When I searched for Melvin "Montey", Find A Grave could not find him. Because he did not adopt the Army spelling of his name, I believe it should not be used for his memorial. As his name appears, I would expect Monty to be his nickname.
Thank you for creating the memorial!

But it appears when he moved to Michigan he did adopt that spelling; his second wife's memorial also has the last name spelled Montey - see #127335181. We have removed the 'nickname' spelling of his name.

#129811887 Seymour Douglas Walsh
You might like to revisit this posting. Seymour is buried in the Lr. Horton Cemetery in Grand Pre. I posted a photo of the headstone for he & his wife Clara Belle King. Clara Belle was born April 18, 1891 in Avonport and passed June 18, 1934 in Avonport from a Postpartum Hemorrhage. Please feel free to use this information and photo to make a correction.

Taylor-Redden Shoes
Robert Taylor was my great great grandfather. He had a shoe factory st Duke and Brunswick St. I think he also had a company called Taylor-Redden shoes on Barrington and Sackville streets. I was wondering if these buildings, or perhaps the facades, still remain and if there is some kind of plaque.

Waterville Cemetery
Hello Barbara,
A little more of Hants Co. geography. Waterville was the area now known as Upper & Lower Vaughan.
There is no Waterville Cemetery as such. The people you have in Waterville Cemetery are actually in Lakeview Baptist Cemetery. In the former area of Waterville there are 3 Cemeteries. Also I would take the Wile memorials if you want to transfer them
Regards, Barrie

The dates on stones are sometimes not correct. I use the death records as recorded at the courthouse of which could be wrong instead. Thanks for drawing my attention to this. My grandmothers death record is different from her stone and her birth date is also wrong. BUT~~On her death certificate it says she was buried in the town she died in which is wrong. The Cemetery name is the same but in a different town~~~~~~~~~

Elizabeth McLean (Willis) Davis
Elizabeth is my ggrandmother and according to my records she was 6 jan 1840 pos in Maitland as my grandmother Martha Louis Davis said they lived there and when the children were about grown they moved to Windsor.
She had 2 sisters who married American fellows they were Charlotte Sarah Davis b Apr 1866 in Windsor and married Otis Tolman 1897 in Sharon, Norfolk, Massachusetts and the other sister is Edith Agnes b 25 May 1879 either in Maitland or Windsor she married George MacKinnon 1941 Pittsfield, Berkshire, Massachusetts
My grandmother we called Meme lived with my grandfather Frederick Lawrence Moss b in East Ham Essex, England and he and other seamen jumped ship in NS and Gramps and Joe Jarrett found their way to the Redden house. Meme was there visiting her sister who had married a Redden that would have been Harriet b 1875. They met and then after a bit they eloped to Sharon, Massachusetts where they married and then Grampa Moss worked for car railway that went from Canton, to Boston and they lived in Canton and raised the family there.
After Grampa Moss died she gave up the home and went to live with one child for a year then moved on to another doing that with the 5 living kids.
So she was with us when her 2 sisters visited us and boy I did a lot of questioning the 3 of them.

I do have the Willis family back to England and when John Willis came over from England he use the name Wills and the first 3 children had the Wills surname then it went to Willis. in the families a lot of this family would got Willis, Wills back to Willis.

I also have Davis family back to possibly 1745 but definitely back to 1795 in Nova Scotia.
I have found some Redden families and am writing to them to see if any of their parents have any information on the William Davis and Sarah Stewart.
You can email me at

Sorry I didn't know he went to the siblings list also. Thanks for explaining. Aubrey (my grandfather)
I fixed my own mistake. You have a lot of the Wile family I believe. Are we related some how? It doesn't help so many place names changed over the years.

RE: Edward & Hattie Allen
Thank you so much Barbara.
The only family I am interested in is anyone directly related - as in Allens or her birth family. Are you a Sweet relative?
My email address is: if you would like to chat privately.

Again - much appreciation for creating these memorials and the transfer.

Re Memorial # 130514609
Hi Barbara

I was wondering if you would consider transferring this memorial of my grandmother's to me? Also my grandfather's is 130514509. I have photos and linkages so it might be easier for me to maintain them if you would agree.

Thank you!

RE: Robert Chapman Turner
Hi Barbara,

I am related to many families in Dorchester, New Brunswick and I have taken many photographs (but heretofore I have not entered them on "Find A Grave") of the stones in two of Dorchester's cemeteries: The Pioneer and the Rural, so if you would like to transfer some or all of your memorials in those cemeteries to me, I would not object . . . Turner, Dobson, Keillor, Chapman, Brownell, Chandler, Smith, Carter, Bowser, Weldon, Botsford, Sayre, How, Pickles, Doyle, Cochran, Matheson, King, Dooe, McEwen, Steeves . . . . My interest lies in the fact that although I am an "Upper Canadian" my Turner roots lie deep in the Maritimes . . . in particular Westmorland County. My wife's maternal roots are also Maritime but in Carleton County. I was born, grew up, and spent my teaching career in Ottawa but the Turner homestead lies in Dorchester and my father (born on the Turner homestead) brought us to visit my grandparents there in the summers in the 1940's and 1950's; and then I graduated from Mount Allison in 1965. My wife and I have visited our families in the Maritimes almost every summer . . . with our kids in trailers and now ourselves in our motorhome.

Yours truly,

Ed Turner

Sources for Eli Beebe's Parents?
I am doing research on Eli H Beebe (1808-1883) who is the husband of Olive and is buried in Butler Co, Iowa and am wanting to know who his parents are.
I saw on the find a grave site that you created that Isaac and Olive listed as the parents of Eli. This is a pretty widely accepted fact across many websites and many family trees. Despite this though I have been unable to find any sources that show that this is firmly true.
I am trying to find sources that verify this. Do you have the sources stored somewhere. Or do you have the sources on your account? Can I gain access to these records somehow?

My Ancestry username is chrisdevenport007.
