Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Mike Watkins and have been studing History and genealogy over 40 years. After I retired from the U S Navy in 1988, I attended college at the University of Virginia to study History, then returned to Tennessee where I now own my Great Grandfather's Farm in Giles County, Tennesse. The lines I now study are Watkins, Petty, Sparkman, Bass, Marlin, Pinkard and Byas families all from Middle Tennessee. I am also interested in the Vandecar, Wright, Freeman and Palmer familes of Kent and Allegan Counties in Michigan.

armstrong ancestry
Hi Mike......saw your posting and photo of Blanche Armstrong from Kent Co Michigan. My Armstrong family were all from that area at that time. I don't know a Wilson, but then I have been discovering more and more of my relations as I go. Please let me know if you have any records of Armstrong relations to Wilson.....brothers, sisters or parents to see if I can any of my tracings and connect up with him

Mr Mike would you mind sending me that pic of Carlie and his family that you mentioned so that I may show it to my aunt Juanita, so that we may figure all this out, thanks so much.

PFC Carl E Mourer
Hello, I will be adding a photo of the grave marker for PFC Carl E Mourer from Rosedale Cemetery in Ottawa Co MI. I found his marker located in section CC. He is resting in the back row, near the fence. He is buried next to Albert T Mourer Nov 23, 1906 - Nov 5, 1952. Albert does not have a memorial. If you want to create one, I could add a photo for him also.
