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 for taking the photo of my 3rd great grandfather Robert Garnett. I had previously seen his name in the cemetery listing. However, I was not sure it was my 3rd great grandfather because his last name was misspelled on his headstone. But since you were able to verify that this is headstone and grave site, I've been able to solve this genealogy mystery. Thanks again for your help.

Hi, I have a crew photo of the USS Tulsa from May 1929. I've been identifying the officers using the navy directory from 4/29. And then I've tried to find what I could about their careers online. At that time 1st Lt. Zern commanded the Marine complement of about 30 on Tulsa. He had also served on Tulsa when she was in the Special Service Squadron operating in Nicaragua and Haiti before transferring to the Asiatic Fleet in Jan. 29. I plan to crop an image of him from the photo to put on the memorial. Thanks for adding the information, Regards, JD

Thank you so very much for the photo of Rollo Hall's headstone. His brother, who also served, as well as his family are all buried in a little cemetery here in LaGrange County, IN.
