Family and Friends

As I begin to write a page on my "Family and Friends", it occurs to me that I have already covered this. In my "Pictures" section I have pictures of some of my family and friends; and in my "Web Links" page I have links to their web resources (for those who have something to link to). So this page will be a summary of links to these pictures and links, with some additional comments.

My Families

I was born in Charleston, South Carolina. And raised there. My families are: the Wilchers, Dunnings, Sauls, Blockers. (From my paternal and maternal grandfathers and grandmothers.) Most of my relatives live in South Carolina. My Grandfather's family comes from Georgia. I'm related to Dunnings in Massachusetts. My Dad moved to California, and us California Wilchers are, well, in California. Except for Bonnie who moved to Massachusetts.  Anyway...

In my pictures section I have pictures of me with my Mother and Grandmother in Charleston.
I also have pictures of our "California" Wilcher family: Me, Dad, Carol my stepmother, and sisters Ginny, Bonnie, and Nancy. Ginny is married to Dan Machak: and I have a niece and nephew: Laurel and Nathan Machak.    ( click here for pictures. )

Ginny and Dan maintain a web presence of some sort. They have a web page up for Laurel. I don't think it has been updated for quite a long time; but you can go there and see my niece's baby pictures. ( Click here for Laurel's Website. )


My Grandfather did research into the Wilcher family.
Including a trip to England to do research there and meet British Wilchers. Results of research: the family we come from originated in Germany about 600 years ago. At some point before commoners had last names, they moved to England. They acquired the name Wilshere in England. One of them managed to get himself knighted for some heroic act in a war, and so we got a Coat of Arms.  This resulted in the customary land grant from the King, who gave said Wilcher a parcel of land in the Colony of Virginia. In 1699 he sailed away to the American Colonies, taking his family to a new life in Virginia. His three sons all spelled their names different ways, and their progeny have scattered throughout the American south, and even to that distant golden island on the land known as California.


My friends are mostly geeks like me. I'll only mention the ones for whom I have a picture or internet reference. Click on the links for pictures, Web links, etc. Let's see....

I have pictures [ 1 2 ] of him.   He also has a personal webpage.  If you want to know Geep's real name, you'll have to look at his page or ask him. He is very talented with photoshop and graphical image thingys and doies.
