Born in Springfield, MA in 1952, I had been in the retail business for 35 years managing at all levels, consulting and training in both sales and service. I have three children, 2 sons and a daughter ages 30, 33 and 36. My first grandchild was born December 1, 2010! Another generation to follow!
On September 22, 2007, I married my second wife, Karen J (Thurber) Murphy. Karen is the widow of Wayne E Murphy (1952-2001/Memorial #37248763) and has 2 children, a son age 26 and a daughter age 23.

A quick note: To add an internal link in the biography, you would need to type < a href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=XXXXXXX">Name< /a> (I put this here because I use it frequently and am tired of digging for it in the FAQ.)
RE: Rev Rufus King Bellamy #39632183 Don't put ME as the source - I just took it from his obit - if you're want the true reference: 1886 Nov 17 New York Times pg 1 - I don't need any credit at all, thanks anyways... Happy New Year
RE: #37604287 Thank you for your comment. We are related, but just distant. On his birth date I didn't know exactly what to put. I have that he was born 1605/1606 in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, England - that is known for sure - didn't know about the 1606/1606 - maybe you could put one of the dates in the birth section with a note in the bio that it could be either year. About Abigail - on Ancestry.com it states that she was born 1645 in Windsor, Hartford, CT. and died in 1649 there also - some reports say 1645 others say 1648, so she was just a child when she died. Hope this helps some. Thank you again.
