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!

Hi Rick,
Just wanted to thank you for adding Louise Dolman to the Temple Cemetery in Cotton County, OK. She was born and raised 1/2 mile down the road from me and is a distant cousin. Her brothers and their children have been very dear friends to me. I sent you an edit to get her linked up with her parents and husband.
I can tell from your bio that you are a very dear soul and are in it for the same reason Pam and I are--to help other people find their ancestors.
Thanks for all you do and for your service to our country. Louise's husband died in WWII in the North African theater and her father Bryant Pittman died in WWII as a Japanese POW in the Pacific Ocean. The war was hard on her and her family as it was for many.
Thanks Again,
Pam Metzger and Teresa McMinn
Choctaw County, MS

You have Hubert Lincoln Huskey listed on your page as having died on October 31, 1964 in Ryan, Oklahoma from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. I am looking for any information you have on him. Thank you.

RE: Nathan P Dalton memorial number 99765933
Hey Rick. 10-4 re Nathan.

Apparent birth date conflict vis a vis his brother, Perry & sister Martha Greenlee (Find A Grave Memorial# 41524779). Possible, I s'pose, that they were born in same year, but...

Good morning,
I would like to know if you would transfer management of her memorial to me? Lily is the mother of my grandmother, and I have been just recently been working to update the memorials of my beloved family members. I would be interested in managing all of the Richeson's in this family: William I., Mary Katherine, Golda, Jesse and Pearl. Thank you in advance,sincerely,
