01/05/13 143 W - + 3 - 6 Multi-Generational Firefighting Families?


Inspired by participants in the Hibernian pub posting comments, how many multi-generational firefighting families do we have in Raleigh and Wake County? From my research in Raleigh, five (!) three generations have served in the Raleigh Fire Department since 1912:

Taylor

And to which Tim's son Tyson is presently a career firefighter with Fuquay-Varina FD.  Four generations!

Ray

Hodges

Ellis

Brown





Pretty cool Mike! Thanks for researching that. Still trying to hunt down some photos for you. I’ll be making a trip down to the farm this upcoming week and I hope i’ll find some stuff there for you.

Awesome topic Mike: Bay Leaf FD

Fred Stephenson (1968-2010)
Bill Stephenson (1985-present )
William Stephenson Jr. ( 2007-present )
Thomas Stephenson ( 2012-present )

To date this is the only third generation family to serve Bay Leaf FD .
William and Thomas’s other grandfather proudly served the City of Raleigh from (1969-1994 )

Thanks again for sharing ! Mike
