Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an O'Guin by birth. Our rare Irish name is a very special part of the Irish doesn't exist in Ireland anymore. We try to keep the apostrophe ' as a Badge of Honor wherever, 'whenever', we go :)

My female Cox line goes back to the founding of Rogersville, Hawkins County, Tennessee in the Cumberland Gap.

I have been working on my Family history for 25+ years. If it were not for volunteers adding memorials to Find a Grave, I wouldn't have made as much progress as I have. It is time to give back.

RE: Hardy O'Guin
I am curious as to the sources you found TJ O'Guin and Martha O'Guin as children of Hardy? I have seen no sources that support those being his children, if you could please share those with me?

Also, if you want the details of any family under Vernon Edward, I can fill most of that in with 100% absolute sureness, as I knew/know everyone personally.

RE: Hardy O'Guin
Then we are not that separated in family. Thomas Ura O'Guin is my great grandfather. My grandfather is one of his sons.

RE: Hardy O'Guin
I wonder if these are two separate Hardy O'Guin's we are looking for, or the same guy? Do you have a list of all the children of your Hardy? Or parents of? I am looking for Hardy the father of Thomas Ura O'Guin. He is my great-great-grandfather.

RE: Ruth Juanita Rudder O'Guin
I just confirmed by asking her living sister. Ruth Juanita's mother is in fact Ruth Cecelia Rudder. Ruth Juanita's father is confirmed as Mark Nathaniel Rudder Sr. This is via her sister Joyce. I don't know if this is applicable to your tree, but there it is. :)

Where are you on the tree? I assume you're a distant cousin or uncle of some sort?

RE: Ruth Juanita Rudder O'Guin
Ranny, I *think* that Ruth Cecilia is my grandmother's mother. She's also listed in some records as Ruth Lucille (a common enough variation of the name). I think she is Ruth Cecilia/Lucille Harvey (1904-1989). She was married to Mark Nathaniel Rudder SR (1905-1980).
If you go to and look at the
1940 United States Federal Census for Ruth H Rudder: it shows Mark Rudder with a wife Ruth H, children Ruth J, Mildred K, Mark JR, Jerry, Robert. I know I had an aunt Katherine, and I am pretty sure I recall someone named "bobby". If this is the right Cecilia, her parents may be George Thomas Harvey and Cora B. Joner.

Let me know if you can confirm and/or discredit any of those. I've only been doing genealogy for 3 days now. :) If you want to take a look at what I have so far, with a grain of salt, my username at is Phaewryn and my tree should be public.

RE: Ruth Juanita Rudder O'Guin
Hi Ranny! I have all her info on Would it be possible to just transfer her page to me, that way I can add the entire Rudder tree once I find someone local to go take grave pictures for me? Anyway, her name was Ruth Juanita Rudder O'Guin. Vernon Edward O'Guin was her second husband (my grandfather). Her first husband was Robert Franklin Kee. She has one son by Robert, but he is still alive. She has 3 sons by Vernon, and one of them is dead: Patrick Edward O'Guin, here are his stats: Born 08/29/1949, Dead 06/13/2004. I am 99% sure that Patrick is buried beside Ruth and Vernon, but I need to find someone who lives in the area to go photograph that to be 100% sure. If you can transfer me her page, I can add all of the Rudder side, and a lot of the Kee linage as well.

Ruth Clair DuRoss O'Guin
I am the granddaughter of Vernon Edward O'Guin and Ruth O'Guin. My grandmother's memorial here says her name was Ruth Clair DuRoss O'Guin, and I would like to know if that is 100% confirmed, and how. I recall her name being Ruth Juanita O'Guin, and people called her "Nita". Could her memorial here be wrong? Or am I wrong? I would very much like to know my family history, and my previous efforts have been to no avail, so it is possible that I have been wrong. Can you help me determine more? It has been many years since I have visited her grave, and i do not recall the engraving. I have moved far away since, else I would just go read her name off it. Do you live near Memphis? Have you seen her grave?
