Bio and Links
Bio Photo A native of Miami, Fla., and now living in South Carolina since 1979, I've been a minister in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) for 30 years and was a member of the U.S. Air Force and S.C. Air National Guard for almost 40 years. I retired from the Air Force in Feb. 2010 as a Major (almost 13 years enlisted and more than 27 years a commissioned officer). My wife, Judy, and I have four grown children: a daughter and three sons. Our daughter is a former teacher and now a full-time mother in Virginia. Our three sons have fulfilled and are continuing to fulfill their duty to their country as military members of the Air Force and the Marines. I enjoy photography, genealogy, and helping others in their genealogical quests. I am glad to be able to try to fulfill photo requests as time permits. I am pastor of the Salem Presbyterian Church (founded 1812) in Fairfield County (SC) located about 32 miles north of Columbia. I am a graduate of Miami Senior High School, Miami, Fla., 1968; The Citadel, Charleston, S.C., 1972, Charleston, S.C., and Columbia International University, Columbia, S.C., 1984, as well as numerous DoD and USAF schools. I am a descendant of Joshua Hodges, Sr., (R.S.) (1736-1809), Nathaniel Hodges, (1777-1858), Wade Payton Hodges, (1822-1877), Nathaniel Thomas Hodges, (1860-1943), Charles Groover Hodges, Sr., (1889-1980), and Charles G. Hodges, Jr., (1920-2013) I am also a descendant of the Trulocks from south Georgia, specifically Gordon Byron Trulock, (C.S.A.) On my mother's side, I am a descendant of the Jones, Rhodes, Trawick, McCall, and Sammons families of Dale and Barbour counties, Alabama.

Willie Virginia Pillow
Thank you for posting the photo of Willie Virginia Pillow Puckette's gravestone. She is my grandfather's sister. I submitted an edit to link her to her parents. This will complete the Pillow family.

William Howard Carlson, Sr
William H. Carlson Sr is a second cousin of mine. I presume the family supplied obit is correct and it should be Blackman. Thank you for the info and for your updates of the memorials. I appreciate your help. Bill Carlson

Hi, this is Crystal McLeod, Anna's daughter-in-law. If you would like to transfer her memorial page to me, I would be more than happy to maintain it.

RE: Alexander Love Wilson
I know have more information on Alexander Wilson. I copied his bio from the book we have at the historical society. Please send me your name and address and I will mail it to you.

RE: Alexander Love Wilson
Hi Richard

I am with the Southwest Florida Historical Society and I got the photo from a book. I will go there on Sat and get the name of the book and the page number. I will see if there is a longer bio with the photo too.

Harry and Anna Kaplan
Hi Richard,
We transferred the Kaplans to you after reading your flower note for Harry. We didn't know if you knew about Anna's passing; and know you will take good "care" of them.
Thank you for your service to our country and for serving the Lord.
Blessings to you and your family,

RE: Henry Mitchell Owings
I thought perhaps you were also a fellow serviceman when I noticed the camo. I try to leave some kind of a "tag" on all of the veteran's memorials that I come across. Thanks for your dedicated service to our nation also, Richard!
