This is my homepage in my search for some of the following families: COLLINS, BUNCH, BURNETT,  BLACKSTONE, HURST, HUTCHISON, PETTYJOHN, WADE, and BARLOW leading to another COLLINS branch.   I try  to update the website every week but some times life gets in the way.  I have recently begun adding  military ranks, where known, to listed relatives and descendants as a way of honoring their military  service.

I found a quote online which says "To rescue from oblivion the history of a large and honorable  family is a praiseworthy achievement.  Somebody must begin the work.  It is hoped that someone  will complete it."  This was from the book, "Sketches of the Bozeman Family", by Reverend Joseph  Woodruff Bozeman, 1885.  I am not related to Mr. Bozeman but wholeheartedly support his statement.   Then recently I found another which is just as relevant:  "Genealogy begins as an interest, Becomes  a hobby, Continues as an avocation, Takes over as an obsession, And in its last stages, Is an  incurable disease." Author Unknown

There have been a lot of friends that have helped me in my research.  I'd especially like to thank  Dorothy Deniger, Russell Collins, Reta Hare, Jim Nickels, Beverly Shenold, Tonya Rensch, Shane  Spencer and Kathy Franks for their assistance.  A lot of this information would not be available  without their input.

I am sharing my data in the interest of collaborative research and hopefully to assist others in  their own research.  I have not personally researched all of the families listed; the dates and  information are subject to verification, and we all know how difficult that can be. Please bear in  mind that there may be discrepancies. I find errors and make corrections almost every week. I  encourage you to seek further documentation for your own confirmation as I do consistently.  Not all  of these families are directly related to me.  When available, research has been done on  collateral families and that info is included.  I live in Douglas County, Missouri within a few  miles of where many of these BUNCH, COLLINS, HURST, and PETTYJOHN families lived and that is my  main area of research.  Much of that information has been provided to me by family members and then  verified through other sources.

If you need an invitation to visit this site I'm happy to assist you. If you are granted access to the website, please stay in touch and let me know any connections we may have. This search, much like life, is a work in progress. If you have any additions or corrections, please let me know. Good luck in your hunting and if I can assist, please notify me at tkcollins@exede.net.
