Thanks ever so much for the photo! He wasn't the man who I was looking for but now anyone who searches that name will know more about him and his identity.

Thank you...
Thank you SO much Wade for getting on this so quickly. It's helped me know for certain whether he spelled his last name with one or two n's. Though of course it may be just the way he chose to spell it vs. his father, but over time I may be able to figure that out. :-)

RE: Fort McKinley graves
Thanks. I decided to add a lot of info on the Highland family. I have started linking parents and spouses. However, it takes too long for the FindAGrave pages to load, so I am taking a break.
I have always had trouble with the speed that FindAGrave loads, so I eventually get worn out.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 108898588
I do not know how to post photos to your Memorial page for John & Mary.

I think I can do one for Daniel.

Yes, I believe that, with the correct headstone inscriptions, combined with what I discovered elsewhere, I believe the evidence is clear that I am definitely connected to this family. Mary's maiden name was Highland. She is the sister to my direct ancestor, William Highland. Mary married John in 1867 and the ceremony took place at her father's home.

I was not able to find out what happened to Mary because her marriage record misspelled Robsion, just like Lindsay Brien did. But with death certificates of her children and published family biographies, it is clear that I have the correct Mary.

Find A Grave Memorial# 108898588
I have been researching this family because I believe that the wife of John is my distant aunt.
I have suspected that the info about John and Mary was not correctly recorded in the 1939 book of cemetery inscriptions by Lindsay Brien. My suspicions proved correct.

Today, I personally visited Ft. McKinley Cemetery in Dayton, Ohio. It appears the Ms. Brien did not correctly record the names appearing on the stones. In addition, it also appears that she missed several of the stones that were there in 1939. The cemetery is poorly maintained, especially in the back rows, which have become overgrown with Osage Orange trees, weeds, etc. The cemetery also has been subjected to some vandalism.

The headstones of John & Mary are both broken. The headstone of John was difficult to read, due to weathering, and I could not reliably determine the inscribed dates. May's headstone was pretty easy to read. The headstones, as I could them state as follows. All of these headstones are next to each other, and all have been knocked over.

There is one small narrow stone marked J.R., apparently marking the family plot.
J. A. Robison [dates & age illegible]
Mary C. Wife of J. A. Robsion, Died March 15, 1885, Aged 35 Yrs 8 Mos 14 Ds
Daniel Son Of J. A. & Mary C. Robsion, Born July 4, 1881, Died Nov. 6, 1903, Age 22Yrs.4Mos.2Da.

Note that the book of inscriptions did not include the reference to 14 days in the age of Mary.
Also note the different spelling of the surname. The above are accurate transcriptions of the stones, but John's surname was incorrectly inscribed on the stone. That is the letters I and S were transposed on his headstone,
Also note that Daniel Robsion does not appear in the 1939 book of inscriptions.
None of them are inscribed Robinson, as stated in the 1939 book.
