|Bio and Links|
I am originally from Royal Oak, Oakland County, Michigan, but I presently live in Plain City, Utah. My husband's kin are from Shiawassee, Clinton, Hillsdale, and Genesee Counties in Michigan, and in Vermont. Other lines go back to Ontario, Dutchess County, New York, and Kent, England. |
My father's kin, (McClelland) go back to Wigtownshire, Scotland, and before that, County Londonderry, Ireland. His Collins line is from Limerick,and Kerry. Another line is from Newcastle, England, emigrating into Ontario, Canada, before emigrating to Michigan.
My mother is from Clydebank, Scotland, and her lines go back to Donegal, Ireland, and Linlithgow, Falkirk, Perth, and the Isle of Islay in Scotland.
I am very involved in Family History and enjoy photographing and contributing to Find a Grave. I have researched many of the people that I have uploaded, using the links to connect with with others on the Family Tree.
I LOVE to transfer memorials to others that are more closely related than I. Please don't hesitate to ask. I am open to making corrections or additions. If you would like to replace my photo for yours, I am VERY HAPPY to take mine down. I am happy to accommodate in any way.

Nancy J is my son-in-laws ancestor and we have been searching for her, well, forever! We are hoping to get a transcription of the verse on the bottom of her gravestone. Are you aware of transcriptions that have been done already by chance?
We are also hoping to discover why she is buried in Oakland County! Her parents migrated during the potato famine from Northern Ireland (probably Fermanagh) to Philadelphia where they appear in the 1850 census in Kensington Ward 6. They land in Des Moines County Iowa where Thomas buys land in 1858. Nearby is James Hemphill b. 1801 m. Margaret Irwin who also appears in one of the pedigrees posted on the OC genea site (Elizabeth Heaton). I am assuming some kind of migration route??
Finally, I would be happy to take over this memorial.
Thanks so much
Anna Du Pen
I put his wife Mary McDermid's, death notice on her memorial and she was married to this John Mcdermid according to the stone and her obit.
It states his wife on the stone. I cannot find info to say this is an error.
Since find a grave is a grave registration site and we record what is on the stone then I will leave it as is.
If I can find further info I will place it in the bio.

|Cyndy Pugh||Samuel Oliver|
Sorry if I am bothering you LOL but I now have Samuels Mother Anne memorial but can't seem to find his father Samuel. He passed in 1860. Any clues for me. Thank you again.
Barbara you are a God send! I just looked at an Oliver one and it is my family too! Find A Grave Memorial# 90348507 Samuel is one of the wills I was talking about for the Irvine memorial. Margaret and Samuel were siblings. Maybe I can find his other sister Matilda Oliver Boyd! I won't sleep tonight! I am so excited.
|Cyndy Pugh||Irvine transfer|
It would be an honor if you would transfer Find A Grave Memorial# 90347938. They are my relatives! I have their father and brothers wills naming them but just recently joined find a grave. When I saw this I screamed out OMG! We didn't know they had more children we only had four listed. You would make my year if you would be so kind and transfer it to me. I promise I will treasure it and pass it on through the generations.
I am in Kingston PA so I'm not sure if I can help you find your family but if I ever can just ask.

Thanks in advance,
This is my gggg grandfather!

Your Find a Grave pages ahve been so useful to me. Thank you.,
I am contacting you as I have more information to add to the Family of William McClelland & Nicolas Paul McClelland. who were my Great Great Grandparents. They had another son
Who left Glen Luce at 16 years old for New York. Here are some more links to his achievements. He seemed to have been a very decent man and would have been my Great Great Uncle.
His son Clarance McLelland -
His Grandson David McLelland
His Great Grandson Jabez McLelland -
I hope you find it as interesting as I have.
Maybe you could update the Find a Grave page details to add him.
