My great grandfathers are:

John Dickson - 1881 to 1943 born Teviothead, Roxburghshire, died Southend, Argyllshire
Hugh Cameron Mitchell - 1870 to 1945 born and died Campbeltown, Argyllshire
William Edward Hoy - 1884 to 1968 born and died Walcha, New South Wales
Henry James Grundy - 1881 to 1948 born Balmoral, Victoria died Walcha, New South Wales

I am very lucky to have also found all 8 great great grandfathers (and their spouses). 

In fact, I also have all 32 great great great grandparents.

I didn't realise how lucky I was with this until I started reading rootschat!!

Me too, Debbie!  Mind you, I don't know much at all about a few of them, but I have their names.  My luck runs out here with a few of them, though others have been traced further back.

I only have two of my four:

Mum's maternal grandad - Alfred COBB b.1883
Mum's paternal  grandad - unknown - her father was adopted. Irritating.
Dad's  maternal grandad - someone HILL, but I have no info on that!
Dad's  paternal  grandad - George William COLDRON b.1882

Alfred COBB was in the Territorial Army.
George COLDRON was an iron worker and prize fighter!
We have some town gossip that may lead me to my mum's dad's dad, we do know his mum's name at least! (Yey for the g.grandmas!)
The HILLs are proving to be a nightmare though! Going to have to get me some birth certificates ordered there...
Bassham, Booth, Chambers, Cobb, Coldron, Courts, Dernie, Farmery, Hill, Houghton, Lawson, Marsh, Snowden, Ulyatt, Wagstaff in Lincs/Yorks/Notts

Cottrell, Grice, Walley, Wade in Staffs

Dumont in Tolouse-France
