A poem I came across, perfect for us, cemetery walkers;|
"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.

|Mary Trace||Neil McLean tombstone, Acton Pioneer Cemetery|
I was wondering if you were the person who linked this tombstone to his daughter and my great grandmother, Catherne McLean, who lived in Erin Twp and was the wife of Peter McArthur. For nearly 40 years I have been trying to find out what happened to Neil McLean. I am not sure that this is him, although his wife was a widow in 1871. Can you offer any assistance as to who linked them and why? I also have two Find A Grave cemetery in British Columbia. It is a wonderful thing to do and I have enjoyed it immensely. Thanks for all your hard work. I know what is involved. Many thanks for any help.
Regards, Mary Kearns Trace
I love your anonymous poem quoted above. Lovely.

I came across a death notice for Dr Robert Carroll and have added it to his memorial #105786370. I hope you don't mind. If you don't like it please feel free to delete it.

You are welcome. This monument was in the furthest part of the cemetery, in the last row, lol. By all means add the other inscription and just send me a note and I'll add the photo. Had it not been winter I would have missed it because a shrub is planted there. In the summer it would never be seen.
|Cathy Beaudoin||re Caldwell monument in Fairview Cemetery|
There is another inscription on the left end panel of this monument. It is for Mary Caldwell Agnew, born July 27 1899, died Mar 19 1998.

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.

While doing your edits, I found a couple newspaper obits to add, too. Archie & Ethel. Ethel had an infant that died when she did...IDK name or sex.
