Bio and Links
Bio Photo A poem I came across, perfect for those of us who find cemeteries peaceful;

"Your tombstone stands among the rest; neglected and alone. The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone. It reaches out to all who 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 entirely not our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled so many 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.

Hi Marilyn, I have added some photos to the Delanah Campbell (which I took just for interest and then found that she had a page :)

I was just wondering if you know very much about Jane Olmsted (another name on the gravestone)? There is a Jane Olmstead who donated some candelabras to nearby St. Margaret's church in mid 1800s , and I wonder if it the same Jane. The gravestone is very close to that of the Daykins (I believe Wm. was a priest and had his funeral at St. Margaret's).

Regards,
Carolyn M.

Bakers in Southampton Cemetery
I found the headstone for Percy W Baker. It appears he was married to Ada A (Baker). They had 3 children listed on the headstone: Ada C, an infant daughter and an infant son. Also on the headstone was Nancy Collins. This cannot be Percy's wife since she died at 10 - 11 years of age. Perhaps her mother was a Baker who married a Collins? This would mean you would have to change her Family Name to Collins. There is a Margaret Jane Baker Graham buried here as well, probably another daughter of Percy & Ada.
