Anna Anderson - Smithville cemetery
I recently photographed all visible, decipherable memorials in the Smithville cemetery, near Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Unfortunately, I did not find a memorial for the above-named, requested by you. Her name does appear in the cemetery transcription done by the Saskatchewan Cameteries Project (Rootsweb), but I believe that this list includes names found in burial records as well as those having actual standing memorials.

regarding you requests
Forest Lawn is a privately owned cemetery and they will not give information to a third party, you must be a relative. They feel that they could be sued for release of private information. I have the email to prove this!!!!!
If you contact their office (through email) and request their location I would take a photo for you. They would be willing to do a lookup if the request came from a family member. If you cannot figure out your connection, say you are a cousin.
Once you have the location just enter it into the memorial page and it will show on the photo request.
Thank you,

Desmond Anderson Photo
Ok, I got it figured out now.... I have put the photo of Benjamin Anderson's grave on Desmond's memorial as well. Didn't realize this was in Canada so didn't come up when I searched in US.

Anderson Photos
I'm a little confused... I don't have any edits for the Andersons and I don't believe I maintain any of their memorials.... do you have me confused with another contributor?

RE: Annie Shillington in Woodlawn Saskatoon
Thanks for your reply. I am going to decline the edit as there seem to be too much uncertainty. The Woodlawn database indicates she was 78 years old when she died, which would be a birth year of 1888. Its possible that these are all wrong, but I think more proof is needed for me to overturn a headstone date. Of course, if you get new evidence, please resubmit the edit.

You submitted an edit to show Annie's birth year as 1877. However, her headstone says 1888. Any idea why the different years?

I made the edit you requested. Are you related to Mary? She was my great-aunt.

Would love to meet others who are related to her

Kristjanson Photo Requests
Regarding your Kristjanson Photo Requests in Fort Saskatchewan Cemetery.

If you could contact the City Public Works Dept. and get the info regarding grave location in the cemetery I would gladly help you out with the pictures.

My previous experience in Fort Sask found that getting this info is a bit of a chore and I just don't have the time to do it.

Noticed you had pics for a few of the children I've added. Did you want to add them? or I get pics on my next trip to Victoria?

RE: Robert Thorburn at Greenwood
Thank you Ruth!

Regarding the edit you sent for Robert - I'm not sure what you intended. You removed Vancouver as his place of birth but the rest is the same as what I had. His death certificate says Vancouver was place of birth - do you have different information?

Robert Thorburn at Greenwood
Thanks so much for filling this request! I really appreciate it! It was especially helpful in that it showed me his wife is there with him. So I have created a memorial for her at

Find A Grave Memorial #151693370

I'll submit a request and can you please load your photo there too?

Also, I would to attach your photo (with appropriate credit given) to my tree on Ancestry. May I please have your permission to do so?

Thanks again for everything!

Ernest W. Griffiths
I am wondering about Ernest Griffiths memorial and head stone picture. Where did you get his birth and death information and who took the headstone picture?

Happy to make the changes for you
Shirley was slightly older than my mom, who was also from Pelly born in 1938, I am sure they would have known each other.

George Wride
Dear Ruth
I was able to take a picture of Ella today but did not see a headstone for George. I will check soon with the Park Service agents to see if there is one. I took this picture with flowers where his headstone should be.
take care

Hi Ruth, I took the photo today but only just noticed that I forgot to clear the snow away from the inscription. I will go back and take another photo as soon as I can.

I searched Carman Cemetery and had no luck finding the grave stone. I have a plot map, so perhaps there is no stone. If you find out other wise I will go back and look again
