John: Thanks for your response. Sorry this took awhile, haven't checked the Kgfr. site in years. Yes this is the same family.I knew Ms.Eley and her brother Elmer McLeod when I was a boy in Kingfisher in the 50"s. They were children of Kenneth Malcolm McLEOD who was the brother of my gr grandfather Daniel Gordon McLeod. The family originated at Lingwick, Compton County,Quebec,the father Murdo John McLEOD and family coming over from the Isle of Lewis in early 1840's as part of British American Land Company colonization effort. They left there ca 1880's and spread over the U.S., spending some time along the Vermont/New Hampshire border (North Stratford)j. Ca 1885 DGMcL was in Hodgeman County where he was naturalized and homesteaded. Down to Kgfr;. with the Run of 89 and took town lots along the railroad tracks near the old York Grocery. How do you descend specifically? I have been to Lingwick three times. Lovely but no Scots now in the area. I have quite a bit of information on the family back to Lewis,provided by the best researcher in the Isles. In late July I am going to Lewis and hope to filed more but it is doubtful. Hope to hear from you. Daniel Gordon Webber
