Luman Latham's father

Thank you so much for capturing so many grave stones and resulting info on the Lathams of Leeds County. Luman is my 3rd Great Grandfather and I am trying to find out about his parents, particularly his father so I can my continue my search. I have been stalled at Luman for 2 + yrs ! Have you any info on him??

RE: Edit Memorial 115067907

I am in the process of posting images from all the extant monuments found on two visits to the Cemetery this summer. I have retrieved a copy of a transcription done by Louise I(rene?) Hope of the Ontario Genealogical Society in 1993.

See MS 451, Reel 105; item 3; Lanark County, Drummond Twp.

The only maps of the cemetery found so far are those for the Presbyterian Portion so in absence of an official Lot and Plot I am using the index from the 1993 transcription.

When I have completed posting the images and correlating the burial records from the Presbyterian, Anglican and Catholic Congregations I will be updating the Transcription and submitting it to the Ottawa Branch of the OGS and the names to the Ontario Name Index (TONI).

There is much confusion surrounding burials at this cemetery as after it was closed to new plots being acquired in 1872 many of the remains were moved to Elmwood Cemetery (mostly Presbyterian and Anglican), St. John the Baptist Catholic Cemetery or others. Also I have found some records here of Methodist burials that are likely at the Old Methodist Burying Ground in Perth and am working with the creators to have them moved to the correct place.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank you Shirley for the return message. The Memorial number #47115347 is actually your Find A Grave contributor number and I messed up there. lol Yes I was looking for the Levi who married Elizabeth Billings and looks like I've gotten something mixed up and have some work to do. Thank you for letting me know!

Hello Shirley,
I would like to ask permission to use the image of Levi Comstock and Elizabeth Billings headstones on their profiles I have created on Wikitree. Thank you for your time and making this a wonderful way in which to learn more about our ancestors.

Hi Shirley:

As you can see I have not only sent back Leslie and Frances Harbison Smith back to you but many of their family members as well now that I have finished my edits & made attachments. I prefer to have these
find a grave pages in roughly their original locale if possible.

Besides, I am often traveling and sometimes miss edit requests.

Thanks so much for making this easy...

Hi Shirley,

Yes, Hunter is her maiden name. I would appreciate the addition of dates also. Thanks for all your great efforts and help.

Hi Shirley,

Can you change the surname for Jane McLatchie (Memorial # 104686602) to Jane Hunter McLatchie? Her birth is 29 Mar 1793 and death is 11 Apr 1867.

She married Robert McLatchie (Memorial # 104686137) on 02 Jul 1813.

Robert's birth is 28 Jan 1789 and death is 7 Jun 1847.
