Bio Photo Thank you Zinger for sponsoring Lieut Charles A. Hammond. Remember those who served and died for their country.

Many are entered under BOTH maiden and married names. Please check BOTH

Dupes standing out in a cemetery are being dealt with. When I am finished each cemetery, admin will run the deduper.



from the faqs: Additionally, biographical information and obituaries are not to be included in a virtual flower.


It has a name .... "VANDALISM" and it is a crime of which you can be charged.

So someone comes to your house and chalks the numbers so they can better read them OR
Someone chalks your vehicles licence plates because they are old and barely readable. OR
Someone thinks it's great to chalk your neighbours house with graffiti
OR....Well you get the picture.

RE: Robert Arnold Rhodes
I have deleted mine. I always search before I enter a new one, especially in Creemore, but somehow I missed this one. I see there are two for Gertrude Baker Rhodes too. (not mine)

his memorial is 142915230.
Please forgive me for entering a spouse for this person. It is in error-William Lutz. I was one number off in linking him to his spouse. Again, I am so sorry to trouble you to remove him.

Yes that is the information that I have from his enlistment papers in 1916.

The only other information that I have is that is father was Charles and his mother was Mary Anne and he was born in Lambton England.

at that point I hit a dead end. I would like at some time(on my bucket list of things to do go to Ottawa and look through his military records and see what I can find

Thanks again for looking into this

I have is basic enlistment(assenction?) papers from the web but that is all I can find at the moment. If you have access to any other records I would appreciate it. I have very little information about him and my dad is now gone so the only info that is available is archival.

Thank you for your help. I was on a trip up to Waubaushene ON about 6 years ago and I took the pictures of the headstone at that time.

Thank you for your reply, and thank you for your work that you did to add his memorial to this website I appreciate it very much.

I was trying to determine if this was my grandfather or just a coincidence that there were 2 people with the same last name who were in the same battalion in WW1. I see that you have changed the name to John from Agnes.

I am fine with you being the custodian of the page and as I said that I appreciate this very much.

I do have a couple of pictures of his headstone, and with your permission I can add them

Thank you again

I stumbled across your entry in the Waubaushene Protestant Cemetery section for who I believe is my Grandfather. He is listed as "Pvt Agnes Archer" and I think it should be PVT John Archer b: 1880 d: January 16,1961.

I do have pictures of the headstone if that helps.

If you require any further information please contact me at

Thank you in advance

Hi again,

I will be happy to remove them from the cemetery, as that was my first inclination, to list them as burial unknown. It was only after an e-mail from Beth Mills (OhSunnyOne) that I put them in that cemetery.

As a rule, I DO NOT put people in cemeteries if I do not know, either through a cemetery transcription, death record, obituary, or calling the cemetery, that the person is buried there.

And I avoid putting burials unknown (unless I know they were cremated, as with more recent burials). However, at further back, or, shall I say, upper generational levels, I will put people on Find A Grave, if by doing that I can link all their known descendants together. Even if I don't know where they are buried. And I am talking about early 1800's (in Canada) and 1700's (in USA). As you will see, I did this for the "Cooke" family, as I know about so many of their descendants.

So I will immediately take them out of the cemetery.

And, I want to thank you for all that you have done. I am sure it would be an onerous task to correct duplicate entries. Just yesterday, I came across one of yours, but I did not inform you of it since, after reading your bio, I figured you'd get to it when you get to it. I am really not trying to cause you more work. But if you would like me to point out the duplicates to you that you manage, as I come across them, then please let me know. Sadly, I can't remember the name of who I came across yesterday. Oh, I just searched for it, it was Jessie Catherine (Stewart) Ferguson in Creemore Union Cemetery. I don't know if this is helpful or not to you.

As you will see from my bio, I am trying to input on Find A Grave information that I have obtained over about 40 years of research. Because my stuff is old, meaning that the research was done years ago, and I have support for it, it is just buried somewhere in my house, pre- computer age.

Mary Ann (Kidd) Cooke

Thank you for responding to me about the above tombstone. I could not see the name Mary Ann on it. I had to blow up the image and put on my reading glasses!!!

Because of that, I have changed my Find A Grave entry to show the Mary living in 1861 as a second wife to Thomas Cooke. This is probably true as in looking at the 1861 census, she has a different religion than the rest of the family (Wesleyan Methodist). Everyone else is Episcopalian.

I have submitted a link for you to eventually approve to connect Mary Ann (Kidd) Cooke as a daughter of James and Mary (Ferris) Kidd.

I have also submitted links to show the children of Thomas and Mary Ann (Kidd) Cooke whose grave sites I know of, to have the mother Mary Ann (Kidd) Cooke who died in 1851.

I like to put a date of birth into Find A Grave, when known, if only approximate, so the family members will show up on Find A Grave in the order of birth. My estimated birth years are often based on census info, or death records, or other sources than what is on the tombstone. I am sorry if this has caused you issues. Feel free to ignore my changes.

I perhaps am more obsessed about linking people than I should be. I just find it very helpful to see the whole family together.
