Bio and Links
Bio Photo I developed taphophilia in Nov 2007. I'm adding what I can, photos and accurate transcriptions, because stones deteriorate and there's no better time than now.

On a philosophical note: I believe that an unmarried woman's surname should never be listed in the "maiden name" field, and a divorced woman who returned to her maiden name should also have that name as her surname.

This is marked as an "unmarked grave". What was the source material for adding this person? DO you have access to church records? Thanks.

Bernard Wasdyke
Thank you for the photo of Bernard Wasdyke's "grave"... Can you tell me anything as to why his name is on a plaque? Is it some sort of a cremains garden where his ashes are?

Surname Addition - Jane "McEwen", Pioneer Cemetery, Perth, Ontario

Thanks for the correction Chris. This has been a brutal cemetery. 600 or so monuments mostly in a state of decay, vandalized or buried. The town has done some work but thank goodness I found a copy of the only known transcription done almost 25 years ago at The Ontario Archives.

Almost done the photos then the fun part begins - to go back and braille-read the 60 or so monuments that need it and finish prying the grass of the rest of the partially buried ones. And then on to trying to correlate and extend the only known plot maps from one section to the other two using the GPS data.
