|Bio and Links|
I have been researching the family history of myself & husband for a number of years. Main names Garnham, Blaker, Major, Young, Birley, Campbell, Boyett, Bartup. See my virtual cemeteries for other main names.|
I hardly ever mind if any of my photos are downloaded but I would like to be asked and credited.
From time to time I add memorials of folk that are not related to our family, so if you find a relation of yours that I have entered it is always worth asking for a transfer.
For 4 years I helped to set up a One Name Study of the surname Blaker and now I just administer the tree that I am attached to. There are a number of photo's on the Blaker website that people submitted to us.
The link below will take you to the Blaker website, by clicking on Family Genealogy, then Genealogy Pages will take you to the site where the trees are, but you will have to register to view the trees.

From your photos taken I believe you are in England.
I just noticed that you have two memorials in a
cemetery in Orillia, Ont, Canada. There is no longer a Cemetery in Orillia called "ST. James.
You most likely mean "ST. Andrews St James"
The Cemeteries where joined a hundred years ago.
All old burials that had markers where moved to the new Cemetery. Unmarked Graves where left.
You should move your Find A Grave memorial to the new Cemetery.
|Emma L||John Major 1749 - 1810|
Josie, Many thanks for the details you've put on the site which have enabled me to track down the probable grave of an ancestor. I've inherited a memorial ring inscribed: "John Major ob. 26 Nov 1810, Aet. 61", which very likely refers to the John Major buried in St Mary and St Eanswythe Churchyard.
My late father, a New Zealander, had little idea of why the ring was passed down to him, although one branch of his family was called Senior and he thought this might be a changed version of Major (why, he had no idea). I've yet to discover when and why any of the Major family might have emigrated to New Zealand.

Hi Josie, What an incredible service you have done sharing SO many photos!! I'm new to the ancestry research, but your info has saved me a lot of time. Charles Birley & Sarah Ann Locker Birley were my great great grandparents. I wasn't aware the proper etiquette required me to ask permission to use grave photos, so I'll ask your permission now. Our tree is on ancestry.com - if you provide your email address I could send you a link - there are a lot of photos my ancestors preserved. Where do you fall on the tree? I was looking at photos of the Birley crypt at St. Michaels' in Kirkham and saw that you have photos of the individual 4 sides with close-ups of the inscriptions. Would it be too much trouble to email them to me at Yvonne@twc.com? I look forward to spending more time looking through all the goodies you shared on findagrave.com.

was curious if you were related or just happened to come across and post this memorial? His mother Marion would be my cousins second wife (Marshall) who looks to be buried there as well according to her death certificate. Any info you can give would be greatly appreciated in locating Marshall

I just messaged Carole Watte saying that David Puttee was also my 5th x great grandfather, and have seen that you are also connected to this family.
Looks like the three of us are all related in some way. My connection to the Puttee's is via the Pockett family (my paternal grandmother's maiden name)
Look forward to hearing back from you.

Earlestown, Newton Le Willows, Merseyside is named after him
Thank you for the memorial to Benjamin Ardley and his wife Sarah Harrington. My connection is the marriage of his daughter Charlotte to William Young. Benjamin and Sarah are my 4x great grandparents.
When one is researching from Australia it is so helpful to find sights such as this.
