Bio and Links
Recently I have started tracing my family tree, and in searching for the burial locations for my ancestors my family and I have found a fun and enjoyable hobby. My nine year old daughter views it as a treasure hunt. She even wants her own camera so she can take pictures by herself instead of using/sharing mine. Now as we go through towns she asks if there are any cemeteries that we need to stop at.

My favorite "treasure" that we have found was by accident. While searching through a rather large cemetery for a distant relative we found my grandfather. He had been killed in a car accident two weeks before my mother was born. I never knew when, how or where he died until I started tracing my family, and no-one was left who could remember where he was buried. At first when I saw the headstone I thought it was my uncle, as he was a junior, but I just kept looking at the date and knew that it wasn't right. Finally it dawned on me who he was.

I hope everyone out there is having just as much fun as we are. Good luck in your treasure hunting.

Edit a date
Hi Bob, thanks for all the info that you have posted for anyone to see! I was looking for a relative of my daughter-in-law's and came across an error in one of your memorials. The grave is #119568823, for Alex McLeod. The date of birth listed for him is actually his wife's. Thanks for your attention to this. Ellen

Amend- Burlington Cemetery
I walked about a quarter of the cemetery. I found several Amend markers, but no luck on Francis with the dates you indicated. I found a Francis J 1901-1902, but there is already a find a grave for him. This cemetery has many markers that cannot be read. I'll try to get back and look at the rest of the cemetery, but I was in the section he would most likely be buried in.

Clark graves at Cambridge Memorial
May I ask the source of information that has the three Nathan Clark graves at this cemetery? I noticed there are no pictures of stones, so I am wondering how you determined these people are buried there. Thank you much....
