Dog Days of August really brought out the worst in Gramp’s temperament.
Nothing seemed to please him. He growled at me for drinking all the
oatmeal drink. He barked at Cliff for riding his bike through the field
Gram and Aunt Tillie had taken pictures of tombstones and were gluing
them in the photo album along with the matching obituaries when he
complained that was a waste of film as well as space.
Diane McLeod would be on the side of the ladies in this matter as she
has taken many photos of tombstones and placed them on her McLeod
Family website at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~dimcl/gravestones.html.
If she found an obituary she also made a link to it.
In fact the square sandstone column tombstone with leaves draped over
top and two intertwining
Scotch thistles in the Trinity Anglican Cemetery at Sussex Corner
provided her with some very interesting information on Duncan Campbell,
as it stated he was a native of Braidalbin, Perthshire,
Scotland who died 14th Oct. 1846 at age 84 years. His wife
Margaret died 20th March 1840 at age 68 Years.
She has a link to an article taken from The Weekly Record of December
15, 1893 which gives in depth details of Duncan Campbell’s children by
his first wife who came to New Brunswick with him in the year 1803 and
of his second wife, Margaret, a native of Ross shire, Scotland, whose
maiden name was Morrison but when married to Mr. Campbell, she was the
widow of one Donald McLeod, who had received a grant of land in the
south side of the Kennebecasis River. Details are also given on the
three children from this union.
Diane set out to tell about her McLeod family's roots which run from
New Brunswick, Canada in the 1700s to Maine and Massachusetts, U.S.A.
in the 1800s and back to Canada in the 1900s. Her great, great,
great grandfather, Donald McLeod, arrived in New Brunswick sometime in
the late 1700s. It is unknown whether he was a single man or was
already married to Margaret Morrison when he arrived, but sources
indicate that his three children, Jane, Lydia and Hector, were probably
all born in New Brunswick.
Hector McLeod, the youngest child who was born in 1808, received a
Crown Grant of 100 acres at Campbell Settlement, Kings County from the
government of New Brunswick. He lived there in a log house and farmed
the land until his death on January 10, 1873. It is believed that he
was killed by a falling tree during a "chopping frolic" in Campbell
Settlement. He was first married to Sarah Ross in 1831 and secondly in
1849 to Margaret McKenzie.
One section of the website has many photos, another has obituaries and
documents. Yet another has links to many New Brunswick genealogy
related repositories which leads to many families.
Diane's McLeod family genealogy website includes interesting material
on many New Brunswick families such as Fowler,
Campbell, Daye, Ross, McKenzie, Buchanan, Jones, Miller and Stone.
Diane invites everyone to use the information located at
in their personal family research.
