Portland, Rideau Lakes Twp., Leeds County, Ontario, Canada|
I've been working on my wife's and my ancestry for a few years now. The majority of my memorials are in our backgrounds, however if related or not, I feel the more research done, and information provided to each memorial, as well as linking family members, the greater benefit it is to the next person researching.
Please feel free to use any of my photos, I am not looking for recognition. They have been taken to assist others.
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone.
The names and the dates are chiselled out
on polished marble stone.
It reaches out to all that care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse,
Not entirely on our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you.

|Melinda||Transfer of Margaret Fitzgerald's Memorial Page|
Thank you so very much for taking the time to photograph Margaret and James's headstone, and transferring them to me, as well! I appreciate all the corrections you had to make!
They aren't related to me :( but that's alright with me, I will take good care of their memorial pages. My 2nd great grandfather was named James Fitzgerald, born in Toronto around 1845. My research has come to a dead end with him, no luck in finding his parents, but on 2 Census records he stated both parents were born in Canada. I'm just taking a guess that his father's name was also 'James', as my great grandfather and grandfather were also named James. I requested a photo of the headstone out of curiosity...
Thank you, again, Ron! I very much appreciate all your effort!
Your Findagrave Friend,

|R Cullen||Find A Grave Memorial# 52773294|
I was wondering if you are perhaps related to Thomas Joseph Rogers Find A Grave Memorial# 52773294 who is buried in
Saint Peter's Anglican Cemetery
Leeds and Grenville United Counties
If so we may be shirt tale relation as in my research for our family tree Thomas Joseph Rogers was my great grandfather's brother and I was wondering if you have been in this cemetery or have a complete transcription for it,since most of the other Rogers buried here seem to be relatives as well I am wondering if my great great grandfather and his wife are also buried here but no one has made a memorial for them. The online transcriptions for it do not list them but I thought it was a possibility and would like any information you can give me about this. My great great grandfather's name was William Rogers (1779-1847) his middle name might have been George and his wife's name was Elizabeth McKenzie Rogers (1805-1857). I look forward to hearing back from you on this matter.

|David Fuller||Louisa Haskins Kilborn|
Ronald, we are currently visiting Clayton, NY and will make day trips to Plum Hollow to find info about the Haskins and Kilborn families.
Wife, Rebecca is four generations away from grandmother L.H.K. One of the things we'll be doing is attempt to find the farm they work/owned. When L.H.K. died her husband moved to Iowa, then Minn and died near Minneapolis.
Thanks for the pic of L.H.K. grave we'll be there in two days for a pic for ourselves.
|Terry Goodwin||RE: James P. Abel|
You are very welcome, glad to be of help.
Thank you for photographing the Fred & Jessie Adrain marker. Much appreciated.
Thanks so much for the Jacquith marker photo. Hard to find volunteers for Canadian cemeteries so you get extra bonus points. I appreciate the time and effort you put in.
Thank-you for posting the photo of Hazel Pearl Stevens & Philip Preston Mavety's gravestone.

Ronald - Thanks for the tombstone photo of Hiram Baxter.
