Year 1900: Lt. Cmd. William K Gise (uncle of Lawrence Preston Gise, who was grandad of Jeff #Bezos) was the captain of the USS #Sylph . He was so deeply associated w/ the Presidential Yacht that he reported his full-time residence as being on the USS Sylph for the 1900 US Census.
On the 3rd line - Is that a "Flynn" ? @btaylor_71 @MeemsKaso @mobster21
@btaylor_71 @MeemsKaso @mobster21 Yes it is - So William K #Gise is captain, and #3 on the boat of John F #Flynn

Lead boom was in southern Missouri / Kansas Early 1900s

Home of Jones family (starting w/ 1800s-millionare William Kenefick)

And in 1910/1920, whose family (which started in Illinois) lived nearby in Girard, Kansas?

Lloyd #Gise - Dad of Lawrence P Gise - G-Grandad of Bezos
[2] Lawrence P Gise was a director at the Atomic Energy Commission in the 1960s with 30,000 people reporting to him, and a co-founder of DARPA

And before that he was in the US Navy in WW2

But how did he start in the Pentagon and Dept. Agriculture in DC?
[3]This is huge. The Gise family made their fortune manufacturing hinges and other hardware in Joliet , but by the late 1800s / early 1900s were drilling/mining in the mining boom town of Girard Kansas.

Not saying they struck oil, but this helps identify the professional network

In 1995, Jeff Bezos’ parents took a $250,000 gamble on his fledgling startup

One IPO and 3 splits later, his parents’ stake could be worth almost $30 billion today. That would make them wealthier than Microsoft Corp. co-founder Paul Allen

[2] I am NOT saying #Bezos committed insider trading

But I AM saying that grandfather LP #Gise was a director at the AEC (Atomic Energy Commission) and key person to approve and fund ARPA , from which #ARPAnet evolved , and now #Amazon is the largest cloud provider on Earth
[3] Dont believe me? Search this for "Gise" (or LP Gise).
