This is my father-in-law's mother, Dorothy Marie Maybee, when she was a young girl. She was born in Toronto, Canada on April 1, 1907 and died in Vineland, NJ on June 14, 1971. She was married to George Balmer MacMillan, and had one son, Ronald James MacMillan. Her parents were Lorenzo Clarke Maybee and Sarah Jane Hyland.

Susan Alexander My grandfather's brother, Charles Clinton Alexander, Jr. married Lida Maybey, OCT 19, 1885, I think this was in Ironton, Ohio, but I'm not sure. She passed away on SEP 30, 1966. I don't know where she died. Her husband died in Wynnewood, Montgomery County, PA. Vineline, N. J. is not too far from Wynnewood, which is a suburb of Philadelphia.
Do you think that this is a relation to your Dorothy Marie Maybee?

Bridget MacMillan Hi Susan, I just found your comment. I have to see if I can change my settings so that I can have them emailed. I haven't found them in my genealogy. Dorothy's mother came from England. Her father was Dutch. There are many variations of their name within the family, so it's still possible. His family had moved to Canada several generations back. They were cattle drovers. If you can find a connection please let me know!

Susan Alexander Hi Bridget,
Thanks for the note. The only connection that I can see is that my Lida Maybe (I don't actually know how she spelled it) probably lived in New Jersey. She married my grandfather's brother and they both lived in Newark, New Jersey for a while. Both brothers ended up living in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania, which is just outside Philadelphia. I don't know exactly when they moved, but my dad was born in Nutley in 1921, so it was after that.
That's not much of a connection.
Still, I'm saving your post so that if I find anything further, I can let you know.
Take care,
