I would be more than happy to transfer any memorials other than those I manage of my own family. Please use the Edit button to make sure I transfer the right person to you.|
Please feel 110% free to use any of my images for your personal use. However, I would appreciate a credit for the photographs so that other researchers can trace the image back to the original source.
I try to be as accurate as I can with my transcribing. If you see any mistakes, I'd be grateful for an edit. If you'd like to send me information to add to a page, please make sure you have done your due diligence. If you send me a date, you should have a source. That being said, there is a good chance that I will transfer the memorial to you because you now know more about that person that I do and will be much better equipped to deal with any future edits.
I have had a number of questions about when I took some of the photographs. Whenever I photograph an entire cemetery I do my best to compare the headstone information with a transcription of said cemetery when I am entering the information on Find A Grave. Below is a list of the cemeteries and the date when I photographed every visible headstone:
Saint Annes Church Cemetery, BC - Aug 12, 2012
Carmel Conception (new), SK - May 15, 2013
Golden Bay Lutheran, MB - July 25, 2013
Saint Ouens Pentecostal Cemetery, MB - July 25, 2013
Zion Lutheran, MB - July 25, 2013
Carmel Conception (old), SK - July 28, 2013
Oxbow Cemetery, SK - July 26 & 27, 2013
Oakland Cemetery, ON - Oct 3 & 6, 2013 (note: all headstones photographed but I did not photograph the large columbarium structure in the center of the cemetery)
This is a pastime of mine, so please understand if I do not get back to you right away.

Yes, the actual handwritten cemetery interment chronological record log listed him as born in Penn .....not always right, just based on whatever they were told at the time. The cemetery office would be the only one to know if a family member bought the plot and I would think they would have told you that had it been on the plot card. I only found a reference in the newspapers back then to a Henry C. Tunison who published atlases - contact info was Jacksonville, IL, which is about 30 miles west of Springfield. Obits were not published often in those years for some reason. I did see the 1880 census listing him as single and working at the rolling mills...right age and initials. I would bet this is who you are looking for. A single male living as a boarder would most likely not had money set aside for a cemetery plot so the county paid for it (generally $2.00!) and buried in the County Grounds as indicated on the cemetery log. I hope this has helped.

Hi - I added the info that he was 20 years old and died of typhoid fever, which came from the cemetery records. Unfortunately, he is buried in a very old section of the cemetery, in the single grave section. There are hundreds of unmarked graves there, sadly. I have photographed all the stones and did not have one for him. I also went through the archived newspaper files hoping to find a death notice but there was nothing. Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

|Laurence Overmire||Thank you!!|
Thanks so much for the great photos in Willow Grove. My family and I really appreciate it!
|James R. Freeman||RE: Denton Stryker|
I'm not related, but found a marriage license application for him and Miriam R. Gruber (one of my distant cousins). Not sure if they married and divorced or just didn't marry. She is buried with her parents (Find A Grave #64825825). She does not have his name, which leads me to think they were divorced or never married after filing the application (Berks Wills Office - V. 94, P. 458 - 10 Oct 1930). A copy of the application would show a date and place if they did marry, but you would have to order one or go to the Wills Office to see it. I found his DOD on the PA Death Indicies for 1955 , #21179 (which you could use to order a Death Certificate). His obit was found in the Reading Eagle, 24 Mar 1955 edition, but reveals little about him or his family. His name on the obit and Death Indicies is "F. Denton K. Stryker". That's all I know. Good luck in your research. Maybe some of these leads will help.
Yes! That's her! I had done a search for Spang but it hadn't come up - now I know why! How wonderful to have found them. Her maiden name was Kort and was born in Germany.

Thank you so much for, first of all, creating the memorial for my relation (1st cousin, 3X removed), and photographing her headstone. I knew she was in Saskatchewan but couldn't find any records. It's nice to have her linked to her family now. (Still trying to find her mother though - who I believe may be buried there as well)
Thank you also for the edits and then the transfer. I truly appreciate it all!

I see you have created a memorial for Agnes and William Harold Cushon in Oxbow.
Their son, Pilot Officer George Robert, J/4906 RCAF is buried in a Commonwealth War Grave in St Deiniols Church,Hawarden, North Wales. I have created a memorial for him and have linked him to his parents on the Find a Grave record. Regards..Mike
