I am an O'Guin by birth. Our rare Irish name is a very special part of the Irish Diaspora...it 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.
My research is at www.randyoguin.com Find-a-Graving Since Nov 24, 2009
RE: Lillie Snow O'Guinn Ranny, I thought that you would like to know that I added "JEWILL J. O'GUINN" to the Rozzell Cemetery along with a copy of her birth info and her death info that was recorded in her grandparents Bible. Have you ever found a Death Certificate for Jewill?
RE: James Randolph Pate They were in Chilton County for 4-5 generations, but came from SC. Samuel Pate (mid-1800s) is the name I remember. It's the family of a good friend, not mine, so names & dates aren't imprinted. Just enough familiarity for me to notice they're all over Middle TN, too! --H
RE: James Randolph Pate Transferred. Two things: 1) Don't hesitate to delete the bio, my ego is not tied up in it, just added what I found. 2) If you ever get into Pates in Alabama, please let me know! Good luck. --Harriet
RE: James O'Guin I honestly don't know what dates are correct for Jim or his daughter Viola. I think the best person to ask would be Joyce Mayberry as she is a direct descendant of Jim and Maryanne O'Guin. Her contributor # is 46986745.
