    Notes 
    • "THE HISTORY OF THE GABRIEL McKENZIE AND RACHEL BLUBAUGH FAMILY OF MARYLAND AND OHIO" by Father Homer Blubaugh:

      McKenzie, Augustus "Gus" Stanislaus, born May 7, 1881, on Feb. 12, 1907, married Margaret Maud Wright, daughter of George Washington Wright and Eliza Ellen Dopp. Father Wm. McDermott witnessed their marriage at Holy Family Rectory, Columbus. After Josephine's death Maggie took instructions and became Catholic. Maggie was born Apr. 20, 1887, at Ripley, W. Virginia. She was an 17 year old graduate of Clinton Township High School. Since she passed the standard "Boxwell Test" Maggie had plans to become a teacher. When she was offered a teaching position many, many miles away by horse and buggy, she turned it down, not wanting to lose her future husband. The newlyweds were ambitious people and lived early in Franklin County, and in Worthington, where Laura and Anna were born. They raised their nine children on Rt. 310 after moving in 1926 from 3 acres on Tremont
      Road, just noth of Lane Avenue. Previously Gus worked for Sciote Country Club and took care of the golf course. In the winter he sprinkled the tennis courts to make ice rinks from 1918-20. He cut the golf course with a triplex pulled with his team of horses. Gus was a contractor - digging cellars and grading cellars in the Upper Arlington area. This was prior to 1926 when he also used slip scrapers for housing developments. He hired a number of men and teams of horses. Apparently successful, Gus developed ulcers, so decided to buy a 100 acre farm just south of Johnstown
      on State Route 310 in Licking County. The family hosted both McKenzie and Wright family reunions for many years.

      Maggie and Gus raised their family of ten children on their homestead: Josephine, Laura, Anna Reich, Ida
      Crow, George, Margaret, Grace Bowman, Winifred, Hugh and Thomas. Only Tom was born there. Being very education minded, the six youngest daughters all graduated from Alexandria High School. Maggie taught Gus the remainder of his deprived education. She taught her children many songs and school cheers that she composed herself. Gus died Nov. 2, 1966, and Maggie, March20, 1977, with burial at St. Joseph Cem., beside Josephine.
