another Cornwell death
I just seen in the Port Huron Times Herald that a Gloria A Cornwell age 74 of Sandusky, Sanilac, Michigan died. She is in the Hacker Funeral Parlors in Sandusky, MI. I remember that you were interested in the Cornwell family.

distant relative?
I was researching my Great grandmother

and found myself on a Cornwell page. It seems the connection is through her mother Anna Jane Nichols Long . I followed the Russel name until I came across Artemisa "Missie" Cornwell Russell. Just thought I'd leave a note saying HI!

memorial # 45122454
For Mattie F Dever

Is this your information or is it from her headstone?

Her mom died in 1846 so I am confused about her date of birth being 1888

Photos posted - and he's transferred over to your care. If / when I encounter any other family members in this cemetery, I'll shoot them over to you as well. I've photographed the entire section, but going through them all will take some time. My best, Cor.

request in Queens Park Cemetery in Calgary
Re: Thelma Cornwell

I will not be able to find the graves unless I have more information. Please contact the City of Calgary at and request the section, block, and lot number of these graves. Update your requests with that information and I will do my best to find them and photograph them for you.

Sarah Frances Garner

Just wondered if you had any more information about this person, i.e. the obituary you transcribed from, etc. The birth and death dates match my 2nd great grandmother, but her name was Amelia Frances Riggs (taken from my great grandparents' marriage certificate). She married Stephen Lewis, Thomas H. Lynch, Jacob Henry File, and William M. Garner. I'm trying to figure how she ends up with the name Sarah Frances. I have even seen some trees with her name as Frances Elizabeth. Frances has been the constant throughout.

Would appreciate any info you might have or can get a hold of.

Thanks for putting in her memorial, otherwise I probably would never have found her. I'm sure it is her, but the name is a little confusing.

RE: Thank You
Sadly it's a bit worse for wear. I had a survey of the Cemetery, otherwise I'd never have identified the right plot.

Hannah Cornwell
I was able to fill your photo request for Hannah Cornwell. However, the stone is in pretty bad shape and is very difficult to read, especially in the photo.

FYI, there are some pictures of Friern Road and a little information on the V2 strike that killed the Cornwells and Lomasses here: (scroll down to 1st November).

RE: Elenor Dotson
I'm a direct descendent of Elenor and Jacob.

I thought maybe the headstone had a number wrong. Let's say it's the 0. Maybe she was born in 1814 instead of 1804, since 04 is before Nathaniel was married to either Mary or Margaret. So, then I checked the nearest decade of Census I could find that listed names of household members....1880! In that Census, Elinor was married to Jacob and it says she was 76...which means the headstone was right. 1804.

So, that is confusing. Either Nathaniel was actually married 3 times and there was an even earlier wife, or Ms. Cornwall was married previously, and she brought Elinor into the marriage with her. Or, Elinor was a relative but not an offspring. It doesn't seem to have been terribly uncommon that the kids take up residence with a relative other than the parents...because of poverty, because of proximity to a school, or because the kid just likes the other relative better, or a parent dies and the remaining spouse can't take care of the kids. Other reasons abound, of course.

I'm going to look for more Censuses, but there isn't a lot of very specific information like from that time period.

RE: Elenor Dotson

These people think it's supposed to be 1808

I think you're going to end up being correct that her was mother was a Cornwell instead of a Miller.

I'll dig a little more.

Are we cousins? Who among them are you descended from?

Oooh! A family mystery!
Her headstone says born in 1804.

RE: Thank You
Hi Cindy,

Sorry I didn't put up the photos before. They were among random shots I took back in May whilst searching for requests at Camberwell and somehow failed to realise I'd found one of them! It wasn't until I scanned my photos for a new incoming request that I saw the Cornwells.

You'll see I have had the inscription and family links added. I'll leave you to do biographies if you wish, if only from the CWGC records. There is a bit of a mystery over Pauline Lomas's middle name. CWGC has it as Agnes, which was originally copied to Find A Grave, but I've had it changed to Elaine as on the stone as the rules say. There needs to be a note of the discrepancy on the memorial. I can't find her on FreeBMD to verify which is correct.

Camberwell (Old and New) are big places to look for other Cornwells, but if you have any dates of death, I'll look in the appropriate areas. Though with my proven inability to see names even if they're staring me in the face, I don't offer any guarantees!
