I was born and raised in West Frankfort, Il. My father and mother are Fred and Mildred (Southerland) Harkins. My family came from Alabama, Kentucky, and North Carolina. My husband's family came from Tennessee and North Carolina. I have been told that my ancestors originated in Ireland & Scotland,but I have yet to travel across the ocean on this internet or by any other means to substantiate it. I am getting close though! I am researching, Harkins, Green, Galloway, Misskelly, Crowell, Southerland/Sutherland, Sullivan, Newcomb, McDaniel, Guthrie, McClintock, Ice, Fleming, Martin, Willhite, Nolen, Reach, Carr, Yates, and Davis, to name a few. Any information or help on these surnames is most welcomed and I will be sure to do you the favor in kind.I am sure this FAG website is going to become a really fantastic site, especially if everyone takes special care when adding information concerning each soul that is memorialized. I am proud to be a part of this website and able to help people locate their loved ones and to learn all about them.If you want to use my photo's, you are welcome to do so, but recognition for them would be nice. If you don't agree with my findings and have documentation to prove I am wrong, please by all means feel free to let me know, preferably by email. If I make any mistakes, please let me know, but be nice about it. If you send me any edits, please send sources for them. I do a lot of research to make sure all the info on my memorials are correct.
