|Bio and Links|
Retired in 2008 I began compiling our family history on Ancestry.com which led me to Find A Grave - and even more relatives.|
I'm a first-generation American who spent much of my first 10 years in Canada. Mum was 100% Irish, a first-generation Canadian with parents from Derry City. Dad was 50% Irish, 25% Scottish and 25% English, whose maternal line arrived from Co Longford in 1824 and paternal line from Co Derry in 1836.
I am only managing records that have some connection to our family but if you wish to take over a memorial of your family member, please do not hesitate to contact me through the message board.

|Sean Wilson||RE: Grier at Bank Burial Ground|
I just checked my old photos and don't have a picture. I then looked at the one I put up and now know why. The burial ground is just that. There is no signage at all, and I only got to it by asking a local. If you put these co-ordinates into Google Maps (55 2 16.279, -7 38 59.35), and then use Street View, you'll see what I mean. As for the other three names you added, I can't make any promises, as funds are tight, and I really need to be going there anyway to be able to say 'yes'. Hopefully, someone will pick up on them.
|Sean Wilson||RE: Grier at Bank Burial Ground|
By all means, use the photos. I have no objection whatsoever, and if they help fill a gap 'somewhere', then all the better.
|Lisa Ladouceur||RE: Emma Manning Armstrong|
Sorry about that, that's where I thought I put it. I think it's fixed now.
Hope you enjoy the web site.
|SheilaMC||RE: Greenlay & Bailey at Puritan Lawn|
My pleasure and surprise! I have been working my family tree, and especially the Greenlay side for my 1st cousin. I found Roswell's first wife buried in Quebec and the stone had a listing for Roswell being buried in Peabody and I went digging. I was uploading the photos when it showed I message for clearing a request. Roswell is her GG Grandfather - She is the daughter or Benjamin John Hilton Greenlay, Sr.

I was in Derry city cemetery during the week, and i took a picture of Margaret Fullerton Dunlop who died on the 10th of November 1922 aged, 60. I did not want to put the photo of the grave stone untill i checked with you, as you name you have is different. Is this the correct name.

|Graceti||RE: A thank you|
Great story Fay.
I'm happy to have been a part of it.
I often wonder, as I photograph headstones, who were these people?

|A.C. Rogers||RE: Jennie and Octave Guental|
Richmond Cemetery dates from about 1850. Sunny Slope dates from 1911. They are different cemeteries but people do get confused. About 10 years ago the boards of the two cemeteries established markers which show the boundaries. Actually Richmond Cemetery borders two other cemeteries, one older than Richmond Cemetery and one that was started much later.
It is hard to say whether people had tombstones of not. Usually the funeral homes place a temporary marker at the grave site, but over time they were usually lost. Also, some stones were at grade level and now are underground. All four cemeteries have gravestones that need to be repaired but that seems to be a problem these days especially for the older cemeteries.
Thanks for your note. I'm sorry I couldn't be more help for you.
