The various branches of my tree that I am researching are: Oliphant, Peer, Kivell, Nancekivell, Glover and Hendershot and Scofields.

I live in Halton Region, Ontario and have digitally recorded 4000+ gravestones, in particular local pioneer cemeteries and am in the process of connecting all the various pioneer family members through the local cemeteries.

I truly appreciate and thank everyone for all the hard work and dedication they do that makes this website the huge success it is. I have found long lost family members on this website, and have received emails from people stating I have done the same for them. It's heartwarming to receive those emails.

But I do have one issue that I would like express here. Quite often a person's name is entered but not connected to their family members. The family information is clearly on the gravestone or in the cemetery transcript, but some people are not taking the time to connect the family members. I'm not sure if their entries are done in such a quick manner so their numbers of entries climbs higher and higher. Please could I ask that accuracy come ahead of numbers when creating memorial pages.

Franklin Metcalf Springer
You created a site for Franklin Metcalf Springer born 1846. Find A Grave Memorial# 123035182.
He is a distant relative (step grandfather) and father to my dad's first wife. He married Mary Elizabeth Watson in 1886 and they had a large family including my stepmother.

This still allows time for him marrying Sarah J Mitchell Springer (1846 - 1884) and having Florence Winnifred Springer Jay (1876 - 1962) but we never heard about this. Is this the same person for sure?
Thanks Warren WEL (#47610058)

Thank you sooo much for you time. I will probably never get to Canada. My father in law is in his 80 s and this is his family so it is very much appreciated.
Happy hunting!

RE: Carradice / Boston
Okey dokey. Done. I loaded my photos for David, Jennet and their son William. And I created a memorial for another son, James, and loaded his photo too as he is on the same monument as the other three. These inscriptions are on the north, west and south sides of the monument. I can't remember if there is anyone on the east side - probably not or I would have taken a picture of that too. The stone is on the south side of the churchyard. In the photo of the red Carradice headstone you took, with the dogs in the background, you can see the white stone in the background right above the dogs.

Also, I don't think Agnes Bones and William Elliot are Jennet's parents. While there is probably a connection, they are too young. According to the info I have found, William was born abt 1780 and Agnes abt 1769.

RE: Ann Dempsey
Hello Patricia

Having come across, I then noticed the Find A Grave entries for what seemed to be the same family, albeit which suggested Hugh Dempsey as having been Ann's father.

Based on the info at, I compared the relationships recorded there with my own research on the Cavanagh surname in Armagh, and in particular in Seagoe Parish, and immediately noted that there was indeed a marriage of a John Dempsey to Mary Cavanagh, which was recorded in the transcript of Seagoe Parish records, of which I have a copy of those sections containing reference to Cavanaghs.

The Cavanagh/Cavenagh/Kavanagh surname in Seagoe Parish tended to be clustered around a few adjacent townlands, with the strong likelihood of those bearing it being related to each other. Some other Cavanaghs from the area, at various times, emigrated to Canada and/or America.

I appreciate your research may not concur with my findings, and am happy to consider any further records you have.

Best regards meantime.
