|Bio and Links|
My parents and oldest brother, William Jr., eternally reside in the McKune Cemetery, Oakland Township, PA. My dad's brother (James Theodore Mess) and sisters (Catherine Mess and Nellie Mess Towner), as well as his parents (Herman William Martin Mess and Merle Elizabeth [Blessing] Mess) and Herman's parents [my grandparents] (John and Augusta [Bohn] Mess) are all within close proximity in the McKune Cemetery along with many many cousins, aunts and uncles. |
John and Augusta Mess immigrated during mid-late 1800's making them our American lineage for the Mess family.
For more than two decades I have delved into my family's histories and met some great people and unknown family along the way.
On my dad's side of the family the surnames include Mess, Mass, Blessing, Bohn, Connelly, Gurney, Hilborn, Lillie, Harvey, Hawkins, Hawes, Saxby, Scott, Stoddard, Van Horn, and Williams.
On my mom's side of the family the surnames include Brown, Stanley, McCracken, McKee, and Flanary.
And from personal research about my late great-uncle, Osbert E. Williams, his aviation associates:
- Robert T. Armstrong
- Lincoln Beachey
- Bert Beavers
- C. Ray Benedict
- Cyrus Bettis
- Al Boshek
- Clayton J. Brukner (Waco Aircraft)
- Harold M. Bruner
- John and Guy Burns
- Russell Clark
- Ransom Fowler
- Frank Freeman
- Anthony "Tony" Hoesel
- Wallace Hosp
- J. Thad Johnson
- Elwood J. Junkin
- Edward G. Knapp
- Don McGee
- Alfred Norenberg
- Russell B. North
- Frank Paine
- John T. Patterson (Patterson Aviators)
- Reyburn Watres
- Elling O. Weeks
