Bio and Links
Bio Photo Many people have helped me so much, uncovering many of my family mysteries. I pay it forward, by helping as many other people out, where I can. If you choose to use any of my pictures...I only ask that you give credit for them, where they are posted.

I am a canadian who is researching my american born grandfather for the purpose of a book.

He was born Charles James Kreuzburg [various spellings]September 5th 1874. A year later Charles father passed away. His mother remarried Ignautz Kammer, thus my grandfather adopted the last name "Kammer" for the rest of his known life. [as per 1920 passport]

Note: I started doing research on my grandfather as my father knew very little about his father, as my father was only 4 years old when my grandfather left canada to go back to the usa.

During my research I uncovered my grandfather was a bigamist, having married at least five women. My grandfather was known to be of great wealth, thus making it easier to attract women. He was also a travelling Hardwood lumber salesman, having travelled parts of the eastern usa; Canada; and several ports in Central America.

I have finally found my grandfather's death certificate, which indicates he died June 7 1958 in New Orleans, La. He lived at least 15 years longer then the family first thought.

Anyone with information, can contact me. direct bloodlines to my grandfather. Kreuzburg [various spellings], Kammer, Kammeron, Baudendistel, Lavesque, Whitener, Seghorn and many other last names, which would be distant to my grandfather.

My information can be found at under the name "mycanadarocks"

I recently had a DNA match on with someone (who only has 12 people in his tree) who is related to the Rowbotham's in Belleville, Hastings, Ontario. I searched the Belleville Cemetery on Findagrave and found you posted a photo of Alfred Rowbotham. Logic would say that if you have a photo you are related. I am most interested in Mary Francis (nee: Irvine) Rowbotham. I think that is our DNA link. I have Irvine ancestors from Belleville. Any help you are able to give will be appreciated.

Duplicate Mountain View Cemetery Pages
Hello -
I have just discovered that there are two locations for Mountain View Cemetery, Prince Edward County, Ontario on Find a Grave. Since you have several ancestor memorials on one of the pages I thought I would let you know as having two pages for the same cemetery could result in duplicate memorials (This is how I discovered it).

I have written to Find a Grave and sent them details, but it might help the process if you also sent them an email asking for the correction. The email address I used was

It seems the problem was created by the entry of two different cities for the cemetery. One site says Ameliasburgh and the other says Mountain View. I have sent the correct address and location information to Find a Grave along with the GPS coordinates. I will contact the other contributors and inform them as well.

Hope this information will help to prevent some confusion for you with your ancestor memorials.

Good day,
Picture attached here is actually for his parents. Can you remove your photo? Do you have the correct one? Can you obtain it? I have opened a new photo request just in case.
Thanks so very much!

RE: Florence Leveck Thomas 70316593
You're very welcome! Florence actually wasn't too hard to find. I basically did a search using her first name and maiden name to find the death registration. After other searches failed that was the only thing I could think of doing to possibly find a record. I didn't know about the second marriage. When I searched Find a Grave at Nelson Memorial Park using the name of Florence Thomas there she was. The picture taken by Alison was also helpful since it had part of the gravemarker for her daughter below her marker. Anyways glad I was able to help.

Florence Dellecor
Believe she is buried near her mother under the Florence Thomas. There is already a memorial page and photo posted. You can partially see another grave marker below hers that matches her mother's. Find A Grave Memorial# 70316593

Florence Dellecor
Hi James,

I saw a posted message that you are trying to find information on Florence Dellecor. I think I might have found her for you. Found a registration of death under the name Florence Thomas you might want to check out at the link. It says she was buried at Nelson Memorial Park.

I received your message, and an hour or so later I heard from my friend Alison. I haven't found a BC death certificate for Flossie, nor did I find any listing for her in the Nelson Memorial Park cemetery register.

I will keep her in mind, though, as my current project is researching old newspapers on microfilm.

RE: 70316196
Hi James,
I will ask a friend who lives closer to there to keep a look out for Flossie. Strange that she is not with him and is not even on the BC Archives list.
