Bio Photo The various branches of my tree that I am researching are: Oliphant, Peer, Kivell, Nancekivell, Glover, Hendershot and Scofields.

For some time now I have been recording the history of Halton's earliest settlers to the present day, through the local cemeteries.

If you are writing to me regarding a memorial page please include the memorial page number in your correspondence. Thanks so much.

Please feel free to use my photographs, I take my photo's so that others can enjoy them, and include them in their family history if they wish.

Louise Van Allen edit
Hello Patricia

Regarding the edit I submitted for Louise Van Allen ...

If you check out the memorials for her and her husband, you will see that

You have her husband listed as
William Van Allen
his first wife as
Minerva Van Allen

But you have Louisa listed as
Mrs Louisa VanAllen

Use of Mrs is explained in my message below but more importantly, when you have the surname different from the others in her family, she does not appear in proper sequence with William and Minerva on the grave listings page.

I was just trying to get her to show up with her husband.

Find A Grave Memorial# 148325603
I am currently working on the Carnochan family history and discovered your photo of David Sr. while trying to find the gravesite of his son David. I would love to have a 8 x 10 photo made of the lower image. Would it be possible for you to email me a higher resolution image? The online image is small and the quality disintegrates when I try to enlarge it. It is such a great picture of David Carnochan Sr.

Could you see about Arthur Torrie's(1787/1791-1849) burial record? I think he is my 4th great grandfather.

Last one, I promise, lol.

Regarding the decline where I added "John" for Mrs. Brown.

Here is the expectation straight from Find A Grave admin

"Use "Mrs" where the first name of the married woman is not known, as in "Mrs. John A. Baxter" for example."

Since you indicated in the memorial that Mrs. Brown's husband was John Brown, I added John to the First Name field.

Again, thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Following Find A Grave required protocol makes things easier for everyone and ensures that all your hard work finds it proper place.

Hi again

Regarding the decline for Ethel Langton, Find A Grave naming conventions as found in the FAQS say this about memorials when a person has been married more than once.

"Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field."

Mrs Langton's headstone does not contain the surname of her first husband which is why I submitted an edit to remove it from the surname field.

The same rule would apply to the memorial for John MacKenzie. His surname is spelled MacKenzie on the stone. Variations can be explained in the bio section.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Hi Patricia

Thank you for catching my mistake on the Edward Kelly family edits. lol. I was working on those late at night and got the father and son memorial numbers mixed up.

But I would like to explain what I was trying to accomplish with that family and also with a couple of your military men memorials.

Your Evergreen memorials for Edward Kelly # 134084744 and his children Helen # 134086094, Edward # 134086347 and Francis # 170260540 are cenotaphs. They are not buried at Evergreen - they are buried at Saint Peter's RC Cemetery on Ninth Line. If you look at your headstone photo at Evergreen, it says under their names "buried at Ninth Line Trafalgar". So that stone at Evergreen is a cenotaph for those individuals.

I have sent e-mails to Find A Grave asking that they mark your memorials as cenotaphs and when they do, the word "Cenotaph" will appear just under the Burial Fields.

It is Find A Grave policy that family links ONLY be attached to the burial memorial. If they are also attached to the cenotaph memorials, the result is a double set of links - which you can see has occurred now with Edward and Margaret's children. Find A Grave admin asks that for cenotaph memorials we indicate in the bio section that the person is buried elsewhere (can use a hyperlink to link to burial memorial) and to say that the family links are attached to the burial memorial.

That's what I was trying to do when I messed it up royally - I was trying to un-link your cenotaphs and re-link everyone to the burial memorials.

The same principle applies for military cenotaphs. When young men killed in the wars are buried overseas but are named on the family stones in their hometowns, those hometown stones are cenotaphs and are NOT to have links attached. As mentioned above, info directing people to the overseas burial memorial for links is to go in the bio section.

I am going to resubmit my edits for your cenotaph memorials and respectfully ask that you accept them.

Thank you.

Jacob Bastedo, b. 1743 -
Thanks for the great information on Jacob Bastedo, s/o John Howard Bastedo and Catherine Wetherill!
I see that there isn't much in the Loyalist information site, too bad. I was in hopes to documenting his parents. May I ask how you figured out John H and Catherine Wetherill? Am I missing something here?
Again, thanks for sharing your findings!

Thanks, the Phillips line is on my wife's side, and a line I haven't done much work on yet. We were scouring several cemeteries in Ontario earlier this month and found several. I haven't posted all our photos yet.
