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.

Pearcy and Spencer
I just read your Bio, and noticed that Wendy has names in her list of Piercy and Spencer. My maiden name is McOwen, and my mother was a Spencer. I already left you a note about my Uncle William H. Piercy & wife, Willie Alma McOwen Piercy. Plus I saw you were from the Memphis area. I can't help wondering if we might cross paths.

William H. Pierce
Thank You very much for the picture, I'm not sure this is the right person. My uncle and Aunt's last name is Piercy, and they are from Memphis, Shelby County Tennessee. My Uncle was William H. Piercy, Sr, and my aunt was Willie Alma Mcowen Piercy, and they are buried in Forest Hill Cemetery Midtown, Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee. They had a son William H. Piercy, Jr.

I appreciate the time you spent doing this for me.
