RE: Willliam Willock I don't think I can change this since you did it. Try clicking on the photo next to the message. It should take you to a page where you can correct it. I tried but I can only add it to my scrapbook.
You are more than welcome and I'd be glad to transfer the memorial over to you. Somehow I managed to put in two, so I deleted one and transferred the other to your name. I hope you are doing well! If you run across any new information I'd love to hear about it.
William McGarity d: 1839 Okay. Please look again at the memorial for this man. My understabding is that that plaque was supposed to relate to men in the Rev. War. However, the purpose may have been different than that.
Did someone in DAR confuse a father with his son and add a wrong death date on the plaque?
I think we need to check into the history of the plaque in order to clearify the issue.
William McGarity d: 1839 William McGarity is on the Rev. War plaque at this cemetery. I think DAR put up the plaque. I do not know where he is buried. Some people on this plaque are also buried in this cemetery and some are buried at nearby cemeteries. Z. Tom
Looks like you could use some help. I am the librarian for our local DAR. Let me check some things for you.
Are you a member of DAR? Do you know the actual burial place of William? Zoe
