I love genealogy!

"Genealogy begins as an interest, becomes a hobby, continues as an avocation, and, in the last stages, is an incurable disease."
   --Author Unknown


I live and work in Johnson City, Tennessee, but my roots are in eastern Hamblen County (near Morristown), Tennessee. My branches include Purkey, Nicholson, Riggs, Morelock, Meek, Karr, Taylor, Cocke, Courtney, Howington, Wisecarver, Williams, Thompson and more.


I especially like the poetic verse below -- the first line appears as an inscription on the gravestone of Thomas Cocke.

Tho' lost to sight, to memory dear
  Thou ever wilt remain;
One only hope my heart can cheer,—
  The hope to meet again.
     -- George Linley


If I manage a memorial(s) for someone who is in your direct line, I will gladly transfer management to you upon request.

I have created some memorials for persons who lived in and around Russellville, TN. I will be happy to transfer management to a family member.

Yes, she did teach first grade at Russellville Elem. for many years. I'm glad you remember her well. She was very helpful to me in my genealogy searches!

You are most welcome. Maggie's photos are posted so now you can add her birth and death dates .
I originally took these photos back in Fall of 2010 for a request. He or she never added the daughter's pages and I eventually got tired of checking back and eventually forgot about them, but they were ready to post.
Glad to help.

I am more than happy to transfer family members to other family members. People start to worry about me talking about cemeteries and such, till I tell them genealogy and other family members of them.
And strange...Your mother's name being June. My kids called my mother Nannie.
Have a good day.

Thanks for the update on Bruce being her maiden name instead of her middle name! Glad you straightened that up. Appreciate all your help.
