Anton Family History
George Tobias Anton
son - Douglas (no middle name) Anton
grandson - Douglas George Anton

The grandson, Douglas George Anton, was the actual Anton genealogist.

I am the grandson of Douglas (no middle name) Anton and the nephew of Douglas George Anton. I worked quite closely with my Uncle Doug in helping to compile much of the information about the Antons. My mother is the daughter of Douglas Anton and Sarah Rice as well as the sister of Douglas George Anton. Any information you may have on the family would be of great interest to me. I would love to talk.

You are very welcome. I love genealogy and I love being able to post pictures of relatives as well as non-relatives because I have learned so much about all kinds of people from all walks of life.

I think it's great when people take pictures of headstones, add to find a grave, and information about people. Years from now, it will be something others can benefit from and I am all for that. As I have seen over the last few years, the older the headstones are hard to read or cant be read any longer and I think they need to be photographed while legable so future generations can see what was originally written on the headstones should they ever become un-readable.

Thanks for being part of find a grave,
Etta

RE: Janet Drummond Anton
Hi Vickie

I'm afraid I don't have any info that would help with the marriage of Janet's daughter Ellen. I'll keep a watch for it, and do some searches.

I see you know Janet was Janet Drummond when she married James Anton. Janet Drummond's mother was born in Scotland, and her mother was born as Helen Anderson (it was Ellen when they emigrated). Helen/Ellen Anderson born 1831 married Alexander Drummond in 1850, and they were in various places for a time until settling in London, Middlesex, Ontario. But, Helen/Ellen Anderson's mother was Elizabeth Drummond. Elizabeth Drummond was my GG Grandmother Helen/Ellen Drummond's sister, and Helen/Ellen Drummond born 1800 was married to my GG Grandfather Matthew Todd.

Well, this gets complicated, and I don't want to confuse you too much if you're not familiar yet with that side of the family. But, I can fill you in on that side of the family going back a ways in Scotland.

I am in touch with people who are related to Janet Drummond Anton's siblings. One is a lady in England who is related to Janet's Brother James Drummond, and another lady's husband in Idaho is related to Janet's sister Mary Jane Griffin Drummond Rogers. I also have info on some of the other children I can share.

Another Brother of Janet's was Anderson Drummond who lived in Montana. After he died a Son of his was sent to James and Janet Anton,and they raised Malcolm Drummond after he came to them.

I would be very interested in exchanging some photos. My email is: tomwdcraftr@yahoo.com

Thanks!! Tom McMillan (Washougal, Washington)

Janet Drummond Anton
Hi Vickie

Janet Drummond's Mother who was Ellen/Helen (Anderson) Drummond, was my GG Grandmother's niece.

I do have some ancestry info for Ellen/Helen, and I am in contact with other descendents from Ellen/Helen's ancestor's.

If you're interested, let me know, and I can let you know about relationships and such.

Thanks!! Tom McMillan (Washougal, WA)

Thank you Vickie for your efforts to locate a gravestone for Peter Hardy. It seems most likely that he was buried without a gravestone, as I have found for some people buried in the town where I live.

Thanks for going to the cemetery and letting me know that Amelia has no headstone. I appreciate the time and trouble.

RE: Anton
Now I understand. I wasn't sure what cemetery you were talking about when I read your first note. The way I generally do it is to go to a cemetery and photograph the markers in groups. Next time I go to Greenwood, I will keep an eye out for that name. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

The only building on the site is a chapel of sorts and most of the time there is no one there. That may explain why you don't get an answer.

RE: Anton grave
I searched my records and found no Antons. I am not located in Washington State. Are you sure I was the intended recipient??

RE: McGehee
Vickie

You are Welcome.

Three of us visited the Samuel McGehee, Sr. Cemetery this past spring. It was rather difficult to locate, but was well worth looking for. Someone was taking care of the old family cemetery, as it was not grown over. It was rather clean, and the old wrought iron fence had been secured with steel fence posts here and there. Larry Howard, one of the three of us, descends from Samuel McGehee, Sr.

You're quite welcome. I forgot to mention - I found stones for Edith and William Cowan in the next section over. Not sure if you have a connection, but their memorials are already listed here and I uploaded the photos.

Nancy J. Alley (Baxter Springs Cemetery)
Vickie: I noticed your photo request on Nancy J. Alley memorial at Baxter Springs Cemetery.

I'm curious why you are requesting this photo - are you related to her?

She is my great-great-grandmother through my paternal grandmother's line. In the event you have not located her husband (David), he is buried at Osa Cemetery, Barry Co, MO - he has a memorial in Find A Grave.

RE: Lloyd Spinning
Is it possible that Lloyd was a twin? 1900 census shows a Howard & Clara Spining living in Wilbur with a daughter born in Nov. 1899. I have been in this cemetery. It is extremely overgrown. Some people have cut back the Lilacs etc. but they just come back again. Anita

RE: Photo of headstone
You are very welcome. The cemetery was a very small one. Has no cemetery sign on it. Was a ways off of the road in a field. We went by it several time before we seen it.
