Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since 2001. I have added both family and non family members. Any additions or corrections are greatly appreciated. I have also added people that had both positive and negative contributions to society as well as some that were just caught up in events that they couldn't control. I feel we can learn from their mistakes as well as their accomplishments. Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.- George Santayana

I like to do corrections so send me what you have, preferably using the edit tab located on the upper right hand corner of each memorial. I want the memorials to be as complete as possible. Due to time constraints I don't always reply but I will do them within the 30 day period.

Note: As of 2/23/14 I should be all caught up with corrections. Please resubmit any that I may have missed updating the memorial.

May 12, 1956- A car was found in Warrington's Mill Pond with 4 people in it. The car and people had been missing since Christmas. (From Woolwich Fire Company notes)

Warrington Mill Pond. On the border of Mickleton and Woolwich Township. It's not even a mile from my house. I've heard the story my whole life, but never knew any details. Tragic. I hope I can find them for you.

RE: Gates of Heaven
hmmm. ok. I'll go to the Eglington office next Monday and ask them if they have a map. They might not have a grave marker, although they were young, so you would think that they would. ???. I walked up and down every isle twice. That's really sad how they died. Do you know where the accident was?

RE: Gates of Heaven
It's very possible they don't have a marker. Most of the graves there just have those bronze ground plates and over time they tend to sink into the ground... or get stolen because they're bronze. It's not a very large cemetery, which is why I was able to look twice. If you can find out anything, I'll be happy to go back... it's not far at all. Gates of Heaven is owned by Eglington Cemetery 423-0441. Good Luck!

Hi Big Ern, I searched this cemetery today (twice) and could not find Pearl Butcher, Betty Johnson or Emily and James Lawrence. I found an Elizabeth Johnson, but she died in 1961. Sorry! Rich.

If you've taken over Alberta's memorials, I was wondering if you could pass over to me #11129262. He was a dear friend and classmate.
