Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello ~ We were a husband and wife team until I lost my husband in October 2012. The photos are mainly his work. I do the typing.

If you have additional information, or a correction that you would like me to make to a memorial, please use the "Edit" tab to suggest corrections. I am usually able to act on them within 24 hours.

If we have created a memorial for one of your loved ones and you wish to enhance it in some way, please use the "Edit" tab to request a transfer. We not related to 90% of our listings, and I am happy to transfer memorials as long as they are not our own loved ones.

I enjoy looking at the memorials that we have transferred to others and seeing the additional photos, links and bio's that have been added to them. It is wonderful to know that the memorials have found loving caretakers. I hope that the generous people who have entrusted us with the management of memorials that they created are just as pleased with the information and photos that we have added.

You are welcome to use our headstone and cemetery entrance photos for your personal genealogy. Please keep in mind that this is not blanket permission to use any photo on Find-A-Grave, only OUR photos.

If you would like to use one of our family photos (any photos of people), I would appreciate it if you would contact us first using the "Edit" tab on the memorial that is of interest to you.

If you have a moment, please leave a token for a Veteran. We owe them so much.

Thank you!

IN FLANDERS FIELDS

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.


John McCrae 1915

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 76471128
Hello Lido,
Thank you for your response. I would like you to know that my interest in this line goes down to Jean Baptiste Souliere (1788-1879) son of Jean Baptiste Souliere (1751-1831) & Catherine Saulquin (1760-1838) and his 2 daughters Marie Louise born 18 April 1813 and Marguerite born 15 August 1812 in Fort William, mother unknown. I believe this Marguerite to be my 3rd great grandmother.

Having said that, I do not have a copy of Rev. Fr. Christian Denissen records but my research indicates that Jean Baptiste Souliere's (1751-1831) mother is NOT Marguerite Payment but Marie Rose Vegiard Labonte. I do, however, have several Church registry documents,written in french (not an issue for me as I am fully bilingual & which I would gladly share with you) which confirms this and each of the following:

4 Feb 1743 Jean Bernadin Souliere married Marguerite Payment
2 May 1744 Marguerite Payment, wife of Bernadin Souliere died
26 Feb 1748 Jean Bernadin, widow of Marguerite Payment, married Marie Rose Vegiard dit Labonte
28 Mar 1751 born and baptised on this day, Jean Baptiste son of Jean Bernadin and Marie Rose Vegiard
23 Feb 1778 Jean Baptiste married Catherine Saulquin
24 May 1788 born and baptised on this day, Jean Baptiste son of Jean Baptiste and Catherine Saulquin

This is the Jean Baptiste(24 May1788) that I believe is the father of my 3rd great grandmother Marguerite who was baptised on:
9 Jul 1817 at age 5 along with her sister Marie Louise at age 4. The document indicates that both girls were anointed by Magloire Antoine Tabeau in Sault Ste Marie.

In your response, with regards to Rev. Fr. Christian Denissen you indicate that In his book, he shows John Baptiste as the son of Jean Barnardin and Marguerite Payment. There is no date of death shown for Marguerite, and no second marriage shown for Jean Barnardin.

If you have access to his book, I wonder if you might check if there are any referrences
to Jean Baptiste (24 May 1788) and the two girls. This would be greatly appreciated!
In the meantime, I hope the info that I provided helps with your research.
Best Regards,
Paul Belcourt (paulrbel@hotmail.com)

John Baptiste Souliere's mother is incorrectly listed as Marguerite Payment. If Marguerite died in 1744, then Jean Baptiste would not be her son in 1752. My records indicate his mother is Marie Rose Vegiard Labonte(1726-1804) who is Jean Bernadin's second wife married on 26 Feb 1748

RE: Assumption Cemetery
Not a problem. It gives my wife & I much needed exercise. I just get frustrated when I can't find markers to help people out.

RE: Wharton's at Woodmere
I'm going back in Aug or Sept. If nobody picks up your request by that time, I will be sure to take a look and let you know what I find. The cemetery gave me a good chart with all the burials listed by name for that section.

RE: Wharton's at Woodmere
Lido,
I am glad you contacted me. I searched Sec E, block 34, lot 157 for Henry Wharton. There clearly is no marker for his grave. When I reported the problem of Find A Grave, I inadvertently posted the information on the request for Hannah Wharton (Sec E, Block 33, Lot 118. Then I was unable to fix the mistake. Maybe you can remove the request and resubmit it. Sorry for the error, but I did not get a chance to look for Hannah's grave and I did not want it to appear as though I had.

Sarah Ensign
Hi,
I have a question about the entry for Sarah Ensign in William Ganong Cemetery in Westland. It says "possibly the first wife of Datus Ensign." Was that in the cemetery records? Datus isn't buried there so I'm wondering how his name came up. I'm actually trying to find where he is buried. I think she was his first wife as well (he married his second wife Charity Coles in 1885).

Thanks,
Karen Graham-Cannon

I posted an edit suggestion and accidentally entered "Ann" for middle name when it should have been "Virginia". Sorry!
