RE: Griffiths and Ada Hughes and the Sunshine Disaster
Hello Rebecca, sorry for the delay. I have transferred ownership of the memorials for Ada and Griffiths Hughes to you so that you can update the information on the Sunshine Station Disaster. I hope you can find photos of Ada and Griffiths! Thank you for all your work on this information.

RE: Elizabeth E. (McCleaster) Thompson
I understand about losing messages. I think you have corrected the problem. Initially you had listed the 2nd marriage of Elizabeth as ending in divorce. On the census of 1880, the daughter Josephine McGowen is listed as divorced, not her mother. You have taken the entry about divorce off her memorial. I also think the marriage actually ended in death of Moses F Thompson. Elizabeth & Moses F. had 2 children, Eva & MF, which she was probably pregnant with at the time of his death. On the 1870 census Elizabeth is listed as head, and I cannot locate Moses that year. Thank you for your help on this family.

I think the picture you have for Charles, is in fact, Harold Sidney Woodall, his cousin.

John Tasman TANNER.
Hi Rebecca,
My recent research on 'John Tasman Tanner' suggests that he is buried at:

Kingston, St. Clement's Anglican Church Cemetery,

and not

King Island Anglican Cemetery, Currie.

I would be most grateful if you could look over this, and see what you think.
With best wishes,

Mary Ann GILES.
Hi Rebecca,
I have been doing some further research on Mary Ann GILES and I have just realised that the information that I gave you with regards to her maiden name is incorrect.
She was married twice in her life time. Her maiden names is actually 'STREET' (and not AITCHISON, as I originally told you).
Please accept my sincerest apologies for the mis-information.
With best wishes,

RE: Edits in Glen Innes
Hi Rebecca. I'm sitting in Brisbane and haven't been to any of these wonderful burial grounds which I am researching in the NSW highlands. But before I make a suggestion to someone about possible adjustments to be made, I try to verify my data from several different sources e.g. NSW BDM, AustCemIndex, Cemetery lists published by the cemeteries themselves or a closely related historical society, or Trove articles and notices. But, I'm sure I am also sometimes wrong, and don't mind being told so. All suggestions meant kindly. Kind regards, Robyn

RE: At sea
1. Thanks for your reply and the efforts you've put in on China. That must have been very hard.

2. Wilson J Hunt of Brooklyn, age 28, died 7 Feb 1859 at sea, the "Amaranth". Body delivered to "English Cemetery", Hong Kong, China.

3. I never realized that "At sea" was a search option. DOH! However, he's not there, nor at any country at any date. I even tried Hunt Wilson. The only person on Find A Grave that could possibly be him is this man: I contacted the memorial owner to ask, but this is an enormous cemetery and he probably entered a batch of burials and doesn't know.

Thanks for your help, I truly appreciate it.

Ms. Ewing Peterson--

Thanks for the kind comments. I had posted a photo of Charles White(97739349) and of his marker (I thought). Will try that again. Thanks also for your good work on the portrait of William Rhoades Bly, Sr.(104538865). The revised photo is most acceptable--please leave it and delete the one I uploaded. You reference a photo of my g.mother, Hattie Shields Hatch White (97739252). I have not yet posted a photo of her. Could you mean Phylenia C Sanford Hatch (104536052)? If so, please feel free to work your magic and replace the existing photo. I also have a new site photo with the markers in place. Could you delete the existing site photo and I will add mine? I appreciate your courtesy in leaving my name on the photo, but I do not have a problem with anyone's name on there. The accuracy is the important thing--not the publicity. Thanks again for all the time and effort you put into this project for all of us.

Reagrding the Holy Trinity Cemetery in Shanghai....
Hello, Ms Ewing Peterson:

I have a brief obituary from The New York Times concerning a man who died at sea, February 1859. "His remains were deposited in the English Cemetery at Hong Kong, China." On Find A Grave, I find the formerly named "English Cemetery" in Shanghai where you have photographed. I know that China is a huge nation, but would you happen to know if one of these Hong Kong cemeteries is the one I'm looking for?

* British Military Cemetery -
* Hong Kong Cemetery [Also known as: Colonial Cemetery] -

Thank you for your time, Jay.

Dear Rebecca,
great to hear from you. Without your work we will not be able to add some of the stones as they are so worn out. A few stones we are not adding at the moment as cannot find in your listing - may be there are some discrepancies. would you care to share the source?
Pleas reply to our e-mail which you can find on our page - there is a lot more we would like to talk to you about.
kind regards

RE: Incorrect photo removed
Thank you very much for correcting that Rebecca.

I have on record that Frederick Cocks' brother Albert Abraham Cocks was buried in Sutton Cemetery in Greater London (Surrey) - death 12 Apr 1943. Family records are that he is buried in Plot B - Grave? # 104. Albert's wife Alice (nee Sayers) was also buried there 7 years earlier in June of 1936.

I have attempted to find that grave in the Find-a-grave system, but to date have not found it. There seems to be a cemetery on record, but only 116 graves included and no record of either Albert or Alice. There also seems to be a MUCH larger cemetery nearby named Merton & Sutton Joint Cemetery but again there is no Cocks or Cox graves identified among only 80 interrments included.

Thanks again and best regards

Bill Cook
