I think we have communicated before on this issue, but the Woodlawn cemetery records show Susie's last name as McAloney.

I could find nothing on William McAuley or McAloney.

I hope to get out to Woodlawn tomorrow and will look for William's marker where I find Susie's.

RE: and Thank you again
I would do them all at once, but I was trying to fill in some details for them first. (plot locations, etc.)

I'll get them all over to you soon though!

Cornelius at Cherry Hill, Calvary
A stone was finally installed, but only one of them is on it.
I'm sure there is a story behind that!!

McAulay in Gwd, SC.
I have also added a closer view of his wife's memorial. Dorothy's year of birth is wrong on her memorial and I sent an edit to change it to 1912 as it is on the marker. If she was age 97 at death, the current year of 1929 doesn't work at all.

William Henry Purdy
Hello Ian,

I would like to get information on William Henry Purdy. I know he was from Wabash, Indiana. His wife was Mary Elizabeth "Bessie" Mills.

He married Mary Mildred Hamilton after he brought a car from William Robert Andrews her 1st husband. I know he had a homestead in Tisdale Saskatchewan. That is when he meet Mary.

They married near his brother place in Montana. See the information:
Name: Wm Henry Purdy Titles and Terms: Event Type: Marriage Event Date: 04 Aug 1919 Event Place: Wolf Point, Roosevelt, Montana Age: 49 Marital Status: Previous Wife's Name: Race: Birth Date: Birthplace: Birth Year (Estimated): 1870 Father's Name: Henery L Purdy Father's Titles and Terms: Mother's Name: Josephine Brown Mother's Titles and Terms: Paternal Grandfather's Name: Paternal Grandmother's Name: Maternal Grandfather's Name: Maternal Grandmother's Name: Additional Relatives: Spouse's Name: Mary Mildred Andrews Spouse's Titles and Terms: Spouse's Age: 29 Spouse's Marital Status: Spouse's Race: Spouse's Birth Date: Spouse's Birthplace: Spouse's Birth Year (Estimated): 1890 Spouse's Father's Name: John Hamilton Spouse's Father's Titles and Terms: Spouse's Mother's Name: Jane Buchanan Spouse's Mother's Titles and Terms: Spouse's Paternal Grandfather's Name: Spouse's Paternal Grandmother's Name: Spouse's Maternal Grandfather's Name: Spouse's Maternal Grandmother's Name: Reference ID: No 42 GS Film number: 1903324 Digital Folder Number: 4156707 Image Number: 145

I would love to connect with the Purdy family. Where is he buried? Did he live in Ontario for a time with Mary?

Are you related to the Purdy family?

The grave is third from the left in row B.

I understand from a person from the embassy that the reason for listing the grave as "collective" is as a flight crew, they died together and so they will not be separated in the future, the grave is listed as collective. There looks to be 7 individual graves.

RE: they are there
There was an obit in the Oregonian today for a Robert McCauley. If you are interested I could scan and email you a copy of the obit. Looks like your name is one of those ones that gets spelled a lot of different ways. Such is the case of one of my Great Grandma's. Her maiden name was Iiams.
This obit today says his funeral is tomorrow and he's being buried in Willamette National Cemetery.

RE: thank you for the help
I noticed there are a few Macauley's buried at the Royal Oak Burial Park that are not in Find-a-grave? Charles Frederick, Christie Ann, Eileen, Ronald Neil, and Terry.

It does appear that after his wife died in the spring of 1906 they moved Williams body to Lake View Cemetery to be beside Harriet. This would explain why he is listed in both locations. I've deleted mine in Ross Bay.

One thing I noted is you have William being born on Ontario. According the Ross Bay Cemetery records from where I got my info, it has him being born in Sidney.

I know the 1901 census states he born in Ontario too, but his marriage record in 1869 also has him listed as being born in Sidney.

*Michigan, Marriages, 1868-1925
Name: Wm. Mccauley
Age (Expanded): 39 years
Birth Year: 1829
Birthplace: Sidney, Canada
Spouse's Name: Harriet Keenan
Spouse's Race (Original):
Spouse's Age (Expanded): 22 years
Spouse's Birth Year: 1846
Spouse's Birthplace: Hassawah, Canada
Event Date: 29 Apr 1868
Event Place: Niles, Berrien, Michigan

Hope this helps your research on the Macaulays.

RE: they are there
How about that. You are right, now the pictures show up.
I deleted one of the pictures for Mary's husband last night to try and reload it but Find A Grave would not let me reload the picture.
I reloaded it just now this morning. Hopefully it will stay there and not do the refuse to open problem later.

RE: Mary Macauley Lewton
Thanks for telling me about the pictures. Somebody I know told me this morning that she was concerned because the pictures she added did that to her and would not open.
This is the first time I ever had this happen to me. She just tried reloading the pictures the next day and then they were ok.
I may try reloading them later or tomorrow to see if they will show up. It is funny since they looked fine when I added them earlier today and showed up when I did upload them, but you are right, they don't show up now. Hmmmmm? Weird.
I will reload them later.

No problem--I did notice the misspelling and the wrong date of death, but was the right plot.

RE: many thanks
You are welcome. Was hoping I'd hear from you. I remember doing photo requests at Bath National for you. Hope all is well with you and your family.

Transferred the three I created at Woodlawn. As far as I can tell there are no descendents. It's possible Jefferson was born in Ontario County, but I don't know that for sure. We've got his mother's name at least. If I find more I'll send an edit.

Have some McCauley memorials for the town of Seneca in the New Number Nine Cemetery. They go back to somewhat early roots in the settlement of Ontario County. Not sure if Jefferson is from that clan or not. I'm thinking there may be more development for them, so I'd like to keep for the time being.

There is a professional baseball player from the early days of baseball in Woodlawn, James Adelbert McCauley. He's interred in the same section as Jefferson's family, so I got grave photos and added his wife as well.
