I am an avid family historian for over 30 years and a native Montanan. When I was working on my MA thesis in History ("Myron Brinig's Butte: Jews in the Wide Open Town"), I spent a summer transcribing the information from the graves at the B'Nai Israel cemetery in Butte (my home town).
Family names I am researching include:
Wilson - McWhirter
Chartier/Carter - Neveu
Bertrand - Kuether
Sutherland - Sollars
Brittain - McMinn
Vance - Cole
Douthitt - Moore
Dillworth - Stilwell
Find a Grave is not a scholarly website. I think it has many purposes including providing catharsis and aiding with the grieving process, helping people with their family history, connecting relatives, remembering the dead, finding burial sites, etc. Those who think it is only for locating graves have a narrow imagination.
Sometimes all we know about a family member is what is printed in an old biography or what someone told us. This acts as a foundation for finding, correcting, adding to their history. I believe this should be a friendly collaborative process where we build together a story as we find more information. I will make mistakes. Feel free to let me know and I will correct.
My philosophy on transfers is simple - I believe memorials should be in the hands of relatives, even if not close relatives. I am happy to transfer, in fact I am waiting for the relatives of the B'Nai Israel and St. Patrick's cemetery memorials to contact me to care for their family memorials. I'm happy to transfer to relatives.

Daniel Harrington and Bridget Barrett Harrington who are buried in St. Patrick's are
my great grandparents and I'll happily take
responsibility for them. I'm still checking to
see who else is buried where. So you may hear
from me again. Thanks so much for the pictures
of their graves. Theresa

Pam, thank you so much for the edits on this memorial. I appreciate your time so very much. Best wishes!
|Robert C. Sollars||RE: Picture|
The photo is that of Solomon and Martha Susan Giles Sollars. This photo was shared with me by their daughter Martha Serapta Sollars Marshall (1885-1979)Along with a number of fond memories.
Martha S. Marshall, a very dear person, was my 1st cousin twice removed. I visited with her several times over the years in Sonora, CA and in Lodi, CA during Sollars family reunions.
Your reply will be appreciated. rcsollars@comcast,net
Thanks for adding this remembrance for my 7th great grandmother. She was a Fille du Roi. She had two sons as you note. Both were victims along with her second husband Jean Michel dit Michaud. Only her daughter survived. Marie was never found after the Lachine massacre.
I am curious where this plaque is located that you say notes that the husband's and son's and step son's bones were found nearby in Lachine. I can't find a photo of this plaque. Do you have one?
