Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired. Spent my younger days as a staff engineer in automated escape systems for fighter aircraft-primarily for installation into the AV-8A and AV-8B Marine Corps light attack fighters. Later, as a aerospace technical proposal consultant, mostly worked in Northern Ireland, England and France with shorter periods in Germany, Italy, and Canada. Also worked all across the United States--from LA to NYC. Born in Asheville, NC. 8 March 1943.

Researching: Wakefield/Ballew/Bishop/Phipps/Baker/Chunn/Fleming among other lines...willing to help those, like me, who are just starting out. Also willing to obtain photographs of graves located in Buncombe, and McDowell Counties in NC.

With warm regards to all...

RE: R.R. Wakefield
Thank you for your quick reply. I looked at this Robert's probate records and a few other documents and could find no middle name or initial. I also considered Judge R.R. Wakefield probably would have gone by Junior. I am a direct descendant of Josiah A Wakefield, I tend to be protective. Thanks for your other recent edits and as we seem to be cousins I will wish you a Merry Christmas!

thank- you so much
i new billy for a short time in MA. where we both worked. we are both veterans.
he was desert storm and i was in operation iraq freedom and he was there when i shipped out for a whole year.i never got to see him again.
he told me he had cancer and i told him the VA would fix him up for free but he did not make it and he never told me how sick he really was so now i feel so guilty for not going to see him as i planned.
i was getting married and money was tight so i figured if he is doing ok so far i will get married and then go visit him but he died .
his wife told me he died and to call the house later but never got any answer to this day..i now will go see his grave and do what veterans do for our fellow veterans...we leave a penny,dime,quarter or silver dollar on the grave or buried next to stone. we always leave something every time we visit.. so thank you very much.i could not of done this myself
