Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello. Wendy and I live in the Memphis area.

My career in the Marine Corps landed us here. After retiring from the Corps, we settled and are building the next chapter of our lives. Our children and grandchildren remain our first love, but we do have a passion for genealogy and history.

I am an avid military researcher and collector, and Wendy is a member of the Mayflower Society, the Daughters of the American Revolution, and the Daughters of Union Veterans.

In between our full time jobs, we enjoy researching and sharing our discoveries. We have enjoyed the richness and bounty our country has to offer largely due to the work and sacrifice of our ancestors. Thus as a way to honor them, we strive to preserve the history of their journeys. Participating in organizations such as Find A Grave allows us to do just that.

Bruce's family includes the surnames: Doeller, Felthes, Gumtow, Hachman, Hechley, Keis, Koppy, Linz, Paterlick, Probst, Ringloff, Salzl, Schmidt, Streitz, Urban, Wiener.

Wendy's family includes the surnames: Allerton, Burow, Clark, Cushman, Dawson, Dumerce, Eaton, Johnson, Jones, Judkins, Kraft, Miller, Moore, Pearcy, Priest, Rahn, Robideaux (aka Robidoux), Smart, Spencer, Stevens, Stewart, Walker, Weins.

If you have information about any of our families we would love to hear from you. Let's trade stories.

Any photos I post on Find a Grave are intended to be used. Please feel free to use the photos for your personal needs or documentation.

Thank you so much for the picture! James took the place for his brother, John, who had a wife and several children. Through John came my line. So grateful!!

Thanks so much for searching for John's interment location in Memphis National and confirming that he has no interment there despite what source records appear to reflect.

This veteran apparently rests elsewhere and, hopefully, some future researcher will resolve the question.

RE: Gilbert Whelpley
Thanks for finding Gilbert's grave for me! I hadn't considered that his name might be misspelled. But, I should have considered that, having experienced it so many times myself. ;-) Anyway... I guess his stone will have to remain like that. If I requested a new one, spelled correctly, it probably wouldn't resemble the old upright slap-type that he has. Again, thanks for finding him and for the photo. Jan (Whelply) Garland.

Thank you so much for the photo of Melville Anthony. He is the brother of my uncle Houston Anthony that I never knew about.
