Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up on a farm in Scotts Hill, Tennessee. My hometown was settled in 1825 by my ggg grandfather Charles Austin. I earned a degree in engineering from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. My wife Pamela Wilson came from Panama City, Florida. We have lived in Memphis, Atlanta and have been in the Huntsville, Alabama area since 1987. My interest in genealogy took years to develop even though I heard many stories from my grandparents when I was young and never missed a family reunion. My father got interested in his Miller ancestors in the late 1980's but ran into some dead ends. After he died in 1993, I was given his papers. My parents had bought a book called The History of Scotts Hill Tennessee which a distant relative had written and contained an immense amount of genealogical data. As began to make a lot of data available, I decided to plunge in. My other hobby is growing native wildflowers.

Thanks for the find. I find them in the LA. 1900 census with the 2 children. I will delete the memorial.

Thank you for the corrected information, I have updated the dates and added your additional information to the bio section. If you would like me to transfer him to you I would be happy to, just let me know.

RE: Name
Hello Allan,

No, it does not have to be Wyczesany. Female forms of Polish surnames ending with "-y" could end with either "-y" or "-a", it depends on user's personal preference.

In this case, I followed the form used in Apolonia's obituary - this is how her family spelled it with "-a".

Kind regards,

Yes you can write a biography on them. If fact I will transfer your grandmother and grandfather to you. I do not know how to transfer them to you but I will learn if you would like for me to transfer.
