Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.


How To Write An Obituary

Remember me as you pass by,
As you are now, so once was I,
As I am now, so you must be,
Prepare for death and follow me.

Mollie Wilson
Through research and it is verified on her obituary on Find A Grave # 5833305 that her father was Smith Davenport Kent. Her full name is Mary Louisa "Mollie" Kent Wilson. I am still looking for her mother, who was the first wife of Smith Kent. According to family search records Louisa died in 1862, when Mollie was about 15 months old. Smith Kent then married Mary Frances Huntley and the sisters listed on her obituary were actually her step sisters. My gig grandmother Narcissa Eudora Kent was her sister. I left and edit to connect Mollie with her father, but I have not found her mother, Louisa Townsend Kent at this time.

Ron looks like Memorial #108028315 is the same person only different cemeteries. Could this grave have been moved?

Just checking.. we want the information to be correct. Maybe you can check with the person who put in the other memorial.
