|Bio and Links|
I was born in Vaiden, MS, on Dec. 31, 1954 to Alf Trotter Collins and Juanita Hambrick Collins.|
I lived in Vaiden, MS until 1979, Winona, MS until 1981, when I moved to Jackson, MS. In 1990, I moved to Florence, MS, where I still reside.
I have two wonderful sons, Sean and Cody, and I worked as a Level 2 Computer Field Technician for AmSouth Bank, In-House Technician for Trustmark Bank and Field Technician for CompuCom servicing 10 Lowe's stores in Mississippi.
I have an A.A. Degree in Pre-Law; a B.S. Degree in History with a Minor in English; and a Master of Social Sciences with an emphasis in History.
I have written and maintain 240+ web pages, including listings of the burials in the Vaiden Mississippi Cemetery (White) and the Vaiden Community Cemetery (African-American).
So far, my family history has been traced back to my 14th Generation Grandfather, John Collins I, who was the keeper of the Gael (prison) for King Charles I of England (son of James I - of the King James Bible fame). Other relatives include another King (Elvis).
Other hobbies include motorcycles, making music as a drummer, historical research, adding entries to Find-a-Grave (since 08/11/2000), and watching and collecting DVDs.

I think you misunderstood. I'm asking how you got the picture of him you already have on your website.

Thank you Ron for info on Mrs. Beaird's death. I try to avoid those pre-need, but when taking pix we never know! Happy graving for 2017 and thanks for all you do.

I wanted to make sure I had the correct name of the builder of the house and the year. James Simpson Collins and what year?
|Glen Foster||RE: Still searching for Josie|
Do you know where the Collins family grew up. Faye Herbert Oaks said that David Franklin Collins would drive by a house close to Hickory Grove Baptist Church on Hwy 174 (Carrollton Road) and between the Old Primitive Hardshell Baptist Cemetery and would say he grew up there. Thanks

James Simpson Collins, are you related to him?
I am told that John Franklin Collins is buried a the foot of "Son" Chambley 's grave at this cemetery. Information was via a relative of Billy Collins Mayor of Grenada Ms. I am going there soon with my Dowsing Rods t see if a body is there. Problem is I don't know who was know as "son".

Although I didn't add this Memorial this is my great grandfather and I have personally visited his gravesite. Just wanted to share in case you would like to update your records on him.
