I have had a lifelong love of family history and cemeteries. I routinely review old newspapers for obituaries and do my best to place a copy on Findagrave. It gives me a sense of accomplishment, whether I've created a record, or uploaded an obituary or photograph.
Each one of us who has this passion, is making a print on history. We are "preserving the past for the future". Family researchers who haven't been born yet, will silently thank us for our contributions.
To all my fellow contributors....YOU ROCK!!! :)
The surnames I research are: Atterbury (various spellings), Baber, Buster, Collins, Dawdy, Ford, Hollings, Kipper(s), Maxey, Meason, McGlothlen, Nickell, Nise, and Taylor.
Please visit my daughter's page. Her name is Jessica Stinson and she was my only child. Her Dad, Greg, died of pneumonia 4 months after she did. He knew he was sick, but I think he was so despondent after losing Jessica, he lost his will to live.
Collins family research Hello Vicki, My name is Karen Hunter Coe. I linked to your page via Rachel who left flowers on Amber Rayne Ardrey's page. I see you research Collins family info. Are any of your efforts in the Collins Family in the Fort Worth/Dallas TX area? I am in search of my birth mother (lost touch over 50 years ago). Her name at birth was/is Rachel Geneva Collins. Her father was Charley Arzie Collins. Thanks for any help you might have. Karen Hunter Coe.
