Welcome graphic

Dedicated to all of those before and after us who have felt the magnetic attractions of tranquility and peacefulness of Federal Point and area on the St Johns River in Florida

A Special Thanks to the following for their contributions and putting up with my incessant questions:
Brian Michaels and his book "The River Flows North" which I use frequently.
Dr. John Mahon (We all will miss him), Jim Cusick, Joe Knetsch, Chris Kimball, Mary Murphy-Hoffman, Pam Vojnovski,and my co-researcher Charlotte Johns and many others. 
"Memories of Florida" by E. Stuart Hubbard is a five volume manuscript about the people and times in the early days of Federal Point. Without this the Federal Point Website would probably not exist. I have used exerpts from this without permission of the family. I have tried to contact the Hubbard family without success.
 A special thanks to my wife Mary for sharing me with my computer. Without her help this would never happen

US Deaths in
                           Iraq since March 20th, 2003

A year after Fort Sumter, the philosopher John Stuart Mill contributed a piece to Harper's Magazine entitled "The Contest in America." Army Maj. David Taylor, who was killed in action on Oct. 22, 2006, always carried a quotation from the essay with him; it was found in his effects after he died. Mill's argument: some things are worth dying for. "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things," Mill wrote. "A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for ... is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
