My Grandfather was James Smith MacPherson(born 9-22-1900) was 2 years old when he immigrated from Scotland with his parents. I know that he had an older brother Hugh born on 8-28-1898. Elizabeth was born 8-20-1907, Marion born on 7-24-1910. Charles (born 8-20-1912)was the best man in my grandparents Wedding on 7-6-1929 in Quakertown, PA. Charles A. and Marion MacPherson had two daughters named Margaret. The first one born 9-6-1916, died 7-30-18. Oddly enough, the second Margaret was born 7-30-1918.
James Smith MacPherson, my grandfather married Dorothy E.
Imhoff 7-6-1929 in Quakertown. They had 2 boys, James R. MacPherson and William Charles MacPherson. James married Doris and had 2 boys. William married Marie Hayes and had 7 children, Marie, Susan, Patricia, Joan, Constance, Dorothy, and William. I(Marie)have one grandchild named Emma.
Susan has 3 grandchildren, Pat has none yet, Joan has two, Constance has 1, Dorothy has none yet, and William has about 5.
I never met Hugh or Charles or Elizabeth, but I knew Marion who married Lou, who we visited while I was growing up. We also visited Margaret and her husband Stan. We all lived in Philadelphia, Langhorne, Levittown area.
How exciting this is!
