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.

Thanks so much for all of your help. I really appreciate it. I'm afraid I am approaching a dead end on this one. Thanks again

My name is Mike McCarthy and I have done some research on James Henry Stith and found that he is buried in the Stith family plot in Vicksburg. Could you please tell me the name of the cemetery and perhaps an address. I will include a link to the FIND A Grave Memorial on him. thanks so much.

Jack Howard
Ron, just wanted to let you know that I added a headstone photo to Mr. Howard's memorial page (73536910) and added his wife Roberta who is buried with him. The headstone has Jack's birth year as 1926, Fran

Sydney Albert Blackwell
Hi, I just want to let you know that you have the wrong birthdate for Sydney Albert Blackwell. His tombstone has 8/11/1900 and you have 8/11/1886. He was actually born in 1899 based on his WWI Draft Registration and the 1900 census. You might want to put that information on the website.

Thanks, Rhonda

I mistakenly hit the fulfill button for this memorial. I had taken a picture of his brother's and not his. However, the military tombstone is the only marker for him. He is basically at the foot of his brother William's grave. Sorry for the mistake. Didn't know if you wanted to request a photo again, but there is not another marker for him to solve the spelling problem.

Yes, it is a duplicate, but I won't delete it. I'll let some site administrator do that. Mine gives much more details based on his obituary. What's the purpose of Find A Grave? To see who can get their first with the most grave sites or to preserve a person history? After reading the story of his life they way his family wrote it, this is probably the way the want him to be remembered.

Thank you for the duplication notification on Mr Charping. When I typed in his name it wouldn't come up in the search for some reason or other. I have deleted my memorial.
