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.

Donald Rich CWO-4, USMC (Ret)

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

Just wanted to say thank you for the transfer. It means so much more than you even know. I'm letting his sons know and I am positive they will be thrilled! Also, thanks to you for your service to our country! God bless you! Have a wonderful day! Cheryl

Ruth Thompson Cason Rich
Hi Donald,
Ruth Cason Rich is my Great Aunt. Her father is my Great Grandfather ( Henry S Thompson). I have been researching that line of my family tree for several years and just recently had the break thru to him. Thanks for DNA. I was wondering how you are related and how Ruth became a Rich? Do you know of any of her children by Ernest Cason? They would be my 2nd cousins. I would appreciate any and all information that you can share.
Thank You, Donna Kalberer Find a Grave #47128593 or Email:

On Jan. 25 I used the Edit option to send a note for addition to his memorial. Did you receive it?

Please edit this memorial to state the correct cemetery. Tolbert Family Cemetery.

This is his cemetery that was originally on his land. I believe he started it to bury his beloved wife Martha in 1898, however there are many unnamed graves in this cemetery I am working to get identified.

I am the current caretaker of the property.

Thanks, Kim
