Cemetery find
I'm having trouble locating a cemetery, St James Anglican in Port Elmsley. Doesn't seem to be on the site yet but thought I'd check with you being in the area and might have a better idea.

William Beverdige
Hi - I noticed that William's first wife Catherine Elliott is not buried near him or at least she is not listed on his page. Catherine Elliott was born 11 April 1834 in North Elmsley, Lanark to John Elliott and Rebecca Taylor. She and William were married 1 March 1855 in Perth. They had 5 children, Rebecca 1856, Janet Isabella or "Jennie" 1857, Margret Elizabeth 1858, Mary Ann or "Minnie" 1862 and James Edward 1863. Catherine is in the 1861 census with William and all of her children. In the 1871 census, the new wife is Ann Jane Turney and all of the same older children plus a brand new 3 month old baby named William Beveridge, Jr. Catherine passed away in 1870.

I just thought you would like this information. :-)

Bustard and Leslie
Just wanted to let you know that Margaret Leslie (who married Adam Bustard, 128581565) and Matilda Leslie (who married Arthur Bustard, 146173879) are sisters to my great grandfather David Leslie (145059266). I have the Leslie Family Bible in my care. In the Bible there is a picture of the "Bustard Sisters".

Robert Henry Love, No. 57082002
Hello Gary,
Robert Henry Love is my 5x Great Grandfather. Was wondering about your source info for Robert's parents being Robert Love & Elizabeth Lockhart and his birth date and place being as you listed. I have his parents, birth, and birth place listed as James Love & Marion Killan (or Cullen), 21 Sep 1781 Barony, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland.

Thank You,
Ashley Bett

Hi, Thanks for the info on Albert Cecil Rhodes and his wife Annie C. Riddell. They are my grandparents I never knew. Also, they had 15 children, I have all of their names if you would like to list them. I never knew any of them, I was born out of wedlock, my Dad, their son, was William Rhodes. I did not meet him until I was 19 or so. I was his only child. My Dad gave me some family info, but I didn't get enough info before he passed away. I've been able to trace my maternal Acadian ancestors very far back, but this was my first info I have found on my Dad's side.
Thank you.

I have an old (original) photo of 2 little girls sitting on either side of the grave of Hugh & Elizbeth Weir. Would you know who the little girls are?

(I think the photos were acquired in an estate sale..)

FYI the headstones in France for Gordan and Carmen Molyneaux are now on their memorial pages in case you are interested. You had helped me find obits for that family, so thought that you might be interested. Thanks!

Andrew Paul's Memorial Photo
Hi, Gary,
I just realized I need to ask you for permission to use your photo for my on-line and personal family tree. Could you email me if it is all right to do so. I have been taking some grave memorial pictures also as a volunteer and I finally added a blanket permission on my bio page - made life easier.

I would love to visit Lanark, Ontario, but I live in Southern California so it's not just a hop, skip and a jump away. If I do maybe we can meet - you probably are a great source of genealogical information on the area. I am a McLean by birth and I have tracked my 2nd Great-grandfather James McLean to have been born in Dalhousie in 1830 and living in Lanark in 1850.

Hope to hear back from you. My regular email is LMCGUE@YAHOO.COM.
