Sean Sloane ...[1]

I was born and grew up in an inland suburb (read boring) of San Diego, California; it is called La Mesa and the neighbouring area is El Cajon ;). I taught myself to play the piano and read music at a young age. I played piano almost every day until I left my mother's house, I also sang; and for a while played violin. I left La Mesa with the very first opportunity that presented itself and moved to Los Angeles; ca. 1985 which was high time for goth clubs, which I enjoyed thoroughly. I then moved to San Francisco; two weeks before the big quake of 1989. Luckily, I was staying with friends on high ground. Whilst there, I learnt massage (shiatsu and swedish). It was whilst studying shiatsu that I realised I had a natural feeling for yin/yang and the five elements. I wanted to study traditional Chinese medicine, so set out to learn Mandarin with traditional characters. This pursuit took me to Santa Cruz, California; Eugene, Oregon; and London (SOAS). I wasn't rich enough to carry on my studies in London so had to drop the course. I also realised that to study TCM, one really needed to go to either Vietnam or Korea as the Cultural Revolution purged anyone out of China who had these skills. Also, to become certified in the USA (or at least in California) one had to convert all these concepts into science (which has nothing to do with TCM). So, I gave it up and fell back on my computer knowledge which also came naturally. I ended up being an IT Manager in advertising agencies; specialised in print workflow. I am now retired due to health issues which is why I have so much time for genealogy, which I am passionate about.

I'm practically illiterate when it comes to wikitree, Sean; I hope to devote some time to learning the ropes of how to do stuff this summer. Don't hesitate to "bug" me if I miss a message or don't respond or if I try to release those people from the grip I've put on them and it doesn't work, let me know.

Thank you, Sean, for your kind words. Bob will be missed by his family members. He fought a fierce battle against diabetes, however, not many people ever win this battle. Thank you again, Larry

Sean, I can not thank you enough. Sadly my confusion comes and goes, is not getting any better just now. I did enjoy reading the story on the link you sent me. I'd heard parts of it before. The story did not conclude though, just quit with wolves close on their tails, They must have survived, judging by the number of descendents they both Thanks again. Please go ahead and make corrections as you see fit,if you have the time and energy. I know you have the expertise!

Thanks, Seán. I just discovered WikiTree yesterday, but you may be right about the Wiggins connection. My branch of the family also moved from England to North Carolina and then to South Carolina. I'll be filling in more family details on the Wiggins side as I locate them. Thanks, Steve

Sean,my new friend ( and likely cousin of some description ) let's not get too picky about that stuff) LOL! Your recent assist in extending my Sowell Line's early ancestry to the shores of the Mother Island (British Isle) was absolutely "the Icing on the Cake" (that had been in the colonial oven for upwards to 400 years) glad it was not overdone. Must have been a long toothpick !That's no small "Accomplishment" Sean, BTW! Great Cooking "Sean" LOL

Hi Sean, Exceptional work putting together the pieces of Sean's life (the photograph is quite iconic). I admire the map you made showing Sean's movements - very interesting way to demonstrate his life. (and I hope to learn more about how to do it). Congratulations!
