Bio and Links
Bio Photo In 1979 my father gave me an old photo of my grandfather taken in 1916. This sparked an interest in old family photographs. My mother add about twenty more to my collection, by then I needed to know who these people were and how they related to me and each other. This was the beginning of my genealogy.
I got interested in find-a-grave when I stumbled across a family members memorial while searching
for family information. I became a member when I realized I had photographs of family members I could post on there memorails. My involvement has only gotten greater as time passes. This inspired me to search for a couple lost family cemeteries that I did find and have now posted as the Old Nichols cemetery and Highfill/Taylor cemetery.
It has been a very rewarding experience.

The "Kid"
I would love to read the bio and maybe make a suggestion or two. My email is I have been driving my wife crazy the past few days while I have been sitting at the computer researching The Kid. Whenever I bust out laughing, she says to me, "Okay, what did you find out now?" He was "The Real McCoy" indeed, larger than life, stranger than fiction, and to a writer, a gold-mine of never-ending material. The gift that just keeps giving. Take care now Pat, and have a great day!

Kid McCoy
Hi: Thanks for responding. I read your bio on Big Jim Holohan, and it is obvious you don't need any help in writing. Very nicely done. If I were you I would probably write one for the Kid too, and re-submit it for famous consideration. He was quite a character. I write detective novels and some historical fiction and have the Kid in mind for a project I may be working on by the first of the year. The nice thing about the Kid is . . . you can't make that stuff up! He was literally larger than life. I was born and grew up in Detroit and thought about him almost quite often walking by the old Tuller Hotel. Thanks again for all you do on Find a Grave. Take care.

Hi: I have been researching this gentleman and his professional ring career. Quite an individual! I wonder if he is a member of your family? Also, if you would be interested, I would love to write a bio for him, so his page could be submitted for famous status consideration. He most certainly was! Thanks for your time.

RE: Archibald Lee Fuller
You're welcome. Sorry we couldn't find it but there are so many sandstone headstones in the cemetery and none of them are legible.
