I have been trying to find info on David J McMillan and wife Cecilia McMillan who lived in Allegheny Co., Penn. I think David is related but so far I've found very little on either of these people. What I have found is below, although I'm not sure if I have the right Cecilia. David J. had a son, David A. McMillan of the same location. David A. was married to Cheryl A. Lippert (per 1973 per wedding/engagement announcement). The announcement showed Mr. and Mrs David J McMillan living in Brookline. Cheryl died in 2009 at age 54 yrs per an Apr 2009 obit. A daughter of theirs is a Ancestry DNA match to me. She, however, didn't know much about her father's side except that his father was also David and she thought he had a sister, Nancy. I think this might have been a second wife instead. They all lived (or live) in Pennsylvania.
Any tidbits as an obit, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Well Vicky, you got the ball rolling. I finally found David J (Joseph) McMillan's obit. He (David A. McMillan, son of David J.) does have a sister, Nancy. I think I found his (David J's) family (parents Peter Hugh McMillan and Catherine "Cassie" McDonald - 1st wife was Emma Wait) in Ontario, Canada, which would fit with my McMillan connection in eastern Ontario. Need to do more confirmation since I don't see a Nancy in the census records for this family.
Thanks for your help
Dan

I found that David J. and Cecilia McMillan are buried at the Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Washington County, Pennsylvania.
I have been unable to find an obituary for Cecilia McMillan in the Pittsburgh Papers I have limited access to online. If anyone can help me find this her obit I would greatly appreciate it.
