Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in Family Geneology for some years now. I have a Family Database that extends several trees. My interest is in old graveyards, and recording gravestones information so that they are not lost. The little pieces we put in here, might be the lost pieces of a puzzle people are looking for to complete their family trees in the future. If there are things to be changed, please contact me, and it will be changed to reflect the correct history. In putting on memorials, I usually put on a birthdate(deathdate minus died at age), because maybe you only have a birthdate, and the pieces will fit. Please note that changes will only be made, if you have actual dates to show for the change. My family trees can be found on Access code: you will need to contact administrator, due to privacy issues, for ability to see tree. It is still being compiled, as we find more families to record. If by chance, you spy one of your ancestors on my site, it can be transferred to you..just ask. I went to Gettysburg, PA, in 2012, and will also be posting graves of men not mentioned on this site.

I believe that our Thomas Gibbins who is buried with his wife Mary Elizabeth Fluney in the Maple Grove Cemetery at Dundalk, Ontario - is connected with your Gibbins at Wood bridge, Ont.The Gibbins children were born at Vaughan. According to Thomas Gibbins death regn. for 1935 his father was John Gibbins and mother was Newman. Thomas was born at Woodbridge,Ont.

RE: Your Neice
We are so grateful. I often wonder what percentage of the memorials ever come to the attention of family. In this case, it did, and it was so nice to see that you had created it.

About the crack, I am pretty sure that what is visible across the stone is actually not a crack. When you look close, it's the dried out stem of a rose that my brother and sister-in-law left there.

all the best,
