Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired naval officer. I am addicted to genealogy. I love puttering around in cemeteries, even if I don't know any of the people there personally. I like to find and meet new cousins that I didn't know previously and share genealogical info with them. If you go back far enough, we are all cousins.

Families I am particularly interested in include:
Zellner, Coffey, Harrell, Welch, Hayes, Rucker, Hipsher/Hipshire, Lorenz, Slocum, and Adams.
I have a special interest in the genealogy of many of the families who settled in Grainger County, Tennessee. They intermarried early and often, and if you are kin to any of them, you are likely kin to all of them.
The Millers were Volga Germans who immigrated to the U.S.A. in 1875. I have lots of information on them and the other Volga German families they intermarried with. I am happy to share with anyone who is researching that area.

I am always happy to transfer to a relative, even a distant one (unless they are my relatives, too!). I don't mind managing all the records I have created, but I am more than happy to transfer them to someone else with a direct interest to manage.

Feel free to use any photo I have posted. I wouldn't have posted them, if I didn't want to share.

Good Hunting!

RE: Treva Dotson
In the 1900 census she is listed with her parents and the birth date is given as May 1894 and listed as Tiera in the 1910 census and age is indexed as 16 (1894). Her parents were married on the 20th of August 1893 in Montgomery County, Indiana.

I hope that this help. I have not found a birth record for her, yet.

Are you related to him? His grandmother was the sister of my dad's great grandfather. I know his mother and was wondering if you were not related to him... could you please transfer his memorial?

Hannah Roach/Rouch Joyce, was married twice, her 1st husband, who she married in 1861, was John C. Ferguson/Forguson (1841-1863) He was in the 8th TN Calvary, and died during a battle - burial unknown. Her 2nd husband was John Parrott Joyce (J. P.), whose parents were from NC and settled for a time in Grainger County, but moved on to Trigg Co., KY. J. P. and Hannah were married in Grainger County, 11 Mar 1869. I cannot locate them in any records between April of 1869 and the 1880 census, where Hannah and the boys are in Grainger County. She is listed as a widow, but more than likely I think shes divorced. J.P. died in 1889, and is buried in Trigg County. I had sent to you a few link edits, which you excepted the links to the boys, but not to J.P., which is why I gave you the above history. Thanks.

RE: S Bain
I've had the same trouble. I view on Adobe, crop slightly and save and it seems to solve the problem. Sounds like a clitch somewhere in the system.
