Bio and Links
I grew up as an only child, the only grandchild and only great grandchild remaining of the branch of the 'Mackenzie' lineage. My paternal grandfather provided to me the documents of the early Scottish settlers in the Lafayette, Walworth County, Wisconsin area on his death bed. I have kept those records for years since and only started to investigate the documents on August 31st, 2005 which was the first day I officially relocated back to Walworth County, Wisconsin and took a place just a mile or two down the road where the 'Mackenzie's are buried.

I grew up under my great grandmother's roof at 3019 Main Street, East Troy, WI. My biological parents were not around and my older half brother, who is not my biological father's blood he having only met his real father for the first time in 2006, was not around either. I grew up with my paternal grandfather, his mother (Ella Holmes, family buried at the Quaterline Cemetery in Troy Center, Walworth County, Wisconsin, now called the Evergreen Cemetery) and my paternal grandmother whose roots are from Ireland and the East Troy, Walworth County, Wisconsin area.

It saddens me that those who truly have Scottish bloodlines have been deceived by my biological father, my paternal grandmother and my older half brother who goes by the surname 'Mackenzie' but in fact is not.

God bless my Scottish bloodline and the USA!

I have removed Murdock as her father from her bio. I always appreciate information, especially if what I have entered is not entirely correct and I will gladly make any edits necessary.

Thank you for contacting me about updating this memorial.
