I grew up in Willowdale during the 60's and was always fascinated by the Cummer Burial ground. I remember as a young boy passing by on the sidewalk(afraid to go in) and seeing the large headstone in the middle. It appeared to be a plaque surrounded by cemented rocks. I could see, if I strained, a date in the 1700's on the stone, but nothing else. I looked through the listings but didn't see it attached to any name, however, I see it in the "cemetery photos" section. Can you tell me who it was?

RE: Thomas and Lottie Black
Sorry, my mistake, Thomas' parents are buried in Prospect Cemetery - not the same cemetery as Thomas and Lottie.

Thomas and Lottie Black
Thanks so much for the taking the time to post the pictures of their memorials. I really appreciate it. I will contact the cemetery to find out why they do not have Thomas' parents listed. I have the original cemetery records showing their burial locations and my Great Grandfather paid for them.

Thanks again,

Roy Woodruff

Oops, just got your correction. At least I have the pic of the section where she is buried, no worries. I have come across that too with other relatives. Thanks for trying.

Thank you so much for taking the time to find the marker for her. I can't be there in person but at least I have a picture of her resting place now.

Well that's interesting that they have no record of him. Found his death certificate which is where I got the Information from. Will have to look more into it.

RE: Bowler - Mount Pleasant!
Weird, I noticed the picture looked like he was on the right side of the wall, but I remember him on the left corner. Maybe he was moved? Thanks again.

RE: Millers
Hey, since you're going anyway - I'm maxed out (as usual) on photo requests right now but Sue just e-mailed with me a couple more plots if you're in the area.

William John Gaynor, Section P, Lot 8616

Lavina Gaynor, Section 8-4379 - probably nothing there like her son Gordon but just in case ...

Very warm here too but we are getting dumped on by rain at the moment. Hope it doesn't catch you out there.

Thanks again for both photo and creation/transfer of Nancy! I love it when a stone yields previously unknown information. I had been looking for her with no luck, till now. :)

Woo hoo! Wasn't expecting a photo so soon given the weather. Thanks so much! Thanks also for the transfer of John Beverley. I haven't figured out where he fits yet but when I do, I will make the appropriate links.

Richard Short

I just came across the memorial page for Richard Short in the Hamilton Cemetery. I see that you made the memorial page & added the headstone photo. I was wondering if you are related to him or if you took the photo for a family member who put in a request for a photo to be taken.

Richard Short is my maternal great great grandfather & I know nothing of any family members before him. Anything you may know of him would be a great help in my family search.

Thank you so much for your time.

Thanks for trying to find his marker. I appreciate what you've done even if there was nothing there. The plot map is progress.

Did the people who provided you with the map happen to mention if he is buried with his wife Marjorie Ruddock McKay who died in 1916?

Violet Dodd at Mount Pleasant
Accidentally hit enter before I could type anything in the previous message .... lol.

What I was trying to say was thanks for the pictures you loaded to Violet's memorial! I also got your message about being impeded by snow, so look forward to seeing if she has a flat marker once everything melts.

In the meantime, I've just created a memorial for her husband - Find A Grave Memorial# 138928296 - since I see his name is also on the Salvation Army marker. Can you add the photos from Violet's memorial to his memorial as well?

Thanks so much for all this! I really appreciate it.
