Makepeace Markers in Mt Vernon Cemetery
Hi Bill,

Thank you so much for the pictures of Edward and Marjorie Makepeace's marker in Mount Vernon Cemetery. It is very generous of you to do this for the Find-a-Grave community. And the pictures are so large and clear, too! Thanks again.

Kind regards,

RE: Transfer?
We certainly are, Bill! I, through Lieut. George, am a direct descendant. In fact, I've been asked to provide my grandmother with some information on Samuel for use at church this Sunday.

Hi Bill!

Thank you for creating pages for my 3rd-great-grandparents! I was hoping you wouldn't mind transferring these pages to me. If you would, they are:

George Edson:

Margaret Bailey Edson:

And their daughter Flora:

Thank you!

Some times the stones are hard to read, but I have found this death record it is shows she died the 12 of December not the 17th. Thought you may want to update this record.

Talbot headstones
Thank you for taking the time to find and photograph their headstones. I didn't expect to find the sons too which was a pleasant surprise. I created a memorial for James G at and found one for Robert D at which I've requested the owner to move into Saint James Cemetery as it's burial unknown for now... If you could attach the picture of the family stone to their memorials that would be great or if you'd rather I could do it for you...

Hi Bill,

Thank you for taking the gravestone photos of John Farrar & Rebecca Coburn in Mount Vernon Cemetery.

That removes any lingering doubts about them being buried there.

I haven't had a chance to get back to Mount Vernon Cemetery since 1990.
