|Bio and Links|
I live in Brandon Manitoba and originally, I started out searching for my ancestors. Then recently, I decided to take photos of all the headstones on our local cemetery - which meant adding all the "residents" in also - this has turned into a full blown obsession and every weekend finds me stomping around the cemetery taking photos of headstones - a wonderful hobby.|
My family tree is extensive, but my main lines are Montgomery, Barton, Rixon, and Nicholson.

|Lorna McMahon||RE: Florence McGavin - Brandon Manitoba|
Thank you sew very much for sending me the transcription for Florence's grave stone. I have added this to her memorial. Have a great day!
|Tracy Anne||Ernest Christie memorial Brandon|
Thanks for the transfer!
He was the person who started Christie's School Supplies way back when in Brandon. I am only a shirttail relative of his but will look after his memorial until someone closer comes along.
|Tracy Anne||RE: Charles Whitehead - Brandon Manitoba|
Thanks for the info on the Whitehead family in Brandon cemetery. A couple of the dates differed just a bit from my research but I have changed the records to match the headstone inscriptions you provided as this is probably just as accurate as anything else.

|G Shewan||Oliver M. Shewan|
Janet, Thank you, too, for the photo of the grave of Oliver Shewan! I see that you have created pages for his parents, Alexander and Catherine Shewan. Would you be able to take photos of their graves as well? I can submit a formal request through the Photo Requests link if you like.
Shewan is a surname that originates in Scotland. It is not a common name, even in Scotland, so I suspect that we Shewans are all related. Shewans can be found in the five great English-speaking countries: UK, US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Thank you for the photos you have taken so far. Your work has help to shed light on Shewans that I was not aware of until you posted the information.

Thank you again Janet!

Thank you so much for posting this info!
David Tourville is the brother of Napoleon. Marie-Louise was married to Napoleon.
I found out that David died in Manitoba years ago but never found out about Napoleon and Marie-Louise.
