|Bio and Links|
Retired Senior Marine Corps Officer (Mustang) living in Tampa Fla. Researching family history and trees for surnames Rich, Webb, Marshall, Mathis & Wofford.|
I have traced and documented my main family line (Rich) back to 1650 Virginia in Colonial America and many 3rd generation individuals participated in the revolutionary war.
The family arrived in Virginia in the 1650's from England and moved into North Carolina and then South Carolina, Georgia & Florida while others migrated west into Tennessee, Alabama, Texas & Illinois. Many family lines changed the surname "Rich" to Riche, Ritch, Reach and others,
It is an extremely large family & I have "documented" over 10,000 direct ancestors to date. I find a lot of personal history and like to add family members personal history & links.
I found many "family trees" in which the older ancestors were WRONG from simply following others previous errors and researchers focusing on their own branch. My goal became to document the ENTIRE family line in one complete database with supporting documentation for all.
When I join my ancestors in the long sleep my database and FAG memorials will be transfered to the Rich Family Assn. (RFA) for all to use.
If I request a memorial transfer be assured they are a close direct ancestor and it easier to make the updates, corrections & add links rather than burden you with that task.
I understand that you might have some "claim" to a memoral as a decendent BUT I would appreciate the transfer to keep the entire family line "in one easy to find place".
If you find a new "Rich" or variant gravesite, please let me know so I may assist you in research for the individual.
Donald Rich CWO-4, USMC (Ret)
If you need a photo in the Hillsborough, Manatee or Polk County Florida area, please let me know.

I don't know if you are kin to C.W. but that photo of you has a sort of Jack Webb resemblance!
Jets from your old stomping grounds at MCAS Beaufort were flying over the cemetery as I was taking photos.

You have them now. I did find another dup in the group with the numbers only 2 apart. Also, see that you got 2 from our foray down to Andersonville. Both Tenn lads. We lived in Tenn for 25 years, long enough to raise two kids. We took their children to Andersonville and photographed all Tenn., WV., Va., and Ct. vets that we could find before the batteries went dead.
The "Very Best" to you and all yours, Bud.
PS. Do not hesitate if you see any that I have put on that you would like to manage. BB

PPS. I read your bio and I have 33 Webb's in my stash. You are welcome to any or all. They are ones I have picked up along this journey. BB

Thanks. Mouse bounce for sure. Both numbers were vert close together.
If Don is family or friend and you would like to maintain his memorial I will be glad to put him in your hands.
Happy Researching, Bud
PS. I bought this house from a Lt. Comm. in the Navy 27 years ago. BB

Thank you so much for the links. I created this memorial from the death certificate and didn't realize who she was at the time. John Burgess Coffey is in my family tree, so she is related to me down the line a bit.
Thanks so much.

It is really nice to hear from a someone who found a family member in my contributions. It doesn't happen every day.
I am slowly working my way through the Ryan cemetery and will eventually bring it up to date. I started working on it just to add photos to the memorials that did not have one. But I quickly found that the cemetery only had about 10% of the interments in Find A Grave.
I am roughly 50% done. I poke through this work because I tinker with looking up documents to verify famliy links when it suits my fancy.
I am quite happy to transfer the Reach crowd to you.

Have made the changes. Thanks for the info. This is one cemetery which has been neglected.
Am glad to help.

Don, i am not the one that posted the headstone pictures. You have to contact the person that did. If you look under the pictures you will see who did it.

Thanks for the additional information it has been added to the memorial.
