RE: Elizabeth Stewart Campbell

Hi Thanks for your reply,I understand after so many years that the headstone has gone or is illegible.Would it be possible to contact the authority that looks after the cemetry and ask them for all the burials there,that way you would have a record of all the people buried there snd you'd be able to see which ones still had headstones and which ones didn;t because they never did have one or it was destroyed.Just an idea

Thank you for the photo of the graveyard where my ancestor is buried.
I'm guessing that there isn't a legible headstone for her?

Ruth, I see you left a flower at John Averill's memorial. He is also my 7th great grandfather. I am wondering how we'd be related. Would you be interested in sharing information with me?

You asked me to add a birthdate and birth location for him (b. 1596 at Kent, England).

Do you have any records to prove this? As far as I know, this information, along with his parentage are unknown. I know several trees have included birth dates between 1590-1605, in various locations, with various parents, but I don't believe any records have come to light to prove his birth info.

I won't add any information to the memorials I manage unless I can back the info up with records.

Best regards,

Hopefully this is a duplicate email. I just received a batch of notes from Find A Grave.
You asked for more information regarding Lockport South Cemetery. The records are with St. Denise Church in Lockport.

happy roots digging,
