MARTY & LEAH DULING

This is a basic home page concerning Duling family genealogy, and the latest family pictures. I have worked on the Duling family genealogy, and have most of my direct family tree.  My line comes down from William Duling (1748-1839), who came from England and lived near what is now Keyser, W.VA. One of his sons, Collin Campbell Duling (1784-1851), moved to Coshocton County, OH, about 1817, and died there in 1851. One of his sons, William Duling (1805-1858), moved to Owen County, IN in 1850, where one of his sons Elijah Duling (1839-1903) was born. One of Elijah's sons John H. Duling (1881-1918), was my grandfather, who died in the 1918 flu epidemic. John had two sons, Glenn and Martin Albert Duling (1907-1969), my father, who moved to Iowa about 1928. I was born in 1930 in Coon Rapids, IA.  There is an annual Duling reunion each August in Fairmount, Indiana.

I spent 25 years in the U.S. Navy and retired LCDR in 1973.  Electronics was my job in the aviation branch of the Navy, and I then worked for a small electronics company in Wheeling, IL from 1973 to 1994. My wife and I retired in 1994 and moved to Versailles, KY for four years and in July 1998 moved to Springfield, IL.  My Navy career included 15 months on Midway Island; 2 years in Oahu Hawaii; 3 years at NAF Lajes in the Azores Islands; one Med cruise on the USS Roosevelt CVA-42 (scrapped)  and one on the USS Intrepid CVA-11 (now a museum in New York harbor). Duty stations included: VR-21 Det Midway Island; VR-21 Barbers Point, Hawaii;  NAS Meridian, MS; NATTC Norman, OK; VF-74 NAS Oceana, VA; VR-1 TACAMO at Patuxent River, MD; NAS Glenview, IL (two times); VP-44 at Norfolk and Patuxent River (5 month deployment to NAF Sigonella Sicily), and electronics training several times at NATTC Memphis, TN, Boot Camp in San Diego 1948 and Officer Training Newport, RI in 1960. 

I am using a Dell XPS 8900 computer with Windows 10 and Comcast Broadband cable modem service, feeding a Sony 26" TV.  Leah uses a Dell XPS 8500 PC. We also have small Acer Netbooks  we use when we travel.  I have been using computers since 1992 and do my own upgrades.  Click here for a view of early computer before the Internet as we know it.    Hobbies include computers, digital photography, and aviation.   My cameras are the Sony A7ii Full Frame; Sony A6300 compact; Sony HX90V zoom, and Sony RX100M3 point & shoot.  Pictures of the cameras
