Bio and Links
Bio Photo My Find-a-Grave activity is only moderately curtailed by that essential 'nuisance' of "having to earn a living". I generally respond to queries, SACs and requests as soon as I can get a round tuit. Sincere apologies for all delays, and thank you for your patience. =]) Beth

A proud Canadian, I now live in the beautiful Province of British Columbia :D Locations of interest near my former home in Ontario include all of Simcoe County (which is about an hour north of Toronto), plus Ancaster (west Hamilton) and the (former) County of Wentworth, which are due west of Toronto.

Copyright courtesy requested! If you wish to use a photo that I have uploaded to a memorial here on Find-a-Grave, and post it to another website 'as yours', KINDLY ASK ME FIRST. In general, I don't mind if anyone uses my photos for their personal records, and I would hope my name would be included for the source file. But please, if you're going to post them to a FEE-BASED/SUBSCRIPTION website (including Ancestry, which as we all know ultimately profits from _everything_ contributed to their site), it would be nice if credit to the photographer (me) could be given within the posting. I don't know if other sites make this possible, but something such as: "Photograph taken by OhSunnyOne, Ancaster, Ont" would be appreciated.
Thank you for this consideration.

When the time comes that I become part of my own entries and therefore unable to manage the memorials in my stewardship anymore, I would like them all to be transferred over to my cousin and fellow contributor, Dale Alleyne (#48076216)

Ocean View Burial Park, owned by Dignity Memorial, is a privately owned cemetery. Dignity Memorial will not give information to a third party, you must be a relative. They feel that they could be sued for release of private information.
If you contact their office (through email) and request their location I would take a photo for you. They would be willing to do a lookup if the request came from a family member. If you cannot figure out your connection, say you are a cousin.

http://www.dignitymemorial.ca/en-ca/about-us/contact-us.page

If you want to contact direct:

korey.yu@dignitymemorial.com

Once you have the location just enter it into the memorial page and it will show on the photo request.
Thank you,
Karen

Just part of the same rural community.
Thanks anyway.

RE: Charlotte Higginson et al
Hello Cuz Beth - let's chat further when you get back to Frazier Valley. I live in Colorado mountains at 8600' elevation, so am savoring remainder of fleeting summer. I've wandered through churchyard at Egham but was unable to locate a memorial for our shared ancestor, Ann Clarke Haynes, and left presuming she either never had a marker or it has not survived. On next trip I'd like to see whether Reading cemetery has a marker for Robert Haynes -- we probably share similar interest for wandering through cemeteries. Best to you and look forward to future chats -

RE: Robert and Ruth Butcher, Hornings Mills
I apologize for not posting that earlier. I didn't read the stone very closely and didn't realize Ruth was on it as well. I'm glad I was able to help.

Charlotte Higginson
Hi - I just added memorials for Charlotte Haynes Higginson's parents, which you might add as links - father Richard Haynes (#182925205) and mother, Jane Alleyne (Payne) Haynes (#182925975), both interred St. John Evangelist, Clifton, nr. Bristol. Let me know whether you received earlier email explaining our relationship - hope all well!

RE: Jonathan Higginson
Hello Beth - this will be great fun since we are, apparently, cousins, although apparently one generation removed.
My 3rd great grandparents, Jonathan and Charlotte (Haynes) Higginson were half-cousins and shared the same grandmother, Ann Thomasin (Clarke) Haynes (1765-1840), so your 4th great grandmother is my 5th great grandmother on two separate family lines. As you're aware, Ann Thomasin Clarke first married Nathaniel Barrow and had my 4th great grandmother, Sarah Ann (Barrow) Higginson (1785-1859), Jonathan Higginson's mother; Ann Thomasin (Clarke) Barrow's second husband was Robert Haynes and their eldest son was Richard Haynes (1792-1859), Charlotte Haynes Higginson's father. It's all fairly complex but I think you can see how we're related - I'm anxious to see which of Robert Haynes' other sons you're related to and, of course, we both go further back to the bloodthirsty pirate Stede Bonnet.
Charlotte, as you know, came out here to Colorado, USA, as a widow and that's where my branch of the family remains, albeit now migrated over to the Western Slope of the state from the Denver area. Let's exchange further data, pretty exciting... Grant Houston, Lake City, Colorado USA
