I just noticed this message that I missed earlier. This is my grandfather Garfield as I knew him. Which means we are distantly related. :)
I am still trying to track where great grandfather Howard McPhail was born, as well his father gg grandfather. I am planning a trip to Europe for my 65th birthday in 2015. I am hoping if they did come for Europe, I can go to where they were born and check things out.
Big undertaking but always wondered.
If I ever get to the Magdalene Islands again, I will check further there. Thank you so much for that info. I knew I was very young 4 or 5 when Garfield died.
