I want to Thank You so much for the photo of Alice Hubbard. She is the great grandmother of my sister-in-law who is quite excited that I have found a lot about her family tree. Thank You also for setting up Alice's memorial page on findagrave.com. I and my sister-in-law appreciate all the information on the memorial page. It's exciting to get more than just dates and places.

I don't understand, you mean Admin deleted your previous duplicate so you duplicated again?

By the way, Helen Alma Ridley Townsend married Stuart John Terhune in Nelson BC on 02 Dec 1935 (1935-09-432136, B13771, not online as yet). They must have moved out of province, because neither is listed in BC Archives as dying here, at least not prior to 1992.

Re your S.A.C. to remove Vercoe from her name:
Please check the marriage certificate referenced in my earlier message (and below). It appears she may have been baptised with her mother's maiden name as one of her middle names. Can you think of a reason why she would sign line 28 as "Edith Gertrude Vercoe Townsend" if it wasn't her name?
|Ima BC Graver||Edith Gray-Nelson BC|
Here's the link to the marriage certificate, which she signed as Edith Gertrude Vercoe Townsend:
If you're not comfortable with a link, go to the RBCM site, advanced search, and put in the registration number 1925-09-312132. I can't see where Ridley would be substituted for Vercoe, but they're only up to 1903 for online birth registrations. 1904 should be out shortly, and 1905 sometime next year.
Her older sister Dorothy Francis Townsend is registered, so probably they registered the birth.

|Ima BC Graver||John Merry|
Hi Charlotte, I don't show anyone named Merry buried in Nelson Memorial Park (latest cemetery register dated 30 May 2012). There was an M J Merry who died in Rossland in 1897, but is not listed in either of the two Rossland cemeteries. At the time the DCs didn't require place of burial.
I know the records aren't complete for either the Calvary Catholic cemetery or the Columbia cemetery, and earlier burials were moved to Columbia (there were two strays moved as late as 1966, found when someone was excavating for a garage). The Rossland Heritage Commission has been researching extensively, including checking the old newspapers. Unfortunately, although BMD registrations were required starting in 1872, they were very hit-and-miss.
The Royal BC Museum online marriage certificate you cited shows John Merry as age 32 in late 1897, making him born about 1865. They were married in the Catholic church, so it's possible he's one of the unknown burials in Calvary Catholic cemetery.
I was just in Rossland on Tuesday, and don't know when I can get back there to try to check newspapers. And Nelson's microfilm reader is broken until further notice. I will keep him in mind though, and will also check my RHC friend's list of mystery/unreadable/incomplete names for Columbia.

I have passed your querie about John Merry on to a lady who lives out that way to see of she has any ideas.

Thank you for the corrected information on Edith Gray. Her son Archie Ridley Gray provided the death certificate information, but it differs from the marriage certificate, which I just found listed as Townsend (I, of course, had looked for Edith Ridley).
I know DC info has to be taken cautiously; my own father misspelled my grandmother's maiden name on my mother's DC, and since it's the initial letter it's a major difference!
