Richard was born in Gaithersburg, Maryland. His mother and her sister went there to have their children. They later returned to their home in Gloversville, NY. Richard's father, Robert found work with General Electric in Bridgeport, CT., so we moved there in 1935. 2 brothers and 2 sisters were born in the Bridgeport Hospital.

Richard graduated from the Warren Harding High School in Bridgeport, Connecticut in 1952. He went to the Ohio State University where he received a BS in Business in 1956. He was first employed at the Chevrolet Division of GMC in Toledo, Ohio,

Richard enlisted in the Army Reserve in 1957. His unit was called to active duty in 1961 because of the Cuban Missile threat, He served as first Sergeant in his Financial Disbursement Unit. He completed his military enlistment as a Sgt First Class in 1963.

Richard married Carole Dreyer in 1959. They have 2 sons and a daughter.

Richard retired from the Aratex Uniform Company in 1993 after 22 years with the company. He was their data processing manager, office manager and purchasing agent.

His mother had done some genealogy work on her Harrington family on his father's Hayes family. Richard received all of her material when she died in 1983. The Harrington line went back to the Nellis family that was in 1710 Palatine Migragration. 2 volumes of the Nellis/Nelles family history were published. Richard has a website that has all of the 51,300 names in the book. The address is Freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry/~nelliswebsite.

The "Genealogy of the Fort Family in New York State" by Jerome H. Fort gave him a connection to persons from France and the Netherlands. Richard worked on these lines until about 2008. He then found that he had a connection to many persons who were on the Mayflower. Richard has been approved for membership in the Society of Mayflower Descendants for Richard Warren, William Mullins and his daughter Priscilla and her husband John Alden. His website for these people contains over 86,100 names.

Richard has a number of connections that he would like to make. The primary one is to find out who the parents of his 3rd great grandfather, David Hays were. They would have been born in Northern Ireland around 1770.

Hi Richard,

I sent you a message a week ago about the new-look Global Cemeteries Project but have not yet heard back from you. If you would like to continue in the project, please can you PM me your team(s) selections and your e-mail address for the Google group.

If I don’t hear back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer wish to be in the project at this time.

Many thanks,

Susie :-)

Hi Richard,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,

I haven’t yet heard back from you to say whether or not you’d like to continue in the Canada Project. Please can you let me know if you’d like to stay, what team(s) you’d like to be in, and let me know your e-mail address so I can add you to the project Google Group? If I haven’t heard back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer want to be in the project and go ahead and remove you. You would, of course, be most welcome to re-join at any time.

Many thanks,
