|Douglas Kirk Sorensen||James Abrahamson's suggestion|
Thank you for his obituary. I've added it. Even with the interment info in the obituary I can't seem to find the appropriate cemetery in Findagrave. I will keep looking. Best Regards - Doug Sorensen
|Louis Mata||RE: Updates|
I had the Henry Hill dupe page deleted, however I have not heard from the Kyle Bennett person.
If you have burial info on either, you can send it to famous@findagrave and they will update the page.
|Paul Sutton Kamalsky||RE: Henry S. Wells|
You are truly welcome. It was fast because all I had to do is go to
the Sunnyside folder and find the photo. I photographed this nifty
cemetery on August 18, 2012. It sits on a knoll on the Outlet Road
Now that I have a large framed mirror, I'm going to redo all stones
that did light up when the sun was out. I will take Henry Wells first
|Joanne Morehouse||Michael Sholar|
Thank you for the additional information. I added it to the memorial.
|Claire Tomlinson||RE: Robert Hostler Burgess|
Thank you for your reply. Robert Hostler Burgess was born in Haddenham, Cambridge, UK on 29th August 1908. He was put into Barnardos care in1911. He was emigrated to canada on 11th march 1920 aboard the SS Sicilian and arrived in St John 28 march 1920. I have found in 1921 census he was placed with the Schier family, Clifford and Maude and their 2 young children, in Scott township, north ontario, as a lodger.
Barnardos in the UK have told me they have record of Robert still alive and in Toronto in 1944. How they know this I do not know. They will not reveal any more info they may have, until I can trace death record for Robert, or prove he has no descendants in canada. My mom is 83, and Robert would have been her uncle. Back then, it was not talked about much, and there was no social security or financial help. Barnardos would have been only option. Robert also had an older brother Cecil R Burgess, b.19th december 1898 in Haddenham. He too was admitted to Barnardos in 1911, and shipped to canada june 1912. I have always wondered if the two brothers were ever reconciled in canada? I cannot find death records for either brother.
Their mother was Emily Elizabeth Burgess born 1874. Her husband died at 31, and she had 2 children to care for, Cecil, and my grandma, Ruby Burgess, who, as she was older, escaped Barnardos. Robert was born later, no father listed on birth certificate, but I wonder if his middle name 'Hostler' was his fathers name, I do not know. As I said, Barnardos told me both brothers were alive and in Toronto in 1944, doing what, I do not know. Sorry to go on at length! It is just so frustrating to draw a blank. I know a lot of home children did not have good lives in canada, Im just trying to find out more about my mom's two uncles. Thank you, Claire Tomlinson.

Information has been added. Thanking you in return, Richard.
|Claire Tomlinson||Robert Hostler Burgess|
Do you know anything about Robert Hostler Burgess? Is he buried at Wingham cemetery? He was a home child emigrated to canada in 1920 by Barnardos in the UK. He was my grandma's brother. Barnardos will not give me any more information unless I can trace records of his death, and I am currently drawing a blank, even records for this cemetery say date of birth and death unknown, thats if it is the Robert H Burgess I am looking for. Thank you. Ms Claire Tomlinson, Cumbria,England.
|Janet Marie||Margaret Zeatlow|
The updates you requested for Margaret Zeatlow have been made. I also linked her to her parents based on the bio you sent. I found her brother, Leon, and linked him to his parents as well, but I did not find her brother, Lyle.
Thank you very much for the additional information.
Thank you so very much.
