Bio Photo Portland, Rideau Lakes Twp., Leeds County, Ontario, Canada


I've been working on my wife's and my ancestry for a number of years now. The majority of my memorials are in our backgrounds, however if related or not, I feel the more research done, and information provided to each memorial, as well as linking family members, the greater benefit it is to the next person researching.
Please feel free to use any of my photos, I am not looking for recognition. They have been taken to assist others.

DEAR ANCESTOR,
Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone.
The names and the dates are chiselled out
on polished marble stone.
It reaches out to all that care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse,
Not entirely on our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you.

Hello Ronald,
Hope all is well
Does My great Aunt Rae have a tombstone, if so when the weather is better would you take a photo and upload for me. I want to have on her memorial and also update her birth and death dates.
Thanks very much.

I had wondered if you would like him transferred to you! Feel free to remove the posting by Kenora Great War Project if you want.

Eliza M. Short's parents
They are listed on the Beechwood register Thomas Short and Eliza Derrick. Let me know if you have need of any other info and I will see if I can find it.

Hi, the stone says that Charles A Morris is buried with his wife Eliza M. Short (1872-1951). Nothing about Sarah Morris!
Cheers,
Edie

Charles' wife
Hi Ronald--I actually gave you the wrong surname for the wife he is buried with so let me get back to you on that.
