Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching family located primarily in Ontario, Quebec and New England. My ancestors include Warners, Parkers, Prices, Wainwrights, Harbers, Leslies, Kathans, Willises, Quinns, Blairs, Campbells, Bowens, Wellses, Lunns, Milners, Leitches, Edwardses, Massons, Davises, Wymans, Robinsons, Stones, Putneys, Frenches, Lovewells, Clevelands, Willards, Austins and Grants.

I am also helping my wife with her family research in Pike County, Kentucky. Her ancestors include Hatfields, Dotsons, Sullivans and McCoys.

I'm happy to transfer any memorial to relatives, even distant relatives, of the person memorialized. That is, of course, unless that person is also a relative of mine, in which case the Find A Grave transfer policy will apply.

RE: Thelma Irene Hatfield
Thank you for offering to help me! Any tips you have are greatly appreciated! I really want to get my family transferred to me as they are being managed by people who are not direct relatives. So, I can't edit them or link them, and the information isn't correct or thorough. So yes, tips are great! Thanks again!

RE: John Harber (memorial # 145838116)
Glad I was able to help you out too! I never saw a headstone for Annie Eliza Blair Thompson when I was there.. but I imagine she's probably buried near the Harber headstone.
What was the mystery if you don't mind me asking?

Hey Paul
I decided to transfer the monuments to you as they are not my family and you are actively doing family research. I don't go on as much as I used to, so sorry for the delay. I didn't get any messages until yours today that there were pending edits. Take it easy & have a great week. Anyone I missed, please let me know & I'll send them to you if they are mine :) Catherine

RE: Arthur Henry Hiscock - Memorial #56678757
Hi Paul,

You are very welcome. It’s normal to assume the person is actually buried where there is a marker with their name on it. Like I said, it was very common for families here to do that.

If you are unsure in the future you can check their name on either CVWM at ...
http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/remembrance/memorials/canadian-virtual-war-memorial
or CWGC ... http://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead.aspx

I do know of one case though where the family did get their son’s body brought back from England during WWI. He is buried in Palmerston Cemetery ... Find A Grave Memorial# 154059778. They paid $500.00 themselves to get it done. The father was also an alderman and had some pull which I’m sure helped.

If he had died in France where he was injured they probably wouldn’t have been able to bring him back regardless of what they were willing to pay as it was the policy of Commonwealth War Graves and the Canadian Dept. of Defence for a soldier to be buried in the land where he fell. It has only been with the more recent deaths of soldiers in Afghanistan that bodies have been returned to Canada for burial.

You don’t need to remove the picture. What you put in the caption is fine. It is nice to know he is remembered on a headstone here. I have added many similar pictures to memorials myself. I also add Cenotaph pictures that a soldier is named on.

Take care,
Margaret

RE: Arthur Henry Hiscock - Memorial #56678757
Hi Paul,

Private Arthur Henry Hiscock’s wouldn’t be buried there as they didn’t bring bodies back to Canada for burial. Soldiers were buried where they fell during the war. He was killed in France so would be buried there somewhere. His family probably had his name put on the headstone for his sister so they would have a place to visit. Many families did that. It can be confusing though as one would assume the person is buried there if their name is on the headstone and quite often duplicate Find a Grave memorials get done because of this.

Anyhow, the Canadian Virtual War Memorial, Commonwealth War Graves Commission, Canada at War, The Canadian Great War Project all have him as being named on the Vimy Memorial which means his burial place is unknown.

His Cause of Death card states as follows:
“Previously reported missing now killed in action”
“He was killed during the attack at Regina Trench, Coucelette, France.”

I also went through his service records and one document said he was listed as missing and then his body found and buried by the 8th Canadian Bn. Probably the maker they would have left to identify him went missing. If that was the case then after the war when they moved the bodies to proper cemeteries he would have got a headstone saying “Unknown Soldier.” When there was no grave marker with his name he would have then been named on the Vimy Memorial so that his name would show as a casualty.

Hope I haven’t confused you too much with my explanation but it is complicated to explain in a way.

Take care,
Margaret
