|Darlene Dean||RE: May duplicates at Resthaven|
|Lainey D||William Tomkins Collinson|
this is a double question.
You have William Tomkins Collinson buried in Ross Bay Cemetery
Record added: Oct 26, 2012
Find A Grave Memorial# 99624720
I think that the grave is actually his uncle William Collinson ...
Collinson William / 62 y / 1890.09.05 / born Yorkshire / died Plumper Pass, BC / Block B, Plot 58 W 35
secondly, on Mayne Island, apparently there is a private cemetery - Collinson Private cemetery. and that's where WIlliam Tomkins, as well as his wife Mary, are buried. I lived on Mayne for 5 years, and I was unaware of this cemetery. But it must be there because someone sent me a photo of WIlliam TOmkins headstone.
What I'm looking for is information on whereabouts this cemetery is on the island, as well as details on who is buried there - and hopefully photos.
any thoughts on these two issues?

|Paul||RE: David L Scott|
Sorry about taking so long in replying, but I did my genealogy work back in the mid 90's and had not done much until today. I found the web page where I got the information on David Scott. The web page is
This page came in from the Ware family and Lucinda Ware had married Alexander Scott.
I have three different sources giving the same wedding date of 4 December 1837. The web page has 15 October 1837. Either could be right, but I'm staying with December 4. The page has other slightly different dates, names, etc. Looking at David's Daughter, Mary Lucinda Scott's Find a Grave record the text says Lindsey was David's middle name.
Also found a thread at http://boards.ancestry.com/surnames.scott/1984.1/mb.ashx
asking for more information about a G Grandfather named David Lucinda T Scott.
Been looking for other internet data on the middle name, but had not found any as yet.
The really strange one was the last will and testament of Alexander Scott, David's Father. I have a hard copy of the written will and in the text it lists David with a middle initial of "D" (The initial D is exactly like the first letter in David's name). Why someone that witnessed the will didn't correct this I do not know. I don't believe it was David D Scott, but should be David Lucinda T Scott.

What a difference a missing preposition makes! The update has been made. I also added a maiden name of Carpenter for Lelah Marr.
Thanks for the clarification.
P.S. I wish I were still teaching middle school English. I could have made an entire lesson out of this! lol
|Janet Marie||Lelah Marr # 115348867|
I received a request to update Lelah Marr from you that is a bit confusing. This is what it said, "Daughter Isaac C Carpenter #86435573 -- could you please link?"
I cannot link a person to his/her child. I can only link a child to his/her parent. Also, Isaac Cook Carpenter # 86435573 does not sound like a daughter to me.
Please look into this and let me know how I can help you.
