Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired engineer living in Michigan who fills in many of his days with golf and woodworking.

But my favorite retirement activity is discovering my family genealogy history along with the stories and oral history as it has been passed down through the generations.

I have documented 7000+ family member's genealogy using MyHeritage software on a private family web site. Now I am adding some of my ancestors to Find A Grave to make some of my findings public.

Genealogy records available for any branches of my family if you are related to one of my documented memorials. Also fell free to use any of my posted photos. Higher quality versions are usually available for the asking.

McDougall headstone
Just wanted to let you know I removed the photos from Keith's memorial page because they were not from Crestview. The one is still on Margaret's page though. Dolly

Keith E. McDougall
Hi Jack, I noticed that you have a memorial for Keith E. Mc Dougall at Crestview Cemetery. Are you sure he is there? I added several photos for him that I took at Harmony cemetery yesterday. There is a marker for him and his wife Margaret Mary Orr McDougall. Dolly

RE: Janet (Robertson) Campbell
I am absolutely sure David Campbell is in the older Blandford Cemetery. His photo has street signs in the rear that are just outside the stone wall (I was there many years ago to find my family). Also, there is a Flickr album of Blandford Cemetery with photos and David's stone is among them. There are a lot of Hill Cemetery memorials that need moving, and it is slow going to prove the adjustments. Thank you.

Janet (Robertson) Campbell
I mistakenly asked Find A Grave Edit to move this memorial to Blandford Cemetery (down the street), without giving you the chance to move it. I expect that Janet's husband David will be moved by Find A Grave in a few days. Sorry for the error. Thank you.

RE: James McBride - Parents?
How have you been Jack? I hope very well.
I hunted all thru my records = I do not have a wife for my James. All of my McBrides are buried in Harmony incl A William & Nancy. The only one item I found with the name "Rhoda" connected to it is Mem 61878299 for 2 yr and 1 mo old boy named Charles and it says he was the son of
James and Rhoda McBride and he died Feb 12 1882 - I looked at your memorials and did not see this
little boy connected to them.

Can you send me proof that James Malcolm is the rightful heir ? I have no middle name for my James. I just question that James William and Nancy are all at Harmony and Malcolm is at Prairie. Mcbride family has a lot of James and
Williams What if we both de-link our James
from the parents until someone can prove to us
if one or other or maybe neither is rightful son?

I sort of missed these debates with you.

Thomas Watt father of William Watt
According to his estate papers, will, and court records, Thomas Watt (father of William Watt) died Sept 21, 1837, not 1838. Thomas' wife Mary was probably dead by the time Thomas married his 2nd wife in 1825, but no death date is known for Mary.

William Watt 41260270
His marriage to Elizabeth Hawk is found in "Ohio Marriages, 1800-1958" at

His parents married in what is now Perry Co, Pa. I don't have a certificate, but I have a copy of the appropriate page of the minister's records.

RE: Robert & Margaret Atwell Photos
Thank you Jack. Because of the GPS cordinates you supplied me with, I was able to verify the idenity of the monuments.
