ANCESTRY.COM USERS: |
Please do not use my personal photos or the bios on my memorials unless you ask first. I've researched and written all the information included on these memorials, some information is not included on any document found at Ancestry.
Copy and pasting is not researching!
I've been researching my family genealogy for over 20 years and love doing it.
Most of the memorials I've added are family.
I've also added some Scotland's Comonwealth War Dead, my interest stems from a great uncle that died in WWI. I found his record in the CWGC.
Transfer gladly done if they're not my family. Or will add any info or links you may have. If anyone has any corrections or info to add on any of my memorials, I'd also be happy to add it, if it is sourced.
If you are also searching these surnames I'd love to hear from you. I'm always willing to share factual information.

|Linda Monroe||RE: William Brown 1725-1800|
I totally agree with you. Looks like from researching that the families in Scotland and Ireland used the spelling Mcauslane. When they arrived in Pennsylvania, some used Mcauslane, or McCaslin or the names you noted. It is a bit confusing. I am taking your advice and trying to research where, if it did, changed from Mcauslane etc.
The quote is ""So long as we live, they too shall live, for they are now a part of us, as We Remember them." If it is okay with you, unless it is very special family quote, I would like to use it as well.
I'll keep searching just as you noted.
|Lynne Garrett||RE: Philip & Agness Criner|
Thanks so much for your response.
|Linda Monroe||William Brown 1725-1800|
Well, I did not know you were a descendant of the "Brown Family from Scotland". Just saw your name and was updating my records (hope they match yours), I was in Find A Grave for the above and others, and you have a particular quote which I really am impressed each time I see it. I was wondering if it would be okay with you if I could use the same quote? It is very meaningful. Please let me know.
Also, who was William's mother? I have two that someone entered and I do not know which one is correct. Please help.
|Lynne Garrett||Philip & Agness Criner|
Do you know where John Criner's parents, Philip & Agness Criner, were buried?
Thanks in advance for your time.
|Linda Monroe||RE: William C. McCauslin|
Just found one. William is a son of John and Janet McAuslan. He married Elizabeth Porter Kaufeld. She is buried in Pennsylvania. At least now we have one who immigrated to the US.
|Linda Monroe||RE: Elizabeth McCaslin/Mcauslan|
Yes, I am a Descendant on my Dad's side. I have found a document with the spelling McCaslin. Now I have to find it again. I am glad I have connected with a relative of the present. Let me know when you find anything and I will do the same.
|mcghee's coatbridge||RE: Mr and Mrs Savage 1811 etc|
You have found the correct information about the cemetery. It has what is called the 'old' section which surrounds the actual church which is still used and to the right hand side of the church, through a hole in the wall is the extension to what is called the 'New' part which is still old. Beyond that again is a very modern Holytown cemetery probably only used from about 1950 onwards. You may be able to pick that up on Google earth,
In that area all people were poor financially but rich in other aspects. If they had employment as you list they were actually better off than others but a headstone cost could have fed them for a year. There are a lot of gaps where you would expect headstones and they probably had wooden markers at the time which will be long gone. Your addresses are an excellent match to the church and cemetery. The 'old' and 'new' sections of the cemetery have had all the remaining headstone inscriptions recorded by the Lanarkshire Family History Society and unfortunately there is no record of a headstone for the Savage family. The next time I pass I shall take some images of the actual 'new' and 'old' parts to the cemetery and post them for families overseas to see them. It is a quiet peaceful cemetery so you can be content that the family are in a good place. Beside mine I might add!
|mcghee's coatbridge||Mr and Mrs Savage 1811 etc|
Hello Jill, Greetings from Scotland.
I have had a look at the record of inscriptions available from the headstones in the Holytown old churchyard cemetery. I regret to inform you that there are no names listed at all for a Savage family. On walking through the cemetery (it is quite small) it becomes very evident of the gaps between the headstones in the aisles. A lot of the stones as well are so worn you could never tell what the original names were.
I am sorry I cannot fulfil your request to find GGP's.
|Linda Monroe||RE: Humphrey McAuslan|
From what I can see, there is a Rice Family Tree and Caldwell Family Tree that both show that Humphrey McCaslan was born in Luss, Dumbartonshire, Scotland. This is the only source I have come across. In fact, this the first time. Since I have not encountered any McCaslin Descendants before.

|Tombstoner||RE: Harold Wilson|
The only information I have on Harold is from the 1900 and 1910 Census where he appears with his parents and of course the PA Death Certificate. I picked up his father from James F. Wilson's Civil War Pension file.
My grandfather, Hugh Wilson, was born in Apollo. My mother was born in Saltsburg, but her other siblings were born in Apollo. I am from upstate NY and have visited Apollo several times on family history research. The Apollo Memorial Library is an excellent resource.
Due to the large families of the time I seem to be related to a large percentage of those buried in the Riverview Cemetery.
