|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 parents childhood 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 NY, Gardena, Los Angeles, CA)
Lackey (McAlester, Pittsburg, OK, Tupelo, Lee, MS)
Riley (Pontotoc, Union, and Lee, MS)
Brown (Brooklyn NY)*Name change-Russell to Brown
Russell (Brooklyn NY)
Knight (Brooklyn NY, Providence RI)
Copeland (Lindale, Smith, TX, McMinn, TN, Walker, GA, Spartanburg, SC. )
Ogburn (Lindale, Smith, TX, Henry, TN)
Starr (Starrville, Smith, TX, Macon, AL)

Hi Robynne I am researching the Copeland family. My Great Grandmother married Robert Copeland. In looking up family I found your memorial page on Elizabeth #28668653, and I found a second one of her also #60527034. It was done October 23, 2010 by Bonnie, a couple years after your memorial page. I know Find A Grave does not want 2 of the same memorials. Thought you'd be interested. Your page has more information that the 2nd one. Good luck!

|Joan Turner||RE: Riley's|
Thanks for responding to my message. I'm looking forward to your email.
I read with interest that you are researching the Riley family in northeast Mississippi. I am related on my mother's side of the family to Riley's in Tippah and Marshall County and a direct descendent of the Revolutionary War soldier John Riley. I have compiled a record of John's lineage, and I would be glad to email you a copy if you think it might be helpful in your research. I don't have a family website at this time but plan to build one soon. If you would like to contact me, I can be reached at the email address listed.
Wow what a surprise to find this site and see for the first time a picture of my grandfather. I am the son of Van Lee Riley Sr. I just happen to see this site and we must be kin in some way. Any information you can give me about the Riley side of the family would be appreciated. I do not have to much information but would love to hear from you.
Bill Riley son of Van and Gladys Riley
