|Bio and Links|
I have been doing genealogy for decades and teach some classes, but am not a professional genealogist. I love the puzzle of finding my ancestors and those of my husband. My favorite vacation involves cemeteries and visiting historical and family history sites. I currently live in Florida, but I was born in California and grew up in Washington State. My children and grandchildren live in the mid-west so we travel a lot to visit living relatives and stop at the cemeteries of our ancestors whenever I can persuade my husband to do so. I will add pictures of gravestones as I take them.|

|Dave & Janice Yakel||Elmwood cemetery in Winnipeg|
If you ever find yourself in Winnipeg, visit the Suffron grave and visit the Elmwood cemetery office and spread a good word about findagrave.

The Waterford group has made a great effort to recover the cemetery. I remember it when I was a kid and it was totally overgrown and covered with scrubbrush and weeds and trees. It had more gravestones then but they were almost all down on the ground. If you contact the Waterford Library, they will be able to put you in contact with someone to help you find a cemetery plot and I could take a photo of the approximate location. It's a very peaceful location.
You're welcome......my pleasure.

|Buddy Leech||RE: Ezekiel Swarthout|
You are most welcome, Leslie. I lead the Wayne Sons of the American Legion (SAL) Graveyard Committee, so had the help of two good helpers. Our objective is to locate veterans buried in cemeteries in the vicinity of Wayne so that the American Legion can recognize them with a fresh flag yearly and a marker, if needed. We were canvassing Wayne Village Cemetery and our maps guy was able to locate Ezekiel.
Helen Thomas had requested a gravesite photo for Olive Wright Swarthout, his wife. Our records indicate that she is buried in WVC and she has a Find A Grave Memorial (#56536253), but her name doesn't appear on graveyard maps prepared by Don Rowland (Wane American Legion Historian) in 1981. The gravesite adjacent to and south of Ezekiel's is marked "Unknown". This is likely Olive's gravesite, but her headstone was removed between Mar. 1875 and 1981. I'd like to post photos of the base next to Ezekiel's headstone as being hers, but I'm not certain ... though I would place a substantial bet that that is her gravesite. I'd welcome any comments.

My pleasure. Sorry the stones are so hard to read, but I cleaned them a little to be sure. Happy hunting, Wanda

|Lawrence W Dawson||RE: William Mann and the other Manns|
I enjoy doing the photos, I intend when back there at Nora, sometime next week, and see if the moss remover and rain has cleaned it a little better, I will take a new one and post for Estella's side, I will inform when done...
|Lawrence W Dawson||RE: Harold Mann and his wife and mother|
I have uploaded a couple more photos for Harold and Alice Mann, they were buried under leaves, and were grown over, I found them this morning as I was doing the William Mann Monument. I sprayed the memorial with moss killer, (does not harm stone) I also uploaded a new Mastella photo...Williams will be done later today or tomorrow. The cemetery was raked and cleaned this last week so that helped to find others.
