Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello, I'm a Retired person that's very interested in searching cemeterys around the Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, Canada Area. I'm also into Genealogy.
I put a lot of research into each person's history for the tombstone.
I try to be correct on all information, but I do make mistakes the odd time.
So if anybody notices a error please inform me & I will gladly correct it.

RE: Albrights

I have transferred control to you so that you can maintain them better than I have.

Best regards,

Rebecca Galbraith
I appreciate your interest in supplying a photo of the stone for Rebecca Galbraith, but she is buried in the Dutton, Ontario cemetery and the photo you added is in the Kinzie-Bean Cemetery at Doon.
I was the one who installed that stone with the names of the children on the back. I did that to preserve the names of the children for Dilman and wife.
With all due respect, I would prefer that you remove that photo as I would like the one where she is actually buried and from the Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid I see that there is a stone for her in Fairview Cemetery, Dutton. I was there once but unfortunately didn't have my camera with me, otherwise I would have added it myself.
Thank you for your understanding on this.

Hiram Bessey
Thank you so much for linking up Hiram and his father. I am trying to work on my Bessey line now in locating their graves and never knew there were so many in Canada. I grew up a few miles from where our immediate family Besseys came to my hometown of Marcellus and Fabius in Central New York where many stayed but others spread out. I discovered very recently my ancestor grandfather and some of his brothers and nephews surprisingly were Loyalists and some served with Butler's Rangers during the Revolutionary War. Many were married to wives whose fathers and brothers were ardent Patriots. Must have been some spirited family reunions in later years!!!!

John Joseph Mickus and Christina Klump Gravestone
Thank you so much for adding this gravestone to
"Find A Grave". I live in Portland, Oregon and
I visited Kitchener three years ago researching my
Grandparents who lived in Doon and are buried in
the Doon Presbyterian Cemetery. I believe that
Christina Klump is related to Marie Wagenplast,
possibly step-sisters. You have provided our family
with information which will help us connect this
part of our family.

Thank you again,

Pat Rigby

Kramp family
Just wanted to thank you for linking up my Kramp family members to your site so quickly. I appreciate all your hard work and dedication. My grandmother, Anna Kramp, came to New York in 1898 and married and had a large family of ten. So, the bloodline continues down here with all her numerous descendants in all walks of life.I appreciate your kindness.
