"So much of what is great has sprung from the closeness of OurFamilyTies."
----- Sir Thomas M. Barrie (1860-1937), playwright and novelist

I do add non-family graves, If I've added one of your friends or family members and you have additional information. Go to the "EDIT" tab on the memorial page to send me a correction or addition. I will do transfers to family members even if they are not within the findagrave guidelines, as long as the person you're asking for is not my own family.

"Wer die Vergangenheit nicht ehot verliet die Zukunft. Wer seine Wurzeln verrichtet kann nicht wachsen."
Who does not honor the past, loses the future. Who destroys its roots, can not grow.
----- Friedrich Hundertwasser, Austrian artist-architect, 1928-2000

Charles Engel
On the Cemeteries of Medicine Hat and District site
it lists the following info for Charles Engel interred in St George's Parish Cemetery (SW 36-11-3-W4, about one half mile south of Irvine):
"Engel, Charles: died 25 Nov 1918, at 38 years. Block 1, lot 14, north 1/2. Reference Albert Engel"

I have a relative named Charles Engel who died on 25 Nov 1918 and his brother was Albert Engel, who lived close to him north of Irvine. I would appreciate it if you would confirm that your data on the Find A Grave site for "Charles Engels" is correct. Thank you.

Not sure if this is the same one because of the different year of death.

RE: Thank you!
Hi Wanda,
I am glad I could help you out! I want to try to get back there and finish up photographing that section (Section 7) of the cemetery. I believe he has a military marker as well. I was there yesterday and just as I took the photo of his gravestone it started down-pouring. I will let you know if he has another stone.

RE: Hello
Yes, I am related to them. They are a distant relation. "Kicker" was my fathers best friend. I still associate with Mike (facebook) and many other Rank's. They live in Michigan and, in fact, are celebrating the yearly Rank reunion as we speak. Are you related?

I made the nickname and maiden name corrections manually. I'm not making the change in the middle initial. To me it is proper to place a period after a letter when the letter goes in the middle name block. The stone has a period after the S. Thanks for the corrections.

RT Wilson Sr.
Great picture of RTW Sr.! I have some information about his financial involvement in southwest Virginia if you are interested. He saved a very important farming enterprise.

Catherine Brandow Schermerhorn
I am researching the Brandow family for someone who wants to join DAR. I see you put a picture of Catherine on her memorial--do you have any additional information about her? There is a bit of confusion about her mother's name and I thought you might have an obituary for her. The DAR applicant is descended from Catherine's brother who died almost 30 years before she did.
