Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family history for almost 30 years and this is an absolute passion :)

Primary surnames are McCluskey, Curran, Barber, Neil & Edgar (maternal) and Chester, Thompson, Slawson, Templeton & Holmes (paternal).

I share with many the firm belief that we are merely stewards of 'our' memorials - we manage them and are entrusted with their care and maintenance, but we do not technically 'own' them. As another member so eloquently stated, the ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away - regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

I'm certainly open to transferring memorials or updating as needed; my goal is to 'connect not collect'. Please use the Edit tab.

You are welcome to copy and use anything I post in any way you like.

Enjoy, Joe

RE: David H. Godfrey (#62684806)
You're welcome. Glad I could link and add information for the family. The Godfrey family I've been updating more over the last few days. Are you related to this family?

RE: Kearly & Buyers graves @ Twin Lakes
The "older" section does have quite a few missing headstones, so It could be possible they are there, but the stone is missing. Yours was on the older side. Especially the Kearley ones.

RE: Bertha Witter grave @ Au Sable
Unfortunately, the cemetery is in quite disrepair. The sign says that only 10% of the markers are left standing. I walked the 60 or so left and few are still readable. Sorry!

RE: John & Irene Edgar @ New Garden / Delta
Your welcome, I'm glad I could help. I like volunteering to take pictures. Its a way I can "pay it forward" for the people who have done it for me.

You are very welcome! I put Muriel's photo on. I believe they may have a daughter & grandson in this plot with them. If you are interested in them let me know. Carla :)
