An Oakland County Pioneer Gone
With the closing days of the old year death claimed another victim in the person of Kyeran McDermond, a well known pioneer of Oakland County. Born in 1823 in Garrymore, King's county, Ireland, he emigrated to America and settled in Michigan in 1836, locating on the same place in Southfield where the declining years of his life were spent. He was married twice, his first wife being Miss Fane, his second wife Miss Ratigan, who proceded him to the grave some years ago. His death was preceded by a lingering illness. He leaves two children, Mrs. Ed. Woods, of Southfield, and Miss McDermond, of Chatham, Ont., as well as his aged brother, Hugh McDermond, and sister, Mrs. Egan, and also numerous nieces and nephews. The funeral obsequies took place at the R.C. church, Redford, and the remains were followed to their final resting place by a long line of mourning relatives and friends.



This crest is an example for the name MacDermot. McDermott derived from this name originally so it is said.
