Dorcy Stevenson
Made the suggested change. I tried to figure out if his wife is in the same cemetery (Irene Gertrude Stevenson) but could not find useful information. Happy to transfer Dorcy's memorial to your care if you are interested. Charlie

I don't have a photo, you are going to have to submit a photo request. I don't live in that area.
Good luck!

William Sutherland
Hi! I am researching my husbands ancestor William Sutherland I have see the photos on ancestry of his tombstone. I know that he was in the military and was at fort George in Maine . He also served in the East Indies and at some point either in the U.S. Or E indies he was wounded in the hand. I have also seen that by the age of 80 he was an office worker at fort George Inverness. Do you have anymore info on his military career? Do you know who his parents were? What did his son Alexander die from? We are from the Isabella Logan side of things in Canada. Any info would be great!

RE: Willam Bates
Dear cousin Sherry,
I came across some old notes I had on your 3 great grandmother Martha askew and her sister (my 3rd great grandmother) lucinda askew. After their mother died, the two sisters and their husbands ended up in court over the ownership of the Askew plantation in Illinois. It seems that Lucinda's husband, (my 3rd great grandfather) was somewhat of a gold digger... he wanted the plantation split in half, so he could sell his half and take the money. It would severely harm the plantations business, he did not care, just wanted the money. The magestrate even took Lucinda aside and asked if her husband was making her do this, she had no comment, so the magestrate had no choice but to rule in favor of the sale... Lucinda's husband took the money and moved to Missouri, Lucinda died shortly after, he buried her on the Missouri farm, and then promptly sold it and moved to a bigger farm along with a neighbor women he quickly married. My second great grandfather, Lucinda's son, left his father and never contacted him again. It took me years to find the remaining sibling descendants... they don't much like this little piece of family history, but I found it documented in Illinois court records. My grandfather told me stories about this side of the family and how his great grandfather stole Lucinda's family fortune.
For what its worth, I believe documenting the truth about the family history, good or bad is still the right thing to do.
Be well cousin.
William Haffner.

Sorry to trouble you again, Sherry, but would you please transfer Alexander Sutherland's grave to me too so I can edit the information. Thanks for all your help. So much appreciated, Linda

RE: Kirkton of Ardersier
Thanks again, Sherry. I didn't realise the photo was available from more than one source. I'll be more careful next time. The photo I have is of a coffin shaped tomb, so it seems at least they sent the correct image. Also on Find My Grave which I linked into via Ancestry, there is a reference to Alexander having died 7 November 1829. The location is given as Cromarty.

Do you know where this info has come from?

I so appreciate your help.

RE: Kirkton of Ardersier
Thank you so very much, Sherry. I hardly hoped these were my 4 x great grandparents, but the naming of the grandchildren confirms it. The only odd reference is to an "only" son, Alexander. They had a son (a twin) called, Hugh, born in 1800. I have friends in Ardersier who are going to look round the cemetery over the weekend to find the grave and take a photo of it for me. Do you know where it is positioned? I have a feeling I saw the grave at one stage and it was upright, whereas the photo said to be their grave (by the Scottish Memorial Inscriptions) is lying on the ground by a wall. I am so delighted. Can't thank you enough. Best, Linda

Kirkton of Ardersier
I found details of what I believe to be my 4 x gr grandparents William Sutherland d March 1845, Isabel his wife (they were at Fort George in 1841, so it is likely this is their grave) and son Alexander, which you have kindly posted. I purchased a disc from Scottish Monumental Inscriptions. Their inscription includes no dates, and doesn't include son, Alexander. The inscription on the image of the grave they sent cannot be seen. I have written to them to look into it. In the meantime, if you can confirm that the information you have posted is correct, and explain your source, that would be very helpful. I have a friend in Ardersier who can check out the grave for me, but I don't want to send her off on a wild goose chase.

Really appreciate your help.

RE: William Bates #42327706
Hi cuz, well William Bates is your family too, feel free to use whatever you like.

He is a very colorful guy, he went through a lot in his younger days and he developed an attitude about indians..... read some interesting war dept. records where they tried to convince him to quit hanging them in trees when he found them off the reservation. at the time there was no law against it so he ignored the requests. caused some problems with indian affairs and treaty signing.... some indian affairs representatives did not return from their visit to his cabin in the woods, he claims he had nothing to do with their disappearances. I am told everyone has one of these in their family tree... this one is ours.

You submitted this request at about 2 thirty this afternoon and just now you submitted it again. Did I not add your information quick enough? Sometimes it takes up to 30 days for me to make an addition to a Memorial because I get so many requests and I don't get on Find A Grave every day. Please consider this when you submit information and it takes time for it to be added. Thanks

re: Rose Family - Geddes

It's entirely up to you whether you include my biographical notes, but they could be of general interest as these Roses were chiefs of the clan (Elizabeth, the next in line, died just a year ago in Dec. 2012).
