Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching family history for over 25 years, traveling far and wide to visit historical societies, museums, old homesteads and grave sites. I believe the people gone before us deserve to be remembered as part of the history of our planet.

The assumption is that the "dead" have no right to privacy, but I consider it the better part to respect those who have passed, and so take care in what information I post.

I'm happy to transfer memorials if the person is not related to me. There's no sense in me hanging on to memorials I've added where I don't know the individuals. The important thing is that the person in the memorial is remembered, not that I alone manage it.

Please do not take pictures from my memorials, or extended family memorials where my name is under the photo, without my permission. These come from our original family album and belong to my family. Ask first, and give credit as to where the photo came from. I don't bite; just please ask.

RE: Clarke
So sorry to hear that you have been feeling unwell. The weather has been funky lately which is what is being everyone here where I am in Illinois. We went from 70s down to 20s and snow within 48 hours. At this point I believe Lilleth (Reuel's sister) to be a step mother, however Robert Creightney (her husband) had the middle name as Clarke. I have a feeling if I can break down the Creightney brick wall, I will find them related by blood somewhere. There are many Creightney lines but nobody else seems to have touched the one I'm running which connects into your Clarke line through marriage as far as a confirmed connection. Hopefully that wall will be broken down. I would definitely enjoy sharing any information I have and gleaning any that you have to share.

I will start off with please don't mind my absolute excitement! I have been working on a friend's genealogy when I ran across your account. The line I have been working on is a Creightney line and they connect into Lilleth Clarke (Robert and Louisa's daughter). Lilleth had married a Thomas Creightney and their straight lineage to my friend Adrian would be Thomas/Lilleth - Donald/Myrtle - Pauline/Philip - Adrian. From my calculations that would make you two first cousins 3 times removed. I hope you don't mind if I share screenshots with your name attached for credit to him of the family. He is just excited to be finding out his family history and finding a living cousin as he did not know much about his family history just that there was rumors to have Scottish and Jewish ancestry. I hope to hear from you soon.

Hugh Waugh
Hi, my name is Joan Clayton and I live in Western Australia. Hugh Waugh was my nanna's father.
My nanna was Jean Anderson Waugh from Girvan in Ayrshire and was married to Malcolm McInnes Brown on 10th June, 1920 in Girvan.
Nanna had 4 children the eldest being my Uncle Jim who I can remember emigrating to Canada, probably in the 1950's. There was also Aunty Jean, my mum Annie (but always known as Anna) and Uncle Melville always known as Bill. I always thought Uncle Jim was the first to emigrate to Canada, but obviously there were relatives there already.
I have three other cousins with family who live in Preston, Lancashire, England.
I vividly remember the story of Hugh drowning but never thought it was true until I read your article.
Would love to know anymore about the family.

Thank you
Thank you so very much for taking the time to go photograph my father's Grave, Robert D. Butler.
I live in Pennsylvania, and have been unable to get to Florida to see his burial sight. That has weighed heavily on me for all these years. You've given me such a great gift, words don't adequately express how much this means to me.
God bless you, and the work He does through you, as you make a difference with your actions.
Sincerely Grateful,
Kathleen Butler
