RE: Parents of Percival McPhail
Yes I did put in a request to link Mary Doel McPhail to her Edward, but it has not been processed. Thanks!

RE: Parents of Percival McPhail
Hi there,

Yes, Mary Jane was the second wife and Mary Doel was the first. I thought I had put in a request to link Mary Doel McPhail to Edward as his first wife...perhaps not. I have a lot of these names in my family tree if you are related. Are you related to Sarah Belle Gibbard. Happy to share info over email. Diane

Mountain Grove Cemeteries
Hi Brant,

Central Frontenac Township did not "amalgamate" the cemeteries into one, they just renamed them using the "Mountain Grove" header for their files, so they knew where they were. The three cemeteries therefore became:
Mountain Grove - Old
Mountain Grove - New
Mountain Grove - Anglican
I do agree with Find A Grave that the original name (cemetery sign) should be the dominant name, with the "new" names as an AKA.

I take it you frequently come to Kingston? I would love to get together with you on one of your next trips and discuss the great work you have been doing, and cemetery work in general. I have sent you my email address through your web site.

Regards,
Lorraine Sherren, UE

RE: Cemeteries at Mountain Grove
Hello Brant,
Don't you love AKAs. OK, here's the problem. Yes, there are three cemeteries in Mountain Grove (which is in the historic township of Olden). When the new amalgamated township of South Frontenac took over, they renamed ALL the cemeteries "Mountain Grove" to identify where they were. The signs, however, were left intact for the benefit of the "oldtimers" who knew them by that name. They are:

1) Twp. name: Mountain Grove - Old
Sign says: Olden Pioneer Cemetery - Mountain Grove
Location: 1317 Ferguson Road (N/W corner)
Status: Inactive (accepting family burials only)

2) Twp. name: Mountain Grove - New
Sign says: Olden Cemetery
Location: 1249 Godfrey Road (S/E corner)
Status: Active

3) Twp. name: Mountain Grove - Anglican
Sign says: St. John's Anglican Cemetery
Location: Godrey road (S/W corner)
Status: Inactive (accepting family burials only)

I hope this clears up the confusion. From your location description, I believe I have attached the right sign to the right cemetery (I have pictures for all, having been there myself).

By the way, I love all the work you have done on your web site, and added it in many cases as an online resource for cemetery transcriptions.

Sincerely,
Lorraine Sherren, UE

RE: Howard K. Baker
Hi Brant,

I've sent a message to Mr. Newman, but as yet, no reply. I posted a scan of the Bible page with the information about Howard and Virginia on Howard's memorial.

Mary :)

RE: Howard K. Baker
Hi Brant,

Gustave was married twice. The children, Virginia and Howard are with his first wife, Mary L. Nichols. He lived in Auburn, NY at the time. Florence Keeler is his second wife, much younger than himself. They just had the one child, my grandmother, Bertha Agnes Baker.

It can get confusing at times can't it? :)

Mary
