Bio and Links
Bio Photo My Find-a-Grave activity is only moderately curtailed by that essential 'nuisance' of "having to earn a living". I generally respond to queries, SACs and requests as soon as I can get a round tuit. Sincere apologies for all delays, and thank you for your patience. =]) Beth

A proud Canadian, I now live in the beautiful Province of British Columbia :D Locations of interest near my former home in Ontario include all of Simcoe County (which is about an hour north of Toronto), plus Ancaster (west Hamilton) and the (former) County of Wentworth, which are due west of Toronto.

Copyright courtesy requested! If you wish to use a photo that I have uploaded to a memorial here on Find-a-Grave, and post it to another website 'as yours', KINDLY ASK ME FIRST. In general, I don't mind if anyone uses my photos for their personal records, and I would hope my name would be included for the source file. But please, if you're going to post them to a FEE-BASED/SUBSCRIPTION website (including Ancestry, which as we all know ultimately profits from _everything_ contributed to their site), it would be nice if credit to the photographer (me) could be given within the posting. I don't know if other sites make this possible, but something such as: "Photograph taken by OhSunnyOne, Ancaster, Ont" would be appreciated.
Thank you for this consideration.

When the time comes that I become part of my own entries and therefore unable to manage the memorials in my stewardship anymore, I would like them all to be transferred over to my cousin and fellow contributor, Dale Alleyne (#48076216)

I am not managing this memorial. Sorry - not sure what action you are requesting me to take.

RE: Madeleine (nee Hudon) Molson
Hi OhSunnyO,

Thanks for the reply to my additions. Off hand, I cannot think of any more. I think my aunt would be very pleased with what we have done. I had many wonderful aunts but Madeleine was probably the sweetest.

As ever,

RE: Adelaide M Garson Rainey, Barrie Union
I haven't lived in Barrie for more than 60 years, but you can access the Barrie Examiner online by visiting the website "Our Ontario" - search for Barrie.

RE: Adelaide M Garson Rainey, Barrie Union
I found her obituary in the Barrie Examiner, 16 March, 1944, p 10 and it clearly states that her maiden name was Carson. No need to transfer it to me. Her husband was first cousin, once removed to my father-in-law! I am happy to have it left as it is.

Madeleine (nee Hudon) Molson
My name is Girard Richard "Gerry" Christmas. My mother was Marcelle Antoinette (nee Hudon) Christmas and her identical twin sister (my aunt) was Madeleine Emilienne (nee Hudon) Molson (12 June 1912 - 19 June 1995) . A number of sites have Madeleine listed as the sister of Reginald Owen Molson and the daughter of his parents. She was not. "The twins" parents were Alice and Leo Hudon, also of Montreal.

Reggie Molson met and fell in love with Madeleine Hudon while the two were working at the Sun Life Assurance Company in Montreal. They would later marry and have one child, Robert. The family traveled extensively in Europe, Australia, and the United States before finally making Vancouver their home.

I would be grateful if you would set the record straight.

Thank you.

RE: Adelaide M Garson Rainey, Barrie Union
Please check her marriage 14 Jun 1893 in Vespra township. Sometimes stone cutters' C's & G's are hard to decipher. I grew up in Barrie & there were lots of Carsons in the area. My sister-in-law's mother's maiden name was Carson and she was related to Andrew Carson, a neighbour.

Ocean View Requests
Ocean View Cemetery is a privately owned cemetery and they will not give information to a third party, you must be a relative.

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. Also, the staff at Ocean View can tell you if there is a headstone so that if there is not you can just cancel your photo request.

Thank you,

Ocean View link to a request:

Clarence and Mary Fenton
Searching for family of Clarence George William Fenton and Mary Constance Long Fenton. Posted on Google by ohSunnyOne in 2010. Clarence's father was my grandfather's brother and I am doing a geneology book.
Clarence was born November 8, 1914 and died September 7, 2010.
Mary was born April 4, 1933 and I believe she is still alive.
Thanks in advance for your assistance!

Hello -

I have just added Victoria's birth register to this page. I hope you will remove the statement that her middle name was " Susan". As you can see in the register it is "ALMIRA". I was unable to find any information to substantiate your claim. If you have something to the contrary please let me know.
Thank you for creating this page about one of my family members.
