I'm fairly new to find a grave but I am also a descendant of the Lyda's. My grandfather was Perry Lee Lyda and the last person on my tree is Johann Andreas Lyda. If you are still on here I would love to compare notes. I have absolutely no pictures of any of my descendants except for my grandfather. Thanks

RE: Adam Lyday
I have done so many, I can't tell you for sure, When I was back home, I did go and walk the cemetery. One of his daughters married a distant cousin (Drake). Sorry I can't be certain. Since I noticed you have some of his family, I will transfer Adam to you. Have a blessed day.

You're very welcome! As soon as I learn how to use my new photo editing program better, I will add an arrow to show the Green's crypt. Jim

Jane Matilda Orr Middleton
We are most happy to transfer Jane's record to you. There's nobody like a relative to treasure these memorials.

Thanks for sending the link concerning the Bible; however, I am not a family member.

Maria Arseny
Hi Mk,
I'm having trouble putting my edit through the normal way, so I thought I'd give this a go.
For Maria Arseny-
Vital Stats. Prov. of Mb. Death Reg # 1927-045093 indicates death date as Sept. 1, 1927 in the R.M. Franklin, Manitoba, age 49 years.
Maria was born in 1878 in Synkiv, Galicia (now Ukraine), died Sept. 1, 1927, daughter of Simeon Pidhirny and Dokia Smook.
Maria married Jacob Arseny in 1897.
This from the book Pioneer Settlers of Mb. 1891-1900.
Also from the book-
Jacob Arseny born 1872 in Synkiv, Distr. Zalishchyky, Galicia, Austria (Western Ukraine) died in Tolstoi, 29 December 1925. Arrived in Canada single on S.S. Armenia, landing at Quebec 24 June 1897.
Regards, Olga

RE: Overstoneville Cemetery
Hi Mk,
1. The Overstoneville Ukrainian Independent Cemetery and the Overstoneville Independent Cemetery are one and the same. The "Ukrainian" is dropped. The photo as posted.

Township NW 27-01-05 E
Franklin R.M.
Eastman Region
GPS 49.073114-96.842767
(About one and half miles West of Tolstoi, Mb. Church founded in 1908.

2. The Friedensthal Lutheran Cemetery
Photo as posted.

Township SW 13-01-03 E
Franklin R.M.
Eastman Region GPS 49-030391- 97.075701

3. Now to what you refer to-
The Overstoneville Friedensthal Lutheran Cemetery or the Overstoneville Independent Cemetery are not listed correctly on Find a Grave. Many months ago I notified them, but still they are listed as such and still duplicated. I believe they were originally posted by another member.
In each of these cases, the one "Friedensthal" is not correct and in the other "Independent" is not correct. It simply is called either the "Overstoneville Lutheran Cemetery" or the "Overstone Lutheran Cemetery".
The once hamlet of Overstoneville became non- existant and the area just became known as "Overstone".

Township SW 09-01-05E
Franklin R.M.
Eastman Region
GPS. 49.015483-96.865029
First burial 1918. About 6.5 K.M. South of Tolstoi, Mb. on Hwy. 59 and 4 k.m. West.
This is the one and the same cemetery duplicated on F.A.G. with about 66 burials posted.
I believe this are the ones you refer to.

If you have the opportunity it may help perhaps to notify F.A.G. as well. I don't understand why they wouldn't have corrected it, as I even have to think about it twice when I go to post a memorial.
Sorry this is so long, but I hope it clarifies it.

Regards, Olga
