Arthur Haywood & Michael Barry MacKay b. Melbourne Australia
Posted by: Paul Roberts (ID *****8085) Date: June 02, 2004 at 19:48:59

I am looking for information concerning two MacKay brothers that were born in Melbourne Australia. One is Arthur Haywood Mackay, b. 1859, the other is Michael Barry MacKay, b. 1862. Another brother, Robert St. John MacKay and a sister, Elizabeth Bell MacKay are buried in Medford, MA. Robert was my great-grandfather. The family returned to Nova Scotia and then moved to the United States sometime between 1888 & 1900. I have no other information on Arthur but know from my father that Michael Barry lived in Cannon Beach, Oregon and owned the water & sewer department there in the 1930's. As Cannon Beach was a resort town populated during the summer months back then, he might have lived somewhere else during the "off" season. I think that he and his wife Annie are probably buried somewhere in Oregon. Michael & Annie had a son, Howard Smith MacKay who lived in the Los Angeles area in the middle 60's. I suspect that he has passed on by now. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
