Bio and Links
Bio Photo ANCESTRY.COM USERS:
Please do not use my personal photos or the bios on my memorials unless you ask first. I've researched and written all the information included on these memorials, some information is not included on any document found at Ancestry.
Copy and pasting is not researching!

I've been researching my family genealogy for over 20 years and love doing it.
Most of the memorials I've added are family.
I've also added some Scotland's Comonwealth War Dead, my interest stems from a great uncle that died in WWI. I found his record in the CWGC.

Transfer gladly done if they're not my family. Or will add any info or links you may have. If anyone has any corrections or info to add on any of my memorials, I'd also be happy to add it.

If you are also searching these surnames I'd love to hear from you. I'm always willing to share factual information.

Nice memorials. I have added the Headstones to your memorials. I happened to record them while capturing a few rows in a section late last year.

RE: G. W. Edgeler - 75443801
Yes the British date readings - day, month, year. Date of birth was noted on the discharge document from the Merchant Marine. He was a Messman.

Edgeler/Howland marriage is volume 4a, page 2201. First quarter of 1940. Gladys M. Howland. Click on the page number and up comes the name of the spouse.

Merchant Marine doc must have been from a different site - Find My Past? Can't remember now. I should have downloaded it but didn't. Anyway that's all I had so I thought you'd better know.

Signaler. 92nd. Field Regiment, Royal Artillery, Signals Section.

All the best,

Andrew.

John Francis Burns, Jr.
Hi, Jill,

I was pleased to find your research on the Burns family line. John Francis Burns, Jr. is my cousin John Otto Burns' father (his mother is my great-aunt Lenora Grace McConnell). He knows very little about his father's family, as he was just a small boy when his father died. I will point him in the direction of your Burns bios on the Find a Grave website. He will be very interested.

Andrew McCaslin
Hello Jill,

I am writing biographies on the veterans buried in the Middlesex Presbyterian Church Cemetery. On the list of veterans I received from the Veteran Affairs office an "N. McCaslin" is noted. I believe that it is referring to your ancestor, Andrew McCaslin, as his headstone reads "A. McCaslin" and he served in the Revolutionary War. However, I am having trouble locating information on him in order to be able to write a biography on him, specifically evidence of his service. The information in your biography of him was incredibly helpful. However, I was wondering if you could please share your sources with me so I am able to back the information up.

Thank-you,

Alysha Federkeil

RE: photos
Thanks for your concern. We are only attempting to help preserve history. I suggest you consult a local headstone company and obtain their input.
I would imagine that it would take years of chalking to damage a stone. Have a blessed week.

Hi Jill, was wondering about this man & this cemetery. Refer to my previous message on your message board. As I stated before, he is the only one left without a grave photo in this horrible plane crash Would appreciate any help you could give. No one else seems to be taking any requests.

RE: McClelland
Hi Jill,

Thanks so much for sending me a message. Wow 20 years of research that is amazing and I am sure you have found some pretty interesting history. I have only begun on this journey, but really enjoy finding information as to where my family came from. Yes, I am also from the Brown, McCaslin, Thompson line from the information I have found from the Brown book. My mom gave me this book a long time ago and it's been sitting on a book shelf in my house, but when I started to research more I began to look through it which has helped a lot. The book I have was given to William Johnston McClelland back in 1917 from I assume a friend, Hannah Potts. Someone (not sure who) has written in some additional information (children, dates of death, etc.) that I plan to look into. Anyways my grandfather who is mentioned in the book was Stanley William McClelland, born in 1901. My grandfather had one son Robert Stanley McClelland (my father). However, my father died when I was very young and my grandfather died before I was born so I am pretty much relying on the Brown book I have for information and ancestry.com.
