Joelle (Colville) Colville-Hanson has Scottish Ancestors.


I have Scottish roots on both sides. The Colvilles who came to Illinois and Ohio in the 19th century. The Crawfords came much earlier to the Southern Colonies (17th and 18th centuries). I have ancestors who were pioneers, dirt-poor farmers, aristocrats and plantation owners who held enslaved people. I have ancestors who fought on both sides of the Civil War. I find the stories of all of them fascinating. I will often expand the tree way beyond my blood relatives because I find their stories so interesting.
This profile is part of the Colville Name Study.
I have just started a Colville Name Study. I am particularly interested in ancestors on my father's side who came from Kintyre, Scotland and founded a Scottish Settlement at Argyl.

No problem on the dressmakers. Already done. Just try to remember "location, theme" as the convention when those two things are the parts of the category name. :-)

Hi Joelle,

I sent you a message a week ago about the new-look Global Cemeteries Project but have not yet heard back from you. If you would like to continue in the project, please can you PM me your team(s) selections and your e-mail address for the Google group.

If I don’t hear back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer wish to be in the project at this time.

Many thanks,

Susie :-)

Hi Joelle,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,


Leader, Global Cemeteries

It wasn't yet called disability rights, but she created the predecessor to Social Security and other social service programs that included people with disabilities. She was also disabled herself.

One of my proudest possession is an autographed first edition of Twenty Years at Hull House in pristine condition. It was a gift when I graduated from graduate school in disability studies.
