Just took a 2nd look at the memorial. Mine is NOT a dupe because it was created before the other memorial.
It matters not if it family. The other one is the dupe.

re Duplicate
Sorry but it is one that I cannot delete because I didn't create it.

I have verified that there is no such location as HM-275 at Hamilton Cemetery. Can you provide at least a date of death? With that I can get a location to obtain your picture. Thanks

RE: Herbert and May Giles
Thanks for granting me permission to post your photo of their grave headstone to my Ancestry family tree. I have credited you with taking the photo and for giving me permission to use it with the caption edit ‘Photo taken by B.C.B.: : = ) and used with his kind permission’.

I have already sent you edits and shall send futher details and family links very soon. I doubt if I shall ever get to visit Canada agin so your help is very much appreciated.

RE: Photos
Bristol is 99 miles west and a 3 hour drive from where I live in London. I don't expect I shall ever go there. You could try posting photo requests on the individial memorials you are interested in and you may get a response from a volunteer who lives nearby.

Herbert and May Giles

Many thanks for taking the time and trouble to create memorials for Herbert Giles (# 116544998) and May Bell Brook Giles (# 116545047) who are buried in Sebright United Church Cemetery, Ontario.

Herbert was my Grandmother’s brother who emigrated to Canada around 1920 with his wife May Bell Brook Giles following the completion of his service with the Canadian Over-Seas Expeditionary Force 1914-18.

I would be most grateful if you would allow me to illustrate both their pages on my Ancestry family tree with your photo of their grave headstone. I shall, of course, be happy to credit you with taking the photo and for giving me permission to use it with the caption edit ‘Photo taken by B.C.B.: : = ) and used with his kind permission’.

I hope that this is OK with you.
Regards, David Neller (#47482893)

RE: Edits
Thanks, guess it must be her computer.

Added by Yandeau on Apr 28, 2015 12:57 AM

Help please.
Would you mind checking out these 2 memorials and tell me if the edit feature is there.
97038236 and 97038422

Another contributor said the edit feature is not there and there is a blank . When I checked them out the linking feature was there when I opened edit on these memorials.

Sort of like to know if others are having this problem and if you are able to see edit on the memorials.
Could be her computer?

Elizabeth Went edits.
Thanks for the "Elizabeth Beard Went" edits.
They are buried in St andrew/st James. Wasn't sure if you meant the St. James Anglican.

St Andrews/ St. James cemetery was Sometimes referred to as st James or the Orillia cemetery in these old obits.

Anyway I checked St. A,& St Jas. and the stone is there.

RE: Right info, wrong edit.
Still looking for the info for that edit groan, I think I lost it. Oh well will send when I find it.

Added by Yandeau on Apr 17, 2015 9:22 PM

Are you able to do edits on your memorials now. You said a while ago only using the edit tab.

I checked all my sent stuff and other people seem to be getting edits from the "Other" section.
Just wondering if it is your computer still not functioning.

Added by Yandeau on Apr 16, 2015 10:50 AM

RE: Right info, wrong edit.
Something must be wrong with my computer. I will leave stuff on your public page that I put in the "other" section of edit.
Funny but if I check the box that sends a copy, I get a reply saying it has gone out.
Oh well.
Thanks for letting me know.

Please remove the headstone photo you have posted to this memorial, as it does not apply to this individual. Thank you.

Right info, wrong edit.
Ralph andrews Memorial# 143538987

I send an edit just now for this memorial but OOPS I sent it via Edith Andrews..groan.
Anyway if you would put the info on Ralph's memorial that would be great. Just a matter of copy and paste.

Sorry about that, but I will look up similar info for the other memorial.

Mary Johnstone Memorial# 99370498
Good to see your maintaining cousin Mary's memorial. There is a little error on the stone regarding the birthdate. Obviously the stone was not put up until 1905 or after so maybe memories of her birth had grown somewhat dim. But she was about 4 years old when she died. See the 1871 Census return of deaths below:
Province of Ontario, District No. 42, N. Simcoe, Sub-District, Orillia and Matchedash
Nominal Return of the Deaths within last twelve months.
Johnston, Mary Female, age 4 Presbyterian, born Ontario, Died October ’70, Scarlatina (Scarlet Fever)

She was closer to 3 years and 8 months. Mary's actual birth date was Feb 14, 1867. This was documented by her brother, John Hardie Johnstone. Would you mind noting this information in her memorial? Her nickname was "Minnie" according to her brother.

Regarding her other brothers also on the Stone their full names are: David Robert Johnstone and William Thomas Johnston.

Sent you an edit for her. My source was her obituary.

RE: edits
With quotation marks on numbers in Huronia cemetery listing,there is nothing but a blank in my pending edits the correction is visible bit the original memorial info is blank.
In fact nobody can send edits on your listings in the Huronia R.C. cemetery because of the nickname field with quotations appearing as a last name.

That is why I put them on your public page.

Admin left a message on your page re this.

I sent the 3 edits as edits. Did you get them?
(The ones in Huronia cem)

Added by Yandeau on Mar 23, 2015 3:27 PM

There is something wrong with the edits I sent because of the numbers with quotation marks in the surname field. Nothing at all shows. I
unknowingly made 3 dupes but when you add the names and dates to the 3 memorials, I will delete the dupes.

If you have more photos of numbered stones, it will be impossible for you to find the names that match the numbers, even had I added numbers to the name field. There are now 1,423

so if you have photos, just put the numbers of any photos on my public page and I will send you the names which are already added.


143200317, Patricia A. Powers died November 14, 1954
stone no(3405)

143200791, Alma Kohn died December 21,1942 stone no(2800)

143200947, Edna Legros died December 3,1942 stone no. (2794)

There was one dupe, a re-interment and one misspelled name but I lost track of them so will send when I find them.

Computer down?
Can you receive edits on your computer now.?

RE: Thorne children
Thank you so much for your information. The third brother, William Gordon Thorne died 16 Sep 1916 and he too is buried there. I have a hard time dealing with the fact that my ggrandmother could be so heartless leaving those three little boys at Orilla. They were 3, 4 and 6 years old when she "dropped" them off and kept her 1 year old daughter. I always wanted to find out what Orilla says was wrong with these children when they were dropped off, or at least why they were left there.

RE: Thorne children
Ok, I found the edits I declined. There was an edit for George Thorne and Charles Thorne. Do you know what the number for their brother, William Gordon Thorne, was? I noticed that their were two entries for one brother.

Thorne stone numbers
Ok. I had no idea, wow. That really makes me sad. Especially since these boys were dumped there by my great grandmother before she married my great grandfather...another slap in the face for them. Why do two of them have the same numbers? Anyway, please send me the information in a message and I will include it in their Bio...I think it will be better understood if I write it in.
