Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired office worker and live in Brandon Manitoba and genealogy has been my main hobby (addiction) for many years. It all started by wandering our local cemetery and noticing so many old headstones - so I started taking photos of them - this led me to "find a grave" and I have entered many of our older stones. This led to another old cemetery in the area (burials prior to 1925), and then out to the smaller towns around Brandon and to many areas of the world where my ancestors had lived. They came from Northern Ireland, England and Scotland.
My family tree is extensive, but my main lines are Montgomery, Barton, Rixon, Bothwell and Nicholson.

RE: Grandparents
Merry Christmas, Dale, I just transferred your family to you. You might want to check on where Robina died - sometimes my fingers hit the wrong key - but I love our cemetery and remembering all those who are now sleeping there!

Allan Cameron # 87334494
I have made some notes on a photo caption concerning Allan Cameron who was the son of Alexander Cameron and Margaret Smith. (I do not want this transferred as I am trying to transfer my limited pages out in advance of a trip).

I have recently been working on Allan's maternal family which was the Leslie Smith Family of South Gower Twp, Grenville, ON.
Leslie Smith # 105680274 & Frances Harbison Smith # 105680353. See motes under photo on his page.

One of the Smith's children was Margaret Smith Cameron who moved to Brandon after her spouse, Alexander Cameron, died in South Gower, Grenville 28 Jun 1879. Margaret and Alexander had several children who moved west with Margaret about 1880- 1881 to Brandon.

Can you possibly confirm that Margaret was not buried in the same cemetery as Allan Cameron, her son? Do you have those records by any chance? Otherwise, she was probably moved east to be buried in the South Gower Cemetery in Grenville. Her death record in Brandon was under the name Margaret Camison. Not Cameron. 23 Jan 1903

RE: Wm Ployart - St. George's Cemetery
Just transferred the memorial. Please let me know if there are any others and I would be happy to assist. My hometown is Drummondville so I know the area very well. I no longer live in Canada, but would be happy to try to find out anything you might have a question about!

All the best

Yes! I am very excited to meet another Montgomery.

So your grandmother was the sister of my Great Grandfather Archibold if I understand it correctly.

Archibold was the father of George (my grandfather) who was the father of Frederick (my father).

My dad will be excited when he hears I met a Montgomery. Other then My Grandpa George's sister Margerite I've never had the honor of meeting another Montgomery family member. Archibold and his wife and young son Paul died long before I came along and Aunt Marg died in about 1990 I believe.

Grandpa always said he was Scottish. I believe the story goes that they were from Scotland. Even had castles and were close to Queen Mary of Scots. When the religious stuff began some went to Ireland. (Probably the Ireland connection.)

I went to Scotland in 2012 and found out that some Montgomery's of power remained there. One was a head politicion about a hundred years agao and served in Glasgow. He is buried in Glasgow Necropolis. (Was honored to sit in his chair and visit his burial site while there.) Not sure how he adds up but from what I gather probably a distant distant distant family member lol.

And then of course Canada. Archibolds family as I understand it followed the railroad from East to west in Canada as they were railroad workers. Archibold then moved south to Seattle, WA area where he, his wife and kids resided until death.

I am the great grandaught of Archibald as well. Archibald had two sons and a daughter. George, Margerite and Paul. George was my grandfather. He had one son named Frederick Adams Montgomery. I have one brother Brice Adams Motgomery and a sister Lauren Ann Montgomery.

I would love to hear your relation to Archibald.

Grace Short grave
Dear Janet Nicholson,

This is my grandmother who died of meningitis tragically while staying in Winnipeg, arriving in 1912 or 13 from England with my grandfather Samuel Percy and my mother Gwen(then aged 4)who returned to England just before Christmas 1915 after she died. My mother died 18 months ago at 102 and often told us of leaving her mother in hospital(we assume she had just died) and hearing her saying to Percy 'take Gwen'. I can't find any record of them arriving or leaving as yet, as I don't know the name of the ship or the ports.
Percy died in 1936 so I never knew him. This record came up as a complete surprise. Maybe one day I will come and find the place. Is there only the one memorial now, or does Grace have a stone?
