I was born in Bacon County, GA, attended school in same county and graduated from Bacon County High School in 1955. Shortly thereafter I joined the USAF, with Basic Military Training at Lackland AFB, San Antonio, TX, following this, moved on for Basic Electronics & Ground Radar Maintenance Training at Keesler AFB, MS and made it a career, retiring in 1975. I served in the following countries England (Shellingford Air Station), Germany (Birkenfeld Air Station), Libya (Wheelus AFB), South Vietnam (Ban Me Thout Air Station), and the following US States; Texas, Mississippi, South Carolina, Georgia, Washington & Michigan. After my retirement from the USAF, I worked for a short period as a Licensed Insurance Rep. for Mutual of Omaha, but I did not enjoy the hours of work, so I began working for Union Camp, a paper mill as a lab tech. Once again this was not the line of work I saw myself in years later so I applied for a job at Grumman American Aviations Corp andI was hired as an Quality Control Inspector by Grumman American Aviation Corp., which became Gulfstream American Corp. in Savannah, GA and retired as Manager of Quality Assurance in 1997. It was during this period of employment that I renewed my efforts toward a college degree & I completed all the requirments and graduated in 1979 with a BA in History. I had been interested in my family lineage for sometime and over the years I was semi active in my research, but became active during the 1990's. Most of my data is from family members, tombstones, info from family generated histories and from data presented online.
