Several members of Lucy Charlotte Matilda (Wickson) Martin's family also traveled in separate cabins on this voyage. Her parents Henry George Wickson and Lucy Elizabeth (Cook) Wickson, together with a number of Lucy Charlotte's siblings, including John Edward, Emily Eleanor, Kathleen Mary, Ada Florence, Olive Marjorie, Margaret Irene and James Alfred all made the same voyage on the Empress of Ireland. Two of Lucy Charlotte's older siblings, Henry George Wickson and William Frederick Wickson had already emigrated to Ontario, Canada in 1910. It is my assumption that this entire party traveled on the Grand Trunk Railway from Québec to their destination in Belleville, Ontario, Canada where relatives of Lucy Elizabeth (Cook) Wickson were already living, as related to me in an interview in 1985 by Kathleen Mary (Wickson) Clark. It is also possible that William Frederick Wickson had established a small farm in Sydney Township, just west of Belleville, and that this was the destination mentioned in the passenger manifest from the Empress of Ireland.

Ernest William Charles Martin and his wife Lucy Charlotte Matilda (Wickson) traveled to Canada in 1911 along with their oldest child, Leslie William, as part of a larger migration of the Wickson Family from Alvington, Gloucestershire to Belleville, Ontario, Canada. Ernest and Lucy's remaining children, Vivian Kenneth, Lillian Winifred and Carol Audrey were all born in Canada between 1912 and 1927. [ I could probably supply images of the Ontario birth registrations to verify the location of the births in Canada. ]

RE: Hastings Cemetery in Pickering, Ontario
Jerald Sherwood #107017598 is the creator of the memorial you mentioned, not myself.
I have been to that location but don't recall the marker. I'm sorry I can't help you. The Pickering Public Library may be able to assist you in finding a listing of the interments there. They were greatly helpful to me.

RE: Fred and Ella Wallbridge
Also forgot to ask you if nothing was recorded on the stone for Fred Wallbridge's death info.

RE: Fred and Ella Wallbridge
That's an easy question! John and Isabel L.
were older brother and sister of Ella Wallbridge, hence the only three children of John Lewis and his second wife. (see bio for John Lewis)
I see you have photographed two sides of the tall stone. Were the other two sides blank or is that information that is yet to come?
I really appreciate your excellent work in photographing the hard-to-read stone - but it all came out very well.

RE: Lewis Burials in Belleville Cemetery
Thank you for your message and observations on the Lewis stone.
Did you take pics of all sides?
I didn't do memorials for them because I wasn't sure what was on the stone.
Would you be willing to tell me the information and I will create memorials accordingly. Maybe for the
children who died young, you could enter their pics with both parents' memorials.
Keep in touch.

THANK YOU for adding the stone pics to my memorials. I cannot decipher the date in March for Mary Eliza. Possibilities are 13, 17, 19.
Are you able to tell?

Howard Charles Greenwald
I am searching for Howard Charles Greenwald in the Memorial Park Cemetery at Lewiston, New York. I noted on the Find-A-Grave website that you had taken some photographs of markers in that cemetery. I was wondering if you could tell me how extensive that particular cemetery is and whether or not you might have noticed a "Greenwald memorial" as you did your research in the cemetery itself. I can be reached external to this site at the following email address. Thanks. [Wayne]

Hello Wayne,Hope you are doing well. Thank You for your note. I really do not go to Memorial Park Cemetery to offend but I'll go there and see if I can locate Charles Greenwald memorial. The last name rings a bell when I was a young lad around 1945 my parents use to take a ride what was then country to a little Hamburg Stand called Greewald's. The food was Great! and very friendly.

I just thought to past this story on to you.

The Best
