RE: Whitacre
I have seen your name, so I hoped you were still out there fighting the good fight! I enjoy reading the articles on Findagrave and the Illinois websites.

RE: Question re Charles L . Megill & family
I would love to share the identification of the individuals in my father's picture with the library in CA. I didn't see a link in their email so I would appreciate having it.
Thanks for your compliments. I love doing genealogy. Right now I am planning to do some research into our mutual ancestor, the mother of Catherine (Cosgrove) Megill. As I said in the Megill genealogy, it is probable that our Catherine is related to Joseph Cosgrove and his wife Mary North. I want to see if the Mary North of CT is in any way related to our probable Mary. Ancestry shows this as our line, but I am seeing too many things that don't really make much sense to me.

RE: Question re Charles L . Megill & family
Hi John,
It was good to hear from you.
My father, Alfred Landon Megill, took that picture in June of 1907 on board the S.S.Minneapolis. The ship sailed from NY on 8 June 1907. My father identified most of the people by writing on the back side of the photo which is mounted on heavy cardstock. He wrote the following. Information in () is my additional information.

Front row from left.
1. Edward Landon Megill
2. Miss Wells
3. Lenna Wood (niece of Amelia Hart Megill and Alfred's first cousin.)
4. Miss Tildene Fenn (who later married Lenna Wood's brother, Ivan Wood, nephew of Amelia Hart Megill and 1st cousin of Alfred).
5. Mr. ?

Back row from left
1. -
2. Miss Hutton
3. Mr. Clemens (Mark Twain)
4. Miss Marion Thompson
5. Miss Beatrice B. Howes
6. Mr. Vail
7. Miss Vail
8. Amelia Hart Megill
9. -

Where did you find a copy of this picture? I did send a copy of it to the Samuel Clemens museum several years ago. My father would be amazed to find that his photo had gone from his home on Long Island all the way to California!

I came across the following entries at the Find-A-Grave website and I think they maybe related to my ancestors, who resided in Scranton PA.

Alice Campbell McCarthy (Find A Grave Memorial# 104642737)
Margaret Mary Campbell Megill (Find A Grave Memorial# 99646352)

My great-grand father, Charles McCarthy, had a brother named Justin McCarthy, who was married to an Alice Campbell, daughter of Edward and Mary E. Campbell and sister to Margaret Campbell Megill (McGill). Justin died very young (approx. 25 years old) and left Alice with to very young children, Charles Justin, and Mary Alice (Strong).

Do you have any old photos or newspaper clippings regarding Justin and his family?
Any information that you can provide via this message would be greatly appreciated.

Is this an original bio by you or is it from a publication or website?

Mordecai Booth, a Forgotten Hero of the War of 1812

On 24 August 1814, as the victorious British army rapidly advanced toward the nationís capital, an overwhelmed American army and militia fell back from a crushing defeat at Bladensburg. News of this defeat was evident everywhere as a dazed and confused citizenry began to abandon Washington. Amongst the chaos most residents looked to protect their property and family. In that disastrous August, Mordecai Booth, was an unlikely hero and an exception in the midst of the civic chaos, for he was one of the last defenders of the capital. Booth was an improbable man of action, unprepossessing, a 51 year old navy yard clerk with a large family to support and no military training. Yet, in a perilous moment while others ran, Booth chose to stay and volunteer for a hazardous scouting mission.
