Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in Family Geneology for some years now. I have a Family Database that extends several trees. My interest is in old graveyards, and recording gravestones information so that they are not lost. The little pieces we put in here, might be the lost pieces of a puzzle people are looking for to complete their family trees in the future. If there are things to be changed, please contact me, and it will be changed to reflect the correct history. In putting on memorials, I usually put on a birthdate(deathdate minus died at age), because maybe you only have a birthdate, and the pieces will fit. Please note that changes will only be made, if you have actual dates to show for the change. My family trees can be found on Access code: you will need to contact administrator, due to privacy issues, for ability to see tree. It is still being compiled, as we find more families to record. If by chance, you spy one of your ancestors on my site, it can be transferred to you..just ask. I went to Gettysburg, PA, in 2012, and will also be posting graves of men not mentioned on this site.

RE: Lucinda Clark
No, sorry. I don't have any information. I just photograph the cemeteries. I have no genealogy connections in this part of the country.

What a lovely surprise to see your entry for my father, Russell Stibbard. His actual birthdate was October 27, 1917. My mother, Jocelyn, died this past January 1 (2015).

RE: The Woodbridge Area
Most definitely you are a friend! My Great-great grandfather Ralph Sutton (1840-1916) died on Clarence Street after a lifetime of farming in west Vaughan (concession 2); my grandmother Ethel B. (nee Sansom) Pugh was one of his grandchildren and was born on his farm in 1885. I've visited it; and other sites around there--but back in the 1990s. Will return one of these days and will like to meet you.

So sorry to hear about "progress" in that area. My Sansom ancestors were from the Etobicoke/Highfield area and I understand that the historic nature of that area was bulldozed back in the 1950s.

All best, Evelyn, for now.


P.S. The Suttons originally came from Derbyshire, England, and the Ralph name can be traced back there. When I was named Ralph in 1957 my Grandma Ethel Pugh was still alive and said that the name went back generations. Well, I didn't give it to any of my kids and neither has it been used by my siblings--so in my lineage it will disappear with me.

RE: Both Elliott Transfers
Evelyn, we are definitely on the same page. I am a big believer in sharing details on this site and making the people come alive; when you think about it, their lives and times were not ALL that far back. My Dad's earliest datable memory was from 1922, when John George and Lydia (Sutton) Elliott drove from Vaughan to Alpena, Michigan to visit family there. Dad is now gone 25 years, but I remember him telling how, as a three year-old, he stood at a window and watched as the Elliotts drove away for their long trip back to Vaughan Township. I plan on putting that anecdote on their pages.

John George Elliott is the only Elliott to figure in my ancestry. But I have tons on the Suttons and am already posting on them. My directly ancestry was in the Vaughan area on that branch from 1806 (when some of them arrived from Pennsylvania--the Keffers fed into the Suttons) until 1903, when my own grandmother left Canada for the U.S. Sorry to hear that "progress" is obliterating old York County. But its legacy lives on in someone like me, and I will do my best to return some of it.

I hope to work with you more in future.

Ralph Pugh
(Ontario names: Sansom, Sutton, Keffer, Kiefer, Castator, Robb, Elliott, Frost, Westlake, Ford..and others I can't remember right now)

RE: Mr. Hamner
Thank you for the transfer. He is my husbands great grandfather and my nephew knows where it is. We will do a visit and get some locations so I can set up the cemetery. There are other family there also.

RE: Perry and Flint
Thank you so much for the transfer. We truly appreciate it. We do live quite far, being in Southern Utah, USA. It's nice to be able to care for family, and hopefully find more to link as become available. Again, thank you, Karen
