Heaps Family in Linwood Park If you will be so kind as to suffer my explanation I think we together can get this family straight. You have sisters identified as wives and wives as children, and doubled up individual stones. I will give you a correction with each individual memorial through the system, but I thought it would be helpful to outline it here.
Andrew and Agnes (Simpson) Heaps [#28060617 & 28060623] were Scottish immigrants and the parents of James Simpson Heaps [#28087277], Robert Heaps [#28060542], and Margaret "Maggie" (Heaps) Brunton , who died in 1901. I don't know why her marriage is not acknowledged on the big monument but her death is recorded in an obituary in the duplicate [#102544683] created by Cathy. I will let you deal with that. Elizabeth, who was English, married James S. Heaps circa 1902. Maggie and William Brunton had a son Donald B. Brunton who was born in 1897. His second wife is listed as Maggie. I think that Donald is the one that paid for the matching monuments. I am going to call the cemetery today and verify that theory, and see which Maggie the small marker is for. Some of your memorials have the big marker for George Heaps paired with them, when they should have the bigger one for Andrew. I have posted a photo on Donald's memorial [#28085542] that shows the positions of the smaller markers. They face the James and Maggie side of the big monument. Thanks for helping me fix this! -Rebecca
George Redman's Memorial A SAC is "Suggest a Correction" which is the manner in which other contributors on here send you a message (by clicking the "edit" button on their memorial).
Anywho, you have a message on the above's memorial and I sent you a SAC (which should have gone to whatever email address you have listed on Find A Grave) concerning what someone else had sent you on him.
RE: Sheffield, Elisha & Ann I also hate to see the ones that are not taken care of. I was at one this afternoon that is just a field, no markers or anything. Supposedly the bodies and markers had all been moved years ago, but there is nothing there to indicate such information. The library is close by so I stopped in and asked about it. Now I am waiting for information from them. I do not live in that town so am not familiar with the history. I had thought that I would take a drive and do something nice. Anyway, thank you again for taking time out of your schedule and doing a thorough search for me.
Sheffield, Elisha & Ann Thank you so much for your valiant efforts in searching for their headstones! I had no idea that the graveyard was/is in ruins. I very much appreciate your extra search efforts.
