I am a 45 yr old wife and mother of 5 sons. I have taught special education for the past 22 years and have been completely addicted to genealogy for the past 3 years. I am nearing the completion of my first family history book. The surnames that I am researching are Kopmann, Crozier, Briggs, Bartell, LeRoy, Borrowman, and Peck. I have come to appreciate the history that can be found in a cemetery. I have completed a class on cemetery restoration and preservation which have come in quite handy during some of my quests. I have made a couple of photo requests and do not mind "paying it forward" for others needing photos taken in my area. Being a teacher, however, summer is my time of greatest freedom and availability to help out.|

Do you remember the family that lived next door to your grandparents? We live in Hixson, Tn. Do you remember my son John? I hope I have the right person. I think I might be on face book with your mother? Let me know. Mary Newman
