I grew up in Dublin, Bladen County, North Carolina, attending Dublin Elementary, Tar Heel High, Southeastern Community College, and some time at N.C. State. In 1968 I joined the Air Force and spent tours in California, Florida, Mississippi, England, South Korea, and finally outside Boston where I retired from the service in 1988 and moved to Plano, Texas (a northern suburb of Dallas). I recently retired after 24 years as an Engineering Manager for a defense company. I am working on my Robeson and Allen ancestor family trees and found that Findagrave.com has loads of useful data. So, would like to contribute what I can from my data searches and details of my family lineage. Would also be glad to take and send photos of graves in the north Dallas area.
