Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in my Family History for most of my life; My Father's side of the family came primarily from Scotland and England (although many remain there still), with some of them settling in Ontario, Canada, a few on to Michigan, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and many to California. My Mother's maternal side of the family gave us those who came from Germany and settled in Wisconsin; her paternal side gave us the people who came from Scotland and Ireland and settled mostly in Virginia. With time, many found their way across the United States and ended up staying in California, with others remaining in States along the way. Now, my children are researching their Father's side, who are mainly from Ireland, with many who settled in Connecticut. So, as with most people, we are scattered all over the World.

Wallace, Armstrong, Newman, Brown, Jameson, Youell, McCutcheon, Boyd, Hodge, Porterfield, McCreary, Crawford, Callison, Graham, Nelson, Young, Hobson, Stone, Hannagan, Parker, Allan, Ogilvie, Colleby, White, Place, Gilders, Graf, Netcher, Schuster, Schultz, Keller, Debrey, Board, McCann, Phelon, Gregan, Hayes…...

and, of course, all of the families who joined ours by marriages.....Binford, Coffman, Craig, Devenny, Steptoe, Yancey, Glass, Glover, Guerrant, Shiflett, Chewning, Fry, Via, Sitlington, Gorman, Campbell, Dyche, Sherman, Bretschneider, Fassett, Moore, Thompson, Duarte, Correia.....

The more I find, the more there is yet to find.

John Graham Davidson
Here's a small article I found in a Staunton, VA paper re his marriage to Lillian Philips. It has some info on his education you might like to have:

It's on page 3 if it doesn't open correctly.

RE: Wallace-Graham
Hi cousin,
Robert Wallace and wife Esther are my 5th great grandparents. I suppose they would be our most recent common ancestors. I am just beginning to learn about them. I do have a tree at ancestry.com; My username there is mattandkim17.

Mexico Missouri Message, Mexico, Audrain County, Missouri, Thursday, October 17, 1901; Volume 2, Number 50.

Deaths.

Mrs. Mollie Crawford, of this city, ill for a number of months with cancer, died last Friday. She was a member of the Presbyterian church, an excellent woman and devoted Christian. The funeral was preached by Rev. A. A. Wallace and the remains taken to South Fork, in Monroe county, and laid by the side of her husband, who preceded her to the grave several years ago.

RE: Pvt Charles Samuel Place
Dear Sandra,
I try to leave "flowers" for every veteran as they all have done so much for our country, especially those we have lost in the wars, which is always so very sad. My dad is a WWII Vet who will be 90 next month, is wheelchair bound and says he is "older than dirt", but I have tried to let him know how much it meant to me that he served in the Army Air Corps in WWII. He was shot down in the South Pacific in 1945, only one of two men who survived and doesn't like to discuss it, but I want him to know how proud I am of him for all he has done. They are all going to be gone much too soon; I try to at least give them & the others from past wars (and wars that came after) acknowledgement for their service for we wouldn't be America without them. I appreciate your kind email. Thanks so much. Take care.
With All Sincerity, Kathie L. Webb Blair, Portland, OR

RE: Lewis L Dyche Headstone Photos
I would be happy to fulfill your request. There is no need for a "Photo requests" I do it to help as others have helped me with my own genealogical pursuits. I have checked my photos and I am not satisfied with what I have. The cemetery is not far I will make a trip and get better photos.
