Gladys Mabel Shewan
Hello, I actioned your photo request today for Gladys Shewan. You asked to be notified if any other Shewans were in the same cemetery. There are 5 altogether. Gladys's ashes lie next to those of her husband Robert. His photo is included on Gladys's memorial page. There are 3 others that I have photos for:

Alexander P
Hannah Maude (wife of above)
Lurline Ann

Let me know if you want me to email them to you.

Robert Leslie Shewan
I found an IOOF pendant belonging to Robert Leslie Shewan dated June 30, 1932.
I know that Robert Leslie died in 1974 and his wife died in 1991; they had no children.

I would like to return the pendant to a family member.
I live in Vancouver, Canada.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Macmanaman
You're very welcome. It was a joy going through St Mary's. By the way I also found a Peter McMenaman in section East and made a memorial for him.

Shewan/Perry Family Tree (Duignan)
Berneice Shewan
I have been UN-successful finding my Great Aunt Berneice M. Shewan's burial /grave information.

She is the Daughter of Levi/Levy Shewan B 1880 D 1952. From Guelph, Ontario CA. immigrated to Niagara Falls, N.Y. I found Berneice's name spelled so many different ways. Bernice, Berenice. Including M. Bernice Shewan. Her birth year varies from 1913 -1915. The most confusing thing is her marriage to Arthur B. Gilman in Oct. 3 1931. He also married another Bernice Babbit. Last record I can find on my Great Aunt a Census in 1933. she was 18 living with parents Levi and Elizabeth Shewan 171 56th street, N.F., N.Y. I also know Berneice M. Shewan was in the Navy. She did pass at a young age. I would appreciate your help. thank you Linda Perry Henry Shewan/Perry Family Tree.

I have added some Shewen names to the above cemetery. I thought you might be interested. It's about 15 minutes from where Edward Travers is buried.

Do you have any other information on her? Where you might have gotten her maiden name or marriage license?

RE: Shewan Gravesites
You are very much welcome.
Since Hilda's name is not on the stone and there is room for two on the stone, I can't help but think her husband must be with her.
The staff at the cemetery were very helpful and may be able to confirm that her husband is there also.
Rather than asking if he is there, I would suggest emailing them to ask for his location. Cristina was one if the people we were in contact with. Her email is

I'll get you the location information that they have me for Hilda as well. I'm not sure if I added it to the online profile or not.

If he does happen to be in a different section let me know and I will gladly go over and look for the stone for a picture for you.
Let me know if there is any way for me to help!

I too have been lucky to have someone fulfill my request and go the extra mile for me. I recently had a request for England fulfilled (to the extent they were able to) and they send me several other family members in the same cemetery. It has opened up a whole new chapter of my family. I can only hope to make others as happy and grateful as I felt for my volunteer!

Grave photos
I saw your grave photo request for Hilda Shewan. I was there today looking and was unsuccessful in finding a marked stone, however found 2 stones.
1 stone had the names Charles and Elsie, the other stone only has the last name.
I will be contacting the office to have them tell me if Hildas stone does or does not have her name on the stone, and if I missed it I plan to return to gather the correct photo.
If you are interested in either of the photos I did gather, please contact me at and I will send you the photos directly.

Good luck with your searching!

RE: Peterhead Old
Short answer is I have no idea. I do transcription in Abu Dhabi so am not close to the Cemetery. Might be worth asking if anyone can go look.

RE: Elizabeth Shewan Hodge
I prefer not to put the pictures on the site that 'anonymous' has because she has no connection to the family. She just copies obits out of the local newspaper. As you have a family connection it should stay with you. You should ask her to delete her entry. The rules for findagrave state that there are to be no names of living people and the obits that she copies all have living peoples names in them.

Admiral Wilmer Earl Gallaher
I wonder if you would allow me the honor by transfering management of Admiral Gallaher's memorial to me, Memorial# 98410255?

I was a student of the Admiral's in Navy ROTC and would love to be custodian over his memorial and add more to his story, especially from a personal point of view.

Should you choose otherwise, I would certainly understand.

Thank you for your consideration.

Theron Jack Taylor Jr.
A while back you had requested a photo for Theron Taylor Jr. in Lakeview Cemetery, Cheyenne, WY. We sorted it out that his actual burial is in Ariz (Find A Grave Memorial# 95073815). However, there is a cenotaph for him at Lakeview in his parent's lot. See Find A Grave Memorial# 123486591.

Phyllis Carnochan
Woodlawn Memorial Cemetery, Guelph
I was looking through the Wellington County Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society cemetery transcriptions to find the stone for Ethel Shewan in Woodlawn Memorial Park here in Guelph. I found a Mary E. Shewan with a David M. Shewan on the same stone but can't seem to find Ethel. Is it possible that Ellen might have been her second name and that Mary E. Shewan is the stone you are looking for? Do you know if her husband was David? According to details, this Mary E. Shewan was born in 1870 so that might rule this Mary E. out.

I found an Ethel M. Clark married to a Shewan in the Palmerston Cemetery transcriptions but she was born in the 1900's so that rules her out.

Where did you get the details indicating Ethel Shewan is in Woodlawn? It is possible that she does not have a headstone which would explain why she is not listed in our cemetery transcriptions that are transcribed directly from the headstones.

Looked for more Shewans close by LLoyd's stone...but none found. Many stones are grown over. If you check with Pine Hills and find more, let me know the locations and I will look.

I didn't put up the photo on her page as I don't know if she is still alive and wasn't sure if it would be appropriate. Let me know what you think.
