Retired Navy submarine officer, ran a small business for several years, and then worked for Microsoft for 10 years. 5+ years of genealogy research, building on the efforts of my uncle Dr. William Whitfield Stiles and my father Merritt Loud Stiles.

Family Lines Researching: Stiles, Mitchell, Merritt, Loud, Devasher, and Fanelli. On my wife's side, I'm researching Brownlee, Forsythe, Scofield, Cawley, Templeton.

NOTE: The following is "borrowed" from James Seidelman's profile (Find-A-Grave ID 9118441). He has way more experience than I do (over 20 years) and he has an outlook and philosophy that I want to emulate.

"When a loved one dies ... they don't die if someone takes the time to share the information with the world, and has become a world-wide web site."

If someone I've listed is in a line of your family (and not a direct line of mine) I'm happy to transfer the management to a family member or friend who is actively researching and can add more information to the memorial.

"I feel this website is for sharing and caring...not hording and holding...enjoy!"
