Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Terre Haute, Indiana, and joined the Air Force at an early age. After two careers (USAF and U.S. Capitol Police), two marriages (death and divorce) and wonderful children AND grandchildren, I completely retired and relocated to North Carolina. I enjoy searching the past..., for myself and others.

I also enjoy being a contributor to this excellent website. When visiting cemeteries for my own purposes or upon request, I will usually photograph and add several other graves from that visit. I feel that they too have a story to tell and will hopefully be found by a loved one. If my entries prove incorrect or incomplete, or you would prefer to replace with your own data, please let me know. I am always willing to make a change for the improvement of a memorial. I will also consider reasonable requests for transfer. Please use the EDIT tab on the applicable memorial(s). PLEASE DO NOT PLACE A DEATH RECORD ON THE MEMORIALS THAT I MANAGE. If you feel that something pertinent is on the record that I have overlooked in the bio, send me an EDIT request.

I do not display a list of Find A Grave Friends..., there are far too many. Rest assured, if you have helped me or I have helped you, then you ARE My Friend.

ADDENDUM: Photographs I have taken at burial locations may be used by others for any legitimate purpose (excluding reposting on other findagrave memorials). Hopefully, I would be given credit for the work. However, personal photographs I have placed on memorials that I created, maintain or posted otherwise, unless specified in that content, remain in my control and are considered copyrighted materials.

But I do hope that you will enjoy viewing the personal photographs I have posted, especially those of my deceased wife COLLEEN, my DAD, MOTHER and our extended family, including the Mother and Father of my second wife and her extended family.

I'm not. I am doing some work for a client and I am trying to find some living family members.

Hi David,
I noticed that you added the McAdoo line to find a grave. I was wondering if you where connected to them?
If so can we talk?

RE: re: Montie Williams McIntosh
Thank you, Mr. Oxford! In research that I did today, my memory was jogged, and I recalled more sisters, and a brother, too. There is actually a book written on those Williamses, and you could also refer to At any rate, there was Evander, Montie, Mintie (not twins!), Maggie Mae, Fuller, Mary Ella, and a toddler who died at the age of 2. Big family--wow!

Thank you again,

RE: re: My Earlier on B. Moore Photo
NP David. Funny that you relate to my past sort of. I remember vividly spending an evening in a laundromat one night in the early 70's, must have been January or February, feeding dimes in the gas dryer to keep the place warm while my sneakers tumbled around. A buddy of mine and I had decided one day to hitchhike from Des Moines, Iowa to the French lick in Indiana to see a friend of ours. On the way back we got a ride from a man who took us to a McDonalds in Terra Haute and gave us ten bucks to buy us a meal. The next day another ride (still in Indiana) asked I f we minded a fast ride. NP I said as he slammed the pedal to the floor. We were flying!!!!!!!!!!!! We moved to NC about three years ago from Miami. I think we're going back.
