|Bio and Links|
|I spent a little over 20 years in the U.S. Air Force flying C-130's and KC-10's as a flight engineer, then worked and flew for the airlines as an A & P, flight engineer, and commercial pilot, for 15 years and still counting. I fly general aviation aircraft for fun, as well as sometimes for vacations and business. I am looking to retire from my airline career in the near future. I have started to work in the real estate field part time for the last three years, and plan to go into it full time once I leave the airlines.|
I am interested in the genealogy of my family. The names I am most interested in are: Moon, Toppel, Herper, Barris, Stack, Spice, Swager, von Asten, and Brown. I have a direct unbroken line on my line of the Moon's back to the very early 1600's in England. My line of Moon's came over from England as Quakers on a boat called the Bristol Merchant in 1682, that sailed out of Bristol, England. They sailed one month behind William Penn, a friend of their's, who was on a ship called the Welcome. My relatives have fought in every war this country has been involved in since the mid 1700's, to include both sides of the Civil War.
I really like Find A Grave as I have found some very nice people here, who will bend over backwards to help folks out. This web site is administered very reverently and in good taste. It is a nice place to create a memorial to honor your loved ones and friends who have passed, as well as a great place for people interested in genealogy to do research, or help others in their searches.
