RE: contacting beth
Here's the easiest way to send a private message to anyone (including me) through Find-a-Grave:

Go to one of the memorials managed by the person you want to contact -- in this instance, I would suggest Memorial #52246954 for Hiram Farrell (use the just memorial number on the main Search page to get to the memorial with ease).

Then click on the white 'edit' tab in the top right corner of the memorial, and choose the option to "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" (also known as a "SAC").

This will open an email form which will be directed privately to the person you wish to contact, who, in this case, is me. :D

Looking forward to hearing from you again . . .

re Hiram Farrell in Dalston Union Cem, Simcoe Cty, Ontario
Hi, Don =]) Thanks for your note; sorry for the delay in responding.

You and I have been in contact before, via Ancestry, as well as direct email thereafter. I'm the same person who had been researching the Farrell->Norman family tree of Vespra and Oro Townships in Simcoe County. Hiram Farrell is my friend's 3ggGF as well.

I've been trying to remember the series of sources from which I decided (for Brad's purposes at least) that Hiram was likely/possibly the son of Samuel Farrell. I think the main reason was a tip from a Public Family Tree on Ancestry, coupled with the facr that there are _so many_ Farrell's buried in South Mountain Cemetery. And the ages/dates seemed logical. Sometimes one just takes a leap of faith . . .

The only birthplace reference I've got in my notes for Hiram, is Upper Canada in 1821. On the 1851 census he was in Mountain Township Dundas County, and in 1861 there was a Hiram Farrell in Portland Township Frontenac County, not too much farther west and plausible.

However, I see from my database that I found Bertha Farrell (Brad's 2ggGM) born in 1849 at Malton Village, Toronto Township, Peel County, (where Toronto Pearson International Airport is today). Obviously her parents Hiram and Nancy (Bowen) Farrell were there as well. Malton is almost directly south of Vespra-Oro Township Simcoe County, where Hiram appears in the 1872 Gazetteer of Simcoe County. So likely the Hiram in Frontenac Cty in 1861 is wrong for this line.

Having attended a couple of UELAC meetings here since I moved to Hamilton (UE status is not a big interest at all up in Simcoe County), I now realize how meticulous one has to be when trying to qualify for the UE designation. Wow, this 'rubber wall' of Hiram/Samuel must be tremendously frustrating for you. :) I wish I had better answers . . .

I _do_ hope that if/when you come East this summer to visit Hiram and Nancy in Dalston Cemetery, that you'll be interested to meet up with Brad and his family (his Mum's in Barrie too). After all, even if Samuel is not Hiram's parent, you and Brad and his Mum _are_ obviously cousins through Hiram and Nancy, and it would be wonderful if my researching Brad's tree could have such great results as to bring such distant (in terms of homeplace) relatives together! When it gets closer to the time of your trip, email me (you have my addy) and I'll put you directly in touch with Brad in Barrie. =])

Best wishes for 2011,
