Taking pictures of the head stones is a stroll through time from the dates and wondering whom these people were.

^If there are photo's you wish to use for your Family Tree's and records,please do so.You may give credit to your source,that is your call.


*any errors are mine and corrections welcome.I gather material from every where on the faith that its correct,sometimes not. Photo's to the memorials are welcome.Just because its etched in stone,don't assume its right.

** If there are memorials that you are related to as per the guidelines I will turn them over to you.The hope is,their Family members will care over these memorials and continue to honor our dearly departed.

RE: The Cann Family requests.
Hello Bruce,

Thanks so much for looking for the markers. However, can I ask who the parents of these babies were? John and Charlotte Cann? Sounds like twins that didn't survive. Thanks again for looking.

Cheers, Gail

Ledgerwood Headstone Pics.
Bruce
Professionally done. Thank You. There is only about 4,000 Ledgerwoods on Find a Grave. I am related to all of them. William Ledgerwood and William Taylor brought their families to the 1849 California Gold Rush. The son and daughter of the two Williams, Jim Taylor and Rachel Ledgerwood married in the 1860's in California, had 13 kids. The two Williams are my Great Great Grandfathers. It is always wonderful to see another piece of the puzzle.
Many Blessings!

RE: Willis n Percival Brown
Thank you so much Bruce for getting the pictures ... also for adding the picture of the cap badge. I’m surprised that Willis doesn’t have a Commonwealth marker ... he certainly would have been entitled to one. Maybe the family either wasn’t aware of that or just preferred to have the foot stone. Nice to know his grave is in a peaceful spot. I’m hoping to get up there this summer to visit my great grandparents graves and other family members buried in Greenwood and will definitely pay a visit to his.

RE: Willis n Percival Brown
Thanks Bruce. I felt so sad to see his memorial with nothing on it about his service.

Willis Clark Brown

Hi Bruce,

Hoping you can help with this. I noticed the memorial for Willis Clarke Brown .... Find A Grave Memorial# 44654999 in Greenwood Cemetery, Owen Sound. He had served during WWI. He was wounded in France and was exposed to poisonous gas which eventually caused his death after he had been discharged back in Canada. His memorial had no information about him on it so I sent an edit to have information added.

I was wondering if you happen to be at Greenwood Cemetery sometime in the future if you could get a picture of his headstone. I assume it would be a commonwealth stone as he is listed as a casualty on CVWM and CWGC. Here is the info from Greenwood Cemetery for the location of his grave:
G-W32- 19-E 3 Brown, Willis Clark Mr. 27 01/03/1921 27/02/1921
This is info is for his father so it is possible he is named on his stone:
G-W32- 19-E 1 Brown, Percival A Mr. 61 03/12/1924 01/12/1924
It would greatly be appreciated it. This man obviously went through a lot and needs to be remembered.

Take care, Margaret
