RE: St. Brides Churchyard
Hello Peter - Thanks for your note. I have taken your suggestion, and posted my 2001 photo on the St Bride's Chapel page. I am also slowly adding a few more burials of people for whom I have record that they were buried there. James McKinlay is my gt-gt-gt-grandfather, for whom (for some reason) I have developed a particular regard (for him and for his wife Elleonora Cameron who lived long enough to have a death certificate indicating she too was buried at St. Bride's). If you are agreeable to transferring management of the James McKinlay memorial to me, I would be very appreciative. Though I have belonged to Findagrave for some months, I have only lately begun to participate actively.
Regards from Robert Hutcheon, Montreal #48291214

Quinn Family

Thank you for transferring all of the Quinn family to me! What a surprise and so very kind of you. I am thrilled. My oldest son, 34, and his wife are expecting their first child in September, a little girl, and they are naming her Quinn and her middle name Larkin. This has really made my day - no my week!! Thanks so much! If we can EVER be of any help to you down under, please let us know! I hope you have as good a week as I have! Cheers!!

Thanks so much for the transfer of Merritt Quinn. I found some very old papers today - many of them 100+ years old! I was so excited as much of the family history was well recorded. I look forward to doing the updates and hope you will come back and check out the bio when I get it finished. I also found a couple hundred photos most don't have names, but it has been a very eventful day - the transfer icing on the cake :-) You may hear more from me later! Thanks again!

James Cox
A request and a suggestion. Would you please delete the James Cox you posted at Union Hill Cemetery, it is a duplicate of what I posted in 2006. Before posting, please check to see if the entry already exists. Thank you, Warren A. McCarns Jr..

RE: Grandchildren
a correction = "at Downe" of course, and not 'Down'!

Thanks for the kind offer Peter, I think the ones I am looking for MAY be in the Cambridge area, but you can imagine how pleased I was last week with: *Amy Ruck (Sir Francis Darwin's first wife),*"Nain" Ruck (Sir Francis Darwin's 'first' mother-in-law, and a very close friend of Charles & Emma Darwin, both in Corris, Wales, and also *Richard Buckley Litchfield, a.k.a. "Uncle Richard" in Cannes, South of France.

These were on top of *William & Sara, North Stoneham and *Leonard & Mildred, Forest Row, and Leonard's first wife *Elizabeth in Putney Vale, London. Also the year of death of Henrietta 'Etty' Darwin has been corrected on Wikipedia, and where it is wrong in two ODNB articles written respectively by a 'Darwin' descendant and a trio of 'Darwin' expert scholars will be corrected from 1930 to 1927! You could say that Find-A-Grave is currently leading the way on the Darwin family; many thanks for your help Peter. Is there a Wedgwood buried at Down? Martin.
