Baumgardner Wilson Cemetery. When the weather improves, I plan to photograph the existing tombstones and submit to Find-A-Grave.

William Calvin Howerton
I want to inform you of some errors. William Calvin Howerton was my great grandfather. He is not buried at the Baumgardner Wilson Cemetery at Howards Quarter. He is buried along with his wife and daugher Birtha at a Baumgardner Cemetery. Directions to Baumgardner Cemetery from Bean Station, TN.: Turn onto US-25E N and proceed about 15 miles. Turn right onto TN-33 N. Continue about 3000 ft and turn left onto Tower Road. In addition to Lillard and Polly Stratton, other members of his family are buried there. I would like to share what I know if you would be interested. Please call me at 423-923-1463.
