Elder of Journey Community Church, Lumberton. "I was born fifty years too late. I love the old way of life. Being outdoors hunting, fishing, working the dirt, and taking it at a slow pace fits me just fine. This fast-paced modern world is leaving me rapidly behind. I love history, genealogy, family (especially cousins) and I have a problem with collecting too many keepsakes. I do enjoy life. I just don't seem to have enough hours in the day. I'll have a talk with someone someday about that." Floyd created a web page for his connection the the Dougharty Family.|
2009-2014, Frank B. Swayze
Captain, Judge Advocate General's Corps, U.S. Navy (Retired). Frank is a direct descendant of Judge Samuel Swayze through his son, Israel Swayze, a brother of Richard Swayze and the Rev. Samuel Swayze. Currently living in San Diego, Frank enjoys traveling nationally and internationally. Since 1965 his big time-consumer is collecting vintage radio programs. He's catalogued over 7,000, but that doesn't really scratch the surface. The probable highlight of the collection at this point is 1 1/2 hours of NBC's coverage of Lindbergh's arrival back in the US from his 1927 trans-Atlantic flight, in incredible sound considering. It features Pres. Coolidge presenting him an award, and his address to the National Press.
