RE: Mckenzie
Sorry I have had some computer and health issues and didn't reply back to you. I see that Dunner has answered your questions. He knows much more about that side of the McKenzies than I do.

RE: McKenzie'
Hi Dawn,

The only thing I know about Osa Della Lewis is that she was a school teacher in her younger years. She was raised by her McKenzie grandparents when her mother died. Osa went by the name Della and she died on Jan 12, 1926 at the age of 39 and is buried in Longview,Cowlitz County, Washington where she lived for many years. Her daughter Hilma married a man with the last name of Fitzinger? in Eugene, Oregon. That's the only info I have on them. If you'd like a copy of the Dunn book, send me an e-mail with your address and I'll see what it will cost to send it to you.

Saw you left a message for Glenda regarding the Mckenzie's. Your Gr-Grandfather Andrew Hemphill Lewis married Maryline McKenzie on Dec 24th 1885. Their one child born Nov 4, 1886 was Osa Della Lewis who married Charles Leslie Markham on Jun 25, 1911 and one child was born to them Hilma Markham abt 1913. Maryline died Jan 19, 1888 and Andrew remarried on Apr 27, 1898 to Louisa Emaline Campbell. They had 6 children that I am aware of. John James, Viola Dimple, Ivory Opal, Everette Bryan, Orville Leslie, and Alma Irene. Andrew, Maryline, and Louisa are all buried in Emily' Chapel. Maryline was my Gr-Grandmother's older sister.

Emily's Chapel
Hi Dawn,

Just wanted to let you know that I have been taking care of both sides of the cemetery also. Mainly the big hill side and the back of the small hill side since no one keeps it cleaned up. Someone else does keep part of the small hill cut but they don't get all the way up the hill.

I have documented and posted pics of all headstones from both sides here on find a grave as well as all unmarked graves that I have been able to document.

If you look at the main cemetery page, you will see that I put up a sign at the front of the cemetery. Believe it's the first sign in 140+ years! If there are other graves here, they are not marked with headstones.

I did get an e-mail from Rob Lewis this week stating that he found the Lucy graves that Carolyn was looking for. They are in Bowles Cemetery on the Bowles farm just south of Sabula on the east side of hwy 49. He also sent Carolyn pics of her families headstones in Bowles.

Unfortunately, I had a heart attack last November and haven't been able to get down there this year so I'm fairly certain the big hill side is completely overgrown again with weeds.

I have a lot of info on the Dunn's & Lewis's that my cousin Janet (Dunn) Kochevar put into a 400+ page book titled "An Irish Legacy - The family of William Dunn of County Antrim, Ireland from Pre-Revolutionary days in Chester County South Carolina to many present day Descendants." back in 1991. Many Lewis's married into the Dunn family and vice versa so I was very fortunate that she spent many years traveling around to find our descendants.

If you need any info on Emily's Chapel, feel free to drop me a line! Take care!!

RE: Lucy

Thank you for taking the time leave me a message. What you're saying does make sense. I was pretty confused. I wasn't aware of the layout of the cemetery or that there were two parts - maybe my family does actually have gravestones like my dad said. Do you remember anyone talking about a Carl Lucy? He was my grandfather, and the 2nd to the youngest; he was born in 1926. Here's his memorial:
