I was looking through some records regarding Emily J. Southard Grey and noted that she was connected as a daughter to a James Southard who is buried in Collingwood Cemetery. It is noted on his stone that he was born in 1773 and died in 1853. In the 1860 Census, Emily is noted to be in the household of James and Mary Southard (her parents) along with her brother John and sister Ann. I haven't been able at this point to determine the death dates of either of her parents but believe that her mother was still living in 1880. According to the records that I have Emily's father James would have been born around 1796 (his christening date is April 10, 1796 in England) and his marriage to Mary Ellis (DOB about 1800) on January 25, 1821 also in England. They immigrated to the U.S. May 10, 1832. Do you have any supporting documents that would support that this is Emily's father?

You may be correct but I want to make sure. I live in the house that was built by the Widney family in the 1830's. There is a history of that family in the Johnston era during that time. I did extensive research on the interments at the Johnston Cemetery. My 3rd great grandfather is there and many other family members. And, I have never heard of a Widmeyer. Jenny Brown's memorial was up first, so if there needs to be a name change on hers, I will still delete mine. So, do you have a record indicating WIDMEYER? I will stop at the cemetery on my way home and read the stone again. Thanks, Matt
Glad you're picking up on some these inscriptions in Brock of military nature...some are hard reads. Appreciated.

Please explain to me why you think that Rathgens and the surname, Gray, are duplicate memorials.
One stone is laying down, the other one has been repaired and is standing up.
Is Rathsens surname "Rathjens"? If so, I'll correct it. Can you supply me with further data for Rathjens?

Amos Penrose at Friends,
I did not put this photo on the memorial. It says KAT under it. I don't think I can delete it. I think Kat has to do it. Amos is one of my grandfathers.
