Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began this journey to discover who my ancestors were, how they lived and where their dreams took them. As a very young child, I lived and dreamed myself inside the contents of three suitcases and two scrapbooks that were filled with photos and keepsakes from my parent's childhoods and glimpses of the grandparents I never knew.

Yet...this was only the beginning.

I began my research just prior to the death of my mother in 2007 and it has become not only my favorite pastime, but almost my driving purpose. I had hoped to find many things when I started, but what I was not expecting was to find new family members, amazing cousins and a community of genealogist who are beyond generous, who take photos, share research and go above and beyond to help bring you closer to those who came before.

I am researching the following Surnames:
Silagy/Szilagyi (Hungary, Brooklyn New York, Gardena, California)
Lackey (McAlester, Oklahoma, Tupelo, Mississippi)
Riley (Pontotoc, Union, and Lee counties Mississippi)
Brown (Brooklyn)*Name change-Russell to Brown
Russell (Brooklyn)
Knight (Brooklyn)
Copeland (Lindale,Texas, McMinn, Tennessee, Walker, Georgia, Spartanburg, South Carolina)
Ogburn (Lindale, Texas, Henry, Tennessee)
Starr (Starrville, Texas, Macon, Alabama)

I am interested in the Riley family you are/were researching. My Great Grandfather was Samuel Claiborne Riley. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Robynne hello. The profile page for Lewis Hyer --do you know any of his family still living? I am from his wife Jane Walters. Is it possible to edit this memorial? I would like to add to it. Thank you, Sue K

Rosa Silagy
Of course, Robynne, I will transfer your great grandmother. We are required to do so when asked (4 generation transfer rule). I also have a Hungarian great grandmother named Rosa! (Actually, her birth name was Rosina but she went by Rosa.)

I can tell by reading your bio that you will take good care of her!

If there is anything else I can do for you, just let me know.

Best regards,

PS - Nice old photo of her!

Robynne... Do you have access to the Ogburn Family History written by Fielding Ogburn in the 1980's? I don't know if it's still available but you are welcome to use mine.

Do you know the parents or more information on the Ruffin Family that is here.
Richard Buckley
1826 1918
I think the reference to R.E Buckley48516258 and Mamie# 29615360 is Richard Buckley who later also married Charity E Anding Mem# 48516342.
Thanks for any information.
