    Biographical History

    David Kent Treadwell was born in Springfield, Massachusetts in September 1942. Treadwell had an interest in genealogy and researched the early immigration patterns of his family. His ancestry chart reveals that some of his relatives were born in England in the early 1600s and moved to Windsor, Connecticut in 1640. Treadwell managed to obtain information on his ancestors as far back as the 15th century with the help of organizations like the Genealogical Society of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints, Inc. Treadwell later moved to San José, California and was a supervisor with the National Semiconductor Corporation. He died on March 1, 1992 at the age of 49 and was buried in Oak Hill Memorial Park in San José, California.
