I began an ancestor quest in 2008 for my father. All of his family records were lost in the early 1980s. He did not know anyone beyond his father. I have been able to trace his McKenzie roots back to 1780 (Robeson, NC). I found that his ancestors were Scottish, not Irish as he thought. Through DNA testing at FTDNA.com, he is part of the largest group of McKenzie (MacKenzie) men, called the MacKenzie Core, who can trace roots back to Alexander Ionriac, Chief of the MacKenzies who died in 1491. Now my quest is finding our branch of this tree.|
FindAGrave has been a Godsend for our family!

Mackie, thank you for your sponsorship of the memorial for Joseph David McKenzie.

I noticed SMSgt Charles E Phillips (Find A Grave Memorial # 88629704) interred in the family plot with Mrs Lula & Mr Lacy. I concluded that he is the Charles Edward listed as the son. Please advise should you know different.
Congratulations on all of your good luck with your family finds, and a toast to future successes.

Looked for Marshall Brown today, Section A plot #109 near 6th St. not found. Will look again another time. My wife and I met a woman named Carol who is a member of the cemetery assoc. at St.John's, she gave us a map and a general area.
She said that not all graves are marked. We will try again when we are in the area.
Sincerely, Kevin and Rochelle

I also entered photos for his wife. I plan to return and enter photo for all the McKenzie graves without photos and enter memorials for any not listed. Clarence

Thank you Mackie for the great pictures! They help make the memorial more complete. Volunteers are a great asset to the Find A Grave site.
I found the McKenzie family information very interesting, there are McKenzies in my extended family tree, and I sent the info to a male cousin.
Hi Mackie, I have added the tombstone's to Sydney & Ruth McKenzie. Thanks for being a volunteer. I was real lucky on this request, I know the keepers of the cemetery, but they were not available today, but I just drove thru the cemetery & low & behold, I just looked & there it was. Hope they look OK to you. Let me know if I can help you any further. If you don't like the 3 or each, you can delete any of those. Sometimes I kind of over do things.

I am so glad when I can help someone with family history research because I have been there doing the same thing and needing one piece of information to make it connect.

I did see three other stones and have added them to find a grave with photos. Casander, Jessie F., and George F. McKenzie. These were right near William McKenzie. There may be more elsewhere in the cemetery I didn't have time to search the entire cemetery. If you know of anymore buried there I will go back and look.
