from: John Muckelroy in England e-mail:email@example.com
Up until 20 years ago,apart from my grandmother,father,mother, and brother,I had not heard of anyone else called Muckelroy. My mother was then contacted by a distant relative living in Derby, England who told us about her side of the Muckelroy family. My grandfather was killed, with some of his brothers, at the battle of the Somme in 1916 and my grandmother refused to discuss the Muckelroy family.
Imagine my surprise a couple of weeks ago when I came across this web site listing generations of Muckelroy's living in various parts of the United States of America. The other interesting feature is the use of the christian name John by Muckelroy's who had no knowledge of any other John Muckelroy. My mother discovered, through the British national records, that my great grandfather was named John Muckelroy but had no luck tracing our family before 1850.
I am 49 years old, single and live in Crawley, West Sussex about 25 miles south of London.
