Donovan Grant Milne 1908- 1996 Windsor, ON
I am totally lost.
I have "stories" that were given to me by my grandmother, about the history of the family, but try as I might, I cant seem to find anything on my famly.
My Grandfather was Donovan Grant Milne Born 1908 in Windsor Ontario. He married Grace Ruby Merifield in Windsor. He worked for the Windsor Star until aprox 1953 then moved to London and worked for the London Free Press until he retired.
His Father was Alexander Milne (sorry all I know), and apparently my grandfather was the second child (only living, Brother Alexander milne born stillborn).
The stories that I had passed down to me ... Apparently there was an aunt (name unknown) who did a geneology and was able to get quite a bit of history if it is true. The main part of the story was as follows, an ancestor fought alongside of Willian the Bruce, when the rebellion was quashed he went to France. While there he married well and became a french Duke. During the rebellion his family jumped a ship back to Scotland, but it never made it. His wife and children died, but he washed up on the shores of Scotland where he was taken in by the Clan Ogilvie.
If anyone can fill in any blanks - or even tell me if there was a line of milnes that this story represents, I would be greatfull. At least then I would know I am not wasting my time trying to find it.
