I'll make a note to get a close-up of the Connor Ireland plot marker next time I am at Glenwood.

It's no big deal. I do it for the enjoyment of it. If I'm out researching a family grave site I usually take photos surrounding.
|Haberuvi||RE: Photos & dates|
You are very welcome for the photos. I appreciate all the serious research you've done on these people!
Re: dates: I always check the dates, not least of all to be sure it's the right person. But the stones can be wrong, too. Just recently, in attempting to resolve conflicting reports about how my grandmother's first husband died, we discovered we, and the gravestone!, all had his name wrong. It was apparently the name he used, but it wasn't his legal name. So gravestones are just one piece in what can be a complicated puzzle.
Thanks for all your efforts. You add a lot to Find-a-Grave!

Thank you for the wonderful information you provided on Major Maroun. I added it to his bio but omitted the living family members names for privacy concerns. Take care - Cindy

Her death registration gave the information that she had been cremated at Hatley. Here is the link to the death registration:
However yesterday the staff at Hatley reported there is no record of either a cremation nor a burial for her.
The Hatley staff recommended contacting the funeral director identified on the death registration as Sands Funeral Chapel, 1803 Quadra St., Victoria, BC V8T 4B8 Ph: 250-388-5155
Given that you are a relative Sands might give you more information. It may well be that her cremated remains were interred with her husband at Veterans' Cemetery (but without a marker) as you had first thought.
Let us know if Sands has a different burial location for her - we'd be glad to see if we can find the marker.

Sorry to bear so much bad news today! But I went to Section A, Lot 175 to look for the grave of Jacob Kolb. Unfortunately his grave is marked, as are the graves of two other family members beside him. I could post a photo showing another grave with the site of his just beyond it, but it's only a patch of grass. I'll leave it up to you to decide, just let me know.

A good source for free newspapers for the District of Columbia and other states is Chronicling America which is hosted by the Library of Congress:
If you are interested in Oregon or California there are two universities that host a free website for newspapers. Let me know if you are interested and I can send the links.
Check the database listing for your city, county and local university/college libraries. My city library has on line access to GenealogyBank that I can access with my library card number and pin. My county library has on line access to NewspaperArchives (which has decreased many of its offerings) which I can also access with my library card number and pin. I don't have on line access to the local university libraries, but I can check their databases for that they have available and go in person if I need to. Most of them have newspapers on microfilm. You would be surprised at how many local as well as out of state historical newspapers the university/colleges have available on microfilm.
I can also access on line the historical NYT from my county library.
So, check out the databases from the library websites first - your tax dollars fund them. One word of advice - the individual subscription to GenealogyBank has more newspapers than the library edition. I would not recommend a personal subscription to NewspaperArchives - there is information on line about why.
If you subscribe to Ancestry.com OR if you use it at the library you can use the Card Catalog. Choose Search from the top bar. Card Catalog is at the bottom. On the menu for Card Catalog look to the left. The 5th selection is Newspapers... Pick Newspapers and it takes you to a page where Historical Newspapers is the second selection. This database has the NYT, LA Times, Boston Globe, WA Post, etc. It is similar to a database that was offered by ProQuest some years ago if you are familiar with ProQuest.
