"A family is a place where principles are hammered and honed on the anvil of everyday living." ~ Chuck Swindoll

This website is dedicated to those who paved the way for my life. Many suffered hardships along the way, forced to leave their homeland due to religious intolerance, throwing off the yoke of an oppressive foreign government, and fighting many wars to maintain that freedom.

Today my family stretches from coast to coast, North and South. We have fought in all of America's wars and continue to defend her today. We are farmers, factory workers, engineers, clergy, executives and statesmen. We are proud of where we came from, but most of all, we are proud to be Americans.
