Bio and Links
Bio Photo My father got me interested in family history as a youngster before I even realized it. Dad was quite an artist along with his other skills and as a child I watched him draw family trees with pen and ink so that relatives could have framed copies of them. Also Dad was never without his camera and he documented the family so thoroughly that my sister and I have a plethora of photos with which to try and preserve in a presentable manner. Genealogical research has been my thing for some time now and it especially got totally out of hand after computers came along which allowed better organization and retrieval of information.

Duplicate Cemetery's
I see you have worked very hard on some people for the
Dunnville Riverside Cemetery :Dunnville,Haldimand County,Ontario,
The actual Cemetery is just called Riverside Cemetery. It is in Dunnville,Haldimand County,Ontario,
There is a find a grave site already made for this name with photo of the entrance sign.
I know there is not two of them for I live in this area.
Please for give me, I salute you for all the hard work and I am sure you understand it can be hard with duplicate Cemetery's. And they can be transferd easily to the Other.

Thank you
James M

RE: Danford Family
Hi Ron,
Thanks for being so open and appreciative. It is great to know someone is out there.

I have been trudging through many centuries of family history on both sides, so much work continues. As for the Danford family, Margaret Danford was my great grandmother and helped raise my father and his three sisters. All are gone now.

After my grandfather was widowed and remarried, Margaret and his other grandmother decided to take and active interest in the family. Margaret had the ranch to run and is considered one of the founders of Billings.

She married Story and he didn't have much use for the children, from what my father said. He was older and they didn't get along. Willard sold the ranch when she died and got all kinds of money. The family rumor is that he cheated my grandfather out of the kids' inheritance.

Nothing like money to cause bad blood! I could care less about Willard's memorial but may rewrite the obit he dictated to the paper and has been reprinted here when I get around to it.

The man I really need to know about is Jack Lee Guy, Margaret's first husband. I have been unable to trace his lineage because it is such a common surname and have no town of birth in Iowa.

For this and other reasons, I am thrilled to hear from you and eager to see your research. Thank you so much for your willingness to share and supportive comments. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Feel free to email me at

Great to hear from you.

Do you know where any of these people are buried?
I can put the note on but it won't connect the people. Please advise.

William Thomas Johnston
Just to let you know, I recently added gravestone photos for William Thomas Johnston, who died in 1905 in Treherne, Manitoba. A person named
B. C. B. : : = ) had made a photo request for this memorial.
