Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an O'Guin by birth. Our rare Irish name is a very special part of the Irish Diaspora...the name 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.

The memorial you set up for Barbara Ethel Crook in Mary's Chapel Cemetery is a duplicate of memorial #93812337. Please delete your memorial.

Thanks for all you do for Find A Grave.

I believe we've written in the past. I'm looking at O'Quinns of NC. I'd like to email you some more about them.

Hi, Randy: So nice to hear from you. I am sorry for not getting on Find a grave as much as I should, however, I broke my left shoulder several months ago, and had three surgeries, leaving me with nothing but one muscle in my shoulder--I will never have normal use of my arm again. Therefore, due to pain, and weakness, it is difficult to type for very long - I just recently started getting interested in genealogy again as I can peck around on the computer now. Please keep in touch - we have a lot more to share.

RE: O'Guinn's
Hey there Randy, great to hear back yes i was able to find out alot more info....

I guess the reason Constance is listed as a sister of Hubert in his obit must be because they we're raised together as both of there mothers died so young and the O'Guinn's raised them as there own basically..... here is Hubert's obit

The Flint Journal, Thursday, February 4, 1960 Page: 37

COLLIER - Hubert, Collier, 1371 Schafer Dr., age 43, died Wednesday, Feb, 3, 1960, at Hurley Hospital. Funeral services will be held 3:30 P. M., Saturday, Feb. 6, 1960 from Chapel of the Chimes, Brown Funeral home, Rev. B. W. Waddle officiating. Burial in Sunset hills Cemetery. Mr. Collier will lie in state at the Brown Funeral Home, 1616 Davison Rd. He was born in Lake City Ark., Jan. 26, 1917, and resided in Flint for the last 14 years. He was a member of the Missionary Baptist Church and was employed as an inspector at the Chevrolet Frame Plant for 14 years. Surviving are; wife, Thelma; two sons, Willard of Michigan City, Ind., Jimmie at home; granddaughter, Kimberly K. Collier; brother, T. E. Collier of Flint; sister, Mrs. Constance Doty of Lake City Ark.; half-brother, James W. of Benton Harbor, Mich.; half-sister, Ruby L. Collier of Benton Harbor, Mich., several nieces and nephews.

RE: James Napoleon
Hi, Randy! Are you related to or did you know Mr. Powell? If so, I can transfer him to you.

I am trying to find out more about Della O'Guinn Collier daughter of William O'Guinn and Sarah Collins, she was married to James W. Collier, they had two sons Thowdeous Eualvin Collier, and Hubert Willard Collier, according to Hubert's obituary his sister was Constance Doty, which would make Constance Della's daughter although i have seen listed Murphy as her maiden name is 1930 census she is listed in with grandparents, so did Della marry a Murphy before she died? Della would have died around 1920.... i would think she'd be buried at same cemetery with her family, as James Collier remarried and seemed to have abandoned his kids with Della as they are not even mentioned in his obit, but in Hubert's obit his half siblings children of James and his 2nd wife Ada Robinson are listed.... hoping you can help me figure this all out Hubert's last surviving son just died, and his family never knew much about his Collier lineage, Hubert's wife Thelma Rand COllier was my Aunt.
