RE: Watson Cemetery
I'm sorry but I don't know how to add the GPS information. Below is what I found on the Find A Grave Information. I hope this will help.

Can I add the GPS location of a grave? If so where should I add it?
Yes, you can add the GPS location of a grave. On the memorial page, select the 'Add Plot' link where the burial information is listed. On the next page you can add the Cemetery Plot information as well as the GPS coordinates for the grave.

RE: Hannah (Lee) Goldsmith
I have a transcribed copy of Benjamin Mason Goldsmith's work, which simply states, "Hugh Colville, son of the above [Benjamin & Eliza], born at Rosette June 2, 1838 and was married to Mary [sic] Lee of Perott Settlement, by the Revd JJ Ritchie at the residence of the bride's father on Thursday 18th July 1861", then goes on to list their children.

Here's their marriage record: Married 18 Jul 1861, by licence, by Rev. James R. Ritchie, Missionary at Annapolis, Hugh C. Goldsmith, bachelor, AND, Hannah Lee, spinster, both of the Perotte Settlement;
witnesses: Benjamin Goldsmith, Oliver Goldsmith. (Annapolis, St. Luke's Parish Register of Marriages, page 87, no. 560)

I have been a researcher of local families for over 15 years, spent 10 years as a genealogy volunteer at our local museum here in Annapolis Royal.

Hannah (Lee) Goldsmith
I received your suggestion ré Hannah's date of birth as Jan. 10, 1831 in Annapolis Royal, N.S. That date comes from the 1901 census (which lists her as age 69), but she appears as age 42 in 1871, 45 in 1881, and 60 in 1891, so her exact date of birth is unclear. As her parents were living in the Perotte Settlement in the 1838 census, I believe that is likely where she was born. She married there (her husband was from Perotte as well), and lived there with her family until sometime between 1881 & 1891, when the family moved into Annapolis Royal.

John Howard Nelson Brookfield,NS
Thank you for taking the time and expending the effort. J Howard is my wife's great great grandfather. His wife, Mary, still eludes me. She removed to Twin Mtn., N.H. after J Howard's death with 2 or 3 of the youngest children. The youngest, John H., adopted and raised his grandson as his own son. Thanks again, J.E.
