Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired USAF E8, having served my country proudly for over 20 years; including 2 and 1/2 years continuously (14 CSG) in Vietnam. I was at Keesler AFB, Mississippi, for technical training, spent three years (6913 RSM)in Bremerhaven, Germany, 3 years (3750 CSG) in Wichita Falls, Texas, (Vietnam), 8 continuous years (32 TFS)in The Netherlands, and a little over 3 years (48 CSG)at Lakenheath AB, England. Born in Ohio and raised in Fort Worth, I have made Houston (Kingwood/Humble) my home the last 32 years. I've earned degrees from the University of Maryland (BS), George Peabody College for Teachers at Vanderbilt University (MS), and Houston Baptist University (MBA).

My research interests are Plies, Blouwhoff, MacCall, Erb, Strange, Forster, Anderson, Dodd, Duhon, Montes. Obregon. Have done extensive research on Driver, Linton and Wallis lines as well. Special interest are the Mason, Mintor, O'Quinn, Stengler, and the Wilborn families of Texas. I will share my research results with direct descendants of the aforementioned surnames.

Happy hunting and thanks for helping preserve the factual history of our loved ones.

Bill, thank you for sponsoring all those memorials

I'm finally through with St Olaf. If you would like any transfers, please let me know

Oh. We are moving into Clifton. Please change my email. I will be off line a few days. Hope this finds you fully recuperated. Take care

RE: Shields Photos
You're very welcome! By the way, I came across some other Shields' stones while doing the other photo requests. I am wondering if they are relatives of these two brothers. Anyhow, I took photos of those stones as well and uploaded them. Wasn't sure if you were family or even wondering about that, but thought I'd let you know.
