Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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, Limerick,and Kerry. Also Newcastle, England, many of them coming into Ontario, Canada, before 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. And I am open to making corrections or additions. If you have a better photo than one that I show, I am VERY HAPPY to take mine down for yours, or if you want the memorial of your kin that I created to be deleted, I am very happy to accomodate in any way.

Thank you so much Barbara.

Hi Barbara,
If you're not related, could you please transfer ownership of these 2 burials to me? I'm distantly related, and they are in my tree.

Thank you,

Thomas Bournes pic
There are apparently two Thomas Bourneses in the Oak Grove Cemetery in Oakland County, MI--your picture needs to go on the other one, The one who died in 1851 is apparently unmarked.

Finlay Ferguson 1826-1890
Hi Barbara, I see you have a significant amount of information on Finlay Ferguson in his memorial (b. Jul 1, 1826 - d. Dec 9, 1890). I was wondering if you had more information on the family in general. I will look for the census results you mention.

I believe his sister to be Ann Ferguson Heuser my 3rd Greatgrandmother married to Peter Charles Heuser.

When Finlay married Mary Elizabeth Stoll in 1879 the witnesses appear to be Ann and Peter's son, Alexander Heuser and his fiancee Elizabeth Roscoe. That's why I believe Finlay to be Ann's brother.

There looks to be another Finlay Ferguson and brother Alexander in that cemetery as well but I don't think they're the ones I'm looking for.

I am having a hard time finding any records on Ann aside from her death record. Birth, marriage, when she came to canada, etc.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks Deborah

RE: Joseph Stringer
Thanks for catching that. I corrected it, but since he was moved do you think I should delete it? Charles Stringer 6/26/1830 - 4/02/1907 was my G G Grandfather. I jump on any Detroit Stringers I can find as a possible puzzle piece to my tree. Carol

RE: Henry Bates
Thanks for saying so, Barbara. This exercise has certainly filled in some gaps in my family tree.

I'm not even half way through the photos we keep checking back.

Regards, Jan
