In addition to adding my family, I enter other graves. I am always happy to transfer a grave to anyone doing research, if it's not in my family. You know more about the individual then I do. I just ask that if someone who is even closer to that individual reaches out to you, pay it forward and transfer the memorial to them! I am also happy to update the grave as requested.

Please credit original source if you use any of my photos. You may use my photos on Ancestry but please note its from FAG and that I took it. I do my very best to credit others. I owe many finds in my research to the long hours of many other volunteers. For all of them I am truly grateful. My desire is that my work may be found to be helpful and meaningful to others.

Use the {Edit} tab on the Memorial page top right, then the {Suggest a correction or provide additional information} link.

Husband of Elizabeth Finton
I can't do the edit because I can only put a reference number in and I do not have one. However, if you read the article on Elizabeth's site, it clearly states that her husband was Joseph B Furrow not Joseph William Furrow who is my ancestor. I do not think this could have been her 1st husband as Joseph William Furrow was married to Gene Babcock during child bearing years.

I am wondering why Elizabeth is linked to Joseph William Furrow when it states that her husband is Joseph B Furrow. Could she be linked in error to Joseph William Furrow?

By the way, where are your Clarks from in Scotland?

RE: James Clark
Hi Colin,
I don't know if I missed it - I did take a photograph of the next side of the stone and it mentions a James Anderson and his wife, maiden name Sproule. But I took over a hundred photos today and I'm still going through them. I took photos of stones with all the same surnames of the photo requests, so basically any Anderson I could find today, I took a photo of the stone. So let me go through the rest and see if she pops up. :)

Thank you for photos
Thank you for the photos of the gravesite of Charles and Rachel Smith Vickery in the Hazelmere cemetery. I suspected there was not a marker for either person, now I know for sure. My father remembered these two from his boyhood.
