|Bio and Links|
|Like many Americans, I am a mutt. And proud of it. Down through the generations, I am the result of two people's love, not caring what their nationality is. My lines go back to England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Norway and Sweden. Oh, there's a little Holland in there too. :-) I have direct lines that fought in the American Revolution and the Civil War. I also have direct lines that migrated as late as 1905.|
I became interested in genealogy a few years ago when I went to the Scottish Games in my area. Since then, I have been hooked!
I consider it my own personal "treasure hunt"!
Because of being familiar with monuments, in the business for 15 years, I enjoy taking requests for photos of them. Have been doing that for a few years, now.
I have found many memorial pages of my family and have added my photos to them. The only time I have requested a transfer was when I knew the info is inaccurate. Which has only been twice.
So that's me, in a nutshell. I do have one question for anyone reading this.
ARE YOU RELATED? hehehe
PS You may use any of my photos in your own personal trees.

|Greg Matthews||RE: The Adairs|
Hello Sue: Excellent compromise! The six sets of two pictures each have been uploaded to your new Memorials. The last two, that were taken yesterday in bad weather, can definitely be improved upon. Please let me know if you'd like them retaken in better conditions. Thank You, Greg.
|Bear Hugs||RE: Coleen Adair|
Not a problem Colleen, since I've included the source of my info on the memorials anyone looking for Blair Family members would likely contact the cemetery office for any additional info there may be.
Thank you again for your Find A Grave activities.

The records did show graves for 2 people named Colleen Adair (different sections & plots) who died on the same day. Since they are part of your family I will take your word for it that there was really only one. I deleted one memorial - I hope I left the one with the right gravesite though.
Thank you for everything you are doing to preserve the memory of those that have gone before.

I did find a gravestone in Lot OLD/1/03/002A/0016 for Francis and Irmengarth Adair. The inscriptions on that gravestone, while much more promising, still do not match those stated on the Find A Grave Memorial pages (25391091 and 25391093). I've deleted my original uploaded photos and would rather not upload the new photos, because of all the discrepancies, in their place. Instead, I'm sending the new photos directly to your email address and you can use them as you please.
Hope this all helps, Greg.

Unlike the rest of Canada, Vancouver remains quite mild throughout the year. Although today it is raining and just one degree above zero. A couple of degrees colder and it could be snow!
There are three sources for Burials at this cemetery.
(1) The Find-A-Grave (Find A Grave) site at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gsr&GSiman=1&GScid=1968309&GSfn=&GSln=adair.
(2) The Cemetery's (MVC) Online Burial Listing at http://former.vancouver.ca/commsvcs/NONMARKETOPERATIONS/MOUNTAINVIEW/burials/aa-am.htm.
(3) And the Cemetery's Administration Office which can be contacted directly at 604-325-2646 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your request for "Irmcard Adair" stated that she was in Lot HORNE1/1/04/*/0082, that the spelling of her name may be incorrect, and that she died in 1985. The gravestone in that Lot shows an "Ivy Gertrude Adair" that died in 1985. Given that the Lot number, first initial, last name, and year of death all matched, I assumed that this was correct.
Your request for "Francis Adair" stated that he was in Lot IOOF/*/*/036/0009A and that he died in 1947. The gravestone in that lot shows a "Hugh F Adair" who died in 1947. It would be quite reasonable to believe that the middle initial of "F" could stand for Francis.
I suspect that the Find A Grave records may be incorrect because the MVC records show an "Irmcard Adair", a "Francis Adair", and even a "Francis Adalr", all in Lot OLD/1/03/0002A/0016. However, this Francis died in 1963 (not 1947). I'll go out and get a photo of that gravestone.
Stay Tuned, Greg.

I was updating his death and found St Louis Death record that list as the 15 not he 14. So could be either one. I visit the cemetery very regular and this area is very old and very few stones still there. My great grandparent are buried just down from him. I use death records, ancestry.com and a Bellefontaine cemetery site for the burial dates and map so I can locate graves. The area he is in I believe I have added all graves.
Hi, Lady. I sent you an email. Thanks!

Got lucky that the snow melted enough and that it was in the 50's today.
The memorials are updated. Thank you, thank you for cleaning these up!
