    McMullan/McMullen & Orr Downpatrick, Down & Antrim

    Unfortunately, it seems a lot of Church of Ireland records were destroyed I think about 1922. I have found a little info from the folks I'm in contact with in Ireland. This fellow's father was Thomas McMullan, and Thomas' Father was Alexander McMullan born about 1829. It seems this Alexander's...

I went to that website, and found what is apparently another photo showing Jacques, Jacques wife and brother's all on what look like steps below the parent's. There's...

    Cannes, France need info for Charlotte Monod

    Thanks so much Julie!! I can see the months and years of death for Charlotte and Lucien, but I can't make out the day if it's there? I have poor eyesight. Do you see a day of death on the headstone for them? I had written the info at findagrave, and am hopeful someone might take a photo of...

    Charlotte MacGregor Todd was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1867, and lived in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota. Her first marriage failed, and she married a second time in Paris France in 1896 to Hector Lucien Monod who was an artist and art historian. Their youngest son was Jacques Lucien...

    McMullan/McMullen & Orr Downpatrick, Down & Antrim

    Thanks Elwyn!! The marriage record does not say anything about townlands. I have 2 different records. One is apparently just a list of marriages. That record has the marriage incorrectly listed as May 2, 1845. The other record is on a form, that was apparently transcribed by hand by one person...

    Lookup for Alexander Drummond fam 1841 UK census

    I can't see the whole census at familysearch.org for the 1841 UK census. The one I'd like to know more info for, as to who's on it, places of birth, occupations, etc. This is for the family of Alexander Drummond, shows as age 30, at All Saints, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland. I think...

    Dyer, Dyet, Diet, Dyatt, or Dewar???

    Thanks so much for the replies!! The occupations for Alexander Drummond have shown as basket maker, Chapman pedlar, china merchant, and licensed hawker, so they fit the traveller and/or Gypsy traveller profile. This is fairly consistent with my Todd family also, which my Helen Drummond married...

    Dyer, Dyet, Diet, Dyatt, or Dewar???

    One thing I'm curious about? As far as the pronunciation of these names, would there be a similarity with the way the Scots pronounced them?? So, would there be much difference in the pronunciation of Dyer and Dewar?? There seem to have been a lot of Dewar's in Scotland, a few Dyer's. Would...

    Have you ever found out you are related to someone famous?

    My Great Grandfather, William John McMillan, had connections to famous people. While he worked as a telegraph operator (probably 1860's) in Ontario, it is said he took the first message from Thomas A Edison, when he first worked as a telegraph operator in Ontario. Also, Great Grandfather worked...

    Dyer, Dyet, Diet, Dyatt, or Dewar???

    My Great Grandmother was born as Helen Drummond in 1800 (baptized 1801) at Old Monkland, Lanarkshire, Scotland if I have the right birth record. Her parents show as Alexander Drummond and Helen Diet on the birth record. I found nine other children who I believe were born to the same couple, and...

    Have you ever found out you are related to someone famous?

    This thread is a few years old, but I have found 2 pretty famous ancestors on my family tree. One was Helen MacGregor Todd. She was a women's suffragist in the US, and helped to get women's suffrage passed in California and nationally in the US. She had appeared before Congress, and had...

    How did you get 'addicted' to Family History / Gen

    Underneath, I've always had a curiosity about my ancestry, but had little time to pursue it. When I retired I was an addicted wood turner and sold miniature turnings online. After a few years, I gave that up and gave my equipment to my Son. With time on my hands, one day I was browsing some...

    Death record for a Stewart Drummond in Northumberland

    Thank you all so much!! I did get the original of the 1841 census from the library, and the birth designation for Stewart is an "S" and not an "I" as some transcribed it, so I feel he was born in Scotland. My possible connection is a little complicated. My family descends from Robert Todd &...

    Death record for a Stewart Drummond in Northumberland

    I found the website for the free BMD, and was able to retrieve the index. It had no age on it or place of birth, etc., so guess a person has to purchase the info? If there's another way to find this info, please let me know. Thanks!! Tom McMillan

    Death record for a Stewart Drummond in Northumberland

    I don't have a subscription to ancestry.com, but I see a death record index there for who shows as a Stewart Drummon. It shows as death in July 1844 at Castle Ward, Northumberland. There is some sort of record that I can't see. I've been searching a Stewart Drummond and wonder if this could be...

    McMullan/McMullen & Orr Downpatrick, Down & Antrim

    I'd like to take my McMullan/McMullen line back further. Presently, I have a marriage record for my GG Grandparent's, John McMullan and Margaret Orr. They married at the Holy Trinity Cathedral (Church of Ireland), Downpatrick, Down, by license with consent of parents May 2, 1844. I've been told...

    New from Washington State

    I was pleased to find this forum. I live in Washington State and have been researching my family lines for several years. I've come a long ways, but there are always those stubborn brick walls. I'm a retired insurance auditor, and my investigative nature has been helpful for genealogy. I...
