We are travelling at the moment but will be home soon. I look forward to what you have on the family and sharing what I have.

RE: RE:
No. I had never seen that photo, or any other photo, of Phoebe before.
There is a nice picture of Phoebe's father on his memorial - which is now linked to Phoebe's. The picture also shows one of Phoebe's brother's, Ernest Albert Brigden and three of her half-siblings by Charles Stephen Brigden & his second wife, Catherine Warbrick.
I have done a quick calculation and it looks like you and my wife are second cousins, twice removed.
I had assumed that Phoebe had a tough life just from the information that was on the censuses. The inconsistent spelling of her name there and on her gravestone indicates a fairly low level of literacy.
I have accumulated a fair amount of information on the families of Charles Stephen Brigden. We should talk and exchange what we have.
I live in Petawawa, ON. What is your location?

"Pheby" Rose
Hi:

I've sent you a number of suggested corrections as I believe that "Pheby" is really Phoebe Frances Brigden, the daughter of Charles Stephen Brigden. and his first wife, Elizabeth Cannon. Charles Stephen Brigden is the g-grandfather of my wife by his second wife, Catherine Warbrick. Charles and Catherine and, probably, Elizabeth are buried in Arnprior.

Phoebe was first married to an Edmund Brasher or Brazier and then to John Rose. She had two children with her first husband and at least 10 with John Rose.

A copy of Phoebe's birth information follows:

"Certified Copy of an Entry of Birth, Registration District: Lewisham; 1856 Birth in the Sub-district of Plumstead & Charlton in the County of Kent. Born - Twentieth January, 1856, 6 East Street Plumstead; Name - Phoebe Frances; Sex -Girl; Father - Charles Brigden; Mother - Elizabeth Brigden formerly Cannon; Occupation of father - Gunner, RHA; Signature, descriprion and residence of informant - Elizabeth Brigden, Mother, 6 East Street, Plumstead; When registered - Twenty eighth February, 1856; Signature of registrar - Not clear, possibly Elizabeth Lavery Burnett. Copy given 5th day of November, 2002. - "

I thought I should send you this to lend more credibility to my suggested editorial changes on Findagrave. Phoebe's name was spelled Pheby on some of the censuses I have seen.

I have more information if you are interested.

RE: Photos of John And Rebecca Else graves
Hi - You're very welcome. I remember going to that cemetery earlier in the year, or last fall - looking for the ELSE stone, and didn't find it. But there was an online listing that "insisted" it was there, so I went back. It's one of the biggest markers in the cemetery - and I missed it! (I must have got off track and missed an entire row.)

Glad to help....
