Edits
Many edits I receive are a copy/paste of info on Ancestry. Sometimes the info is incorrect, even if a dozen trees have the same info it doesn't make it any truer. Just because a Drouin record says 'Mary Merry of Bobtown' it doesn't always mean that the birth, marriage or death happened in Bobtown.

A memorial is complete with the information that is on the headstone.

Some information belongs on an Ancestry family tree, not on a memorial. If there is no date of birth on the stone, it is not necessary to calculate one so that memorials will list in the correct order. I know that many Find A Grave users will not agree.

So if it's not on the headstone, take any information on my memorials with a kilo of salt.

RE: Phelps Family group
Hello...well after your note abt Dorcas Phelps, I spent much of the rest of the afternoon going thru my Phelps line files to see if my recollection of him/her was right or wrong. I do not regularly record sex--kind of go by name and if married identity of spouse.
Dorcas was not a son---but a daughter. How did you know? you were correct.
That is not a common name here, but I did find another Dorcas in her lineage back in New England.This is UEL family who came to Canada from US..not from Europe, as a result of the Revolution.
Her death record is on Ancestry.com under Missaquoi Genealogy Transcriptions of the Freleighburg Methodist Church, 1964-1877. "Dorcas Phelps of Stanbridge died 25 and buried 27 Jan 1873." (image 164) of BMD register.
Quite an interesting day...thank you for your observation.

RE: Phelps Family group
Hello again: Made the corrections on these two Phelps memorials. Also added their son John Phelps memorial. There were other children of this couple but I do not have complete info on them at this time and I do not seem them in current lists at this "Mystic" cemetery.
I would appreciate your photos as I do not have any of this family group.... Thank you very much.
Best, D. Montgomery

Hello, Graceti
Thanks for your very kind offer to provide photographs for some of my family!

I've looked over the names you referred to and I would definitely be interested in creating memorials for the following:
Cunningham, Mary Matilda . . . OG04-07

Cunningham, Robert Hadley. . . OG04-07


Cunningham, W S. . . . OG04-07

Also, Agnes Louise Hadley Cunningham (Mrs. W.S. Cunningham) should be there too, I think.
I don't see her name in the list anywhere though!
She died in 1917.

Thanks,
Al

RE: Olivier Bourdeau and Flavie Labelle
thank you so much, I really appreciate that. I'll make one for Emery, he's a brother to my 2nd great grandfather Samuel "Arsene" Bourdeau, Samuel died in Minneapolis, MN in 1919 and he has no gravestone but I did get to visit the site.

RE: Ball Cemetery Pictures
Hello,
Thank you for your reply. If you do create new memorials, I would just appreciate it and I will add them to my family. I am still working on determining where 3 of them belong in my family. I will get some more censuses and hopefully straighten it out. This is a busy time of the year, what with getting to my gardening and opening up my camp for the summer, but it is never too busy to do genealogy!!
