    • We are interested in our family ties in Scotland and the British Isles during the 1500-1600s.

    • Photo is my father, Joseph M. Dalrymple, born 1910, Knox Co, OH, d-1980. My father, "Joe", was one of seven children, a self-employed electrical contractor most of his life. Married Dorothy Ross. This photo was taken, possibly by one of his brothers but more probably by his friend Walt Hazlebaker. It was taken in Montana during one of dad's yearly elk hunting trips.

      My father's family were farmers, as farmers they utilized firewood for their winter heating. My father always enjoyed a wood stove to supplement his home heating and taught me to enjoy firewood as an additional home heat. I enjoyed cutting firewood with my father almost every Saturday during the '50s, '60s and '70s. He taught me about trees and how to properly trim a woods, making it more productive. I've supplemented my own home heat with a woodstove for over 50 years. Firewood is a renewable energy resource like wind, solar and hydroelectric power. We need to use more renewable energy and less oil, gas and coal in the future. Heating with wood can be a part of the solution, provided the wood is burned efficiently.

    is a village in East Ayrshire Scotland. It is at the westernmost point of East Ayrshire. The village of Dalrymple, Scotland is in the Doon Valley, on the north bank of the Doon River.

    The name Dalrymple comes from the Scottish Gaelic language, meaning "flat field of the crooked pool or river".  The village is relatively modern, although the parish and church of Dalrymple are older. When the community was first established around 1800, there were two streets, Main Street and Garden Street. The village grew slowly until the late 20th century, when council housing was built to house families from coal-mining villages in the area that were suffering an economic decline.
