Taking pictures of the head stones is a stroll through time from the dates and wondering whom these people were.

RE: Willis n Percival Brown
Thank you so much Bruce for getting the pictures ... also for adding the picture of the cap badge. I’m surprised that Willis doesn’t have a Commonwealth marker ... he certainly would have been entitled to one. Maybe the family either wasn’t aware of that or just preferred to have the foot stone. Nice to know his grave is in a peaceful spot. I’m hoping to get up there this summer to visit my great grandparents graves and other family members buried in Greenwood and will definitely pay a visit to his.

RE: Willis n Percival Brown
Thanks Bruce. I felt so sad to see his memorial with nothing on it about his service.

Willis Clark Brown

Hi Bruce,

Hoping you can help with this. I noticed the memorial for Willis Clarke Brown .... Find A Grave Memorial# 44654999 in Greenwood Cemetery, Owen Sound. He had served during WWI. He was wounded in France and was exposed to poisonous gas which eventually caused his death after he had been discharged back in Canada. His memorial had no information about him on it so I sent an edit to have information added.

I was wondering if you happen to be at Greenwood Cemetery sometime in the future if you could get a picture of his headstone. I assume it would be a commonwealth stone as he is listed as a casualty on CVWM and CWGC. Here is the info from Greenwood Cemetery for the location of his grave:
G-W32- 19-E 3 Brown, Willis Clark Mr. 27 01/03/1921 27/02/1921
This is info is for his father so it is possible he is named on his stone:
G-W32- 19-E 1 Brown, Percival A Mr. 61 03/12/1924 01/12/1924
It would greatly be appreciated it. This man obviously went through a lot and needs to be remembered.

Take care, Margaret

RE: Re: William Huston 1823-1877
Hi Bruce. I just have the list of where the people are located - no info on who has markers. I will remove my requests if there are no more markers. Thanks for checking.

Hi Bruce .... thank you for adding the headstone photo for Wellington ... also for the edit to link him to his father. I noticed that you have a memorial for his mother so I also linked him to her.
Take care, Margaret
