Hello, if you are a distant cousin & good luck; either way, your help is appreciated in providing information to our past, current and future kinships. Warm regards & God-Speed.
I was born in Natchez, Ms & attribute this family tree bug to an 8th grade history teacher who assigned me a project to collect 3 generations of my family. With the help of a dear grandmother (the only grandparent I ever knew) the project was completed & a new phase of our relationship began. She joined in my pursuit of better understanding my/our past for 20 years & I fondly remember how she got excited at every new discovery of her family roots; I continue in her memory.
I retired from the Navy Submarine Force as a Master Chief Machinist Mate Weapons (Torpedoman) & did a tour as a Chief of the Boat. My wife of 25 years is a Navy Veteran, our oldest son is a Marine Corp Veteran, & our youngest son is Active duty Navy.
On my paternal side I research the Arnold & Freeman Families & the family surnames they married in Franklin/Amite/Lincoln/Pike/Adams Counties, Ms. On my maternal side I research the Verbeck/Walker/Dungan/White Families of George/Jackson Counties Ms. & Clarke/Mobile Counties Al.
