Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Vaiden, MS, on Dec. 31, 1954 to Alf Trotter Collins and Juanita Hambrick Collins.

I lived in Vaiden, MS until 1979, Winona, MS until 1981, when I moved to Jackson, MS. In 1990, I moved to Florence, MS, where I still reside.

I have two wonderful sons, Sean and Cody, and I worked as a Level 2 Computer Field Technician for AmSouth Bank, In-House Technician for Trustmark Bank and Field Technician for CompuCom servicing 10 Lowe's stores in Mississippi.

I have an A.A. Degree in Pre-Law; a B.S. Degree in History with a Minor in English; and a Master of Social Sciences with an emphasis in History.

I have written and maintain 240+ web pages, including listings of the burials in the Vaiden Mississippi Cemetery (White) and the Vaiden Community Cemetery (African-American).

So far, my family history has been traced back to my 14th Generation Grandfather, John Collins I, who was the keeper of the Gael (prison) for King Charles I of England (son of James I - of the King James Bible fame). Other relatives include another King (Elvis).

Other hobbies include motorcycles, making music as a drummer, historical research, adding entries to Find-a-Grave (since 08/11/2000), and watching and collecting DVDs.


How To Write An Obituary

Remember me as you pass by,
As you are now, so once was I,
As I am now, so you must be,
Prepare for death and follow me.

RE: Jeremiah Mullican
Thanks but no. I'm not related or anything & I know you're very thorough so we will leave as is. Thanks for your help & all you do constantly for Find A Grave.

Are you able to add that Eric was also preceded in death by his grandparents, Manuel and Carolyn Pogue. Eric Pogue find-a-grave#92662564

Manuel and Carolyn were from Mississippi and are known in the area but hardly anyone would have any idea that Eric is their grandson.
Thank you.

Ron, in reply to your photo request for Richard Bridges there was no headstone, just a funeral home sign and an LSU flag. I took the picture of that. My question is do you want me to post it? Fran

Re: Herring
Thank you for adding Ichabod Herring this the memorial that I sent you but if you would just add her mother's name in the bio that would be fine... I can't locate her mother's grave at this time..Thanks for adding her father... Shawn
