Ruth's Genealogy

“I don't know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.” -Abraham Lincoln

My grandfather Miles Francis Stanley II worked as a draftsman for General Dynamics in Fort Worth. General Dynamics built planes for the Air Force, among other things.

After Granddad died in 1970, my aunts gathered up some of his drawings and used them to create nick-nack boxes and wall-hangings, then gave them to each of us grandkids.

This is my 40-year-old box. Kinda scratched and dinged, but still in use. And the drawings are still clear and show the talent he had. I remember when we were kids and went to my grandparent’s house, Granddad was always “doodling”, drawing and writing.
