Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired Senior Marine Corps Officer (Mustang) living in Tampa Fla. Researching family history and trees for surnames Rich, Webb, Marshall, Mathis & Wofford.

I have traced and documented my main family line (Rich) back to 1650 Virginia in Colonial America and many 3rd generation individuals participated in the revolutionary war.

The family arrived in Virginia in the 1650's from England and moved into North Carolina and then South Carolina, Georgia & Florida while others migrated west into Tennessee, Alabama, Texas & Illinois. Many family lines changed the surname "Rich" to Riche, Ritch, Reach and others,

It is an extremely large family & I have "documented" over 10,000 direct ancestors to date. I find a lot of personal history and like to add family members personal history & links.

I found many "family trees" in which the older ancestors were WRONG from simply following others previous errors and researchers focusing on their own branch. My goal became to document the ENTIRE family line in one complete database with supporting documentation for all.

When I join my ancestors in the long sleep my database and FAG memorials will be transfered to the Rich Family Assn. (RFA) for all to use.

If I request a memorial transfer be assured they are a close direct ancestor and it easier to make the updates, corrections & add links rather than burden you with that task.

I understand that you might have some "claim" to a memoral as a decendent BUT I would appreciate the transfer to keep the entire family line "in one easy to find place".

If you find a new "Rich" or variant gravesite, please let me know so I may assist you in research for the individual.

Sincerely;
Donald Rich CWO-4, USMC (Ret)

If you need a photo in the Hillsborough, Manatee or Polk County Florida area, please let me know.

Mildred V Reach/Terrell Reach
Created by: Donald Rich

Find A Grave Memorial# 75128716
Thank you for the wonderful contributions you have made on find a grave. One of my husbands ancestors was married to Terrell Frederick Reach referenced at the beginning of this email. Terrell was married to Mildred M Green. Mildred is still alive in West Blocton, Alabama. I just spoke to her a few minutes ago. I am still trying to sort out the confusion with Mildred V Reach who died in 2009.
Would you please remove Mildred V from Terrell? The headstone has Mildred's birthdate which is correct for my Mildred but no death date since she is alive and well and almost 91 years old.
I had also made the same mistake of confusing the two Mildred's before I knew what was what.
Thanks so much,
Karen Jeffreys

I am so sorry it took so long to correct, but I corrected Julia's name and birth information and linked her to her family members. I am transferring her to you as well.

Have a wonderful day!

Rich Trail & History
Looking for more info! My grandfather is "Sanford Garfield Rich" b. Dec. 13, 1905 d. May 26, 1988 (Benton Memorial Gardens) and said he was born in Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains. My great-grandfather is "John Rich" b. May 2, 1882 d. Jul. 27, 1966 (Lee's Chapel Baptist Church Cemetery). I know from the social security application form SS-5 completed by John that his dad and mom are "Burton 'Burt' Rich" and "Elizabeth Prince".
A bit of history for you is the "Rich Trail" back packing trail from Cades Cove over to North Carolina was named after them according to my grandpa Sanford. They were some kind of traders using the trail between North Carolina and Tennessee for trade and visit family. I contacted the part service and they could not provide any history on the trail.
Thanks for your time
