"Close to my heart you'll always be - Genealogy is the connection to you and me!"|
Your tombstone stands among the rest, neglected and alone. The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who 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 beat a pulse, entirely not 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. (Author Unknown)
BTW for those of you sending all the corrections regarding only one name in the first block of records for searching ease, even when the individual has 3 or 4 names, as in good Catholics who always have Marie or Joseph in their names (which is usually the first name) - be careful what you ask for - I'm working on the corrections, however if you search on Marie or Joseph now you get over 2,500 of my names alone. Good luck finding the individual you are looking for, especially if it's Marie and you don't know how many times she married. I find those of you insistent on this interesting - especially as Find A Grave refuses to fix my husband's relative who has no first name - his name is Spotted Tail and because he's famous his record is handled by management - they have Spotted for his first name and Tail for his last name. Not CORRECT, but what the heck, it fits in the box.

|MJ_MW||RE: George & Emilia (Amelia) Gosselin Gravel|
"Maybe there wasn't enough left of him to bury."
I hadn't thought of that....and now that you've mentioned it, I would like to un-think that!

|MJ_MW||RE: George & Emilia (Amelia) Gosselin Gravel|
Thanks for the lead on George Gravel's dad!
It looks like there must have been two couples with the same name.
What I was looking at for that headstone is this....
There are 5 names listed:
Sec-STB Row-1 Lot-11 Grv-2
Guillaume and Emilie Cantin Fournier's son
Amelia Gosselin gravel
Sec-STB Row-1 Lot-11 Grv-4
She is Mary Fournier Gosselin's daughter and grandaughter to Guillaume and Emilie Cantin
Sec-STB Row-1 Lot-11 Grv-3
Sec-STB Row-1 Lot-11 Grv-5
Mary Fourner Gosselins late husband died, according to a newspaper article, as a result of a dynamite explosion in ST Albans VT on April 18, 1895 and I've been unable to locate his burial site.
So, the remaining name on the headstone is Mary Eserine Fournier with no married last name of Gosselin and no legible birth year...Logically I could estimate that this is Guillaume and Emilie's daughter (sa mere to Amelia Gosselin) but there isn't any info on the cemetery records webiste and I'd hate to assume :/
What do you think?

Ok, I'm confused lol!
I've got George Gravel and Amelia Gosselin, daughter of Mary Fournier and Henry Gosselin but the dates for Mary and Henry differ then what I have record of.
Mary Esperine Fournier 1869-1941
Henry Gosselin 1860-1895
The dates for the two memorials I found are different, were there two couples with the same names?

Thanks Suki! I wanted to be sure before adding and linking her. I'd already added her daughter and son in law.

I have a Fournier question for you. Take a look at memorial 74968194.
I've identified George Gravel and Amelia Gosselin. Amelia Gosselin was the grandaughter of Guillaume and Emilie Cantin Fournier. Her mother was Mary Fournier Gosselin.
My question is Mary Espirine Fournier that's also on the headstone. I can't read her DOB and I cannot find record of her on the Saint Joseph's website with the internment list.
Do you have any info on whether or not she is Guillaume and Emilie's daughter, Mary Fournier Gosselin? My best guess she is and I keep foreting to call the cemetery so thought I'd ask you first.
And, I've found record for two of Emilie Cantin's brothers that passed in New Hampshire. They don't have memorials on this site yet and I can send you what info I have if you wanted to add them.
Let me know and thanks!

|Dusting Trails||Robert P. Morissette|
The obituary you have posted for Robert P. Morissette Find A Grave#126294675 is incorrect. Robert P. Morissette was born in 1925 and died Sept. 7, 1991. The obituary posted belongs to Robert Morissete Find A Grave#3612052, who is buried in CA.
|Bill Paschal||RE: H road & Acton Corner Cemeteries|
Hi Suki, I agree with your assessment. I have several requests in to Find A Grave for various things already
|Bill Paschal||H road & Acton Corner Cemeteries|
Hi Suki, Yes, these two are one and the same. I had asked the contributor of H Road to merge their memorials into Acton Corner, they said they would but would keep the memorials they had submitted. I haven't looked at Acton Corner since the last message so I don't know what it looks like, but, a couple of summers ago I walked Acton Corners and took pictures of all of the visible and legible stones.
|Jan Isosaari||RE: Theresa Ross Gonthier|
Thank you so much. Jan
|Jan Isosaari||Theresa Ross Gonthier|
Theresa was my aunt by marriage. Would you consider transferring her memorial to me?
